Budget Travel Gurus & Creators of Tightwad Trips

  • Have visited over 50 countries
  • Always spend a lot on travel
  • Favorite TRIPS include: New Zealand, Japan, Slovenia and Croatia

We have been married for over 20 years and have always shared a passion for traveling the world. We love combing through different travel sites and finding good deals on flights, accomodations, transportation, tours and entertainment. Over the years, many of our co-workers and friends have commented or been amazed by our ability to travel to extravagant locales on a limited budget. They have repeatedly encouraged us to start a travel blog or travel site and share our tips and experience with others. Admittedly, given everything that’s going on in the world with COVID-19, we realize this is probably not the ideal time to start a travel site. But, seeing as we love traveling AND since we won’t be able to do so any time soon, we figured there was no time like the present to start cataloguing our travels. With that in mind, we really hope our site helps those of you who miss traveling or who have always longed to see or explore more of the world. So, whenever you’re ready to start planning that next trip, we’ll be here. ENJOY!

What is the purpose of Tightwad Trips?

We want to use this website to share our love of exploring the world and to show our readers that traveling is achieveable- even on a limited budget. That’s why we’re here to give you all the help you need.
