I have written before about the Kindle Unlimited program (a service I subscribe to) and how it is a must-have for travelers. The thing that makes it so great for travelers, besides having access to over 1 million books up to 10 at a time, is that the Lonely Planet Guidebooks are all included as well. That makes this deal of getting Kindle Unlimited for $7.50 per month a great deal!
Sale: Get Access To All Lonely Planet Guidebooks For $7.50 Per Month
– Kindle Unlimited $7.50 Per Month Link (when purchased in 6, 12, or 24 month blocks)
Kindle Unlimited is a subscription-based service with Amazon that gives you access to over 1,000,000 books – digitally. You can keep the books as long as you want (with the subscription) with a limit of 10 books at one time. To take out more than 10, you simply have to “return” a book to get another one. There is no due date so you can “keep” the books as long as you want. But, if you have 10 taken out, you will have to return one to get another. But there is no time limit so you could return one and then take it out again 1 minute later.
Plus, you do not need a Kindle for the service. You can read these books through the Kindle app on your smartphone, tablet, or computer!
Why “A Must For Travelers?”
If you are like me, you try to get as much information before you depart on a trip as you can. Not only that, but it is nice to have a travel guide on the trip for reference as well. The bad part for me is that my bookshelf used to be full of Lonely Planet travel guides – bad because I never used them again after the trip! Sure, they were indispensable to me in preparing for the trip and actually being on the trip, but I do not have any great use after I return. I would have borrowed them from my library, but they never had the locations I needed in an updated format (many were over 10 years old – a lot can change in a country in 10 years!).
Well, the whole Lonely Planet collection is available through the Kindle Unlimited program! Many of these books are expensive even for Kindle edition! Instead, you can start your Kindle Unlimited membership during the month of your trip, borrow as many books as you need (up to 10 at once) and then cancel it until your next trip! Instead of paying a lot of money for your travel guides, they all only cost $10. That is a great deal and one which should be available for any place you visit.
Listening on the Go
How about if you are in the middle of a book and you are going out for a run or need to drive somewhere? The Kindle Unlimited program also offers Voice with WhisperSync. This does not replace an Audible collection but does allow you to access the audio of thousands of the books. It will sync with where you are in the book and start up from that point as you switch to audio. Then, it will sync the actual book later as well.

Great Gift & Resource Idea
In addition, you can also pick up books about the history of where you are going or maybe even current events. Now, you can do that for as little as $7.50 per month when you pay for service in 6 month, 12 month, or 24 month blocks. You can also gift it to a friend or loved one. If you have a friend/family member taking a trip, this could be the perfect birthday present to help get them on their way!
If you would like a Kindle (though you do not need one with this service), they have a sale on Kindle devices right now as well – $20 off. Check this link to see which model may be best for you. I personally have the Kindle Paperwhite ($99 with the sale) and love the backlight that it has for nighttime use!
