• Mark Twain Travel Quotes

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the Earth all one’s lifetime.
To do something, say something, see something, before anybody else — these are the things that confer a pleasure compared with which other pleasures are tame and commonplace, other ecstasies cheap and trivial. Lifetimes of ecstasy crowded into a single moment.

travel over money quotes

It is the loveliest fleet of islands [ Hawaii ] that lies anchored in any ocean.
No alien land in all the world has any deep strong charm for me but that one [ Hawaii ], no other land could so longingly and so beseechingly haunt me, sleeping and waking, through half a lifetime, as that one has done. Other things leave me, but it abides; other things change, but it remains the same.   For me the balmy airs are always blowing, its summer seas flashing in the sun; the pulsing of its surfbeat is in my ear; I can see its garlanded crags, its leaping cascades, its plumy palms drowsing by the shore, its remote summits floating like islands above the cloud wrack; I can feel the spirit of its wildland solitudes, I can hear the splash of its brooks; in my nostrils still lives the breath of flowers that perished twenty years ago.

This is what holidays, travels, vacations are about. It is not really rest or even leisure we chase. We strain to renew our capacity for wonder to shock ourselves into astonishment once again. — Shana Alexander
I beg young people to travel. If you don’t have a passport, get one. Take a summer, get a backpack and go to Delhi, go to Saigon, go to Bangkok, go to Kenya. Have your mind blown. Eat interesting food. Dig some interesting people. Have an adventure. Be careful. Come back and you’re going to see your country differently, you’re going to see your president differently, no matter who it is. — Henry Rollins
Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in an office or mowing your lawn. Climb that damn mountain. — Jack Kerouac
For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake.

travel over money quotes

Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey. — Pat Conroy
No man is brave that has never walked a hundred miles. If you want to know the truth of who you are, walk until not a person knows your name. Travel is the great leveler, the great teacher, bitter as medicine, crueler than mirror-glass. A long stretch of road will teach you more about yourself than a hundred years of quiet. — Patrick Rothfuss
It is always sad to leave a place to which one knows one will never return. Such are the melancolies du voyage: perhaps they are one of the most rewarding things about traveling. — Gustave Flaubert

travel over money quotes

The wish to travel seems to me characteristically human: the desire to move, to satisfy your curiosity or ease your fears, to change the circumstances of your life, to be a stranger, to make a friend, to experience an exotic landscape, to risk the unknown. — Paul Theroux
Although I deeply love oceans, deserts and other wild landscapes, it is only mountains that beckon me with that sort of painful magnetic pull to walk deeper and deeper into their beauty. They keep me continuously wanting to know more, feel more, see more. — Victoria Erickson

travel over money quotes

• Travel With Friends Quotes

A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles. — Tim Cahill

We are all travelers in the wilderness of this world, and the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend. — Robert Louis Stevenson

travel over money quotes

• Adventure Travel Quotes

Adventure is worthwhile in itself. — Amelia Earhart
If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine; it is lethal. — Paulo Coelho
Most of us abandoned the idea of a life full of adventure and travel sometime between puberty and our first job. Our dreams died under the dark weight of responsibility. Occasionally the old urge surfaces, and we label it with names that suggest psychological aberrations: the big chill, a midlife crisis. — Tim Cahill
Only by going alone in silence, without baggage, can one truly get into the heart of the wilderness. All other travel is mere dust and hotels and baggage and chatter. — John Muir
Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. — Edward Abbey

travel over money quotes

Once a journey is designed, equipped, and put in process, a new factor enters and takes over. A trip, a safari, an exploration, is an entity, different from all other journeys. It has personality, temperament, individuality, uniqueness. A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless.   We find after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us. Tour masters, schedules, reservations, brass-bound and inevitable, dash themselves to wreckage on the personality of the trip. Only when this is recognized can the blown-in-the glass bum relax and go along with it. Only then do the frustrations fall away. In this a journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it. — John Steinbeck
What is that feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? – it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies. — Jack Kerouac
A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for. — J.A. Shedd
Do not follow where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and make a trail. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

travel over money quotes

It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any. — Hugh Laurie
Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the Earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white. — Mark Jenkins

travel over money quotes

The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. — Christopher McCandless
Adventure is allowing the unexpected to happen to you. Exploration is experiencing what you have not experienced before. How can there be any adventure, any exploration, if you let somebody else – above all, a travel bureau – arrange everything before-hand? — Richard Aldington
Be careful because Cambodia is the most dangerous place you will ever visit. You will fall in love with it, and eventually it will break your heart. — Joel Brinkley

travel over money quotes

• Solo Travel Quotes

To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the most pleasant sensations in the world. — Freya Stark
Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. — Unknown
I can’t think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are five years old again. You can’t read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can’t reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses. — Bill Bryson
The true fruit of travel is perhaps the feeling of being nearly everywhere at home. — Freya Stark

travel over money quotes

When you’ve managed to stumble directly into the heart of the unknown – either through the misdirection of others, or better yet, through your own creative ineptitude – there is no one there to hold your hand or tell you what to do. In those bad lost moments, in the times when we are advised not to panic, we own the unknown, and the world belongs to us. The child within has full reign. Few of us are ever so free. — Tim Cahill
No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow. — Lin Yutang
He travels the fastest who travels alone. — Rudyard Kipling

travel over money quotes

Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection. — Lawrence Durrell
When the traveler goes alone he gets acquainted with himself. — Liberty Hyde Bailey
The man who goes alone can start today; but he who travels with another must wait till that other is ready. — Henry David Thoreau

travel over money quotes

I think one travels more usefully when they travel alone, because they reflect more. — Thomas Jefferson
Loving life is easy when you are abroad. Where no one knows you and you hold your life in your hands all alone, you are more master of yourself than at any other time. — Hannah Arendt
Personally I like going places where I don’t speak the language, don’t know anybody, don’t know my way around and don’t have any delusions that I’m in control. Disoriented, even frightened, I feel alive, awake in ways I never am at home. — Michael Mewshaw

travel over money quotes

I can speak to my soul only when the two of us are off exploring deserts or cities or mountains or roads. — Paulo Coelho
Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road. Healthy, free, the world before me. The long brown path before me leading me wherever I choose. — Walt Whitman

   

• Anthony Bourdain Travel Quotes

If you’re twenty-two, physically fit, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel – as far and as widely as possible. Sleep on floors if you have to. Find out how other people live and eat and cook. Learn from them – wherever you go.
Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life — and travel — leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks — on your body or on your heart — are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt.
It’s an irritating reality that many places and events defy description. Angkor Wat and Machu Picchu , for instance, seem to demand silence, like a love affair you can never talk about.   For a while after, you fumble for words, trying vainly to assemble a private narrative, an explanation, a comfortable way to frame where you’ve been and what’s happened. In the end, you’re just happy you were there — with your eyes open — and lived to see it.

travel over money quotes

Travel is about the gorgeous feeling of teetering in the unknown.
I’m a big believer in winging it. I’m a big believer that you’re never going to find the perfect city travel experience or the perfect meal without a constant willingness to experience a bad one. Letting the happy accident happen is what a lot of vacation itineraries miss, I think, and I’m always trying to push people to allow those things to happen rather than stick to some rigid itinerary.
Do we really want to travel in hermetically sealed popemobiles through the rural provinces of France, Mexico and the Far East, eating only in Hard Rock Cafes and McDonalds? … I know what I want. I want it all. I want to try everything once.

travel over money quotes

It seems that the more places I see and experience, the bigger I realize the world to be. The more I become aware of, the more I realize how relatively little I know of it, how many places I have still to go, how much more there is to learn.   Maybe that’s enlightenment enough – to know that there is no final resting place of the mind, no moment of smug clarity. Perhaps wisdom, at least for me, means realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go.
I think food, culture, people and landscape are all absolutely inseparable.
Food is everything we are. It’s an extension of nationalist feeling, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region, your tribe, your grandma. It’s inseparable from those from the get-go.
Southeast Asia has a real grip on me. From the very first time I went there, it was a fulfillment of my childhood fantasies of the way travel should be.

travel over money quotes

I wanted adventures. I wanted to go up the Nung river to the heart of darkness in Cambodia . I wanted to ride out into a desert on camelback, sand and dunes in every direction, eat whole roasted lamb with my fingers. I wanted to kick snow off my boots in a Mafiya nightclub in Russia. I wanted to play with automatic weapons in Phnom Penh, recapture the past in a small oyster village in France, step into a seedy neon-lit pulqueria in rural Mexico. I wanted to run roadblocks in the middle of the night, blowing past angry militia with a handful of hurled Marlboro packs, experience fear, excitement, wonder.   I wanted kicks – the kind of melodramatic thrills and chills I’d yearned for since childhood, the kind of adventure I’d found as a little boy in the pages of my Tintin comic books. I wanted to see the world – and I wanted the world to be just like the movies.
At this point I think my body is like an old car. Another dent ain’t gonna make a whole lot of difference. At best it’s a reminder that you’re still alive and lucky as hell. Another tattoo, another thing you did, another place you’ve been.

travel over money quotes

Without experimentation, a willingness to ask questions and try new things, we shall surely become static, repetitive, and moribund.
If I’m an advocate for anything, it’s to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. The extent to which you can walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food, it’s a plus for everybody. Open your mind, get up off the couch, move.
Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.

95 most inspirational travel quotes ever penned

Our favourite inspirational travel quotes have encouraged us to travel with abandon over the years. Perhaps they will do the same for you…

For us, there is no such thing as luxury travel; travel is, by default, a luxury. It is a privilege provided by the country of our birth, a privilege that many are not as fortunate to enjoy.

Sometimes, we have to pinch ourselves at just how ridiculous our lives have become: an ex-teacher and jobbing writer travelling the world for a living. It is absurd, it is astonishing, it is luxury.

When I first went travelling at 21 years old, my father gave me this quote scrawled on a piece of card.

inspirational travel quotes

It infused me with wanderlust. It encouraged me to get out of my comfort zone, make the most of my time, see the world and enjoy the freedom that comes with being on the road. It remains one of the most inspirational travel quotes I’ve read (even if Twain did not actually say it).

Today, 20 years and almost 100 countries later, it’s still in my wallet. Despite its tattered and dishevelled appearance, it’s every bit as important to me now as it was then.

With that in mind, we’ve collated our most beloved inspirational travel quotes to encourage readers to “explore, dream and discover” for themselves.

The 100 Best Inspirational Travel Quotes to Spark Your Next Adventure

Inspirational Travel Quotes

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links. All hosted affiliate links follow our editorial policies .

I was a voracious reader when I was growing up, typically reading two books a week on average.

My lower-middle class family didn’t have the money to do much in the way of traveling, outside of the occasional camping trip in North Georgia . Both my parents worked, and my dad worked multiple jobs to support his family of five.

The furthest we ever traveled was a trip to visit my godparents in Virginia when I was 14. So instead I read books about travel and adventure long before I had the financial means to start taking adventures of my own.

It was the written word that originally fueled my travel dreams, from Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island  and Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Books  to Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea .

It was through Henry David Thoreau’s Walden , John Muir’s Our National Parks ,  and Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Nature  that I developed a passion for the environment. Without them, who knows if I would’ve become the advocate for ecotourism and wildlife conservation I am today. 

And when I finally started traveling, the work of travel writers such as Jon Krakauer , Bill Bryson and Paul Theroux greatly influenced the way I did it.

But the first classic quote I remember having a significant impact on me came in the form of a Robert Frost poem: “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by. And that has made all the difference.” This idea influenced many of my choices, setting me on the path to becoming a full-time professional writer in my twenties.

For me, these inspirational travel quotes aren’t just words: They are the distillation of a philosophy that continues to drive my life and work today. I hope they will prove equally influential for you…   –Bret Love; photos by Bret Love & Mary Gabbett

Travel Quotes

Hans Christian Anderson travel quote "To move, to breathe, to fly, to float, to gain all while you give, to roam the roads of lands remote, to travel is to live"

Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living. Miriam Beard

Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember and remember more than I have seen. Benjamin Disraeli

The only impossible journey is the one you never begin. Tony Robbins

Hilaire Belloc travel quote "We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment"

Travel: the best way to be lost and found at the same time. Brenna Smith
Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s OK. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind. Anthony Bourdain
The journey not the arrival matters. T.S. Eliot

William Least Heat Moon Quote “What you’ve done becomes the judge of what you’re going to do - especially in other people’s minds. When you’re traveling, you are what you are right there and then”

Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world. Gustave Flaubert

Why We Travel

We know that the urge to travel, explore, and see new things is not a new one for humankind, but what encourages us to pack our bags and leave home?

Whether you go by car, on foot, by rail, or air, these travel quotes are all about the forces that drive us to go new places and seek new experiences.

Robert Louis Stevenson Quote "I travel not to go anywhere but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move"

Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore. Andre Gide
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. Marcel Proust
The journey itself is my home . Matsuo Basho
I would rather own a little and see the world than own the world and see a little of it. Alexander Sattler
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in you sail. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain

Augustine Travel Quote “The world is a book, and those who don’t travel only read one page”

There’s something about arriving in new cities, wandering empty streets with no destination. I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I’m born to leave. Charlotte Erikkson
To get away from one’s working environment is, in a sense, to get away from one’s self; and this is often the chief advantage of travel and change. Charles Horton Cooley

A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it. John Steinbeck

George A Moore Quote “A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it”

Focus on the journey, not the destination, joy is found not in finishing the activity, but in doing. Greg Anderson
Once you have travelled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey. Pat Conroy
We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way, begin no day where we have ended another day; and no sunrise finds us where sunset left us. Even while the earth sleeps we travel. We are the seeds of the tenacious plant, and it is in our ripeness and our fullness of heart that we are given to the wind and are scattered. Kahlil Gibran
Now more than ever do I realize that I will never be content with a sedentary life, that I will always be haunted by thoughts of a sun-drenched elsewhere. Isabelle Eberhardt

Mary Ann Radmacher Travel Quote"I am not the same having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world"

The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. Christopher McCandless
I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list. Susan Sontag
The impulse to travel is one of the hopeful symptoms of life. Agnes Repplier
Sometimes one day in a different place gives you more than ten years of life at home. Anatole France

Carew Papritz Quote "I travel because it makes me realize how much I haven't seen, how much I'm not going to see, and how much I still need to see"

Do we really want to travel in hermetically sealed pope-mobiles through the rural provinces of France, Mexico and the Far East, eating only in Hard Rock Cafes and McDonalds? Or do we want to eat without fear, tearing into the local stew, the humble taqueria’s mystery meat, the sincerely offered gift of a lightly grilled fish head? I know what I want. I want it all. I want to try everything once. Anthony Bourdain
And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful , receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end. Pico Iyer

Solo Journey Quotes

Traveling alone is one of the scariest and most rewarding things you can do. Going where you want, when you want, without having to account for someone else… it sounds perfect, doesn’t it? Well, yes and no.

Taking a solo trip is liberating and reminds us how responsible and accountable we can be for our actions. We get to enjoy the journey, as well as the amazement of going somewhere we’ve never been before, with no distractions or drama.

Although traveling alone can be a little lonely, it’s also a great way to build confidence . It’s worth remembering that a solo trip might also introduce us to new friends, family we didn’t know we had, or even a significant other.

Suzy Strutner Quote "Solo travel not only pushes you out of your comfort zone, it also pushes you out of the zone of others' expectations"

Traveling solo does not always mean you’re alone. Most often, you meet marvelous people along the way and make connections that last a lifetime. Jacqueline Boone
Some journeys can be only traveled alone. Ken Poirot
Don’t be scared to walk alone. Don’t be scared to like it. John Mayer
Travel far enough, you meet yourself. David Mitchell
A person susceptible to wanderlust is not so much committed to movement as committed to transformation. Pico Iyer
Traveling allows you to become so many different versions of yourself. Anonymous
The inner journey of travel is intensified by solitude . Paul Theroux
When preparing to travel, let out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money. Susan Heller

Thoreau Quote "The man who goes alone can start today; but he who travels with another must wait until that other is ready"

Half of the fun of travel is the aesthetic of lostness. Ray Bradbury
I love the feeling of being anonymous in a city I’ve never been to before. Anonymous
A person needs at intervals to separate himself from family and companions and go to new places. He must go without familiars in order to be open to new influences, to change . Katharine Butler Hathaway
To awaken alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world. You are surrounded by adventure. You have no idea of what is in store for you, but you will, if you are wise and know the art of travel, let yourself go on the stream of the unknown. Freya Stark
I am never happier than when I am alone in a foreign city; it is as if I had become invisible. Margaret Storm Jameson
Traveling alone will be the scariest, most liberating thing of your life, try it at least once. Anonymous

David McCullough Jr Quote "Climb the mountain so you can see the world, not so the world can see you"

Loving life is easy when you are abroad. Where no one knows you and you hold your life in your hands all alone, you are more master of yourself than at any other time. Hannah Arendt
Some roads aren’t meant to be travelled alone. Chinese Proverb
Never go on trips with anyone you do not love . Ernest Hemingway

Business Travel Quotes

Some of us travel more than others, and for some travel is more about obligation than enjoyment. For businesspeople who have to travel from place to place, it doesn’t seem like much of a privilege at all.

However much of an obligation traveling for work may seem, there are always ways to make it more enjoyable, fulfilling, and rewarding.

Matthew Karsten Quote "Investment in travel is an investment in yourself."

Travel is never a matter of money but of courage. Paulo Coelho
One thing I love about traveling for work is growing and learning out of my comfort zone. Anonymous
But my sense in speaking to people when I travel is that the film business is not that dissimilar from a lot of other businesses. Steven Soderbergh
I have found adventure in flying, in world travel, in business, and even close at hand… adventure is a state of mind and spirit. Jacqueline Cochran
I am in a very peculiar business: I travel all over the world telling people what they should already know. David Randi
Better to see something once, than to hear about it a thousand times. Asian Proverb
No one traveling on a business trip would be missed if he failed to arrive. Thorstein Veblen
If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success . John D. Rockefeller

Ann Landers Travel Quote "A husband is a man who wishes he had as much fun when he goes on business trips as his wife thinks he does"

Road Trip Quotes

Taking a road trip is a quintessential American dream for many, how many of us are brave enough to jump in the car, turn on the music, and drive for thousands of miles?

If this sounds like your idea of a perfect vacation, or something you’ve always wanted to do, make this the year that you plan it and do it!

Take the time to plan out a rough guideline for your adventure. Include must-see sights, places to stay, and experiences you just can’t live without. Making space for spontaneity is important, too, for some of the best times of our lives happen when we least expect them.

Lewis Carroll Quote "If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there"

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I – I took the one less traveled by. Robert Frost

If you’re on a road trip, you need driving music. Edgar Wright
Because the greatest part of a road trip isn’t arriving at your destination. It’s all the wild stuff that happens along the way. Emma Chase
Road trips are the equivalent of human wings. Ask me to go on one, anywhere. We’ll stop in every small town and learn the history and stories, feel the ground and capture the spirit. Then we’ll turn it into our own story that will live inside our history to carry with us, always. Because stories are more important than things. Victoria Erikson
Road trips required a couple of things: a well-balanced diet of caffeine, salt and sugar and an excellent selection of tunes—oh, and directions. Jenn McKinlay

"A road trip is a way for the whole family to spend time together and annoy each other in interesting new places"

What it takes to realize everything is fine around you? A road trip to the mountains where your soul dwells in the echoes of the winds that carry fragments of clouds with them. What it takes to realize world is going back to chaos and infinite hurry? End of the aforementioned road trip. Crestless Wave
A passenger on a road journey is in the hands of a driver; a reader embarking on a book is in the hands of a narrator. Romesh Gunesekera
Map out your future – but do it in pencil. The road ahead is as long as you make it. Make it worth the trip. Jon Bon Jovi

Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason. Jerry Seinfeld

"Now, on this road trip, my mind seemed to uncrinkle, to breathe, to present to itself a cure for a disease it had not, until now, known it had"

I love being on the road. I love that lifestyle, traveling city to city, rocking out and moving on to the next place. Caleb Johnson
You can be writing every day. When you go on a road trip, the trip itself becomes part of the story. Steve Rushin
The freedom of the open road is seductive, serendipitous and absolutely liberating. Aaron Lauritsen
That’s why I love road trips, dude. It’s like doing something without actually doing anything. John Green
Wherever you get to is better than where you started. To stay on the road is a massive achievement. Anthony Joshua

Walt Whitman quote "Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road"

All he needed was a wheel in his hand and four on the road. Jack Kerouac
If you come to a fork in the road, take it. Yogi Berra
I can speak to my soul only when the two of us are off exploring deserts or cities or mountains or roads. Paulo Coelho
Look for chances to take the less-traveled roads. There are no wrong turns. Susan Magsamen
When all’s said and done, all roads lead to the same end. So it’s not so much which road you take, as how you take it. Charles de Lint
The open road is a beckoning, a strangeness, a place where a man can lose himself. William Least Heat Moon
I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it. Rosalia de Castro
You know more of a road by having traveled it than by all the conjectures and descriptions in the world. William Hazlitt
The road must eventually lead to the whole world. Jack Kerouac

"The road is there, it will always be there. You just have to decide when to take it"

Wherever your next trip takes you, we hope you found a quote to inspire you on your journey! And if you’ve just returned home, now may be the perfect time to start planning your next adventure.

Travel has always been a transformative experience for those who dare to do it. Visiting different places, cultures, and lands can introduce us to parts of ourself we otherwise may never know.

100+ Fun Facts About Canada for Travelers

Paul Heller has been a lifelong avid traveler and language learner and teacher, Even as a child, he told Santa Claus that he wanted to visit all the children worldwide. At seven years old, Paul wanted to retire to Mexico. At eight, he memorized the name, capital, location, and some facts about every country worldwide. At twelve, he found a book "Lonely Planet: Southeast Asia on a Shoestring" and started developing his own itinerary for a future round-the-world trip. He remained obsessed with travel; after getting a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the University of Southern California and working as an administrator, He spent his vacations going to different countries around the globe studying language, touring, and volunteering. In 1994, he quit his job and lived in Russia as a volunteer English instructor. He discovered that he loved teaching languages. In 2004, he decided to make a living out of his travels and founded a community of people who love to travel just like him. He developed 5 three-hour classes about living and traveling long-term worldwide which he taught in over 50 adult education programs throughout the US. After his parents passed, he realized his dream of traveling around the world; cruising and touring some of the most remote places like the North Atlantic, Patagonia, and Oceania; and learning new languages (he knows Spanish, Italian, French, and Russian). Paul encourages everyone to learn foreign languages. He knows that it can be frustrating and slow but that anyone can learn a language if they put in the work and, most importantly, learning a language is well worth the time and effort because it opens up a whole new set of people, ideas, and cultures. He is currently spending the next chapter of his life in Mérida, México. He is excited about using this blog and his classes and workshops to inspire and equip fellow Fifty Plus Nomads with the language, cultural, and psychological skills necessary to be successful and happy long-term travelers and expats over 50.

Valedictorian Buries His Dad and Delivers Powerful Speech

When high school valedictorian Alem Hadzic, 18, walked across the stage in his cap and gown and a pair of muddy shoes, he was ready to bid farewell to his fellow graduates.

No one knew that just forty-five minutes earlier, he had said the most heartbreaking goodbye of his life.

Teenager Buries His Dad and Graduates High School On the Same Day.

High school graduate Alem Hadzic delivering his valedictory speech.

Carrolton Farmers Branch Independent School District

Alem's father, Miralem Hadzic, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January. Not wanting his classmates to treat him differently, the teen chose to keep it a secret for months.

Sadly, his father passed away on May 15, just one day before his high school graduation. Twenty-four hours after losing his dad, Alem helped carry him to his final resting place. And less than an hour later, he somehow managed to carry his grief across his high school stage.

While no one would have faulted Alem for skipping out on his grad ceremony, he knew he had to show up — not just for himself, but for his dad.

“I had to go to my dad’s funeral. I had to do it for him. But I also had to go to my graduation, and I also had to do that for him.” Alem Hadzic via WFAA

Alem’s dad was an immigrant from Bosnia. He came to the U.S. and got a job delivering Domino's pizzas to build a better life for his kids so that they could succeed.

It worked. Alem was about to graduate at the top of his class.

As he took the podium to deliver his valedictory speech, only his closest friends knew the truth.

"I didn’t know if I could give my speech," he told WFAA . "I knew I had to, but I didn’t know if I could."

High Schooler Pays Tribute To His Late Father in Powerful Speech

He began his speech with words of encouragement for his classmates, reflecting on their shared journey and classroom experiences. Smiling and laughing, he joked about English class junior year and pulling all-nighters.

But a few minutes into his speech, he decided to ditch the script and speak from his heart instead. “I have one more thing to say, I want to see if I can get through this,” Alem said before sharing his devastating news.

“My father died yesterday, May 15, 2024, and I attended his funeral today, right before graduation,” Alem told a shocked audience. “That’s why my shoes are muddy and my arms are shaking because I had to carry him into his grave and bury him.”

His words were met with gasps from the crowd (and more than a few tears).

“I can’t pretend that I want to be up here doing this speech right now, but I can’t throw away something that he worked so hard for me to achieve," he continued passionately.

"So I'm going to go to college and work every hour of every day to achieve all my goals. Because that's what he wanted and I'm going to do it for him."

He concluded his raw and powerful speech by urging his classmates to do the same for their loved ones. It earned him a standing ovation.

But more than the thunderous applause was the overwhelming feeling of support Alem received on a day he needed it the most. It was something he wasn't expecting.

“I never felt more alone that day,” he said. “I never felt more alone than right before I had to give that speech. And that all changed when I looked in the audience. I saw a room full of people people crying, I saw people being moved by what I was saying."

After the ceremony, Alem continued to feel the love. Strangers asked to take pictures with him and told him how strong he was.

"It made me feel so good on such a dark day. It was really what I needed.”

Alem will be attending the University of Texas in Austin in the fall. He plans on pursuing a chemical engineering degree.

The Power of a Father's Love

What Alem did takes tremendous courage, resilience and strength. However, it doesn't just speak to his character, it's also a testament to the man who raised him.

A father who did whatever it took to make sure that his child could realize his dreams.

Alem's graduation day wasn't just his day; it was his dad's day too. And while he couldn't be there physically, his legacy lives on in the enduring impact of his life and teachings.

Police Officer Is Now Family After Saving Three-Month-Old

Being a new parent is terrifying because you’re always expecting the worst. But when the worst actually happens, and your baby stops breathing, you hope that a stranger like this police officer will be there to save the day.

A Harrowing Incident

Officer Mike Harton sits with Tooka, he girl whose life he once saved

CBS News/YouTube

A normal day at the movies turned into a new mother ’s worst nightmare five years ago when her three-month-old daughter Tooka stopped breathing. Nikki Huckaby ran out of the theater and screamed for help.

“I was standing there, and that’s when she came running toward this way,” Officer Mike Harton recalled to CNN . “[The baby] curled back, trying to take a breath, and then she went completely limp on me.”

It was then that Harton’s training kicked in and he started performing chest compressions and back blows, trying to get Tooka breathing again.

“All I was thinking, is like, she cannot die in this movie theater,” Huckaby recalled.

“All I could think in my head was, 'Not on my watch, not on my watch,'” Harton added.

Saving a Life

After 30 long seconds, Tooka finally released a small cry. It was music to the mom and officer’s ears. “That cry was the best cry ever,” Harton said.

“I literally watched a miracle happen before my eyes,” Huckaby said.

From that moment on, Harton began calling Tooka “Little Angel” and the officer became a part of the family ’s life. He was even asked to be Tooka’s godfather. Today, he’s there for all of the five-year-old’s big life events: birthdays, holidays, and the first day of school. Tooka even wants to be a police officer when she grows up.

“That day, an angel came down,” Harton continued. “She did more for me than I did for her. My life changed that day. Our family got extended, and it’s amazing.”

Positive Relationships

In the interview, Huckaby explained that she and Harton wanted to share their story to show that positive police relationships can — and should — exist.

“A lot of people don’t get a chance to have that positive relationship with police officers. I hope this story is an example of how you can come together from different worlds and really be family because we are humans first,” Huckaby said.

It’s a nice reminder that the police in our communities do more than we think and are there to serve first and foremost. By highlighting more of these examples, we can deepen our relationships with police officers who show up for those in need, lend a helping hand, and continue to show up long after their official duties are done.

56 travel together quotes for friends and loved ones

By: Author Sylvia

Posted on Last updated: February 21, 2024

Are you looking for the best travel together quotes? You came to the right place.

I’m the sort of person who doesn’t like to travel alone.

Although I always hear from people who travel alone that it is super fun because you get to know a lot more new people, it is not for me. For me, nothing is more fun than traveling together.

Therefore we made an overview of the best quotes about traveling together.

But traveling together doesn’t always mean you should travel with your partner.  Traveling with friends or with your best friend can also be lots of fun.

That’s why besides travel together quotes we also include couple travel quotes, couple adventure quotes, travel partner quotes, travel companion quotes, quotes on traveling with friends, and travel buddy quotes.

Couple travel quotes 

We start off with a collection of the best couple travel-together quotes. You must admit, what is more, beautiful than to travel with your loved one.

1.  “It doesn’t matter where you are going, it’s who you have beside you.” –  Anonymous 

I partly agree with this quote. Whom you travel with is super important.  You could be in an epic destination and your company could ruin the complete experience. 

The opposite is true as well, an evening in a subpar guesthouse could turn into one of the most memorable experiences if you make some new friends.

We are fortunate to have already seen a lot of wonderful things like Antarctica, Japan , India , Alaska , etc.

Because of this, the destination has become somewhat more important for us.

Unfortunately, it seems that the more you travel, the harder it gets to get that wow-feeling. That’s why we now focus more on unique experiences instead of merely visiting places.

For example, I have been dreaming of a dog sledding trip in Lapland for years and spotting gorilla’s in Africa is also on my list.

Hopefully, we can scratch those items from our bucket list in the near future.

We will see what the future will bring.

2. “Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction.” – Antoine Desaint-Exupery

In a long-term relationship, I think it is extremely important to have the same opinion about the important issues and to have the noses in the same direction on these issues. That makes having a long-term relationship much easier.

And it helps if your ideas about traveling are the same. 

When we just met I had planned a trip around some African countries with a tent. 

I still remember how relieved Kris was that, when I came back after spending 3 weeks in a tent, I admitted that I would appreciate somewhat more comfort on our next trips. 😊

3. “Our goal is to run out of pages in our passports.”

Travel together quotes

I think this is a nice goal, but to be honest, we will have a lot of work to get our passport full.

Now that it is valid for 10 years, who know, we may succeed.

Have you already got your passport filled out?

4. “In Life, It’s Not Where You Go, It’s Who You Travel With.” –   Charles Schulz

I completely agree with this travel quote. Kris and I have already made many beautiful trips to eg Korea , Borneo , India and much more.

And despite the fact that these are beautiful destinations, it is always more special to share this together with Kris.

Read also: Where to go in Europe in winter. 

After all, we have always made the most special memories together and without his presence, those trips would be less special.

The following quote fits in nicely with this.

5. “I want to travel the world with you.”

I think, as someone who is addicted to traveling, that this is really a romantic quote.  This is one of the most romantic things someone can say to me.

6. “Let’s travel together and get lost in beautiful places.”

Couple travel quotes

We like nothing more than to wander through small streets and supposedly get lost. This is how we usually discover the nicest spots.

The best travel with friends quotes

7. “Never go on trips with anyone you do not love.” – Ernest Hemingway

Some people say that taking a vacation is the best way to get to know each other. And just as I agree with this quote, I think they are right.

When you’re going on a journey together, and certainly when you go to a somewhat adventurous destination, you can sometimes face surprises. 

Discover things about each other that you didn’t know yet and didn’t expect.  Some positives and some negatives.

With your loved ones you will manage to see through some of the annoyances but we’re sometimes reluctant to go on a trip with our friends because we’re afraid it would cause trouble in our friendship. 

Then again, your trips with your friends can also bring you closer together.

Vacations cost money and you should be sure that you get to enjoy them. 

That’s why I agree with this travel quote and I only take my loved ones and best friends with whom I’m sure I will have a good time.

8.   “I just want to hold your hand and wander the streets with you.”

Sometimes, even when we’re on a holiday, we tend to impose a schedule on ourselves.  It’s almost as if we are at work.  An hour to visit the first site, 20 minutes to rush to the next, a quick picture, and on to the next sight.

Yet it feels so good letting go of time and plans!

We both really enjoy just heading to a neighborhood and wandering around, holding hands, like a romantic couple just watching daily life.

9.  “ I would like to travel the world with you twice. Once, to see the world. Twice to see the way you see the world.”

travel buddy quotes

10. “I want to travel the world with you, go to every country, every city, take pictures and be happy.”

I think this is certainly a romantic idea for a bucket list. Although we have traveled already a lot an visited many amazing places such as the Azores , Lisbon , Rajasthan, and Kerala in India , Borneo , Korea , Japan and much more.

Unfortunately, there are far too many countries and places in the world and it is absolutely impossible to do them all in one lifetime.

So as it usually goes in life, we should make choices. I certainly want to discover the Azores , Hawaii, Iceland, Namibia, The Philippines and so on.

Which countries are still on your bucket list?

11. “Let’s find some beautiful place to get lost together.”

And there are so many beautiful places to discover. I do not know how it is for you but for every destination that we can scratch off our bucket list, we add at least 2 new destinations.

As much as I love the idea of spending some months in one location it would be really hard to choose.  We have seen so many beautiful places already…

12.  “Will you give me yourself? Will you come to travel with me? Shall we stick by each other as long as we live?” – Walt Whitman

Couple adventure quotes

This quote could definitely be used for me as a marriage proposal. I would certainly say yes if the right person asks me to marry him with these words. 

Marriage is a lifelong journey in itself, with ups and downs.  The journeys we did together only brought us closer together.

We have been married now for several years.  Kris didn’t ask me with these exact romantic words but I said yes anyway. 😍

13. “Here’s to all the places we went. And here’s to all the places we’ll go. And here’s to me, whispering again and again and again and again: I love you” – John Green.

This is the perfect quote to toast on with your loved one.

14. “Love is being with you anywhere.”

Certainly true for me.  I love nothing more than discovering new places with Kris.

15. “Go the distance, couples who travel together are more likely to stay together and feel more connected.” – Anonymous

Travel together quotes

This quote absolutely refers to us. By discovering new destinations and doing things together, our relationship remains fascinating. What about you?

16. “I would gladly live out of a suitcase if it meant I could see the world with you.”

I do not fully agree with this quote. No matter how much I love to travel, always living from my suitcase is nothing for me. I am always happy to go back home after a trip.

17. “I want to laugh often, feel love, have a lot of insanely dirty sex and travel the world with you.”

18.  “some souls just understand each other upon meeting” – n.r hart.

travel together quotes

With some people, it clicks from the first moment you meet them. I remember the first time I met Kris.

We met through common friends and it immediately clicked. We also immediately had a common topic.

The whole evening we only spoke about traveling. Meanwhile, we are more than 10 years further and travel is still something we can not stop talking about.

19. “A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.” –  John Steinbeck

This is true in a way.  We do prepare our trips quite extensively and always have a very good idea about what we’re going to do,  but we still need to change our plans sometimes. 

Unexpected things interfere with our plans, sometimes for the good. 

Because of some of the hiccups we have encountered we met interesting people we would not otherwise have met and we discovered beautiful places that we would not have known existed.

20. “Take that person and travel around the world. Buy a plane ticket for the two of you to travel all around the world and go to places that are hard to get to and hard to get out of. And when you come back… and if you’re still in love with that person… get married at the airport.”– Bill Murray

I think this is very good advice.

Only when you leave your comfort zone you can really experience who your partner is, how you both react to certain situations and whether you are suitable for each other.

21. “That is why best trips like best love affairs, never really end.” – Pico Iyer

Travel partner quotes

Your best trips don’t end with the flight back home.  Several years later we still reminisce great stories about our journeys together over dinner. 

When we’re out with friends we have good laughs about the funny things we encountered during our trips and when we look at the pictures we imagine ourselves being back there. 

The memories of your best travels will stay with you for a lifetime.

22. “Fifty years from now, when you’re looking back at your life, don’t you want to be able to say you had the guts to get in the car?” -Sam Witwicky

23. “home is not where you are from, it is where you belong. some of us travel the whole world to find it. others, find it in a person.” – beau taplin, adventure couple quotes .

Here’s a list of the best adventure quotes for couples we came across during our journeys. I’m a person who gets quickly bored.

I’m always looking for new things to do and new adventures to experience. 

And nothing is more fun than undertaking these adventures with your partner.

24. “Date someone who is a home and an adventure all at once.”

In my opinion, it keeps the relationship fascinating.

25. “Maybe it won’t work out. But maybe seeing if it does will be the best adventure ever.”

I think this quote applies to everyone who starts a relationship. It is always a bit of a step into the unknown and, unfortunately, often it doesn’t work out.

They say you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you meet your prince. And this is absolutely true.

Sometimes, however, it becomes the greatest adventure of your life. 

So if you are single and you get the chance to start a relationship, do not hesitate and go for it.

That first date may be the start of the most beautiful adventure of your life.

26. “As soon as I saw you I knew a grand adventure was about to happen.”- A.A. Milne

Couple adventure quotes

I can still vividly remember how on the evening we met, and again on our first date, we both talked passionately about all the destinations we had seen. 

It was so much fun to exchange those stories. 

We did of course talk about other things as well but those travel stories made us dream about all the adventures that we could still do together.

27. “Let’s go on an adventure. I’ll make some sandwiches and a flask of tea, we’ll get out walking boots on and get lost somewhere.”

We find nothing more fun than putting on our walking shoes during the weekend and going out to explore.

28. “I’ve fallen in love with adventures, so I begin to wonder if that’s why I’ve fallen for you.” – E.Grin

29.  “actually, the best gift you could have given her was a lifetime of adventures.” –  lewis carroll.

Travel together quotes

This quote definitely refers to me. You can not give me a better present than enough variety and adventure in life.

30.  “Why should a relationship mean settling down? Wait for someone who won’t let life escape you, who’ll challenge you and drive you towards your dreams. Someone spontaneous who you can get lost in the world with. A relationship, with the right person, is a release, not a restriction.” –  Beau Taplin

I certainly found someone like that with Kris. And you, have you already found someone who challenges you and drives you to your dreams?

31. “What we find in a soulmate is not something wild to tame, but something wild to run with.” – Robert Brauld

32. “you keep me safe, i’ll keep you wild.”.

Couple adventure quotes

33. “Oh darling, let’s be adventurers.”

This is a quote that absolutely suits me.

As a child, I always wanted to become an explorer.

And although we now like to travel in a comfortable way, there is nothing more fun than to undertake new adventures.

34. “We must take adventures in order to know where we truly belong.”

Everywhere we go we wonder how it would be to live there.  Sometimes we just try to imagine it by watching daily life. 

But in our opinion, the best way to find out is to engage in conversations with locals in pubs.  This is so much fun and we even created some new friends doing this. 

Sometimes our opinion about a particular city changes completely after we have spoken with the residents. 

And despite the fact that we’re annoyed by many things in our home country (the sky-high taxes just to name one thing), it is often only when we travel that we value certain aspects of our home country more.

35. “If happiness is the goal, and it should be, then adventure should be a top priority.” – Richard Branson

Couple adventure quote

I am, as I  said already, someone who gets bored very quickly. So I need variety and new things to make me happy. What about you?

Travel partner quotes 

I still have keen memories of some of the trips I took with my best friends back in college. 

Traveling is so much fun and being able to share it with your best friends makes it even better.

Years later we still feel connected by those fun and crazy adventures that we have experienced together.

So here we share the best travel partner quotes, travel with friends quotes and get-together quotes.

36. “Friends are as companions on a journey, who ought to aid each other to persevere in the road to a happier life.” —  Pythagoras

It is so important to have good friends who support you when you have a hard time but also share and celebrate your successes when you’re on a roll.

37. “In the end, what you do isn’t going to be nearly as interesting or important as who you do it with.” — John Green

I agree completely with this quote. 

I do need some time for myself from time to time, but when it comes to going out, it’s so much more fun when you’re in good company.

And that goes for many things.  It’s always much more fun to share the good things in life with somebody else whom you care about, and who cares about you.

That’s why it is so important to find a great travel companion with which it really clicks and with which you share the same interest.

38. “Surround yourself with people who make you hungry for life, touch your heart, and nourish your soul.”

It is so necessary to surround yourself with people who believe in you and who see a better version of yourself than you see. Only in this way can you grow.

Travel journey quotes

39. “When traveling with someone, take large doses of patience and tolerance with your morning coffee.” – Helen Hayes

A very wise quote. Even though you may be best friends, and you may share the same interests in daily life, it is possible that you have a completely different idea about a vacation.

You may be someone who is up early, excited about the new adventures that are coming and who is out and about all day long. 

Your travel partner may not get so excited about an active vacation and would rather relax by the pool.

This is an example with extreme opposites, a situation that is not likely to occur, but possibly over the course of your vacation, some small habits of your travel partner may start to annoy you.

Making some good arrangements in advance and showing the necessary understanding for each other will bring you a whole lot further.

40. “I have found out that there ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.” — Mark Twain

Unfortunately, I have heard this from others and even personally experienced it.

I will not go into details here, but that holiday together was almost the end of our friendship. 

So there is certainly truth in this quote from Mark Twain.

41. Everyone needs a friend who will call, and say, ‘Get dressed, we’re going on an adventure.” — Unknown

Travel buddy quotes

Sometimes spontaneous decisions result in the best experiences!

42.“Sometimes all you need is a great friend and thirst for adventure.”

When you have the feeling that life is boring and all days look-alike, a good friend and some sense of adventure can definitely change that. 

Let go of control and have your friend take you on an adventure.

43. “The most beautiful things in life are not things. They’re people and places, memories, and pictures. They’re feelings and moments, and smiles and laughter.” — Unknown

It’s sad to see that we are increasingly evolving towards a materialistic society. Brands want us to believe that we will be happier with a bigger house, a bigger car, and a more expensive watch. 

But the most beautiful things in life aren’t bought with money.

Enjoying a beautiful sunrise, and spending a pleasant evening with good friends. These are things that do not cost money but are priceless.

44. “Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you traveled.” – Mohammed

I’m not saying you should quit school early to do a world tour but I did learn a lot from my trips around the world.  

There are so many things that you can not learn from books. 

You only completely understand them once you have experienced them yourself. 

I do believe the world would be a better place if everybody traveled more and showed real interest in the places they were going.  Connecting with the people and being open-minded about their culture, beliefs and habits.

The best travel buddy quotes

Last but not least, below we share the best travel buddy quotes.

45. “A good friend listens to your adventures. A best friend makes them with you.” — Unknown

46. “life was meant to great adventure and close friends.”.

Adventure and good friends are very important to me.  I always feel good when I’m surrounded by my best friends. Adventures keep life exciting and when you can enjoy them with good friends they’re twice as fun.

The best travel proverbs

47. “There is a whole world out there. Pack your backpack, your best friend and go.”

travel together quotes

Although we have exchanged our backpack for a suitcase a long time ago, this is certainly a quote that still applies to us. There are still so many destinations on our bucket list and there is so much to discover.

So we regularly pack our suitcase and we are gone.

What’s your next destination?

48. “Life is about doing things that don’t suck with people who don’t suck.”

This is a straight-to-the-point quote. Maybe it can be better expressed but it is entirely right.

49. “We are all travelers in the wilderness of the world & the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

Friendships are so important. Everyone should have at least one sincere friend to share successes and failures with.

50. “Be careful whom you make memories with. Those things can last a lifetime.” – Ugo Eze

travel together quotes

Nothing is more beautiful than reminiscing about things that you have experienced together. 

Most often the person you have experienced it with is just as important as what you did. 

The real profound memories create a bond for life.

Looking back at those great moments that you enjoyed together with your friends, acquaintances and family members will not only give you a good feeling, it will also reinforce the bond you have with each other.

51. “Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter.” – Izaak Walton

I am fortunate that I can travel together with Kris and even though I hear from solo travelers how great it is to travel alone and how many cool and interesting people they meet.

Yet I would not want it any other way.

After all, nothing is more fun than to experience unforgettable things such as spotting a tiger or seeing a beautiful sunset together with your partner.

It is always more fun to be able to share experiences with someone else.  It makes the memory for me more beautiful.

But if you aren’t in good company I do think that good music and a good book will also help to kill time.

52. “I get a friend to travel with me… I need somebody to bring me back to who I am. It’s hard to be alone.” – Leonardo DiCaprio

53. “you and me, we are more than friends. we are like a small travel gang”.

Travel buddy quotes

I think this is such a nice travel buddy quote and I would love to be a member of such a travel gang with which I could regularly discover a new destination. I think it’s a lot of fun.

How about you?

54. “A journey is best measured in friends rather than miles.” – Tim Cahill

55. “travel only with thy equals or thy betters; if there are none, travel alone.” – the dhammapada.

I do agree with this quote when it concerns my daily life.  I believe that you become like the persons you spend the most time with.  So I like to spend time with people that are positive and at least equal or better than me.

But I don’t yet see myself traveling alone.  I met people who are really enthusiastic about it but it would be a big step for me. I have not tried it yet, so maybe I’ll change my mind once I’ve done it.

56. “Friends that travel together, stay together.”

travel buddy quotes

Or they argue so much during their holiday that the friendship is partly over after it. 😆 But I firmly believe that if the journey is a success this will strengthen the friendship that already existed. 

That is why it is so important to make good arrangements in advance, you don’t want to risk losing a friend over a vacation.

I really enjoyed writing this article.  It brought back many good memories, both to the journeys I did with Kris and the ones I did with my friends.

I’m sure you will be able to cheer up your travel buddy or travel partner with one of these quotes if he or she is in a bad spot. 

Or you could use them to surprise them and show how much you appreciate their friendship.

And don’t forget to keep your travel partner adventurous, because he or she will do the same for you.

I hope that you enjoyed reading these travel together quotes as much as I enjoyed writing them.

While there are many ways to research travel, the internet doesn’t replace experience. Traveling can be a hobby or mandatory for work, but regardless of why you are traveling, it’s imperative to know the best ways to do it.

Likewise, traveling can be as fun as it is stressful. If you’re a tourist in a new city or town, the travel experts out there will say you stick out like a sore thumb. 

Some tips travel experts picked up over the years could save you money and time.

<p><span>This is a trap that I’ve fallen into myself. I used Alternative Airlines because they offered some great payment options. However, they’re located in the U.K., so if you need to make changes, don’t expect a quick response. Another traveler says they used Priceline and booked a multi-city trip. They then had an issue with my ticket and had to re-book. It took two weeks to resolve the issue because they sat on the phone on the first day with Priceline for seven hours. </span></p>

1. Avoid Third-Party Booking Sites

This is a trap that I’ve fallen into myself. I used Alternative Airlines because they offered some great payment options.

However, they’re located in the U.K., so if you need to make any changes, don’t expect a quick response. Book directly with the airline you plan to use for the best customer service and guaranteed straight answers. 

<p><span>You can cancel your ticket for a full refund within 24 business hours of booking. If you booked on a Friday or Saturday, you’ve got until Monday to cancel. This grace period is airline-dependent, so you should check the booking policy of your carrier. </span></p><p><span>Sometimes, airlines automatically give you flight credits when obligated to provide a refund. It’s always worth reading the fine print and contacting customer service. </span></p>

2. Use Your 24-Hour Booking Grace Period

You can cancel your ticket for a full refund within 24 business hours of booking. If you booked on a Friday or Saturday, you’ve got until Monday to cancel. This grace period is airline-dependent, so you should check the booking policy of your carrier.

Sometimes, airlines automatically give you flight credits when obligated to provide a refund. It’s always worth reading the fine print and contacting customer service. 

<p><span>You may not have heard of this strange travel term. This type of ticket is called this because if you were to draw your stops on a map, it would look like an open jaw. It’s a multi-city ticket where you can stop at one or more destinations on your way to your final stop. For example, you’ll catch a flight from New York to Rome, but with an open-jaw ticket, you can also have a layover in Barcelona. Plus, you don’t have to fly back from Rome; you can choose a different city. </span></p>

3. Look for Open Jaw Tickets

You may not have heard of this strange travel term. This ticket gets its name because if you were to draw your stops on a map, it would look like an open jaw. It’s a multi-city ticket where you can stop at one or more destinations on your way to your final stop.

For example, you’ll catch a flight from New York to Rome, but with an open-jaw ticket, you can also have a layover in Barcelona. You also don’t have to fly back from Rome; you can choose a different city. 

<p><span>You can take advantage of the concierge if you’re staying in mid-range to luxury accommodation. A concierge will know the city and often be able to provide excellent advice on where to go and what to see. You can contact them before booking so they know what you are looking for.</span></p>

4. Book Hotels With a Concierge

You can use the concierge if you’re staying in mid-range and luxury accommodations. A concierge will know the city and often be able to provide excellent advice on where to go and what to see.

You can contact them before booking so they know what you are looking for.

<p><span>This is airline dependent, but some carriers have a policy that if there is no available connection of less than eight hours, the transit time in the airport and the layover is up to 24 hours. Airlines offering this include Air China, China Southern Airways, Emirates Airlines, Etihad Airways, Ethiopian Airlines, Gulf Air, Qatar Airways, Royal Air Maroc, Royal Jordanian, Sri Lankan Airlines, Turkish Airlines, and XiamenAir. </span></p>

5. Get Complimentary Accommodations at Connecting Airports

This is airline-dependent, but some carriers have a policy that if there is no available connection for less than eight hours, the transit time in the airport and the layover are up to 24 hours.

Airlines offering this include Air China, China Southern Airways, Emirates Airlines, Etihad Airways, Ethiopian Airlines, Gulf Air, Qatar Airways, Royal Air Maroc, Royal Jordanian, Sri Lankan Airlines, Turkish Airlines, and XiamenAir. 

<p><span>The great thing about Europe is that you can easily drive from one country to another because, in many cases, there’s no ocean to cross. When renting a car, ensure all the countries you plan to visit are covered in the rental agreement. </span></p><p><span>Before renting, you should also consider any fees associated with driving from country to country. While some highways do not have tolls, others, such as in Switzerland, require a sticker on your windshield. You might get a surprise fine if you don’t have one, but don’t worry; they are easy to purchase. </span></p>

6. Avoid Traffic Fines and Insurance Issues When Renting a Car

The great thing about Europe is that you can easily drive from one country to another because, in many cases, there’s no ocean to cross. When renting a car, ensure all the countries you plan to visit are covered in the rental agreement.

Before renting, you should also consider any fees associated with driving from country to country. While some highways do not have tolls, others, such as in Switzerland, require a sticker on your windshield. You might get a surprise fine if you don’t have one, but don’t worry; they are easy to purchase. 

<p><span>Many hotels have a cancellation policy, especially if you need to cancel at short notice. Forum members pointed out that, in most cases, rescheduling is complimentary, so if you reschedule your booking to a later date and then cancel 24 hours later, you’ll avoid the cancellation fee. </span></p>

7. Avoid Hotel Cancelation Fees

Most hotels have a cancelation policy, especially if you need to cancel at short notice.

In most cases, rescheduling is complimentary, so if you reschedule your booking to a later date and then cancel 24 hours later, you’ll avoid the cancellation fee. 

<p><span>Several forum members say they saved much money using </span><em><span>Costco Travel </span></em><span>to rent cars at their chosen destinations. One person said they saved over $500 on <a href="https://wealthofgeeks.com/get-a-cheap-rental-car/" rel="noopener">car rentals</a> in Hawaii compared to one of the big-name rental agencies. </span></p>

8. Car Rental Through Costco

Costco doesn’t just have great prices on food. Many seasoned travelers use Costco Travel to rent cars at their chosen destinations.

You can save hundreds of dollars using Costco instead of big-name rental car agencies. 

<p><span>One forum member advises that instead of paying for memberships at all-inclusive resorts, you can book through a family member or friend’s membership. You can find a Facebook group for the resort you are interested in and search for ‘booking through a member.’ The legality of this can be tricky, so make sure you’re reading all the fine print to avoid violating terms that could make you miss your vacation and get your benefactor booted from their membership. </span></p>

9. Member Perks at All Inclusive Resorts

Instead of paying for memberships at all-inclusive resorts, you can book through a family member or friend’s membership. You can also search for a Facebook group dedicated to the resort you are interested in and search for “booking through a member.”

The legality of this can be tricky, so make sure you’re reading all the fine print to avoid violating terms that could make you miss your vacation and get your benefactor booted from their membership. 

<p><span>This one is important! When making any reservation, your details match those on your <a href="https://wealthofgeeks.com/cheap-passport-photos-near-me/">passport</a>. It can save a lot of headaches when your documents are being checked by immigration and security. As one traveler relates, “My wife has a foreign passport with her maiden name on it. We mistakenly booked with my last name once, and chaos ensued.” Also, ensure that you have at least six months before your passport expires — it’s a requirement in some countries. </span></p><p><span>Source: </span><a class="editor-rtfLink" href="https://www.reddit.com/r/travel/comments/15lko0t/people_working_in_the_travel_industry_what_do/" rel="noopener"><span>Reddit</span></a><span>.</span></p>

10. Make Sure Your Details Match Your Passport

This one is important! When making any reservation, your details match those on your passport. It can save a lot of headaches when your documents are being checked by immigration and security.

Also, ensure that you have at least six months before your passport expires, as it’s a requirement in some countries. 

<p><span>Two women and a room full of pillows. We're sure only one thing comes to your conditioned mind – a pillow fight! Sorry to break it to you, but women seldom engage in them; in reality, it just does not happen. Sure, pillows are feathery and soft, but who wants to deal with the messy aftermath?</span></p>

11. Ask for the Pillow Menu

Yes, some hotels have a pillow menu you can call and select from.

This is helpful to make sure you get a good night’s sleep. So many people don’t realize it exists, but it does.

<p>Some airlines let you have extended stopovers (layovers) for free. This allows travelers to explore the city they are in before they continue on their trip. This is airline-specific, so research ahead of time.</p>

12. Check for Free or Extended Stopover Programs

Some airlines let you have extended stopovers (layovers) for free. This allows travelers to explore the city they are in before they continue on their trip.

However, this is airline-specific, so research ahead of time.

California testing car tracking as possible gas tax replacement

President biden aims to achieve 50% of all new vehicle sales being electric by 2030.

GasBuddy head of petroleum analysis Patrick de Haan shares his forecast for gas prices ahead of busy summer travel.

Gasoline prices to be steady throughout summer travel: De Haan

GasBuddy head of petroleum analysis Patrick de Haan shares his forecast for gas prices ahead of busy summer travel.

States are seeking out ways to recoup losses from lost gas tax revenue.

California, which relies on gas tax and other fuel tax revenues to support its roadway maintenance, is piloting the idea of a "road charge," which would charge drivers based on the number of miles they drive rather than how much gas they purchase. The pilot program was initiated due to the fact that the collection of gas tax revenue is estimated to decrease in the coming years, according to the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA). 

CalSTA officials told FOX Business that a bill, signed in 2021, established the pilot program to test the potential feasibility of alternative ways they can pay to maintain the state’s roads, which the agency said could even "show a net savings for some motorists under certain circumstances."

Participation in the program is completely optional, though participants can earn up to $400 in incentives for helping the agency test this system. Participants will experience paying different road charge rates, and in turn provide feedback to the state about their experience, according to the agency. To report their mileage, they will be able to choose between manual odometer entry, an onboard plug-in device with or without GPS, or in-vehicle telematics without GPS.

MERCEDES PUMPS THE BRAKES ON EV GOALS AFTER PROFITS DROP

The state has been exploring alternative revenue after the enactment of the state Senate Bill 1077 in 2014, which determined that it was "important for the state to begin to explore alternative revenue sources that may be implemented in lieu of the antiquated gas tax structure now in place," according to the California Department of Transportation, otherwise known as Caltrans.

With less reliance on gasoline and diesel vehicles, "California will be challenged to sustain its $2.5 trillion economy," Caltans wrote in a 2017 summary . 

Price Futures Group senior market analyst Phil Flynn told FOX Business that "one of the best-kept secrets of many Washington and local politicians is the importance of gasoline taxes on the federal and local economy," he said.

If that's taken away, states are going to find other ways to recoup the costs, said Flynn, who is also a FOX Business contributor. 

President Biden set his sights on achieving 50% of all new vehicle sales being electric by 2030 by, in part, lowering the cost of vehicles and increasing the EV charging infrastructure. Since Biden took office, electic vehicle sales have more than quadrupled, with more than 4 and a half million EVs on the road, the Biden administration said in January. 

But even now, as the percentage of electric cars isn't that high , states are "already feeling the pinch," Flynn said.

For instance, Flynn said California is obviously taking the biggest hit because it has the most registered vehicles. Even though it’s a small percentage, it’s really hurting California, and it’s part of the reason why the state saw "their budget surplus magically disappear," he said.

He argued that "when you have an administration that is working to replace the oil and gas industry in favor of an industry that needs handouts, you better find a way to replace the tax revenue that the oil and gas industry provide," he continued. 

He also pointed out how much the U.S. oil industry "stimulates the U.S. economy."

While Flynn is not particularly bothered by charging drivers per mile, he noted concerns about how it's being tested. 

He said that having a GPS tracking system on cars "raises some of the same concerns that we saw with privacy that we have had with special media companies and cellphone data."

However, the California State Transportation Agency told FOX Business that there are security protocols in place aimed at protecting personal identifying information: "Participants choose their preferred reporting method and no one is being tracked. The GPS data is anonymized, and personal information collected during the pilot will be destroyed 30 days after the pilot concludes."

That said, the administration is not proposing any action or changes at this point. If this is adopted, a road charge program would still require extensive public engagement and statutory authority, which is not currently being pursued.

Dramatic day in court as defense begins to present case in Trump trial

By CNN's Kara Scannell, Lauren Del Valle and Jeremy Herb in the courthouse

Key takeaways from Donald Trump's hush money trial as the prosecution rests its case

From CNN's Jeremy Herb, Lauren del Valle and Kara Scannell

Former US President Donald Trump and attorney Todd Blanche speak to the press before departing Manhattan criminal court in New York, on Monday, May 20.

The prosecution rested its case against Donald J. Trump on Monday in the  former president’s hush money trial , which is barreling toward a conclusion as soon as next week. Michael Cohen ’s testimony wrapped up after four days — and 17 hours — on the witness stand.

It wasn’t long after the defense began its case for things to get heated. Judge Juan Merchan admonished a witness for the defense, Robert Costello, after he audibly complained when the judge sustained objections to the questions he was being asked.

Here are the key takeaways :

  • Prosecution rests: Prosecutors from the Manhattan district attorney’s office rested their case after calling 20 witnesses over 15 days, including Cohen, Stormy Daniels, former Trump aide  Hope Hicks  and ex-publisher of the National Enquirer  David Pecker . Cohen was the key witness, accusing his former boss of directing him to pay Daniels’ attorney in October 2016 and approving the reimbursement plan at the heart of the criminal case. Prosecutors also introduced a host of evidence to try to corroborate his allegations.
  • Defense witness infuriates the judge: Trump’s attorneys called Costello as a way to try to rebut Cohen’s testimony about the pressure he was receiving in 2018 when the  FBI searched his home and office . Costello described his initial 2018 meeting with Cohen, in which he said Cohen told him, “I don’t have anything on Donald Trump.” But once on the stand, Costello quickly got on the wrong side of the judge, audibly protesting the sustained objections. “Ridiculous,” he could be heard saying while the attorneys approached the judge after one objection. He later let out an audible “jeez” following the judge’s ruling.
  • Trial endgame comes into focus: Trump’s side began its defense case Monday afternoon — and appears likely to rest on Tuesday. The defense first called a paralegal to introduce call records between Cohen and Costello, before Costello took the stand. He’s expected to be off the stand by mid-morning Tuesday, and Trump’s attorneys said that — as of now — they don’t plan to call any other witnesses after him. Merchan said he expects to have closings next Tuesday. Once the defense rests its case, he will hold a conference with the two parties to discuss the instructions the judge will give to the jury before deliberations.

"If you try to stare me down one more time, I will remove you from the stand," judge tells defense witness

From CNN's Michelle Watson

The transcripts from Day 19 of Donald Trump’s hush money criminal trial give a little more detail about what happened between Judge Juan Merchan and Michael Cohen's former legal adviser, Bob Costello, who was the defense's second witness on Monday. 

"Sir, your conduct is contemptuous right now," Merchan told Costello after the courtroom was cleared, according to the transcript. "I'm putting you on notice that your conduct is contemptuous," Merchan said. "If you try to stare me down one more time, I will remove you from the stand."

"I will strike his entire testimony; do you understand me?" Merchan then asked Trump defense attorney Emil Bove.

"Yes, Judge. I understand," Bove responded.

The transcript also notes that court officers had "great difficulty" clearing the courtroom, which is "made up primarily of the press."

Merchan acknowledged that and said, "I can appreciate that the press wants to be present for every part of these proceedings, therefore, this record is not sealed. The press will have access to this record." 

Here are the witnesses who have testified so far in the Trump hush money trial

From CNN staff

Donald Trump's longtime assistant, the former banker of Trump's attorney Michael Cohen and adult film actress Stormy Daniels are among witnesses who have taken the stand so far in the hush money trial.

As of Monday evening, here's everybody we've heard from so far:

  • David Pecker — the former CEO of American Media Inc., the National Enquirer's parent company — was the first witness called to testify. After more than 10 hours of testimony across four days, he offered illuminating details into how the infamous tabloid operated and conducted so-called “catch and kill” operations.
  • Rhona Graff , Trump's longtime assistant at the Trump Organization, was called to testify briefly on April 26.
  • Gary Farro , the former banker of Cohen, walked the jury through Cohen’s bank activity around the payment to Daniels.
  • Dr. Robert Browning , the executive director of C-SPAN archives, was called so prosecutors could use his testimony to get records into evidence.
  • Phillip Thompson, a director at a court reporting company, testified about how depositions work.
  • Keith Davidson , the former lawyer for model and actress Karen McDougal as well as for Daniels, was on the stand for nearly six hours   over two days.
  • Douglas Daus works for the Manhattan District Attorney's High Technology Analysis Unit, and was assigned to analyze two iPhones that  belonged to Cohen  in the investigation related to Trump. They were obtained via a search warrant. Daus testified about the  "unusual" amount of contacts  and other things he found on Cohen's phone.
  • Hope Hicks , Trump's longtime former aide, testified for a little less than three hours about her role as Trump’s 2016 campaign press secretary, the aftermath of  the “Access Hollywood” tape release  and Cohen's payment to Daniels.
  • Jeffrey McConney , a former Trump Organization controller, testified about  how Cohen's payments were listed  in Trump's financial documents.
  • Deborah Tarasoff, the accounts payable supervisor in the accounting department at the Trump Organization, explained how checks were cut to Cohen  in 2017 and testified that  invoices over $10,000  had to be approved by Trump or one of his sons.
  • Sally Franklin , the senior vice president and executive managing editor for Penguin Random House publishing group, testified for  46 minutes . Prosecutors used her testimony to enter  excerpts from Trump’s books  into evidence. 
  • Stormy Daniels, who's at the center of the hush money case, was on the stand for six hours and 10 minutes over two days of testimony. Daniels walked the jury through details about her alleged sexual encounter with Trump in 2006 and the $130,000 hush money payment from Trump's ex-attorney Michael Cohen shortly  before the 2016 election . Trump attorney Susan Necheles hammered down on Daniels in cross-examination to establish some of the ways she gained publicity and money from her story going public.
  • Rebecca Manochio , a junior bookkeeper at the Trump Organization, testified for about 35 minutes. The prosecution used Manochio to submit invoices , documents and emails as evidence.
  • Tracey Menzies , the senior vice president of production and creative operations at Harper Collins, spoke about one of the books Donald Trump co-authored, “Think Big: Make It Happen in Business and Life,” by Trump and Bill Zanker and read excerpts from the book.
  • Madeleine Westerhout , a former personal assistant to Trump at the White House, detailed how the president preferred to work, his attention to detail and the reaction to the "Access Hollywood" tape.
  • Daniel Dixon , an AT&T lead compliance analyst. He was used to enter phone records into evidence.
  • Jennie Tomalin, Verizon senior analyst in executive relations, was also called to the stand to enter evidence into the records.
  • Georgia Longstreet, who testified on May 3 and May 10, gave evidence about social media posts and text messages.
  • Jaden Jarmel-Schneider , another paralegal from the Manhattan district attorney's office, testified about analyzing phone records entered into evidence on May 10.
  • Michael Cohen, former Trump attorney, is at the center of the hush money payment, and hence, was a key witness for the prosecution .
  • Daniel Sitko, a paralegal in Trump attorney Todd Blanche's law firm, was the defense's first witness and submitted a phone chart into evidence.
  • Robert Costello, an attorney connected with Michael Cohen was the second defense witness. Trump's attorneys have indicated he will be their final witness.

Robert Costello declines to comment about his behavior on the stand Monday  

From CNN's Paula Reid 

Former Michael Cohen adviser Robert Costello declined to comment about his behavior on the stand Monday.

Judge Juan Merchan had asked Costello not to talk about the case. 

Merchan cleared the courtroom about 14 minutes into Costello’s testimony over “proper decorum in my courtroom.” 

Costello could be overheard saying “ridiculous” while attorneys were at a sidebar and later let out a “jeez” over an objection. After another sustained objection, Costello made an audible sigh and rolled his eyes, side-glancing at the judge.

The hush money cases is only one of the 4 criminal indictments Trump faces

From CNN’s Devan Cole, Amy O'Kruk and Curt Merrill 

The hush money criminal case against former President Donald Trump is just one of  four criminal cases  he faces while juggling his presidential campaign.

The former president faces at least  88 charges  over the four criminal indictments in Georgia, New York, Washington, DC, and Florida. Trump has pleaded not guilty to every charge in these cases. 

Here's a recap of each case: 

  • Hush money:  Trump was first indicted in March 2023 by the Manhattan district attorney on state charges related to a hush-money payment to an adult film star in 2016. Prosecutors allege Trump was part of an illegal conspiracy to  undermine  the integrity of the 2016 election. Further, they allege he was part of an unlawful plan to suppress negative information, including the $130,000 payment. 
  • Classified documents:  Trump was indicted in June 2023 by a federal grand jury in Miami for taking classified national defense documents from the White House after he left office and resisting the government’s attempts to retrieve the materials. The National Archives said in early 2022 that at least 15 boxes of White House records were recovered from the estate, including  some that were classified . The charges were brought by special counsel Jack Smith. However,  Judge Aileen Cannon  has  indefinitely postponed the trial , citing significant issues around classified evidence that would need to be worked out before the federal criminal case goes to a jury.
  • Federal election interference:  Smith separately charged the former president last August with four crimes over his efforts to reverse the 2020 election results. The indictment alleges Trump and a co-conspirator "attempted to exploit the violence and chaos at the Capitol by calling lawmakers to convince them ... to delay the certification" of the election. That case is currently on hold  as the Supreme Court  weighs Trump’s claims of presidential immunity in the matter. The court held a hearing on the issue of immunity in late April. Every day the court doesn’t issue a decision will play into Trump’s strategy of delay, jeopardizing the likelihood that Smith can bring his case to trial before the November election. 
  • Fulton County:  State prosecutors in Georgia brought a similar election subversion case against Trump and others. An Atlanta-based grand jury on August 14, 2023, indicted Trump and 18 others on state charges stemming from their alleged efforts to overturn the former president’s 2020 electoral defeat. A trial date has not yet been set in that case, and the Georgia Court of Appeals will consider an effort by Trump and his co-defendants to disqualify District Attorney Fani Willis from the case.

Michael Cohen finishes testimony and defense calls first witnesses. Catch up on a dramatic day in court

From CNN's Elise Hammond

The prosecution rested its case in the hush money trial against Donald Trump on Monday.

The day started with Trump’s former lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, back on the stand as the defense finished its cross-examination and the prosecution worked to patch up doubts on redirect. Cohen  admitted to stealing  from the Trump Organization and was grilled about his financial interest in the trial.

The defense then called its first witness, Daniel Sitko, a paralegal for defense attorney Todd Blanche, to submit a phone chart into evidence. The calls in the chart were between Cohen and his former legal adviser, Bob Costello.

Costello was then called to the stand as the defense’s second witness.

Here’s a recap of what happened in court today:

Michael Cohen:

  • October call: Cohen maintained that he only spoke to Trump on the phone on an October 26 call about the hush money payment to Stormy Daniels . Cohen said he remembers it “because it was important to me.” Last week, Trump Attorney Todd Blanche confronted Cohen with text messages he sent to Keith Schiller two days before on October 24 – whom Cohen had said put Trump on the phone – which were unrelated to the Daniels payment.
  • On re-direct: Prosecutor Susan Hoffinger asked Cohen if it was possible that he spoke to Trump about the Daniels payment and brought up other topics in October 2016. Cohen confirmed it was possible.
  • Stealing from the Trump Organization: The payments at the center of the case concern the $420,000 Trump paid Cohen throughout 2017. Documents show some of that money was to reimburse Cohen for unrelated tech services to a company called Red Finch. Cohen testified Monday he only paid back Red Finch $20,000 and kept the rest for himself. “So, you stole from the Trump Organization,” Blanche said. Cohen answered, “Yes sir.”
  • On re-direct: He said he took part of the money intended for Red Finch because " it was almost like self-help ." Cohen confirmed that he did not have a retainer agreement and the $420,000 did not have anything to do with any legal work .
  • Other money-making opportunities: Cohen said he made $4 million in 2017 from six other consulting clients that he did “not specifically tell” Trump about. He said he was Trump’s personal attorney at that time. Cohen also said he made about $4.4 million from podcasts and books since 2020. He also testified that he has a “financial interest” in the outcome of the case but that he will talk about whether Trump is convicted or not.
  • After the Daniels payment: When the payment to Daniels became public, Cohen testified that he told multiple people and reporters that Trump knew nothing about it. Cohen has been testifying that Trump knew about the payment and that he kept his boss updated.
  • On re-direct: Cohen testified that a 2018 letter to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) and a 2018 public statement were misleading because they left out Trump personally. Cohen said Trump approved the substance of the false statements. He also told prosecutors that he would not have paid Daniels if Trump had not signed off.
  • Cohen and Costello: Blanche pressed Cohen on his relationship with Bob Costello, trying to argue that Cohen was working with him more than he was letting on. After Cohen was raided by the FBI , he testified Costello wanted him to speak to Rudy Giuliani. He had testified during the prosecution’s direct questioning that Costello offered him back-channel communication to Trump through Giuliani. On cross-examination, Blanche pointed out that it was Cohen who was asking Costello to go to Giuliani for information.

Bob Costello called for the defense:

  • Costello testified that Cohen told him “numerous times” that Trump did not know anything about the payment to Daniels. When Costello told Cohen that his legal issues would be resolved if he gave “truthful information” to prosecutors, Cohen told Costello that he didn’t “have anything on Donald Trump.”
  • About 14 minutes into defense attorney Emil Bove’s questioning of Costello, Judge Juan Merchan cleared the courtroom over “proper decorum.” Costello could be overheard making comments while attorneys were at a sidebar and over objections and glaring and rolling his eyes at the judge.
  • When questioning resumed, Costello said he gave Cohen legal advice during a 96-minute phone call after the raid. He denied putting pressure on Cohen to “do anything” and said he considered Cohen is client .
  • During the prosecution’s cross-examination, Costello pushed back on the notion that Costello was excited about potentially representing Cohen . Prosecutor Susan Hoffinger asked Costello if he thought Cohen was being a “drama queen” during their meeting. Costello testified that Cohen was “putting on quite a show.”

What happens next: The prosecution will continue its cross-examination of Costello on Tuesday. Hoffinger said she has up to 45 minutes left of questioning and then the defense will have the opportunity to conduct re-direct. Bove said the defense doesn’t expect to call any more witnesses , which suggests at this point Trump will not testify in his own defense. Merchan said he expects closing arguments will be next Tuesday.

Trump praises witness Bob Costello in remarks outside court room

From CNN's Aditi Sangal

Former President Donald Trump praised Bob Costello in his remarks after court wrapped for the day.

"You saw what happened to a highly respected lawyer today, Bob Costello. Wow. I've never seen anything like that," he said.

This raises the possibility of Trump running afoul of the gag order he is under by talking about a witness.

What happened: Bob Costello, the defense's witness, is a lawyer who advised Michael Cohen. During his testimony, Costello could be overheard making comments while attorneys were at a sidebar, and over objections, and glaring and rolling his eyes at Judge Juan Merchan. The judge cleared the courtroom mid-testimony to address “proper decorum”

Trump says judge can get "respect" back if he dismisses the case

Former President Donald Trump speaks outside of court on Monday, May 20.

Former President Donald Trump called the hush money criminal trial a "witch hunt" on Monday after court wrapped.

He also said he hoped that Judge Juan Merchan grants the motion to dismiss the trial. "This case should be dropped by the judge," he added, saying if Merchan did that, he could "gain the respect back."

Trump also highlighted commentary from some conservatives that questions and dismisses the merits of the case.

Introduction to InsureMyTrip 

InsureMyTrip is a travel insurance broker, which means it doesn't offer its own travel insurance. Instead, InsureMyTrip lets you compare policies from 25 of the industry's best travel insurance companies to select the best coverage for your needs. You can also buy, manage, and cancel your insurance policy through InsureMyTrip.

InsureMyTrip also has a customer service team called Anytime Advocates, which can help you file or facilitate a claim. Having an extra set of eyes on your claim may help you receive a response faster than if you were to take on your travel insurance claims office on your own.

Even if you prefer to purchase an insurance policy directly from your provider, InsureMyTrip is worth a visit solely for their customer reviews. You can read reviews by specific plan and whether a claim was filed. This is a great feature in a travel insurance marketplace, getting honest insight into how well a company works.

When you InsureMyTrip, you'll be able to see all the plans that apply to your travel details and personal information. You can opt to only see the following policy types: 

  • Comprehensive
  • International Medical
  • Medical Evacuation
  • Embassy Visa
  • Accidental Death

Once you obtain your list of quotes, you can opt to see limits and terms for specific coverages, such as trip cancellation, emergency medical, evacuation, and pre-existing condition coverage . You can also receive quotes on annual travel insurance policies, if you intend to go on more than one trip this year.

Here are some more terms that InsureMyTrip offers with its quotes.

Best Plans Guarantee

First, InsureMyTrip's Best Plans Guarantee ensures that only plans with multiple positive ratings and reviews are shown to its consumers. The company provides a forum to allow past customers to share their experiences with specific providers. The insurance providers get a grace period to collect enough reviews. After the grace period expires, the site's offerings are filtered based on the feedback received, with the highest-rated plans receiving the highest ratings.

In short, you're free to choose your travel insurance, but InsureMyTrip's site prioritizes the companies consistently performing well, making it easier to find travel insurance companies you'll love.

Price Guarantee

All travel insurance is regulated state by state. So as InsureMyTrip points out on its website, offering discounts on these products is illegal. With that in mind, the company promises to show you the lowest prices while remaining legally compliant, meaning you won't find a (legal) lower price anywhere else.

Money Back Guarantee

You can cancel your InsureMyTrip travel insurance plan during your review period and get your money back if you're unhappy. However, there are a few caveats to this one. First, the company clearly states that each cancellation and refund policy differs by the provider, and you'll likely be subject to those terms. In addition, some providers may charge an administrative fee, which is typically not eligible for a refund.

InsureMyTrip Travel Insurance Cost

The cost of travel insurance can vary widely depending on several factors, including the trip destination, trip duration, trip cost, the age of the travelers, the provider, the plan chosen, and any additional coverage options selected.

The average travel insurance plan costs 4-8% of your total trip cost. Like your flight tickets, hotels, etc., prices fluctuate depending on your location, time of year, and more. The best way to compare the average cost of travel insurance for your plans is by comparing quotes online.

Purchasing and Managing a Policy With InsureMyTrip

You can get a quote from InsureMyTrip's website by inputting the following information:

  • Destination
  • Travel Dates
  • Citizenship and Residence
  • Number of travelers and their ages
  • Trip details (taking a flight, cruise, renting a vacation home)

Once you're taken to the quotes page, you can compare policies and sort your search by price, popularity, and rating. 

How to File a Claim with InsureMyTrip

You'll need to work directly with your insurance provider if you have to file a claim. However, InsureMyTrip makes it easy to access the correct contact information and claims forms.

You can find your provider's information by navigating to the "File a Claim" page on InsureMyTrip.com . Then, select your insurance provider and policy from the drop-down menu. Typically, InsureMyTrip will provide each insurer's phone number, emergency contact line, and mailing address. When available, it also lists email addresses and URLs for claims forms.

If you encounter any issues with your provider's claims process, you can email InsureMyTrip's Anytime Advocates at [email protected].

InsureMyTrip Customer Service Experience and Usability

InsureMyTrip received an average rating of 4.3 stars out of five from Google Maps reviews of its headquarters in Rhode Island. Most of the negative reviews of InsureMyTrip talk about a claims issue with their providers, which InsureMyTrip doesn't directly control.

InsureMyTrip regularly responds to negative reviews, offering phone numbers and emails that customers can call for help with their policies. 

How InsureMyTrip Compares

Insuremytrip vs. squaremouth.

Squaremouth is one of the leading travel insurance aggregators, listing policies from 32 companies compared to InsureMyTrip's 25 companies. Squaremouth also lists options online for group travel insurance policies, which InsureMyTrip only quotes for when you call their customer service line.

Both InsureMyTrip and Squaremouth allow you to purchase, manage, and cancel a policy on their platforms. You'll have to file claims directly with your insurer, but both companies offer ways to facilitate customer claims. InsureMyTrip has an Anytime Advocates team, which can help customers with filing claims or facilitate an existing claim. Squaremouth has a Zero Complaint Guarantee, which promises that they'll act as a mediator if a customer feels that a claim was denied unfairly. 

InsureMyTrip vs. VisitorsCoverage

InsureMyTrip's offerings are more comprehensive than VisitorsCoverage's, which offers policies from 15 travel insurance companies.

VisitorsCoverage does a better job summarizing policy terms, offering eligibility details like max trip length and age limits, which InsureMyTrip lacks. It also offers more search filters, allowing travelers to select search options for students studying abroad, business travelers, and U.S. green card holders. That said, VisitorsCoverage does not field customer reviews.

Wait, that's my new car insurance quote? Here's how to save on auto insurance

travel over money quotes

Americans seem to be spending a little more on everything these days. And on auto insurance, they are spending a lot more.

The average car insurance premium jumped by more than 20% over the past year, according to Consumer Reports. The national average cost of full-coverage insurance hit $2,543 in 2024, a one-year increase of 26%, according to Bankrate.

Those are big bumps, considering that the overall annual inflation rate for April was 3.4% .

Fortunately, there are several easy ways – and some harder ones – to reduce your premium.

Here are nine tips from the experts.

Lower your auto insurance costs: Find the best car insurance of 2023

Shop around for the best car insurance value

Finding a new insurance company takes time, but the switch can dramatically lower your annual premium.

Should you drop coverage? What collision and comprehensive insurance cover.

Notwithstanding the endless barrage of TV car insurance ads, some insurers do tend to cut better deals. An analysis by Bankrate, the personal finance site, found a swing of more than $1,000 between the cheapest and most expensive annual full-coverage premium among the largest companies. Here are the averages:

USAA: $1,695

Geico: $1,741

Progressive: $1,988

State Farm: $2,364

Allstate: $2,971

Insurers use varying formulas to calculate premiums, typically factoring in your age, location, driving record and credit score, among other items.

“That’s why the single most important tip I give people is to compare car insurance quotes from multiple providers to see who offers you the best deal,” said David Straughan , automotive expert at the financial research site MarketWatch Guides. “The same provider that gave your neighbor the best rates may not be the one with the lowest prices for you.”

MarketWatch , Bankrate and others offer online tools for comparing quotes. 

Increase your deductible

This is a quick, easy and valuable fix, though it sounds scary: Increase your deductible, the amount of cash you pay before your insurance kicks in.

Many policies come with a $500 deductible. Doubling it to $1,000 can reduce an annual premium by 20% to 25% , according to Consumer Reports, the consumer nonprofit.

Raising a deductible makes sense, experts say, because most motorists rarely file an auto insurance claim.

“If you have a low deductible, it’s because you’re nervous you’re going to get in a crash, and it’s your fault, and you’re going to be stuck with a bill you have to pay,” said Benjamin Preston , Consumer Reports auto reporter.

By raising your deductible, he said, “really you’re just betting on yourself as a safe driver.”

Drop collision and comprehensive insurance coverage

Dump your collision coverage ? This sounds like another risky move. And it is, if you have a really valuable car.

Collision insurance covers damage to your car if you’re in a crash. Comprehensive covers non-collision damage.

Drivers should think about dropping both, experts say, for an older car of declining value.

One insurance industry rule of thumb says you should consider ending collision and comprehensive coverage if your annual premium is more than 10% of the value of the vehicle.

The reason: You could be paying more for the coverage than you’ll ever get from the insurance company if your car is damaged, “because the car’s not worth enough,” Preston said.

Take a defensive driving course

Some insurers will give you a discount if you take an approved safe-driving course.

In New York, for example, motorists can reap a 10% discount on auto insurance if they take a state-approved course, which costs about $25 and takes about five hours to complete, according to Consumer Reports. You can repeat the course every three years.

Look for car insurance discounts

Auto insurers typically offer a range of potential discounts . You may be able to lower your premium by:

-   Insuring multiple vehicles

-   Bundling multiple policies from the same insurer

-   Being a good student

-   Serving in the military

-   Driving fewer miles in a year

-   Owning a car with enhanced safety features

-   Being a safe driver

-   Being loyal to your insurance company

-   Paying your entire premium upfront

“Always ask your agent about the discounts available to you before signing up for a policy,” Straughan said.

Work on your credit score

Insurers often consider credit when setting insurance premiums. Drivers with weaker credit tend to pay higher premiums, although some states forbid insurers from using credit as a factor.

“The national average cost of full coverage car insurance for a driver with poor credit is $4,063 per year, whereas drivers with average credit only pay an average of $2,520 per year, and drivers with good credit pay an average of $2,314,” Shannon Martin , a Bankrate analyst and licensed insurance agent.

Good credit doesn’t happen overnight, but a rising score can yield lower premiums over time.

Be a better driver

Maintaining a clean driving record “is really the best way to keep the cost of your car insurance down,” Martin said.

That means avoiding mishaps that can send your premiums into the stratosphere. The costly ones include speeding tickets, accidents that are your fault, and drunken driving convictions.

“Drivers with a single DUI conviction pay an average of $4,408 per year for full coverage car insurance,” Martin said. “This is $2,094 more than the national average for drivers with a clean driving record.”

Buy a cheaper car

You probably noticed the hit to your pocketbook the last time you brought home a new car: The more valuable the car, the more you pay to insure it.

Insurance premiums tend to be lower on vehicles that are worth less because they cost less to replace.

On a high-value car, “the parts are going to cost more, the labor is going to cost more,” Preston said. “So, they factor that into the premium.”

If you’re shopping for a car, you should budget for both the purchase price and the insurance.

“Most dealerships have complete vehicle identification numbers online, and your agent can use them to provide you with accurate quotes,” Martin said. “Once you know which cars you can afford insurance-wise, you won’t be surprised at the insurance cost at the time of purchase.”

More: Car prices are cooling, but should you buy new or used? Here are pros and cons.

Review before you renew

Take a close look at your insurance policy every year, experts say. Make sure you aren’t paying for coverage you don’t need, or missing out on potential savings.

Life changes, such as marriage, moves and job shifts, can affect how much insurance you need, and how much you pay.

Changing careers can affect your premium, in ways you’d never guess.

“Insurance companies might view teachers as less of a risk, since they drive less in summer, and nurses usually pay more for insurance since they work long shifts and are more likely to have an accident,” Martin said.

“Annual mileage and daily commuting also impact your rates, so if you have started working from home or now only drive into the office three days a week instead of five, let your agent know.”

3. FWD Travel Insurance 

FWD travel insurance offers some of the cheapest travel insurance plans in Singapore, so this is a budget-friendly option which still offers you great value for every dollar. I like that coverage for emergency medical evacuation is unlimited for all tiers, and overseas medical expenses go up to a generous $1,000,000.

Here’s a quick run-through of the price and benefits offered by FWD travel insurance plans:

When you’re purchasing FWD travel insurance, the COVID-19 benefits are an add-on. The price of the COVID-19 add-on costs between $11 to $22  depending on the part of the world you’re travelling to. If you choose to add it on, it’ll give you comprehensive coverage of the following:

  • Trip disruption
  • Trip cancellation
  • Overseas hospital cash
  • Hospital cash while in Singapore
  • Medical expenses
  • Emergency medical evacuation and repatriation

The plan reimburses your travel-related expenses if you are diagnosed with COVID-19 no more than 30 days before your scheduled departure date, or if you have to change your itinerary because of a COVID-19 diagnosis while overseas. You also get to claim medical expenses and a hospital cash benefit if you get hospitalised overseas or for up to 14 days in Singapore upon your return.

On top of that, there’s also an automatic policy extension of up to 21 days should you be prevented from travel as per foreign government regulations due to:

  • You contracting COVID-19; or
  • You or your travel companion needing to be self-isolated due to being in close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19

4. Starr Travel Insurance

Starr’s travel insurance   Starr TraveLead Comprehensive is a leader in terms of how customisable their insurance is. When signing up, medical coverage (including COVID-19 coverage) is automatically included in all plans, but you can choose whether or not you want to add trip coverage (e.g. document loss, travel delay) and baggage coverage (e.g. baggage delay). Then, you can also easily add riders for Golf Protection, Cruise Vacation, Scuba Diving, and Snow Sports.

Starr TraveLead Comprehensive comes in 3 tiers: Gold , Silver and Bronze . While all are pretty comprehensive (as the name suggests), we advise you go for at least Silver . This affords you $500,000 overseas medical coverage, as well as $30,000 medical coverage for COVID-19 and $250 coverage for COVID-19 related trip curtailments and cancellations. You won’t get the COVID-19 trip curtailment/cancellation coverage in the Bronze plan, which only offers $15,000 for COVID-19 medical coverage. Better be safe and  go for Silver or Gold.

Here are the prices and coverage amounts for each tier. Prices are given with trip coverage included in the plan.

Note: Starr also has a travel insurance called Starr TraveLead Essential, which also comes in Bronze , Silver and Gold tiers. They look very attractive because of their low prices—for example, Starr TraveLead Essential Bronze costs just $20 for a 7-day trip to an ASEAN destination.

However, unless you’re on a really tight budget, I wouldn’t recommend these plans because of their more limited coverage. For example, while the Starr TraveLead Essential Bronze plan does cover you for $200,000 worth of overseas medical expenses (which is already the bare minimum), it doesn’t cover you at all for trip cancellation and loss/damage of baggage. Neither do the Silver or Gold tier plans.

5. MSIG Travel Insurance

MSIG travel insurance is categorised into 3 plans— Standard , Elite , and Premier . The cheapest, basic plan still offers pretty adequate coverage in medical emergencies and trip cancellations or delays.

Here’s a quick run-down of the plan’s key benefits:

One more unusual area of coverage that MSIG includes is emergency dental expenses. You get $5,000 to $15,000 in coverage, depending on the travel insurance tier you select.

MSIG’s Areas A and B refer, roughly speaking, to ASEAN and Asia respectively. Here’s a more comprehensive list of the countries in each category:

  • Area A : Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam
  • Area B : Australia, China (excluding Inner Mongolia and Tibet), Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Macau, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and including countries in Area A
  • Area C : Worldwide

MSIG Travel Insurance’s COVID-19 coverage is an automatic inclusion to its travel insurance plans and offers the following coverage:

  • Trip cancellation, postponement, shortening, disruption
  • Replacement of traveller
  • Overseas medical expenses
  • Emergency medical evacuation
  • Overseas quarantine daily cash allowance

This is quite a decent list of benefits, but do note that daily hospital cash allowance is missing from the list.

6. Singlife Travel Insurance

Singlife travel insurance comes in 3 tiers— Lite , Plus , and Prestige . The price you pay and the coverage you’ll get increase with each plan.

Here are Singlife travel insurance’s key prices and benefits:

On top of the coverage above, Singlife also covers you for chiropractor and/or Chinese physician treatment : $250 ($50 per visit) for Lite, $500 ($75 per visit) for Plus, and $1000 ($100 per visit) for Prestige.

As far as COVID-19 coverage goes, here’s a quick run-down:

  • Emergency medical evacuation, repatriation
  • Overseas quarantine allowance
  • Trip cancellation, postponement, interruption

While Singlife travel insurance’s coverage for non-COVID medical expenses, travel delay and trip cancellation is comprehensive, we have to dock some points for the lack of overseas hospital cash allowance and pretty low COVID-19 trip cancellation coverage.

Also, do note that the lowest tier, Lite, doesn’t come with certain coverage, such as trip cancellation or postponement for any reason and COVID-19 overseas quarantine allowance.

7. Etiqa Travel Insurance

Do you hate making travel insurance claims? I do. That’s why when a friend of mine told me that you don’t need to make any claim on Etiqa to receive compensation for your flight delay, I was very intrigued.

I’ve been fortunate—all my recent flights have left on time. But from what I’ve heard from friends who weren’t as lucky on their recent travels, it’s true that Etiqa has the most seamless claim process for flight delays . All you need to do is enter your flight details when purchasing your insurance. Etiqa will monitor your flight and know if your flight is delayed (to count as a delay, it needs to be pushed back at least 3 consecutive hours). If that happens, they’ll transfer money into your Etiqa TiqConnect eWallet—even if you don’t submit a claim! You can then encash that sum via PayNow.

On top of this travel delay claim benefit, Etiqa also provides flight check-in reminders and baggage belt collection details via SMS when you land. I experienced this myself when I bought Etiqa’s travel insurance for my trip to the UK this year. Now that’s what I call service.

Etiqa’s travel insurance is called Tiq Travel Insurance  and comes in 3 tiers: Tiq Entry , Tiq Savvy , and Tiq Luxury . Here are their costs and coverage components:

Tiq Entry is sufficient to give you essential coverage for travel disruptions. But if you’ve just a little more to spend, go for Tiq Savvy . This will more than double your coverage limit for overseas medical expenses from $200,000 to $500,000 for just an additional $5 a week—that’s less than $1 a day.

Comprehensive COVID-19 add-on, protecting you before, during and after your trip

Covers Cruise to Nowhere

Get paid upon a 3-hour flight delay, even without submitting a claim

Instant claims encashment via PayNow

24-hour worldwide emergency travel support

The only disadvantage to Tiq travel insurance is that COVID-19 coverage is not included in the base price and you’ll have to pay for their optional  COVID-19 Add-On to be covered. Some people might say this is an advantage—it gives you a greater degree of flexibility to decide if you want to have COVID-19 coverage or not, especially as COVID-19 becomes less and less prevalent. However, the fact remains that you need to pay extra for it compared to travel insurance plans where COVID-19 coverage is already included.

Here’s how much the COVID-19 Add-On will cost for a 7-day trip:

Costs are based on quotes generated on Etiqa at time of publishing.

To be covered for travel disruptions and medical expenses related to COVID-19, you’ll need to add the costs above to the base Tiq travel insurance prices.

8. Cheapest travel insurance in Singapore

When I buy travel insurance, I don’t really care whether the insurer has 900 years of experience or if the plan comes with extra coverage for Chanel bags. Just give me the cheapest travel insurance plan can  l iao !

If that sounds like you too, you’ll be glad to know we’ve done the legwork for you. After assessing the most popular travel insurers in Singapore, the honour of cheapest travel insurance in Singapore goes to… FWD travel insurance .

FWD Premium

Optional add on coverage available for pre-existing Medical Conditions for Single Trips plans (up to 30 days) with S$50,000 coverage for medical expenses incurred overseas and 50% co-payment for trip cancellation, postponement and more!

But as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. Will you regret being a cheapskate and lose out on important coverage if the only number you look at is the price?

In a way, yes. Because FWD travel insurance is only the cheapest option with 2 caveats.

Firstly, travel insurers have limited-time discounts all the time. This is no secret. It does, however, make it difficult to compare prices when an expensive plan is on 40% off but a cheaper one is on 10% off. That’s why for the table above, we compared base prices without discounts .

But when you take into account promotional prices, which plan is the cheapest? There’s no need to open a million tabs to compare every travel insurance plan out there. Just use our travel insurance comparison tool  with the “Lowest Price” filter on. You’re welcome!

The second caveat is this: FWD came out the cheapest when we looked at its price  without its COVID-19 add-on. If you’re looking for a travel insurance plan that includes coverage for disruptions due to COVID-19 (which you should!), the real winners are  Amex travel insurance and  Singlife travel insurance .

Singlife Travel Lite

Covers trip interruptions or cancellations due to COVID-19 and cover your medical treatment should you contract COVID-19 whilst overseas.

Covers rental vehicle excess up to S$500.

Payout of S$50** should your trip be affected by excessive rainfall.

At the end of the day, ask yourself what specific travel insurance coverage you want to have, and assess the travel insurance options to find one that suits your needs.

Need some help? Read our travel insurance guide to understand all you need to know about choosing the best travel insurance. Don’t forget to use our travel insurance comparison tool to seamlessly compare plans across different providers in Singapore. We also have a comparison tool for travel insurance in Hong Kong !

9. Does travel insurance cover COVID-19?

When the COVID-19 pandemic started, most insurers did not extend their coverage to COVID-19-related mishaps. (Read more here .) The pandemic was quickly considered a “known event”, which insurers usually do not offer compensation for. So, if your flight got cancelled because of COVID-19, you’d be out of luck trying to get your insurance claims approved.

Now that practically all travel restrictions are lifted, insurance companies are rushing for a slice of the pie. Since the virus looks like it’s here to stay, most insurers are offering coverage that includes specific benefits for COVID-19. Where COVID-19 benefits aren’t already included in the policy, insurers offer an optional COVID-19 rider you can pay for to add on to the existing regular coverage.

Read your policy documents carefully to see if COVID-19 is covered, and add it on if you need to.

10. How do I choose the best travel insurance with COVID-19 coverage?

COVID-19 coverage  can vary quite a bit from insurer to insurer . When you’re shopping for the best insurance policy,  there are 4 things you want to look out for when it comes to choosing the best travel insurance with COVID-19 coverage:

  • Medical expenses coverage

Do note that the plans still exclude travelling against a travel advisory put in place by the Singapore government or by the local authority at your trip destination. Meaning, if your destination country goes on red alert for COVID-19, visitors are highly likely to come into contact with the virus and your insurance is highly likely to reject any COVID-19 claims. So be sure to check announcements on both ends before you depart.

Another common exclusion is failing to take precautions against COVID-19. This is worded kinda vaguely in those lengthy insurance policies, but could include not following any COVID-19 regulations at your destination or on the plane. So make sure you wear your mask whenever it’s required (or even when it’s not, if you want to play extra safe) and don’t attend any illegal raves.

11. What do I do if I get COVID-19 during or after my travels?

First of all, when booking your trip, you should retain all receipts, tickets and itineraries in case your trip has to be cancelled or altered.

At the first sign of a COVID-19 infection or related travel disruption, you should call your insurer and ask for guidance. Many insurers maintain a 24-hour hotline for travel claims. Save that number before you depart Singapore so that you aren’t stuck somewhere without wi-fi or 4G to Google the hotline.

To make a claim , you will usually have to submit your insurer’s form with supporting documents by the deadline mentioned in your contract (usually 30 days). Don’t wait until you’re back in Singapore to check which documents you need.

If you catch COVID-19 while you’re in Singapore , you will likely have to submit the results of a PCR Swab Test or Antigen Rapid Test conducted at a clinic or hospital.

It gets a bit more complicated if you’re overseas . The insurer will likely require documentation from the hospital as well as a doctor’s letter stating that you are unfit to travel and/or recommending treatment.

If you need to be quarantined overseas , you should make sure you have a quarantine order from the government, otherwise you may not be able to claim for quarantine allowance. Remember to ask for this as not all countries automatically issue such documentation.
