Accounts and Memberships

We also have some accounts and memberships that we use as full-time nomads. Some of the links below are affiliate links.

  • We pay for one global cell phone plan from Google Fi (and we still drag our old iPhones around and use them on wifi since they have no active cell plans anymore).
  • We use ProtonVPN for security on our phones and computers.
  • All of our postal mail is received through Traveling Mailbox.
  • For housesitting we use TrustedHousesitters.
  • For other housing options we use Airbnb homes or find rental homes through local sources. On occasion we also use properties booked with points or dollars, or Hilton Hotels booked with points from our Hilton Honors American Express.
  • As for credit cards we are only using various Chase cards at this point. All of our credit cards were selected based on their travel rewards programs and signup bonuses, and we use them strategically to accumulate additional travel rewards points.
