Who is The Occasional Traveller?

Perks

As a travel blogger, I am pretty lucky in that I get the occasional freebie and discount which really helps me have some unique travel experiences and to travel + save more. I wanted a better way to help you do the same, which is why I’ve created this PERKS page to share with you some of the discounts and perks that I’ve experienced for myself.

Of course I’m rewarding my loyal readers by giving them exclusive perks, so do consider signing up for my mailing list as you’ll not only get awesome discounts, but you’ll get my post updates delivered directly to your mailbox. There will be some perks for everyone as well – click below to see the full list of what’s available!
