Flashpacking hits that sweet spot between travelling the world on $50 a day and living it up in 5-star hotels. I view it as travelling on a mid-range budget with business-class flights and the occasional luxury hotel and cruise thrown in for good measure.

Valuing comfort over frugality is at the core of flashpacking. This style of travel need not cost a fortune but you need to do your research and know where and how to spend your travel pounds.

This is where I can help you. I have been a flashpacker for the past decade and there are few things I enjoy more than bagging a travel bargain.

On this page, you will find links to my best tips for affordable luxury travel, including hotel and business travel reviews and how to book your perfect cruise.
