A few months ago, Chris Guillebeau released How to Become a Travel Ninja, a 39-page guide designed to help travellers save money.

In case you haven’t heard of Chris, here’s what you need to know: He’s on a mission to visit every country in the world in 5 years. He’s well on his way – over 100 countries have been ticked off the list – and flies over 40 times a year. In short, if you’re looking for an expert who can tell you how to travel more for less, Chris is your guy.

If you’re looking for an expert who can tell you how to travel more for less, Chris is your guy.

Travel Ninja is a welcome companion to The Unconventional Guide to Discount Airfare, Chris’ ebook about finding cheap (or free) airfare. There is a little overlap, but Travel Ninja has a wider scope and goes into more depth on a few topics. Here’s what it covers:

As with all of Chris’ ebooks, the design is impeccable and the writing is fluid and conversational. I read through it in one sitting, effortlessly, and came away with some solid advice and unique strategies for saving money on the road.

The ebook is available in two packages. Here’s what the Basic Package includes:

If you go for the Complete Package, you get all of those things as well as:

Whichever version you go for, you’ll get 6 months of free updates and a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Plus, if you quote TB at checkout, Chris will shave 10% off the price.

    Wow, this is amazing, I can’t wait to start following him! Sounds like something I would want to do…

    I never aspired to become a ninja. But surely, I am more than entertained watching ninjas wrestle each other.

  • #3Bankabletravel

    This is exactly what us travellers need! More of us publishing, but more than that just sharing our experiences. I love reading travel tips and putting them into action then later finding out that I got a better deal than other travellers! All thx to the read!

    On my way to becoming a travel ninja!

    I think the only real way to become a travel ninja is to find a job that pays you well, and for any business endeavors they may have.

  • #5Online Tourist

    I’ve heard about this book from a friend, who is a travel ninja of sorts. I’ll be featuring it in my blog as one useful travel resource. Thanks.

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

    • Home and Away

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

      In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
