Danielle Desir

TRAVEL FINANCE STRATEGIST, WRITER & PODCASTER

 

I’m a Connecticut based travel writer and finance expert who loves talking about financially savvy travel and money. I’m obsessed with cheap flights, beer fests, Bermuda’s dreamy beaches and Iceland’s mighty waterfalls.

 

I am the Founder & Editor in Chief of the award-winning travel finance blog and podcast, The Thought Card and the local Connecticut travel blog CT-Thought Card.

WHY I DO THIS

I love serving the world by showing people how to afford to travel more, pay off debt and build wealth. I do this by focusing on actionable financial advice, highlighting captivating travel destinations and lots of adventure. Most days you can find me sharing a new travel hack or money tip that I discovered.

 

I help clients produce high-quality, well-researched articles. From figuring out how much to budget for a trip to Ireland to picking the right managed IRA retirement account, I source content by engaging readers with the insightful information they need to make informed decisions.
