Affordable daily luggage storage at trusted shops and hotels around the world. Better than leaving your luggage at the airport - if they offer luggage hold anymore!

If you're flying in/out of the UK, then National Express is one of the most inexpensive ways to travel to/from airports and overland to other cities.


A comprehensive list of accommodation worldwide. Complete with maps, hotel info and reviews. Choose by location or by price!

Hostels cater for everyone. Travel on a budget and stay in dorms. Or you can choose from their luxury range and stay in double/twin rooms instead.


Skyscanner can also show you a list of car rental companies and their prices so you can scan for the best deal on one page.


World class coaching holidays to various destinations in Asia. They specialise in China but have also opened up tours in South America too.

Wendy Wu also think about the solo traveller. Perfect for travelling with like minded people when you dont have a travelling companion.

The leaders in small group adventure tours, (dont worry, not extreme stuff!). You have the benefit of locally based guides plus the flexibility to do your own thing too.

A Trip Advisor company that sells sightseeing tours and activities at many locations around the world. You can read the reviews on Trip Advisor.
