We have a few partnerships that help make our travels easy. Yes, we will get some affiliate kickback if you click through our links. We love these companies whether you click or not.
Global GameChangers – Explore the World. Serve Others. Change Your Life. This newly formed organization combines giving, travel, and side-hustle. When the founder, Eric Allen, finalized the details to launch and called me with his mission, we signed up immediately. Our Foundation is unique in that every penny donated and directed to it goes entirely to our strategic charity partners around the world and the causes in which our community is most passionate.
TrustedHouseSitters – Can you imagine getting free housing during your travels? Do you love watching or interacting with pets? This website does an excellent job of coordinating free stays for travelers while providing a service for pet owners. If you are in the category of owning pets, pet loving, or responsible enough to watch another person’s home, you should check out this website. Use our link to get a discount on your membership.

Lastpass – LastPass makes it easy to have strong passwords with access on all your devices for Free! You’re tired of setting, remembering (and forgetting) passwords. That’s why we created LastPass, a convenient password manager designed around data privacy. With seamless background sync, offline access, and an app for almost every device — you always have access to your passwords when, and where you need them.
Audible – It’s sometimes easier to listen to books than to read them. Using the subscription keeps the prices down and great books in my ear like my favorites Love Yourself, As a Man Thinketh, Tools of Titans, or Ego is the Enemy.
Grammarly – With the focus on our writing and content production, we leverage essential tools to help get our point across. This app has been UNBELIEVABLE, and it is a subscription that I will continue to use my professional career. I highly recommend looking into it if you have to send emails, create documents, or share important messages with people whose opinion you respect.
Babbel – LEARN A NEW LANGUAGE! At Babbel, we obsess over crafting the tools you need to start having practical, everyday conversations. We believe the sooner you begin to speak a new language, the sooner you’ll open yourself up to a world that’s bigger, richer and more inspiring.
MyPostcard – I love sending postcards with photos from our travels to friends and family back at home to show the beauty of what we are experiencing including a personal message to let them know I am thinking about them. $3.00 for you, $3.00 for me – sounds good, right?! Head on over to MyPostcard.com, create a new account using my friends-code “XPYHHH” and we both get to send our photos as real postcards to our favorite people all across the globe!
Airbnb – This is our main way that we book our room, apartment, hostel, you name it, on the road. The service does a great job of lining up a reliable place to stay. With reviews, you can trust and a very cost friendly approach, it makes it easy anywhere in the world. Use our link to get a discount on your first booking – http://www.airbnb.com/c/mjavit1
Google Fi – I heard about it on a podcast by a successful tech investor that travels the world. This is Google’s worldwide phone network that makes it possible to travel the globe, keep the same number, save money, get the data plan you need, and make it all VERY simple to use. We have loved the fact that it gives us FREE texting anywhere in the globe and taps into the best local plans.
Udemy – This educational portal will help you learn some of the skills you have been craving. I signed up for the SUPERLEARNER course to help me read faster and memorize more. There are a ton of courses that will help you get better at life.
ExpressVPN – Being secure on the road is a necessity! Having a VPN means that you are using a PRIVATE network when you are in a Starbucks in Peru, a hostel in Croatia, or a hotel in Japan. This travel tool helps keep your data secure when using the internet. It also helps you if you are looking to use your streaming video services as well. Not all countries allow you to use Sling, Hulu, or Netflix. By using a VPN, you can use servers in the US or other countries that allow you to. For all my sports buddies, it allows you to watch your favorite games on the road!
Priority Pass – LOUNGES!! Why are you still spending money at restaurants or bars at the airport? Why are you using the same Wifi as everyone else on the Public Airport wifi that is super slow? Get a comfortable seat between flights, a quick beer or cocktail, a snack or meal, and great wifi. Lounges (our video) make life great at the airport. I now often book longer layovers so we can catch up on emails and have free drinks/snacks. I’ve even used them to shower up and refresh after those 6+ hour flights. Definitely look into this if you have not already. It is one of our favorite travel tools and you will be surprised how cheap it is. You can get your money back after one or two flights.
Skyscanner – This is a top of our travel tools and has already saved us a couple of times on the road. We used to rely on Google Flights but after a few errors and miscalculations, Skyscanner is our go to. It will help you find the cheapest flights, hotels, or rental cars.
Tony Robbins – As you may know, Matt is a self-improvement junkie! Always reading, listening, and researching ways to improve our lives is a daily part of our journey around the world. Tony Robbins is the best life coach in the industry and will help you tap into a part of you that you never knew was possible. He did just that to us in November 2016 before we made the final decision to travel the world fulltime. Your best you is waiting to be discovered!
WPEngine – If you are thinking about starting your own blog on WordPress, definitely use this service. I used another WordPress hosting service and was burned. That service was even more expensive than WPEngine. These guys just know the business better than anyone else. Believe me, the time and energy wasted on a bad hosting service will drive you nuts. Look, if we can do a blog, so can you! Dig into your creative side, get on WordPress, and go!
CheapOair – Find huge cost savings on your flights, hotels, cars, or cruises.
Vegas.com – Everyone knows we love Las Vegas! We had a chance to live there for a year and have visited MANY times. It is definitely one of my favorite places on the planet. This website gives you access to deals if you ever decide to visit Sin City.
