Miss Travel Review: Does It Work? Here’s Everything You Need to Know

By Caitlin

ARE YOU A SUGAR BABY? GET PAID TO WRITE FOR US!

Sugar babies come in all shapes and sizes, across a wide range of ages but it’s fair to say that the majority of sugar babies fall into the millennial generation. And if there’s one thing millennials love more than avocado toast, it’s got to be traveling.

It’s repeated in pretty much every generational survey and study: millennials value experiences over possessions. So much so that in a recent survey by Realty Mogul, 47% of people between the ages of 18 and 34 said they’d rather spend their money on traveling than buying a house.

Makes sense. After all, why get trapped by a mortgage when you could be roaming the world – young, wild and free?

The thing is, though, most of us can barely afford to pay for round-trip airfare, much less to travel around the world in unadulterated luxury. So what’s an underpaid, wanderlusting sugar baby to do?

Meet MissTravel. It’s a unique take on the mutually beneficial sugar relationship – except that the sugar here isn’t necessarily an allowance. It’s an all-expense paid vacation.

What is MissTravel?

There you are: young, beautiful and ambitious. You have a list of travel fantasies you’d love to experience, from snorkeling in Belize, learning to make pizza in Italy, bathing in Iceland’s Blue Lagoon, getting that perfect shade of golden in Bora Bora, spending a day at the Louvre.

The only thing getting in the way of these dreams is that you’re a bit short on the money front.

There he is: older, wiser and richer. He travels often, sometimes for work and sometimes to relax and unwind from the pressures of work. He’s already well-traveled, cultured and he’s been to several of your dream locations several times. But what he’s missing is someone to help him see everything with new eyes, a travel companion that makes the travel more worthwhile. And he’s willing to foot the bills for the right companion.

It sounds like the perfect match, yes? And that’s all MissTravel does – it provides a platform for these two complementary parties to meet, plan their travels and then have the time of their lives.

The concept is simple and that’s what makes it brilliant. But…does it work?

Does MissTravel Work?

It’s a fair question but it’s sort of like asking whether Match.com works or whether SeekingArrangement.com works. The point is: it works if you do.

So let’s be straight here: Miss Travel is like any other dating platform. If you think you’re going to set up a profile, create a trip detailing your dream vacation, and then voila! – have a tall, handsome, generous man rush in to send you first class tickets to Costa Rica…you’re going to be disappointed.

On the other hand, if you’re willing to invest the time and effort to set up a complete profile with well-rounded, attractive pictures and an appealing description, search through the site for members you’d actually like to travel with and trips you’d like to take, and then go through the process of vetting each potential member and getting to know the ones who meet your criteria – you’ll probably be able to check off your travel bucket list with this site.

Is Miss Travel Safe?

Let’s address the elephant in the room: the safety of traveling to a new location with someone you’ve never met. When you’re a beginner sugar baby, it can be nerve-wrecking enough to meet a POT at your local cafe for the first time. So if the thought of going to a foreign country with a man you’ve never met freaks you out – well, that’s perfectly natural.

For the most part, we advise sugar babies to follow a set of rules when it comes to traveling to meet a potential sugar daddy. And the majority of that should be followed when you use Miss Travel as well.

There’s also several other things you’ll want to consider…

  • Verify. Always. MissTravel does provide an optional stamp of verification to users who pay for a background check so these members should be your first choice. If you’re meeting a complete stranger without MissTravel verification in a foreign country, make sure he is who he says he is before you depart. If they’re not in the same city as you, do Skype calls. Look up their name and LinkedIn profile, their Facebook page, their company website.
  • Go where you’re comfortable. If you’ve never been outside of the US, it’s probably not a good idea to take your first MissTravel trip to Borneo or Madagascar. Instead, stick to more newbie-friendly countries like France, England, Australia, Canada. Save the more exotic destinations until your travel feet are more secure.
  • Get to know your travel partner. Most trips on MissTravel are arranged several weeks – even months – in advance so you have plenty of time to get to know the person you’ll be traveling with. Don’t skimp on this and make the time and effort to really get to know them so you can see whether you two will get on.
  • Set expectations upfront. What do you want to do while traveling, who should pay for what, what will happen in the off chance that you feel no chemistry? The nitty gritty details can seem annoying but these are the matter you’ll want to have settled and agreed upon before setting off on vacation together.
  • Secure the essentials. The essentials are a room of your own, money for food and a flight back home. Make sure you have these booked and guaranteed before you depart on the trip.
  • Emergency money. It’s a really smart idea to make sure you have enough money to get you home safe and sound in case anything goes south or even if you simply decide you just don’t get on with your travel companion. Anything can happen and it helps to know you have a stash of cash to fall back on, just in case.

Lastly, keep in mind that if you’re staying in your own country and visiting another city, it’s less of a concern. But when it’s international travel, you will want to take some extra measures like getting the number of your embassy and researching the area, especially if you’re going somewhere very remote or to a developing country.

Oh, it also helps to know that while MissTravel doesn’t take responsibility for the trips arranged on their platform, they have been known to help out in situations where members got stranded.

Is Miss Travel a Scam?

People like to say that a lot of things are “scams.” But just because it didn’t work for everyone, it doesn’t make it a scam.

So don’t be swayed by negative reviews about Miss Travel – there’s negative reviews for every site out there because there will always be people who weren’t able to find their dream partner as well as the unfortunate fact that there are scammers on pretty much every dating site.

Miss Travel is no exception and yes, there are scammers on this site. The member base is close to a million people so of course there’s going to be a few scammers who manage to sneak their way in.

The good news is if you’re a sugar daddy, aka Generous Traveler, that the scammers are pretty darn easy to spot and avoid. If you’ve used any online dating site, you know the drill: Profile pictures will look too good to be true, they’ll have a generic profile and their descriptions will be slightly strange, either grammatically or using words and phrases that exactly no one in the States uses. And of course, when in doubt, you can always ask the person for a Skype video call. If they refuse and make excuses, they’re probably not who they say they are.

For sugar babies, aka Attractive Travelers, the presence of scammers can also be used for your benefit. Here’s why: You know how sugar babies always complain about scammers on sugar daddy sites? Well, there’s the opposite side of that coin, too, and it’ll be helpful to sugar babies to remember that there are less-than-legit escorts and scammers posing as sugar babies.

Simply by showing up as a genuine, interesting, intelligent and attractive person in your profile, you immediately differentiate yourself from the scammy “competition.”

Plus, for sugar babies, we have to say that Miss Travel actually has a really decent member base, at least in the more cosmopolitan cities. There’s plenty of Generous Travelers in vicinities like NYC, San Francisco, and Chicago who are honestly pretty awesome. We’d even say that the member base here is better than some bigger, more established sugar daddy sites.

Is Miss Travel Worth It?

There are nearly 1 million members worldwide and over half a million trips that have been booked with MissTravel so a lot of people would agree that yes, it’s worth it.

Also consider the fact that it’s free for women, aka Attractive Travelers and you have nothing to lose by signing up. Even for men, aka Generous Members, you have the option to purchase a single month membership so you can try it out at very little risk.

But to go more into the nitty gritty of whether it’s a site worth spending your time and effort on – we’d say it depends on what you’re looking for.

For example, if your main goal is a long-term sugar daddy who provides a regular allowance to cover your living expenses (and more) – you’re better off investing your time and energy on the best sugar daddy websites. MissTravel, ‘though great for travel, is not ideal for meeting long-term sugar daddies or allowance-based arrangements.

On the other hand, if your main goal is to travel, have experiences that you couldn’t have afforded (or even known about) on your own, and meet people from around the world – this is the perfect site to do that. The member base is truly international and there are so many trips being coordinated at any given moment to pretty much every destination on earth.

So if you’ve been dreaming about the dream vacation – MissTravel is definitely worth a try. And it takes just a minute to sign up for…

I Had A Good Experience on the Site; My Travel Companion to Hawaii Was Interesting

https://imgur.com/a/t3NUN1F

I was in need of a female travel companion to go with me to Hawaii toward the end of 2017 and I had quite a few beautiful women to choose from very quickly after I posted my trip proposal on MissTravel. I narrowed the field down to two finalists who I then video chatted with. Both women were young and beautiful but one stood out (a young woman named Celine from Norway as being much more sincere and interested in getting to know me. The other woman, a young professional from Chicago, did not make our video chat a priority, imho, since she decided to take it from her car while en-route to a coffee shop instead of from a place where she was entirely focused on our call and nothing else (like I was).

The trip itself was pretty fair for what I wanted to get out of it. By my way of thinking, Celine did not pack her bag with clothing she could actually use and wear on our trip, so I ended up buying her several “Hawaii Outfits” and a swimsuit on our first full day in Hawaii. She had brought a huge suit case filled with random, thrown together and largely mismatched nightclub outfits. I found that odd at the time… and I now suspect that the jumbled contents of this large suit case represented Celine’s complete collection of possessions in a “nomadic” sort of way. Celine also had a ton of beauty supplies of every possible imagination and she ended up strewing these all around our bedroom. It got so bad that I would have to spend about ten minutes every night moving her stuff out of the way just so I had a place to sleep! She also did not seem well versed in how a shower / bathtub worked and I felt inclined to show her how to position the inner, plastic shower curtain inside the tub in order to avoid flooding the bathroom floor whilst taking a shower… oh boy!

On the whole… I would say that I got what I wanted out of my MissTravel experience. It was wonderful having a beautiful, sexy model caliber woman with me for this trip. I hope Celine enjoyed my company and what she managed to see of Hawaii… she had a lot of “down time” dealing with things like bad hair extensions (which we fixed together by buying new ones and sewing clips to the new extensions as an unexpected but fun craft project and bonding experience) and smartphone issues with her new but not-so-waterproof Samsung Galaxy S8.

Alas, Celine and I parted ways after our trip to Hawaii… largely because I challenged her to aim a little higher in life so that it would actually align more closely with the version of herself that she portrayed on her Instagram account. Celine was not at all amused by my suggestion and she made it clear that we would not be remaining in contact going forward. While I respect her decision, I do find her lack of gratitude very unsavory. Especially given how well I respected her boundaries during our trip and how well I treated her. For example, Celine ditched me on our last night in Hawaii to go to a “party” allegedly hosted by some locals she had met. She was gone all night and she did not respond to calls or texts. I didn’t sleep at all that night out of worrying for her safety. I was so worried that at around 4 am I called the hospitals and the local jail to see if she was admitted or locked up. Celine finally turned up back in the morning (looking very tired and disheveled) less than one hour before we had to leave for the airport. Despite this, I bought her some souvenirs on our way to the airport along with some holiday gifts from Hawaii that she could give to her family back in Norway,

Regardless of the bizarre and sometimes annoying experiences I had on my trip to Hawaii with Celine… If I am ever in need of travel companionship again, I would use this site.

Tip for consumers: *** Immediately Avoid and Block ANYONE…
1) Asking you for money up front.
2) Who refuses or defers in any way your request for a live video chat to verify who they are.
3) Who acts in a way that indicates they are not really interested in getting to know you for you.
4) Who’s actions do not align with their stated intentions.

*** Check out the r/sugarlifestyleforum on Reddit for a lot of great information about the ins and outs of sugaring. This site is a form of sugaring, imho.
