Why Online Courses?

Most travel resources take the forms of guidebooks, blog posts, and agency services. While these are helpful, they don’t typically teach you HOW to create your travel experience. DIY Travel Academy online courses offer an  educational advantage for travelers who are ready to learn everything they need to save time and get the most for their travel budget. Get ready to take your international trips to the next level!

Online courses also make it easier to learn about travel tools like booking software, budgeting sheets, and other resources. Instead of a written post that tells you how to use these tools, our course videos actually show you how to use them, and offer thorough, step-by-step walk-throughs.

Course Library Overview

These online courses are designed to teach independent and DIY-travelers like you the tools and skills needed to see the world your way! The online classroom offers a convenient and flexible learning environment, while videos make the curriculum engaging and personal. There’s a lot of information to absorb, so the courses are designed for you to go at your own pace.

Online Course Investment and Pricing

My travel experiences are a direct result of how much I’ve invested in educating myself as a traveler. I believe that, with the right knowledge and tools, these types of experiences are available to anyone! I’ve spent a lot of time and money learning (sometimes the hard way) what’s worth the time, and what’s not–so you don’t have to. 

Investing your time and money in these travel courses will ultimately help you save both, expanding your travel budget in new ways.  Once you have more time, money, and knowledge you’ll be able to create your ultimate itinerary and have the epic experience you’ve always dreamed about!

I understand that every traveler is unique, and everyone has a different budget. This is why I offer free resources like the Free Mini Courses, Downloadables, and Blog Posts. For travelers who are ready to invest in gaining the knowledge they need to travel smarter and with independence, I offer premium courses to share with you all the knowledge I’ve gained over the last 10+ years.. As new courses become available, you’ll be able to save even more by bundling them together!
