Lonely Planet Guidebooks & More

I get a guidebook for every trip. It’s so useful having history, restaurant recommendations, and cultural information.

Olloclip for Phone Photography

I love my 4-in-1 Olloclip for my iPhone, since it’s a lot smaller and lighter than my DSLR, yet I can still take great macro photos (my favorite!).

Airport Parking Reservations

Park N’ Fly

I generally avoid parking at the airport for more than a couple of days, but Park ‘N Fly has covered parking at affordable prices. They come to your car with a shuttle bus and drive you right up to your airport departure terminal. So quick and easy! I prefer them to airport parking at my local airport!

You may know from my Travel Tips pages that I really encourage travelers who want to delve into local life. And, one of the best ways I’ve found is through a Couchsurfing. A host can show you around their city, join you for a cup of tea, or even host you in their home. I’ve had so many great experiences, so read my tips for setting up your profile, finding a great host, and much more. (It’s not a home exchange, and it’s totally free.)


Motel 6

It’s known as a budget hotel, but I love them. They are very clean, quiet, the wifi works perfectly, and wherever I’ve stayed parking is free. Also, dogs can stay in your room for free. Also, I really appreciate that the floors are fake wood and not carpet. The furniture is similar to Ikea and quite nice.


Get the iOS or Android app or use the website to search for hotels. Of course, they’re originally known for some of the best flight deals.


Language Learning


How it Works

The idea is that all the tiny commissions add up. You do NOT need to purchase the item related to the linked item and you will NOT be charged anything additional.

Thanks so much for supporting Longest Bus Rides!
