Google flights is amazing... you didn't say that the map view is another filter on google flights, which some people dont seem to get (move the map around to change destinations). Google flights is great as you dont need to input a destination. You also should remind folks to use private / incognito mode in browser to prevent tracking cookies "seeing" you constantly checking flight prices (i almost had to pay extra for a flight from Australia to the UK because of tracking cookies). I used to use the "hopper" app but found it unreliable, its prices are always higher than what you can get elsewhere or even direct from the airline. Google flights and skyscanner are my current favourites.

jbberinger 5000 before taxes, remove 30% right away. Then if you live in any half desirable coastal area deduct another 30-40% for rent/mortgage/property taxes. It is no wonder the 50% of Americans don’t have 500$ saved up and barely make ends meet, let alone travel.

In the US, many companies pay you twice a month, and a line that got cut off from this video factored in whether you have paid time off from work. And again, everyone's budgets and situations are different so research costs to see what you're comfortable with.

I typically find that the less you plan and book ahead the more freedom and adventure you end up having. To be flexible is the most important thing, and a detailed itinerary is a great way to ruin a vacation. People get severe fomo when travelling and try to check out as many places as possible, but you really want quality over quantity. Just get your backpack, find and befriend some locals and especially avoid Trip Advisor. No matter where you find yourself there are friendly people, at least from my experience, from from Senegal and Gambia in the west of Africa to Mombasa in the east, sailing around the North sea, travelling across the Tibetan plateau, rural China and here at home in Scandinavia as well.

A few ways to do this. Deselect nonstop from when you're searching for flights, then look for an airline with a home base between your destinations (KLM, for example, is based in the Netherlands and will likely stopover there between the US and Asia. Call and check if they let you do a longer stopover for a fee.) There are also sites like AirWander that let you browse some options. I've not used this personally but it does seem like a good starting point for checking routes and prices! Lastly, you can always try one way tickets and go forward one destination at a time. Low cost carriers can probably get you through certain parts of a continent easily enough, but it does take more planning in advance. – Natt

It depends on how much time you have. Do you really want to spend time looking for a SIM card while you could get it at the airport probably spending just a few bucks more?

Some airports have simcard booth that sell really cheap data plan, and you don't have to struggle going around the city to buy simcard. Like when i was taiwan few days ago, i got unlimited 5 days LTE for only below $10, and pretty much the same price even outside the airport. You can always find better deals even at the airport

I think you Missed parts of the video. You need to rewatch the part part that’s says you use the website to track flights you are looking for. Also, if you have to be a flexible traveler. When you get notified of the deal your looking for, you have to be able to clear your schedule. If you can’t do that, that means you are not a flexible traveler and you probably won’t be able to get the cheapest flights.

Been meaning to try out those Capsule hotels. As Rick Steves says, travel is accelerated living. I also like staying around one town for a few days to wind down and get used to finding good local deals and ‘eat local’. Eating like a tourist (i.e. hanging in touristy places, looking for english menus), going to a new town every day and never settling down gets expensive fast.

Great tips and descriptive video! JAPAN! We loved our 6 weeks in Japan - Tokyo, Osaka, Nara, Kyoto! Such a unique culture. The way you break down the prices is cool. In SE Asia we have found SO MANY cheap airlines. We love apps like Skyscanner and the basic Google Flights to get a good sense of what is out there. I have used Google Flights for probably most of the 30+ countries we have visited in the past 2 years. Your HostelWorld tip is a good one. Be sure to use Petsitting Apps like TrustedHousesitter as well to potentially save money or WorkAway if you are looking to meet new people and volunteer a little. Great video though on covering some of the basics! Your tip on downloading the apps NOW is something that I just stressed in my podcast today along with 12 other basic things to think about. Keep videos like these coming!!
