All the companies, websites and apps listed below are the exact ones we use for booking travel, have helped us to save money and have helped us to build the Wanderwalkers Youtube channel and blog. We highly recommend every single one of them and that’s why they are listed below. We would never promote a product or brand we don’t believe in. These are the best resources out there and we have compiled them all here on one page so they can help you too. We hope to continue to add more of our favourite brands, and even gear, to this list in the future.
