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.

Private Pool Villas in Phuket from Budget (less than $100) to Luxury Villas (more than $500)

Private Pool Villas in Phuket from Budget (less than $100) to Luxury Villas (more than $500)

Phuket is only of my favourite destinations, some people love it and some people hate it but to me, it's like a second home. Recently I did a lot of research on private pool villas in Phuket for our late honeymoon, I was a little surprised at the massive lack of information in regards to cheap pool villas in Phuket. I found that so many articles I read were super misleading, eg: saying you could get a private villa in Phuket for $100 per night but really the private villa was $300 per night! So I thought it would be a great idea to share all my research with you so you don't have to waste hours of your life (haha!). I'll break down the pool villas by price and different areas in Phuket to make it easier for you. We found that there were some surprisingly cheap villas in Phuket and obviously some pretty expensive pool…
