Ticking off the travel list with Bartercard

Have you ever wondered how you can travel without spending your hard earned cash on accommodation? Bartercard serves up the perfect solution for members; approximately 1,000 accommodation options in idyllic settings world-wide at no cash cost.

Multi-award winning hair, makeup and special effects artist Suzi Dent recently swapped sunshine and beaches for tea-tippling and cobbled streets, ticking off her bucket list with Bartercard in the UK. 
The internationally published Gold Coast artist travelled to England with a friend in May and used Bartercard to cover the cost of accommodation and other travel expenses to save thousands of dollars.  
They started in Salisbury, visited Stonehenge near Glastonbury, enlisted the prowess of a spiritual healer, saw the Roman ruins of Bath, next setting off to York and exploring the cobbled streets of the Shambles.  

She said the sunrise tour of Stonehenge was something she wanted to do for a long time.

“We were really lucky to get a spot because only a few visitors get to go inside at a time – most people only see the stones from a distance so walking in and around them was something really special.”  

Travel isn’t complete without the culinary experience of cuisine, and Suzi’s was filled with traditional delicacies and authentic fare served in old pubs and local inns (eating Yorkshire Pudding in York was another experience she ticked off).  

Suzi said she got in touch with Bartercard’s UK Travel office where a consultant arranged her accommodation on 100 per cent trade in Salisbury and York, as well as some local attractions which she also snapped up with Bartercard.  

“It was so easy, all done by email, and my travel consultant looked after everything,” she said.  She really took the time difference into consideration and recommended everything I should see while I was there. 

“We stayed three or four nights at a time in these hotels that came with beautiful breakfasts and dinners included, and all with big, comfortable rooms.”

Back home the Gold Coast’s modern high-rises and beach culture is a world away from the undulating laneways and thatched-roofed houses of England.  Suzi’s 31 years of experience in makeup, hair and special effects has seen her working with Australia’s entertainment elite, creating beautiful faces for weddings, and terrifying effects for special events like Fright Night.    

“We love Bartercard and we love to spend,” she said.  

“Whenever I need something, I always see if I can find it on Bartercard first.  I’ve saved so much money and stayed in some beautiful places all without the cash expense.
