Planning Service
Do you want to be a RTW traveler?

Are you heading out on a long-term trip and looking for some assistance in planning your itinerary, researching where to go, what to see, and how to save money while living your dream? Then our new concierge service is for you!

We know that planning a long-term trip is a lot of work. We have been on two ourselves in the last four years and even wrote a comprehensive book on the topic to help future travelers get out and enjoy the world.

During those trips we often wished we had someone to bounce ideas off of, get first hand advice from, and have instant recommendations that would help us have a better trip and save money while doing so. Since we did not have that option at the time of our own trips, and we have become experts at planning these massive adventures since founding this site, our concierge service was born!

What Can Living the Dream’s Concierge Service Do For You?

Our two main goals for founding this service are simple: to save you money and help you have a fantastic trip around the world.

How can we do that? Well, our service includes the following:

  • Speaking to us personally throughout the duration of your trip via emails and Skype calls.
  • Providing our flagship trip report to find ways to save money and visit destinations at their best.
  • Researching hotel options, prices, and reviews to provide a second opinion on where to stay.
  • Searching for plane tickets to find the best dates and alternative routes to save time, money, and visit new places.
  • Answer questions about visas, attractions, and destinations whenever you need it during your trip.
  • Provide emergency access 24/7 via our personal phone number (premium package only).
  • Destination specific questions will be sourced by our own experiences from 66 countries as well as from our social media community of over 33,000 travelers!
  • Copies of our planning resource, The Long-Term Traveler’s Guide.

In fact, we’re so confident that we can save you money and help plan an effective trip that if we cannot find savings worth more than the cost of your package in our trip report, you can get your money back and cancel- no questions asked!

Who else can promise that they can return your investment through cost savings or allow you to walk away with the planning report and zero hassle?

For the launch of our concierge service, we are offering three packages with different inclusions based on your need while traveling as well as our flagship pre-trip report as a standalone option. All packages will start based on a date of your choosing (which we recommend to be at least 1-week to 1-month prior to your departure) and all pre-trip correspondence included in your package is available to be used at your discretion.

Trip Report Only

Are you looking to receive only our flagship route report to find ways to save money during your travels without the need for correspondence on the road? You’re in luck! We are offering this feature as a stand-alone option for all travelers on itineraries of 3 months or longer and are including the same money back guarantee as in our packages!

In recent reports we have worked on we have provided:

  • $300-$1,600 in savings opportunities for a traveler who was planning a flexible, 6-month itinerary in South East Asia (report length 15 pages).
  • $4,150-$5,400 in savings opportunities for another traveler who had a very detailed plan for a 2-year trip around the world (report length 22 pages).

From researching visa costs, optimized flight prices, points redemption plans, accommodation options, budget constraints, to destination specific requests, our report truly has it all. Don’t believe us? Check out the table of contents from one of our recent reports!

This report also includes a digital copy of our first book, The Long-Term Traveler’s Guide, so you can research your itinerary prior to submitting your critique questionnaire as an added bonus!

Cost: $200.




Availability is Limited

In order to give everyone the best quality service, we are only offering 25 packages at this time. When they’re booked up we will only be able to offer trip reports until a slot becomes available or our availability allows us to offer more. So for less than the cost of 1-2 beers per day (depending on where you are), you can take advantage of one of these packages to have our personal assistance on your long-term trip.

As we said before, with our money back guarantee, if we cannot find ways to save you more money the the cost of your package in our trip report, you can get your money back no questions asked, cancel, and keep the report for free!

Testimonials

Want to hear what people are saying about our planning abilities and packages? Check out these testimonials!

First and foremost, Jeremy’s report helped me save hundreds of dollars by helping me to find a route home that would allow me to take advantage of stopovers using miles (specifically, he showed me that I could book Manila – Tokyo – Chicago – Puerto Vallarta for 57,000 miles). His evaluation of my proposed budget gave me confidence that what I had saved for the trip was feasible and reasonable based on what I wanted to spend my money on. The country-specific visa information, accommodation comparison and weather overviews are already guiding my planning and will be my go-to when I’m booking along the way! There’s nothing like this out there – his attention to detail based on my own personalized vision for my trip was immaculate. This is an invaluable resource for my six month trip to Asia and Mexico – it’s like a travel guide just for my trip.

Living the Dream’s trip report was so thorough and immensely helpful in my planning. It’s the perfect tool for anyone looking to embark on long term travel, from busy career breakers who don’t have time to get into the details to gap year 20-somethings that don’t know how to get started. The report was customized to my specific type of travel and I continue to reference it again and again. Kudos to Living the Dream for helping to make my long term travel dream a reality!

Jeremy is a planner. I know this because, as a fellow planner, I know how to recognize them! Before a trip, he’s all about research, budgeting, and trying to find the best deals possible, whether he’s heading to London or Easter Island. This is reflected on his blog, where he and Angie post really in-depth budget, attraction, and food posts for all sorts of destinations.
