The best luxury travel blogs to read is always a highly debated topic. While there are significantly less luxury travel blogs than there are general travel blogs, there are still quite a lot of them (in various forms) out there. I specifically wanted to find the best luxury travel blogs that were aimed at the 20 & 30 something market, but also to go beyond the really big names that you find every time on these lists.
Pin ‘The Best Luxury Travel Blogs For 20 -40 year olds’
Actually, I found it a little hard to find genuine luxury travel blogs that I can relate to. The thing with luxury travel blogs is that blogs need to be updated often, but most of us don’t have the money to travel in a luxurious way week in, week out.
Hence, my search was filled with either:
- Travel blogs that catered to the backpacker / mid range market who occasionally posted luxury hotel reviews due to them being given free to the blogger. I want to state that there is nothing wrong with sponsored stays, we do them on The Trouvaille as well. The reason I am not considering these blogs however, is because they mostly post backpacking posts, and it’s not enough to sustain my interest as I only want to read about luxury experiences.
- Genuine luxury travel blogs, but they’re aimed at/ written by the older crowd. Again, there are many good luxury travel blogs here, but I just can’t always relate to the writer (or multiple writers) as I’m 15 – 30 years younger than them.
- Really cool luxury blogs, but they don’t solely focus on travel. I can travel in a luxurious way as I save a lot in other areas of my life, hence other luxury topics don’t really interest me.
- Luxury travel blogs written by luxury brands. I would like to prefer to read the experiences of an actual traveler rather than a company.
Alas I decided to try and make a list of luxury travel blogs to read for 20-30 year old’s following the criteria of:
- Majority of the content is based on luxury travel experiences,
- The writer being not too far out of their 20’s or 30’s (early forties is okay),
- Written by a blogger, not a company,
- Updated at least once a fortnight.
Those criteria narrow down the list significantly but I’ll try my best. See my list of the best luxury travel blogs to read for 20 & 30 somethings below.
The Best Luxury Travel Blogs To Read For 20 -40 Year Olds
At The Trouvaille we write about luxury travel experiences such as hotels, tours and couples getaways. As a couple we’ve visited about twenty countries including Switzerland, Colombia, Australia and China and have only just begun writing about our travels.
We want to give other twenty and thirty year olds some amazing ideas for their luxury vacations in all corners of the globe. Whether that be staying at a hotel with an amazing view in Switzerland, staying in the hotels of literary heros, finding romance in one of the biggest cities in the world, or seeking fine dining experiences no matter which city you’re in – we aim to cover it. We especially want to seek out the experiences that have great customer service, as I’m sure you can agree that customer service can make or break your experience.
Jean is the writer behind Holy Smithereens, a luxury travel blog which has a wide range of content on all types of luxury experiences. When I first started blogging Holy Smithereens was one of the first luxury travel blogs I came across. Apart from the great content on her blog, she has a lovely collection of pictures on her Instagram account which you should definitely check out as well.
Hippie In Heels
Rachel’s blog is about glamorous globetrotting – essentially meaning it’s part luxury travel and part girly. She’s lived in India for many years so she has a ton of great content from there both luxury and otherwise. Her blog would be a great read for ladies who prefer the luxury side of travel and want to know how to keep their girl-iness while traveling.
World of Wanderlust
World of Wanderlust is run by fellow Australian Brooke Saward. While her posts are often on the shorter side, I really like looking at her pictures and finding out about all the new luxury hotels she visits around the world. She posts very regularly on her blog and now spends about half the time traveling the world, the other half at home in Tasmania.
She also one of the biggest travel bloggers I know of so you are guaranteed a level of consistency from her in posting.
Once in a Lifetime Journey
The high altitude area around San Pedro de Atacama is absolutely stunning and otherworldly with fantastic landscapes that look like the moon, volcanos and geysers . . #volcano #atacama #cerrotoco #chile #visitchile #mountains #adventure #wonderful_places #livetravelchannel #infinitetravel #travelwithaninsider #lifewelltravelled #tierrahotels #hoteltierraatacama #highaltitude #adventuretravel #travelblogger #travel #luxurytravel #luxurytravelblogger #seechile #explorechile
I really like Mar’s luxury travel blog as I feel like we share certain desires in a luxury holiday. Luxury travelers are often perceived as being unadventurous, but Mar challenges those assumptions by travelling outside of the regular hot spots. She has travelled to a crazy number of countries through her work and her website is full of great ideas for both classic and unique luxury vacations.
Jess’s blog The Travelista provides a youthful approach to luxury travel in which she details her travels around the world. Her guides for the places she visits are quite in depth and would be a perfect read for readers in their 20’s and 30’s as they mix luxury while still visiting all the main tourist spots.

2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣6️⃣ Counting down my top 10 favourite travel pics of 2016! ? # 6 – Koh Tao, Thailand ?? Everything that could have possibly gone wrong during our visit to Koh Tao, went wrong. It was a disaster to say the least! I love this picture because it reminds me that even when shit goes wrong, then sun always sets and tomorrow is a new day.
Kelly’s blog is a luxury travel blog that has a decent amount of hotel reviews, helpful tips and city guides for her readers.
So that is my list of the best luxury travel blogs to read for 20 & 30 somethings. If you have any other suggestions please let me know in the comments, and if they fit the criteria I’ll add them in.
