Book Description

The Non-Boring Travel Money Guide: Dollars, Rupiah and Sense

Want to travel the world ? but don't think you are rich enough? 
Here's an insider trick, you don't need to be rich to travel. I've traveled my entire life, and never been "rich" in any normal definition of the word. 

Why You Shouldn't Buy This Book

If you are fixed ideas about how you travel, if the thought of taking the road less-traveled (metaphorically and physically) horrifies you, then skip this book. 
If you want 99 bland and generic tips on how to save money while traveling, well you might as well just skip on by as well.
If you don?t have a sense of humor you're probably find this book annoying too. 
If you are still reading, you may be surprised to discover that: The Non-Boring Travel Money Book even has some useful information if you are interested in: 
  • how to set a realistic budget for your next trip, including the single most important factor that determines your trip?s cost (hint: it?s not the stars of the hotels or the length of the trip);
  • how to save money and actually achieve that target budget;
  • how to setup your financial life to manage your money on the road;
  • tips and tricks on how to travel for free! (Well not really, but to travel for no more than you?d spend staying at home, that is possible).

    4.0 out of 5 stars Another non-pretentious book by Lis October 25, 2012
    By Marjan
    Format:Kindle Edition
    This book is full of useful tidbits written in Lis' unique non-pretentious style. She writes knowledgeably without coming across as a "know it all".
    There are so many things in the book you usually don't even think about like taking more than one card or the fact that not all countries accept your atm card ( read the rest of the book for more interesting stuff). worth the read even if you dont do anything with the info :-)

    5.0 out of 5 stars Over Delivers! January 12, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I am a fan of the "Non Boring Travel Guides" series by this author since the first book, but I must say, this is so far the best one! It really over delivers when it comes to the information how to manage your travel money and covers everything, from the best way of saving up and budgeting to how to get the best exchange rates in the different parts of the world. I am myself an avid traveler with more than 25 years experience of having traveled, and sometimes lived, in around 30 countries, but even I learned a lot of new information here.

    Summary: If you plan to travel or even if you only dream to travel, buy this book! It will explain all you need to know in an easy to understand - and non-boring- way ;-)

    4.0 out of 5 stars Quick easy read February 2, 2013
    By Carla
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I am a frequent traveler who often travels on a shoestring budget. As I write this review I am flying on a plane practically free using my frequent flier miles. I have tried many of this author's ideas in the past but did pick up some new tips that I plan on using this trip.

    More About the Author

    Elisabeth has had a number of careers - only the latest of which is "writer", she has also been a geologist and a computer geek, but travel has always been Elisabeth's passion.

    Her first trip was a family cruise to the Canary Islands and Morocco, but she doesn't remember much, she was only four! The longest trip of her childhood was when her family emigrated from England to New Zealand, by sea, in the days when long-haul was six weeks on a boat, not 24 hours on a plane. Aged seven, she fell in love with travel on that trip, although, to this day she still gets sea-sick!

    Over the next 40-plus years Elisabeth has traveled to every continent except Antarctica, and that's on the list. She has traveled solo and with friends. She's traveled with a partner, stayed in accommodation that the fleas shunned, and luxury hotels. The invention of the Internet meant Elisabeth could finally be her own travel agent.

    These days Elisabeth works in a back bedroom, in New Zealand's capital city, Wellington, with easy access to the airport and the world. Elisabeth is a writer, developer and promoter of websites about various topics - but travel is still her passion - and that's why she developed her Non-Boring Travel Guides.
