4 Digital Nomad Tips and Tricks (You Wish You Knew Sooner!)
If you haven’t noticed there’s not a lot of information online about being a digital nomad.
(Okay, who are we kidding, you totally noticed).
So, if you’re wondering “what are the most essential digital nomad tips?” I’ve got you covered!
Here’s 4 digital nomad tips and tricks that you wish you knew sooner. Ready to rock and roll?
1. Research your destinations
Before you set off on your travels, make sure that you research your destinations beforehand. You want to make sure that you’re going to be staying in a safe neighbourhood, especially if you’re travelling on your own.
If you’ve never been to a destination before, you can find itinerary on Pinterest to find recommended places to stay, eat and venture to.
2. Co-travel with other digital nomads
One of the biggest challenges that digital nomads face is loneliness and isolation. They want to travel the world to connect with like-minded people but they can feel lonely and disconnected, especially if they’re always on the move.
Communities like Coachsurfing and Nomadlist will help you to learn more about the digital nomad lifestyle and manage your expectations. Other nomads will be happy to answer your questions about a place your visiting or what type of jobs you can get online.
The Nomad Escape offer co-travel trips for digital nomads who want to travel with other aspiring and established digital nomads. We’re in charge of booking accommodation, activities and driving on the road, which is one of the perks of travelling with us.
But one of the biggest benefits of travelling with other digital nomads, which can lead to friendships and new business opportunities.

3. Make Sure You Have Wifi
To make sure you always have an internet connection on your travels, consider investing in a mobile hotspot device, so you can strengthen your mobile hotspot service and work from anywhere.
But, bear in mind that when you’re on the road in the middle of nowhere, you might not get the best internet connection. So, use this time to do other things that don’t require wi-fi, such as writing blog posts or planning your goals.
4. Have an Income Plan
Before you set off, make sure that you have a plan for generating income on your travels. Or, if you have savings, work out how much money you’ll need for your trip. To create a successful income plan, work out the cost of travelling to destinations, activities you’ll do, your living expenditures and how many clients you need before the trip to pay for the costs.
