I don't usually stay in luxury hotels, but when I do, I have a few tricks how to save money on luxury travel, what websites I use to find best deals and how I enjoy my stay to the fullest! You can see some footage from a few fancy resorts I've stayed at below: One&Only Hayman Island, Australia https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGK9FaEMCvY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RlxH1-iuD0 Safari Hotel Kenya https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBKwWaKWioI Masaai Hotel Tanzania https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eR7bUeSiqQk Giraffe Manor Kenya https://flipagram.com/f/xdWFM6lLwe White Sands of Zanzibar, Tanzania https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LFNcJ98rT8 _________________________________________________________________ PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO MY CHANNEL, SAY HI IN THE COMMENTS BELOW OR FIND ME ON OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS!

This is how to find luxury hotels or resorts at the cheapest price https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aqq0WUoCprw

I'm late to the party but I've recently discovered your videos because I'm planning a trip to Italy and in particular Positano and I've also seen your videos on Tulum. I feel like we share the same brain because I use many of these tricks myself and wish somebody would've told me when I was younger because I could've saved a lot of money! I recently had a conversation with a coworker about this very topic - he is a person who loves luxury - luxury hotels, vehicles, clothes, food etc. and he cannot understand how I love luxury hotels but not the others mentioned above. The example I gave him is that if I eat at a hole in the wall and it costs me $10 vs if I eat at a fancy restaurant that costs $100 - even if the more expensive meal is good is it 10x better than the $10 dollar meal? Not likely and in fact the $10 meal is not that good - oh well, I only spent $10. On the other hand if I stay at a place that's $100 dollars a night vs $700 - is that more expensive hotel 7 times better than the $100 a night hotel? In my experience, yes, and for all the reasons you mentioned - the comfort, the details, the architecture and I'd add the view. And I discovered this quite by accident because when we started travelling I was like you and thought that people who stayed in fancy hotels didn't experience the real country. Now I do a mix of both. I usually start out adventurous and end up at a luxury hotel but I do try to get deals and I'm not the type of person who thinks just because a hotel is expensive that I'm going to love it - a lot of people make that mistake too because I think there's a lot of 'old school' luxury hotels that get by on their name. Anyways, another tip I have is American Express sometimes has great deals if you have their credit card. I'm not actually American and I realize outside of the US it's not accepted that many places but I got one for the Aeroplan points and last year for a trip to Greece I used it for a hotel in Santorini that was regular $1200/night and I got it for $700. When we arrived my husband was in awe and asked how much I paid and I checked all the sites and it was now selling for about $800 a night. That's a great feeling knowing you paid half as much as everyone around you. And you bet your ass I avoided all the tourist crowds and parked my ass by the pool all day long for our last 5 days in Greece after the first 2.5 weeks exploring. We've also used hotwire quite a bit - we tend to use it for stopovers or for the first stay at the start of a trip when we're more forgiving and just happy to be on holidays. Also, I second your tip on going in the off season (weather permitting). We go to Tulum (our favourite) in the off season all the time. As far as I'm concerned you get better service and fewer crowds - a win win in my book.

That was wonderfully helpful! I did start with backpacking a few years ago but now we mostly do all-out luxury or absolute basics like a airbnb, but traveling with luxury’s doesn’t mean I am traveling any less! Rightly said. And trying out that www.hotwire.com soon! ❤️

Sooo helpful thank you angel!! Using hotwire to book my Santorini trip!

Awesome video! Thanks for making this. I would love to see a video on how exactly you reach out and get in contact with hotels to partner with. I guess maybe you get more responses from nice resorts, because they have better customer service. My boyfriend owns a sustainable (eco friendly) tourism/travel website and we target eco friendly hotels, resorts, and travel companies. However, we find it really hard to get in contact with these places. The resorts always have an e-mail to e-mail, but they almost never get back to you or they tell you to contact their marketing director who almost never gets back to you. His company is pretty legit now and he has had hotels reach out to him before, but it almost seems impossible to get in contact with hotels we actually try to contact for when we travel. Hope to hear your opinion on this! Thank you xx :)

I have one question about Hotwire (which is pretty cool actually): is there any possibility for you to also have breakfast included in the price? I mean, I haven’t seen anything to mark if I also want breakfast included :/ Thanks!! Keep up with the good work!!

You can stay in a five star hotel and still get to meet the locals. Like Shay Mitchell does that.

I want to retire in Tulum since I'm hearing now it's a Vegan Paradise! Thank you for such a delightful introduction!

Good idea. I'm starting a round the world trip in a few months. Maybe if I need some comfort after endless trekking I can try one night in a nice place.

A lot of 4 star hotels are every bit as nice as 5 star hotels but significantly cheaper. Do you ever stay in those?
Sarra KB (1 year ago)
great advice! 🖒

Hotels always work with you a few days ago I arrived at 11 am and check in was at 4 they got me in the room at 11:05 am
RC CGC (1 year ago)
Yeah I just don't like to stay in the resorts unless my intention is a resort stay vacation, when I travel I am all about the museums, shopping restaurants activities so no need for them

How do you get in touch with locals? Never really did it because the thought of walking up to them and walk up to them for a picture or video feels weird
Katelin Montgomery (1 year ago)
Hi Aggie! I love your channel and I find you very inspiring. I was wondering if you could go into more detail about how to travel on a restricted diet (I am severely allergic to gluten). Thanks!
Paleo Lifestyle (1 year ago)
Very helpful stuff! Thanks! Other thing to consider is renting a luxury apartment or villa with self-catering and a kitchen unit, rather than a hotel. They also tend to have their own washing machine. So much better!
Aggie Lal (1 year ago)
you're right~

Your accent is so lovely! I love how you draw attention to the travellers that think you're not really traveling properly unless you're backpacking etc. I totally agree with you when you say that that is not the case! I think staying somewhere nice is an experience in itself and should not undermine the 'authenticity' of your trip. It's your money and you should be able to spend it how you like. I've included this video in my weekly newsletter as I'd love my readers to watch and learn from it. Keep up the great videos!
Aggie Lal (1 year ago)
Awww thank you so so much for doing that! I really appreciate it ;-)
Dominika Rutkowska (1 year ago)
Ja mam taką sugestię, że skoro zrobiłaś filmik o luxury resorts, to zrób o tych super cheap okazjach! Jestem ciekawa jak znajdujesz takie noclegi u rodzin. Spałaś kiedykolwiek na couchsurfingu? Co powiesz o hostelach? itp. :))) buziaki :*

Klaudia Alberska (1 year ago)
I'm the same girl :) I do exactly the same thing, I did it in Bangkok, I went there for 4 days and 3 nights I was staying in a hostel I visited the city and then I went for one night in a 5* hotel :) Those are great tips for travellers :) and how do you book the fight tickets? Do you travel with business class or economy? :*
Aggie Lal (1 year ago)
Klaudia Alberska good idea for a video - I often get upgraded :) love love love xxx
Maresi Kachler (1 year ago)
Great tips, thank you! It's good to see more videos from you :) we once stayed at a camping site for a week and then spent 600€ in a Restaurant. It's all about balance right 😋
Aggie Lal (1 year ago)
+Schnatterlienchen Worldtraveler that's exactly how I feel! Balance of roughing it up and luxury is better than just medium hotels :-)
