Renaissance Hotel, Downtown Dubai

5.2 billion dollars — that’s how much travelers are spending every year on fraudulent and misleading online booking transactions.

That’s why the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) are launching a “Search Smarter” education and awareness campaign this summer to educate travelers on the benefits of booking directly through company websites.

While I’m an optimist at heart and believe the world is made up of innately good people, the reality is that there are a few sour apples both in person and online with ulterior motives to mislead travelers that could cost them money.…

Introducing ili: The World's Fastest Offline Translator for Travelers | TheBlogAbroad.com

One of the biggest struggles of long-term travel is finding ways to communicate in foreign countries. While English is very much a universal language, it shouldn’t be expected for other countries to always cater to you, and that’s why I try and learn at least 10-15 words of the local language before I arrive so that my effort is acknowledged and people are more likely to help with my needs.…

If you’re accident-prone on the road like muah, then having travel insurance is simply non-negotiable. I’ve blogged before about the importance of being insured abroad, but I understand if it takes a canceled flight or lost baggage for you to finally be convinced 😉

I’m insured through Allianz and you can get a free quote for yourself at the end of this post, especially after learning about the app that you can use in conjunction with it.…

Traveling without insurance these days is like going on a Tinder date without an escape plan. Except you can’t undo and unmatch a real-life accident — which, if you’re of my special breed of clumsy, is probably inevitable.

I wrote about everything you need to know about travel insurance a few weeks back, and now I’m writing a follow-up post listing some of my quirky stories and mishaps that happened while abroad that travel insurance would have my back for.…

There’s no better thrill than biking through a new city, wind blowing through your hair, and you unleashing the child within.

Bike-riding is one of the most eco-friendly modes of transportation, and countries like the Netherlands and Denmark can be a biker’s paradise for navigating the city.

I once tried to rent a bike in Barcelona and failed, as I needed a national card to open up an account and unlock a bike.…
