Luxury Travel Hacks

Helping YOU Travel As Luxuriously As You Can, As Cheap As You Can!

Types of Travel

Ever heard of a one way or repositioning cruise? Or road tripping? Both are fantastic types of travel and great luxury travel hacks

One way cruises are AWESOME because not only are you experiencing places, enjoying the luxury of a cruise ship but also incorporating your travel all in one. If you leave from one place and some days later arrive at a new one without the cost of a flight you are certainly winning.

Another luxurious way of travelling is road tripping. Of course, this is on the proviso of a being in a great campervan, motorhome, caravan or RV.  For me this includes a fixed bed (one that does not need to be set up each and every day), access to power, even when off the grid, and ideally a toilet and shower. All these luxuries make road tripping a great and affordable way to travel. 

Again, linking these different types of travel with flexibility, frequent flyer hacks, travel deals or local travel will see you get great bang for your buck through luxury travel hacking

Review of a Maui Campervan New Zealand

We knew we wanted to campervan around New Zealand. We therefore had to figure out which rental company to use for our family of 4 to explore the North Island and South Island for 32 days. The interesting part was that we knew absolutely nothing about campervans or travelling this way across a country, likewise campervan hire in NZ. We didn’t know the terminology with campervans and of course being Canadian we would have to drive on the opposite side of the road! So after many YouTube videos, reading reviews, and asking many other travellers we decided on going with a Maui Campervan, New Zealand.

Kiwi Campers & Happy Campers NZ

We spent five incredible weeks travelling New Zealand in a rented self-contained Volkswagen Transporter from Kiwi Campers and Happy Campers NZ. It was an unforgettable experience and we often joke that New Zealand has ruined the rest of the world for us. We were really happy with the VW Transporter although we had some issues with Happy Campers Auckland which we’ll discuss below.
