With travel comes the inevitable amount of time spent in trains, planes and cars. But why not put this time to good use by listening to podcasts? We have curated a list of some of the best travel podcasts to listen to on your next adventure!

"Women Who Travel"

Hosted by Condé Nast Traveler editors, this podcast is all about the realities of traveling as a woman today. Covering topics such as the worst airport habits, family vacations, solo traveling and most importantly food.

 Estée Lalonde - "Travel"

Not a series about travel, but an episode of blogger Estee Lalonde’s podcast entirely dedicated to travel, whether it’s for business or pleasure. In this podcast she explains how ‘sometimes it’s the time away from home that helps you discover what home truly is’

"Extra Pack of Peanuts Travel Podcast"

Probably one of the most useful podcasts for avid travellers, as it is all about how to travel more and spend less (who wouldn’t want to do that?!) Host Travis Sherry lets listeners in on tips from how to utilise frequent flyer miles, score cheap hotels, pack like a pro and budget your trip. All essentials topics for someone constantly looking for an adventure.  

"The Travelers"

This podcast is aimed towards the more spiritual travellers. It’s all about both the physical element of travel as well as the mental journey that traveling provides us. The podcast features interviews with modern day explorers and travel influencers.


Another podcast by Condé Nast Traveller which is described as ‘as weekly conversation about where we’ve been and what we’ve discovered’. It’s a go-to podcast for learning about new and interesting places around the world. This podcast discusses more serious topics such as ‘how to plan for hurricane season’ to more lighter subjects like ‘thing’s you should never do in a hotel’.

"Amateur Traveler"

If you’re looking for information on a specific location this podcast is for you. Host Chris  Christensen talks about a different location in each episode and packs a lot of information in a short amount of time and who doesn’t like the convenience of getting all their information at once.
