Trusted Travel Resources
As a frequent traveller I often get asked which companies and businesses I prefer to use and book with for my own adventures. If you read through my content you'll see plenty of links to certain companies that I use as affiliates. An affiliate partnership means that should you choose to book or buy through my specific link, I will earn a small commission. Please note that this is at no extra cost to you. I'm paid directly by the businesses for advertising them.
I want to ensure you that I only partner with brands and businesses that I use personally for my own travels and have positive experiences with. Using them as an affiliate is beneficial to me as I can make recommendations that I feel good about, plus by making a small commission off the bookings, I'm able to continue the travel lifestyle that allows me to create and maintain this blog.
These are the main businesses and companies I recommend. Should you choose to book through these links I will earn a small commission which I am incredibly grateful for. Thank you for your support!
Hotels and Accommodation
I have two go-to's when it comes to accommodation: booking.com and hotels.com. I tend to use booking more because I'm a genius member (you get this status when you make multiple bookings through them) so I get extra perks including up to 15% off at some locations. Find my booking.com link here.
Hotels.com is also pretty good. They have their book 10 nights get 1 free which is nice but the nights to expire so I don't love that. However, I think it's worth to compare pricing. Find my hotels.com link here.
I've had to use travel insurance multiple times during my travels and always travel with it. I've used a few brands but my go-to now is SafetyWing. It's affordable, especially for those who travel long-term or have more of a nomadic life like I do. They also cover a lot of sports and activities including scuba diving which is important to me. You can find my SafetyWing link here. Also, if you like, you can read a bit more about them and my own insurance experiences in this post.
For car rentals, I've partnered with Rentalcars.com which allows you to check pricing with several popular options in the destination you choose. Brands like Hertz, Avis, Budget, and Enterprise all offer quotes through this site. Plus, most bookings can be cancelled if your plans change. Find my link for car rentals here.
Tours and Day Trips
Get Your Guide
For day trips or short multi-day trips I love and use Get Your Guide. They have great customer service and use local, trustworthy ground companies. I've used them from Egypt and Morocco to Ireland and Cyprus. You can find my Get Your Guide link here.
If you are looking for longer, group tours I highly recommend Intrepid Travel. I love their values and have had amazing travel experiences with them. Intrepid is also who I partner with for my group trips. My affiliate link for all Intrepid trips can be found here.
Clothing and Gear
I've been wearing lululemon since my university days. I love that the brand has become more size-inclusive and I can't complain about the quality (I still have a pair of lulu leggings from my uni days). I also swear by the invigorate legging- they are the only pair I've found that work with my bigger hips and smaller waist without falling down. My affiliate link for lululemon can be found here.
I partner with Canadian designer Diane Kroe who makes beautiful multi-way wear travel pieces. You'll see me wearing a lot of her clothing in my photos. Find her site here and use promo code HANNAH10 to save 10% (I earn commission off of this as well)
I also am affiliated with another Canadian clothing company called encircled. Again, you'll see me wear encircled clothing in many photos. It's a sustainable, ethical. and super comfortable clothing brand that I love to travel with. You can find my encircled link here.
Being a plus-size scuba diver, I know how stressful it can be to find a wetsuit that fits. This is something I've written about before on various sites based on my own (terrible) experiences. Recently, I've partnered with Mia of Truli Wetsuits, a Canadian brand that ships worldwide. I acted as her guinea pig in testing out new sizes and designs and absolutely love the outcomes. These wetsuits are cute and stylish and designed for women's bodies. The latest styles (Truli-Hapi and Truli-Ful The Beautiful) come in 21 different sizes. If you do decide to order, please include my name/blog when asked who sent you. This ensures I receive a commission for the referral. Learn more about Truli Wetsuits here.
