Travelling King - Finance Planner turning holiday dreams into a reality!

Luxury Travel

Luxury travel is generally associated as something expensive and only for the super-rich, but it doesn’t mean that you actually need to take a loan out or a apply for a credit card to get access to five-star experiences.

The trick is finding a travel destination that provides luxury experiences and of course a destination that offers great deals. Don’t forget, luxury travel can mean different things to different people. If you’re a millionaire, then luxury travel is going to be a heck of a lot different than it is for us every day Joe’s. At the end of the day, if you put your mind to it and save your pennies, you can enjoy luxury experiences such as a honeymoon in the Maldives, hiring a helicopter in Iceland, hire a private yacht in Greece – the possibilities are endless!

Having a background in finance, it means that I can provide tips on how to enjoy luxury travel and how to save your pennies to meet your goals and dreams.
