The Basic Travel Couple journey began in 2015 at a local Buffalo, NY Establishment in the heart of the Elmwood Village. A few moments after first setting eyes on one another, a very fiery debate began over (what else) traveling and who was the better wedding date (Still to be determined…lol).

2 weeks later we embarked on our first trip and second date to Chicago for a friends wedding (Using Travel Points). While visiting the Beantown we quickly recognized that each of us shared a burning desire to explore the world with an emphasis on saving money through Basic Traveling. Since that moment; our love for travel has grown and we have been blessed to visit Key West, Costa Rica, Thailand, Jamaica, Iceland, Finland, Hawaii, Egypt, Greece and dozens of cities throughout the United States all through Basic Traveling.

When traveling, our passion goes far above a typical beach day, although those are certainly necessary! Our emphasis when planning a trip is on including the right amount of adventure and excitement with plenty of time to rest and relax. We spend weeks (sometimes months) narrowing down our travel plans and the activities we want to embark on. Since we both work full time, we typically have a limited time frame during each of these Basic Travel Trips and attempt to fit as much fun in as we can to maximize our experience.

We thoroughly enjoy helping our friends and family go on amazing trips and create long lasting memories for next to nothing using Basic Traveling. If you are someone that wants to Jump Out of a Plane in Hawaii, Sleep in a Glass Igloo in Finland, or go on a $4,782 4-night trip at an All-Inclusive resort in Jamaica for $280 then you are in the right place
