So this blog is for the most part centred around budget travel, to that end I have recently been attempting to source partnerships with companies who can help traveller like I, save money.

Now lets be clear, you use of the below links will net myself a nice little kickback, but hopefully that won’t stop you from enjoying the benefits of the discounts on offer.

I should also say that I am only including links to goods/services I have personally used or experienced.  To that end I guess you could say that they have my seal of approval, but obviously there is no guarantee you will have the exact same experience as I.  PLEASE read any terms and conditions carefully and understand that I cannot be held responsible for your experiences/service, and cannot help with refunds and service enquiries.

I’ve used Monzo while visiting Dubai.  Over just 4 days my Monzo saved my better half and I a tidy £73, when compared to what I would have spent using my regular credit card.  See the breakdown in this post – The cost of 4 days in Dubai

A queue jump is the offer I bring to you.  Normally you would have to wait in a queue of several thousand people (2-4 weeks) to before finally getting your Monzo card.  However, I have a queue jump link.  Just click below to get that VIP treatment and jump straight to the head of the queue.
