Advertorial – We get a small commission for every booking you do via one of the links below. Thanks a lot for your support! 🙂
There is still a lot going on in the world (you have probably noticed that). Keep in mind that not everyone is as adventurous as you are.
There are still many people traveling around their own country or not traveling at all.
And now it is the perfect time to take advantage of that!
If you have some spare time and money for traveling, we strongly recommend not to wait until the popular places are crowded again…
We have explored some European places during the pandemic. It was surprising how empty some places were. Especially in the morning.
Travel Tip: Many private drivers offer an early pick up. You can discover the best instagrammable spots all on your own. Just ask if you can be picked up at about 3.30 am to 5 am, depending on your route. Even though you might not be a natural early bird, we highly recommend you doing it. A sunrise at a lonely beach or a waterfall in the jungle are definitely worth it!
Lots of hosts have had a hard time during the past months and they love to see you coming back.
That is why some of them give you crazy discounts for their nicest suites and fanciest rooms. But you will get discounted standard rooms as well
That way, you can either save tons of money on your travel OR enjoy rooms you wouldnt afford on a regular trip.
We decided to combine both of these options and got ourselves some dream bali villas for hanging out and enjoying ourselves. as well as some nice cozy budget rooms while travelling around the island and the vicinity.
Travel Tip: If you are a deal hunter, try snaptravel.com. They will send you recent deals with discounts from 30 % to 50 % exclusively via messenger or whatsapp.
There are lots more people who depend on their income from tourism. Drivers and tour guides are, of course, among them.
On Viator.com you can book tours and private drivers (with their vans of course) for the local rates.
There are not as high discounts as there are on accommodation, but the actual prices are quite low compared to before-corona-times
Travel Tip: Book your private driver online at the beginning of the trip and ask your driver if he will get you around for the rest of your journey.
You will support your driver with saving the commission for the booking platform and might find a new friend to travel around with.
As mentioned above, many people are still scared to travel outside their own country (or at all). But you will have to be quick with your bookings, because flight prices tend to rise quickly when people start booking their flights.
Airlines like Turkish Airlines, KLM and Air France are still having good offers available.
We love traveling to Bali in May or June because only few people are on holidays during these months. Furthermore, the dry season begins in May, so there is nice weather coming up!
The rainy season starts in November. During that time the temperatures are a little higher and you will very probably experience a natural shower every day.
If you are a surfer, you might want to visit Bali’s east coast for some nice big waves during that time.
