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…

My transfer from Real Rewards to Aer Club Avios finally worked

I’m always trying to pick up as many frequent flyer points as possible. In countries like the US there are a shedload of credit cards you can sign up to that have very generous sign up bonuses. Unfortunately, there are very few of these options available in Ireland. I’ve started trying to earn as many Real Reward points as possible with the idea of transferring them over to Aer Club Avios points (and then potentially over to my BA Executive Club Avios). I have my Bank of Ireland Credit Card linked to my Real Reward Account and have recently linked…

Booking.com cashback offers

I wrote this post months ago when I was travelling but forgot to hit publish. Booking.com have been running a lot of cashback offers over the last few months some of which worked out as 50% discount. The promotion is quite easy, sign up for a booking.com account, add a debit or credit card, make a booking and after the stay the cashback amount will be credited to your selected debit/credit card. You do not need to pay the hotel using the same card – for all my stays I paid in cash. However, you do need to start the…
