What happens if the GoCar isn’t there?

Last year I sold my car and I didn’t buy a new one. This was the first time since I was 17 I didn’t own a car. At first I thought I would really miss not having the car but in reality it hasn’t been too much of an inconvenience. Sure, it was always handy to have a car to jump in and go but I think there has been only one time in the year where I was left properly inconvenienced by not having a car. Over the year I’ve saved thousands of euro, so overall I’m glad I…

Sponsored Posts and Affiliate Links

I started this blog about a year ago as I always like to hear first hand reviews of services before deciding whether to sign up. It’s nice to know how services work in reality and not just how they are supposed to work. Around a year later I’m still blogging away and am surprised with how many views this site gets. This blog was never designed to make me rich – and believe me its not! However, I am looking to add a few more affiliate links to my posts in order to pay for the running costs of the…

How much N26 saved me on my last trip

I recently came back from a trip where I used my N26 card exclusively. I used to be a Revolut fan but have since moved over to N26 and to be honest, I haven’t looked back. I still always pack my Revolut Card with me as backup but N26 is my main card now both at home in Ireland and when travelling. I thought it would be interesting to do the sums to see how much N26 ‘saved’ me during the trip. There are things to keep in mind. I pay for N26 Black which costs €5.90 per month. If I…

Free Layover Hotels with Turkish Airlines

I wrote a post a while back about Ethiopian Airlines offering free layover hotels at Addis Ababa and today I’ll be covering the process with Turkish Airlines. I’m surprised with the number of passengers who aren’t away that the airline they are flying offer transit hotels. Turkish fly twice daily from Dublin to Istanbul and connect on to over 290 destinations worldwide. I’m a big fan of Turkish Airlines and find them very good although they have implemented some small cutbacks in the last couple of months for example removing the pre-meal Turkish Delight. Although the fact I complain about removing…

Claiming for delayed baggage with N26 Black Insurance

If you follow this blog you’ll know I have a N26 Black account and I’m a big fan. N26 offers two personal accounts in Ireland – the standard account which is free or N26 Black account which costs €5.90 per month as well as a business account. The N26 Black account comes with included travel, mugging, extended warranty and mobile phone insurance. Also, the 1.7% fee for foreign ATM withdrawals is waived for Black customers. On my recent trip when I arrived at the destination airport there was no sign of my bag. It turns out it missed the connection…
