Just a heads up, though I fully stand behind this book and review, it does contain affiliate links.
In early 2014 I decided to quit my job, move out of my apartment, and buy a one way ticket to Finland in order to finally live my dream of backpacking across Europe.
Before I left, I had one burning question in my heart: what should I wear so I don’t look like a tourist and get mugged, stabbed, or worse: mocked in a language I didn’t speak?
My quest, like most, took me to Google where I discovered an article by Nomadic Matt that answered this very question. I read a few more articles on this same site and eventually purchased his Ebook that promised to share the secrets of travel hacking with me; even how to score a free plane ticket (which I later did).
I was instantly intrigued.
The Ultimate Guide to Travel Hacking Review
When I came across Matt’s Travel Hacking Guide, I was definitely curious. “Hacking” is a pretty common buzzword thrown around these days, but I was interested nonetheless. I think the promise of that free plane ticket plus the money-back guarantee really sold me (plus it was only like 30 bucks so it was worth the risk even if I only learned a thing or two).
Not only did Nomadic Matt’s Ultimate Guide to Travel Hacking show me exactly how to get a free plane ticket to my destination, but it was filled to the brim with up-to-date travel hacking tips.
I couldn’t put it down. It was full of actionable insider information and basically gave me a step-by-step guide on how to travel Europe for free. The fact that he keeps it up to date with new versions is just icing on the cake. No more random outdated internet information, hoorah!
