One of my biggest dreams was to be able to travel. I worried that I would never be able to afford to travel since I’m not super wealthy. Do you feel that way too? I couldn’t have been more wrong!
I recently came across a book called, Triple your Travel by Brendan from the blog Bren on the Road. It has seriously changed the way I look at travel and how affordable it actually is to the average person, like you and me.

Bren is from New Zealand and in 2011, he quit his job as an accountant to pursue travel full time. I love that he uses his skills with personal finance and frugality to help fund his travel adventures. It actually costs him less to travel than it does when he goes home to visit family.
He wrote Triple your Travel to show how anyone with any budget can afford to travel to countries that they have only dreamed about.
I read the book and I learned a ton of new ways to save on every aspect of travel: flights, hotels, entertainment, food, and more. I consider myself pretty money savvy so I was floored at all of the new information that is in this book!
What Does the Book Teach You?
Triple your Travel is packed full of great info. You will learn a ton of useful tips and tricks to help you plan your trips. Bren goes into details of all the different ways to save on:
- booking flights (the best times and where to look for the deals)
- where to find the best accommodation for your budget (from apartments to hotels to couch surfing)
- food (how to live like a local and eat for a few bucks a day)
- and so much more!
I love that he gives examples of what his average travel days are like and how much he spends. He also tells you what you need to do to save money even before you start planning a trip.
I also love that there are examples for the best places in each region of the world, the places you want to go to get the most bang for your buck. He lists the best places to travel in:
- Latin America
You’ll learn to navigate the travel landscape in a way that novice travellers never do, by using timing, seasons and
currency changes to slash your travelling costs and keep you on the road longer.
Who is this Book For?
This book isn’t for everyone. If you have small kids and are on a strict schedule, you may get some great tips from this book but you won’t be able to do a lot of the advice that is listed.
Triple your travel is perfect for people who have a flexible schedule so that they can travel during the off seasons. It’s great for young couples or people who want to travel solo or even in a group.
People who are minimalist and who want to travel for weeks or even months at a time will get the most value out of this book.
Don’t get me wrong, I think that getting Bren’s full list of resources for the best flight and hotel booking sites makes the book worth the price but you probably won’t be able to use a lot of his tips if you are looking for a typical family vacation, like Disney.
This is for people who truly want to travel the world and immerse themselves into the culture.
What is Included?
Triple your Travel is priced at $37. I think that is a bargain for all of the information that I learned and it is going to save me hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars throughout my travels.
For that price you will get:
- instant access to the ebook
- free lifetime updates, because the industry is constantly changing
- Triple your Savings spreadsheet to get your finances in order
- The Solo Traveler’s Handbook
- The Big List: Tools and Resources that Bren uses to score amazing deals.

If you are on the fence about the book and want to make sure it will be worth it, Bren offers a money back guarantee.
You can also sign up for Bren’s free ebook on traveling to give you an idea about what he can teach you.
I really liked Triple your Travel and I can’t wait to start planning my trips with the advice that I learned. Check it out and let us know what you think.
