Work With Us

City Guides
Nice to meet you!


We’re James and Susan.

Thank you for your interest in working with us.

Since 2010, we’ve become one of the top budget travel planning resources on the internet. Our audience is comprised of a wide range of travelers but our biggest demographic is budget-minded travelers in their 20s and 30s. Our readers come to us for advice on where to visit, what to pack, what gear to buy, and how to plan a successful trip through Europe.

If you look at our site you’ll notice that we’re not Instagram models.

We don’t travel with 20 outfits (in fact, you’ll notice that we re-wear the same clothes a lot).

We don’t have the patience to take 97 perfectly curated photographs of our dinner. In fact, we don’t even travel with a big fancy camera.

We’re just an average couple that travels like an average couple. But we do make every effort to provide in-depth, well-researched, and practical advice that people can actually use to plan their trip to Europe. Our goal is to always put ourselves in the shoes of an average budget traveler who is looking to get the most value out of their trip — because, well, that’s what we’re looking for as well.

With that in mind, we are always interested in working with companies to promote travel-related products and services. We also love working with tourism boards so send us an email if you think we’d make a good partner.

So let’s chat! You can reach us at to discuss advertising opportunities.
