Resources

By traveling the world permanently for the last years we have learned a lot. And we have made many mistakes. Mistakes in the form of way too expensive hotel rooms, flights and taxi fares and mistakes that have cost us a lot of time. With this page, we want to help you avoid making the same mistakes as we did. We are going to help you save a lot of time searching the internet for the best fares and show you how to find the best hotels, airlines, bus tickets, taxis and whatever else you need to make your next nude vacation a perfect one!

Find the best accommodation deals

Unfortunately, most nudist resorts are not (yet) available on the major booking sites. Have a look at our Destinations page where you can find updated booking information about the places where we’ve been and if you’re lucky we even wrote an Ultimate Naturist Guide for the region you want to visit!
In any other case, the following websites will certainly help you on your way as well.

 

Nude - Nudist's Ultimate Destination Explorer
NUDE is the world’s most complete resource for nudist hotels, resorts and campings. Enter your country or region of preference in the search bar and you’ll find an overview of the nudist opportunities. NUDE will also give an indication about which facilities are available and about how to contact the place. After your visit you can put a review to help future visitors.

 

Our all-time favorite when it comes to getting the best hotel deals. Booking.com has over 1 million properties to choose from, including hotels, apartments, B&B’s and we believe they list the most naturist resorts as well (although there are not many). You get free cancellation until a couple of days before arrival and the best price guarantee.

 

Agoda
Agoda offers great rates all over the world but mostly in Asian countries. While we traveled through Sri Lanka, Bali, and Thailand we used Agoda a lot to search for hotels. They have a list of about 500 000 accommodation options and received more than 4 million reviews.

 

Hotels.com
We find Hotels.com not as good as Booking.com or Agoda but they have the advantage that for every 9 nights you book you get the 10th night free night (not on all accommodations though). We love free stuff and that’s why we check this website from time to time.

 

airbnb
The world leader in private home and apartment rentals with about 2.5 million listings around the world. This is, in particular, an interesting option for the nudist traveler who doesn’t like to stay at nudist resorts. On Airbnb you can rent complete apartments and houses as small or large as you prefer where you can be comfortably naked in all privacy. We used Airbnb a lot in Bali to get private villas with a garden and swimming pool.

homeaway
HomeAway is the older sister of AirBnB but hasn’t grown as large. While the rates at AirBnB generally tend to be better, we’ve noticed that HomeAway sometimes works better in cities. So it’s worth to give it a try and compare prices.

 

Find the best flights deals

The days when we only flew with national airlines are long gone… It seems like almost every other day a new player appears on the flight market. Giving even better deals and sharper prices. Never before has it been so difficult to find the perfect flight deal. Even specialized companies like below-mentioned websites struggle with this. But they will probably be the best you can find.
Important: Low-cost airlines are great when you travel light and short distances, but when you want to pick your seat, have luggage or (for some reason) like airplane food they are often more expensive than others. Do check the airline’s policy on these things before making a booking!

 

Skyscanner
Skyscanner is the most famous website of its kind and one we use all the time. We can honestly say that for about 85% of the time they will give the best deal. Some other options we like are that they have the “Anywhere” option as a destination in case you want to surprise yourself (or you want the cheapest getaway ever) and that they allow you to search on flexible dates or even full months to find the best deals.

 

momondo
Another big player on the market is Momondo and although we don’t have proof we do think that they include more low-cost airlines than Skyscanner does. Their calendar view also shows you the cheapest periods to travel. But be careful, there are rumors on the internet about Momondo showing non-existing deals in their listings to draw your attention (you can’t actually book them though).

 

jetradar
Somewhere in the middle of Momondo and Skyscanner, you can find JetRadar. They did give us the best deals from time to time so we like to mention them here but their search options are more limited than the previous ones. When you found a deal on one of the others, JetRadar is a good place to double-check your choice.

 

Google-Flights
Google likes to get a bit of everything and also in the flight deals market. We find their search system rather complicated but they do include many airlines. Just like JetRadar it’s a good place to double-check previously found deals.

 

secretflying
A whole other type of website is Secret Flying. What they do is scan the internet for special flight deals and publish them. If you’re flexible with your travel period and destination, it might be a good idea to have a look here for inspiration. Sometimes they can get you to the other side of the world and back for a couple of hundreds of dollars.

 

Find the best train, bus & taxi deals

With the uprise of low-cost airlines during the last 10 years or so, overland traveling has become a rather expensive and often very time-consuming alternative. But low cost isn’t everything. As mentioned before, the final price can sometimes be more than double than what was advertised initially. And then we’re not even talking about the ecological footprint that comes with flying. So it’s a good idea to have a look into the following options as well.

 

RailEurope
When traveling through Europe, the train is often the most comfortable and very fast way to get from one city to another. But if you don’t plan this well, you can lose a lot of money on expensive train tickets. RailEurope compares schedules, fares, maps, and rail passes for over 50 different train companies across the European train networks. This makes them the number one distributor of train tickets in the world.

 

seat-61
While RailEurope is the best choice for your train tickets in Europe, The Man in Seat 61 covers the market in all other continents. They have updated information on time tables, routes, prices and even train conditions (important in several parts of the world). Especially for long journeys or epic train rides, this is certainly website you want to consult.

 

rome2rio
Rome 2 Rio is probably the most complete transportation website on this planet. Its main goal is to help you find the fastest and/or cheapest way to get from point A to point B. Wherever those points may be. Just enter your departure and arrival destinations and it will give you the bus, train, plane or boat routes and how much they cost.
Because it’s such a large site, it can impossibly cover everything. We often use it to get an indication and then search further on more specific train/bus/airline sites.

 

busbud
BusBud is the top resource for finding bus tickets in North America, South America, and Europe. They currently operate in 80 different countries and have more than 2 million routes. We think that the major advantage of this website is safety and speed. No need to search the internet to find crappy bus line websites in some language you only half understand, no need to enter your credit card details in those crappy websites. Everything is arranged within the easy to use the website of BusBud.

 

uber
Taxi drivers are infamous for ripping off tourists. It’s sad but true. They charge additional costs, take you for a tour around the city when your hotel is actually just around the corner and horror stories exist of people being robbed by their driver. Uber is the perfect solution to that. Most of the time they are cheaper than a regular taxi and the price is defined from the moment your ride is confirmed. If you pay with credit card to Uber, there isn’t even a physical exchange of money. Because your account keeps the details of the driver, Uber is a much safer way to travel than regular taxis. Especially in more “exotic” countries.

 

blablacar
The system of BlaBlaCar is simple but genius, someone is going from one place to another and has a couple of free spaces in the car. If you happen to go the same way, you can take up those places and help paying for gas. You just have to request a seat, the owner approves and off you go. It’s cheap, it’s local and often it’s a much more interesting way of traveling than a train or bus.

 

Find the best car and RV rental deals

Car rentals are also a great way to spend much of unnecessary money. Trust us, we’ve been there. Many travelers go to the websites of companies they know: Hertz, National, Alamo,… and book whatever there is available. Just because they don’t know that there are other options. Lots of other options. Luckily there are websites that compare rental prices at different companies and show you the best deals. What’s even more interesting, these websites often get better deals than if you would book via the car rental company. To give you an example, at the time of writing we have a Hertz rental car which we booked via RentalCars.com. We pay 14 USD per day for that car. If we had booked exactly the same car via the Hertz website, we would be paying 24 USD per day. Go figure…
Important tip: Play with your dates! Rental for a week is often cheaper than for 6 days. A month can be cheaper than 28 days. Just drop off the car a couple of days earlier, they won’t care.

 

economy-bookings
Different websites work with different car rental companies and receive different deals. It’s sometimes hard to see the forest through the trees. We have done several tests with these websites for all around the world destinations and Economy Bookings overall gives the best deals.

 

Hotwire
Hotwire also has some great car rental deals and came up as the cheapest option in North and South America. They also have a great rating system, make sure to have a look at these rates before making your reservation. Some of the rental companies they work together with are… ehm… not really the best ones. That’s how we once had to tape our bumper together in California because we were afraid it would fly away.

 

rentalcars.com
Rentalcars.com only works together with the best rental car companies and therefore their prices are sometimes higher than Economy Bookings or Hotwire. Nevertheless, we have been able to find some great deals on this website like the 14 USD per day one in the introduction.

 

Outdoorsy
Outdoorsy is a new type of RV rental platform. Not only can you rent authentic RVs around the world, they also have the option to rent out your own RV during times when you don’t need it and while it’s sitting on your driveway anyway. Outdoorsy is safe, easy, fully insured, and has a great local selection. They are free to join and have no membership fees of any kind.

 

Find the best travel insurance

What are the odds that something will happen during those couple of days or weeks that you’re on holiday? Very little, we know. But yet people get struck by lightning from time to time… what can we say? Sh*t happens. The last thing you want to do while you’re on holiday is to worry. If you’re getting sick in India you don’t want a private hospital to be too expensive. You don’t want to get sick in the USA in any case without insurance. And if someone bumps into your rental car in Bangkok you don’t want to be listening to some Thai officials. You want someone else to take care of that. Here are the best ones to do so.

 

worldnomads
What started as a small insurance company for long term backpackers has grown to a big player on the market. World Nomads have a high emergency and health coverage for residents of more than 150 countries. What makes them very special among others is their very easy to use search engine, you can get a quote, even if you’re already traveling and book right there and now.

 

allianz
Allianz is probably the best-known travel insurance in the world and no doubt that it’s certainly one you can rely on. Millions of travelers are currently exploring the world trust on one of the many Allianz plans. Get in touch with them to get the right plan for your trip.

 

Find the best tour and activity companies

People travel for many different reasons, some like to spend as much time as possible baking their naked butts at the beach or near the swimming pool, some only go to places where they can enjoy excellent food and others want to see as much as possible of the region they’re visiting. Many hotels have their own tour desk and from our experience, we know that their tours are often not the cheapest around. It just takes a lot of time to find the best deal. But that doesn’t have to happen. Below websites give you some of the best tours and activities around the world. You can book directly on their website or take their prices back to your hotel to make the owner blush. That’s up to you.

 

getyourguide

We can go on and on about the options that Get Your Guide offers. Tours, cooking classes, skip the line tickets for events or shows, sightseeing buses, day cruises, you name it. Get Your Guide has options all around the world and can make the planning of your activities much easier.

 

viator
Similarly to Get Your Guide, Viator offers all kinds of different tours in places around the globe. Their search options will let you choose from different categories to find exactly what you’ve been looking for. Do make sure to read the comments of your preferred tour before booking because some of the companies they work with tend to be much better than others.

 

Other deals

So, by now we’ve given most of our knowledge of the travel industry to you. We hope that it will help you to find the greatest hotels, the cheapest flights, the coolest train rides, the most awesome tours, the nicest rental cars, the best travel insurance and the most wonderful naked vacation ever! And there’s even a little bit more…

 

groupon
If you like wellness and sauna or you want to try a new restaurant, on Groupon you can find lots of deals that will get you in for less than half of the price. They’re also interesting for show tickets and even hotel deals or vacation packages. Do make sure to read the fine print and the special conditions/exceptions though.

 

tripadvisor
Who doesn’t know Tripadvisor? In the world of travel, they are often the best website to give you an indication whether a certain place is worth your visit or not, all based on reviews from previous visitors. We could have put TripAdvisor in probably every category on this page, but we didn’t. Mainly because we don’t like their flight and hotel deals function. It’s confusing and honestly they’ve rarely given us the best results, although we’ve tried it a lot.
What we do use Tripadvisor for is to find good restaurants whenever we visit a new place. In this section, they’ve rarely failed to please us.
