We need your help! Last year, we started updating all our destination guides. There are over 300 of them covering cities and countries around the globe. And, despite COVID, we were actually able to update most of them.
However, since the team and I are still restricted from traveling to a large portion of the world due to the pandemic, there is only so much we can do. There’s just a lot of information we can’t update because we’re not there, on the ground, taking notes.
So, I’m reaching out to ask for your help in looking over our guides and making sure they are as accurate as possible. We especially need help with:
- Restaurant prices
- Grocery prices
- Ways to save money
- Safety advice
Museums rarely come and go, and we can look at operating hours easily on their websites. But what about those things that constantly change that you can’t really Google?
For example, how much has the price of groceries gone up? How much is a dinner out? A glass of wine? What’s the new local app that finds parking deals or campervan sites or is the local version of Uber? What are some hot new attractions or new ways to save money?
Things like that are what we need your help with.
We’re looking for locals with knowledge of the following destinations:
- Cook Islands
- French Polynesia
- Hong Kong
- The Netherlands
- New Zealand
You can find a link to the guides here and see what we already have for your destination. While we list countries above, if we have a guide to your city in one of our country guides, we DEFINITELY want tips for there too. We need help with cities as well as countries as a whole.
If you live in one of our listed destinations, fill out this form with whatever tips and information you can.
As a thank-you for helping us, we’ll give you one of the following:
- Two free months of Nomadic Matt Plus
- 50% off our Business of Blogging course
- 50% off the TravelCon Virtual Pass
- Three free guidebooks of your choice
Moreover, we’re going to do a draw and one person will win a $100 cash prize!
That’s all! Thanks for your help. If you have any questions, shoot me an email.
Book Your Trip: Logistical Tips and Tricks
Book Your Flight
Find a cheap flight by using Skyscanner or Momondo. They are my two favorite search engines because they search websites and airlines around the globe so you always know no stone is left unturned.
Book Your Accommodation
You can book your hostel with Hostelworld. If you want to stay somewhere other than a hostel, use Booking.com as they consistently return the cheapest rates for guesthouses and cheap hotels.
Don’t Forget Travel Insurance
Travel insurance will protect you against illness, injury, theft, and cancellations. It’s comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong. I never go on a trip without it as I’ve had to use it many times in the past. My favorite companies that offer the best service and value are:
- SafetyWing (best for everyone)
- Insure My Trip (for those over 70)
- Medjet (for additional evacuation coverage)
