Why I Love Blogging
If you can believe it, I started Frequent Flyer University 3 1/2 years ago on Jan 1, 2012. FFU was driven by a New Years resolution to find something to do that I actually enjoyed because at the time I was at a job I hated. Long story short, the blog sort of took off and I left my real job to do it full time.
While the money was good, the real joy of the blog was getting random reader emails saying things like, “You helped my wife and I have the honeymoon of our dreams. Without FFU, this wouldn’t have been possible.”
Even just yesterday I got an email from a reader that made my day.
While I love to travel, I realized I get even more enjoyment out of helping other people travel so they can hopefully experience some of the amazing things that I have been lucky enough to see.
If you ask most people what they would do if they won the lottery or didn’t have to work, 99% of people would say that they would travel more…
So I decided I want to be in the business of inspiring people to travel more.
While I wish I could physically force people to quit their jobs and go travel more, I realized that isn’t exactly feasible. However from my own experiences, once people have made the commitment to go travel, I can certainly help them from there.
For example, my friend who traveled with me to Asia asked me what travel gear he should get for our big trip.
I told him exactly what he needed to bring, what backpack to buy, what travel accessories were must haves, etc.
In spite of all that, he still made the mistake of buying the wrong country specific power adapter instead of simply buying a universal adapter that most of us probably use.
After that episode, I realized that instead of me just telling people what gear is best, much like me recommending credit cards, it would be much easier to have a one stop shop where everyone could just buy the exact products I recommend instead of trying to find it online by themselves.
So I decided to create an online shop called TravelMore that does exactly that.
Some Of The Things You Can Buy On TravelMore
While most of you probably have your “travel staples” that you take with you on every trip, the main difference between TravelMore and say Amazon is that every single product we sell, we have also personally used and tested on the road.
Additionally, we only sell the absolute best item instead of confusing people with 10 different potential product options.
You’d be surprised but we also have a lot of items that even seasoned road warriors either don’t know about or have overlooked like…
Packing Cubes ($25) which I will say are one of the best travel inventions because they instantly organize your bag and let you “unpack” without unpacking.
Or a 4 Outlet Travel Power Strip ($15) (thanks Gary Leff) which is absolutely amazing because at airports & hotels there are never enough available outlets.
Or my favorite Refillable TSA 3oz Bottles ($20) that you can fill with alcohol and bring on the plane : )
We also have some random travel gifts like Airport T-Shirts
And a Carry On Old Fashioned Cocktail Kit which I’m pretty sure will be a top seller for obvious reasons…
The TravelMore Pre-Packed Bundle – $100
In addition to individual items, we have decided to make travelers lives easier and created a bundled package that basically has the 10 necessities for anyone starting out travelling.
If Oprah had a top ten travel products list, this would be it!
The bundle comes with the following 10 items, all of which I bring with me whenever I travel.
- Universal Travel Adapter – $15
- Set of Packing Cubes – $25
- Sleep Mask With Earplugs – $12
- Microfiber Travel Towel – $25
- Mini-First Aid Travel Kit – $10
- 2 TSA Approved Luggage Locks – $15
- Set of Reusable TSA 3oz Tubes – $20
- Collapsible Water Bottle – $15
- Travel Wallet – $15
- Daypack – $35
If you were to buy these items all separately on Amazon, it would cost you $189 but because we are bundling it, we are selling it for $100 flat.
365 Policy & Free Shipping (No Minimums)
One thing I hate about shopping online is return policies and paying for shipping.
So in building TravelMore, we opted to create a 365 policy & have free worldwide shipping both ways with no minimums.
You have 365 days for a full refund on any items you buy, even if they are used.
After 365 days, we offer a full 365 Year Warranty on all products we sell. So if something ever breaks in the future, just let us know and we will ship you a new one for free.
No questions asked. No strings attached.

I encourage anyone who visits TravelMore to please share any feedback with me.
I have pretty great relationships with my suppliers, so if there are any products you don’t see on the site or would like to recommend any new products to add, please do share them and I’ll try to get them.
