Decades spent travelling means you don't need to make the same travel mistakes!

Here's how to travel more, spend less, and feel better about the places you visit. 

We've all been there. Too much to do. Too little time. Too many dreams (no, that's not right, there can never be too many!) - just so many things you want to do and want to do well. 

Well, when it comes to travel, you've come to the right place.

Here's how to make it all easier. And make it more meaningful at the same time.

BUSINESS CLASS REVIEWS

Flying business class: is it worth it? The answer of course is: it depends.

Airlines change, routes vary and the even the layout of the cabin can play a part in whether or not you choose to book a ticket.

Some business class cabins allow you to sit next to someone else; in others it’s physically impossible.

Then there are all the different names: Business Class, First Class, Upper Suite, Club World.

That's why we've created this dedicated section on business class reviews. So that you can see what flying business class is really like before you book your ticket.

See our most recent reviews on British Airways Business Class, Cathay Pacific on the flight to Hong Kong, Royal Brunei en route to Australia, Virgin Atlantic Business Class and more. 

So that you can make the right choice for your trip.

PACKING AND PLANNING LISTS

With travel checklists come peace of mind and a better trip. But lists are not something to get lost in. They're guidelines. Something to use to begin with before life takes over and has its own way with you.
