'I travel the world in first-class style without paying a single cent.'

“Never travel alone.”

That’s the slogan for MissTravel.com, an online dating site that guarantees to “add some spice” to your next vacay.

Founded by Brandon Wade – the CEO of other “niche” dating sites such as WhatsYourPrice.com (where you “bid” on a date with a woman) and SeekingArrangement.com (where “sugar daddies” can easily find prospective “sugar babies”) – MissTravel.com connects male clientele with “attractive” female travellers.

Like 21-year-old Jessica, for example.

The Brisbane-born millennial is fresh from a trip to California, where she spent over two weeks with a male companion she met on the site. On the holiday, she didn’t pay a single cent.

"It took 24 hours to approve my profile and even before then I had men messaging me," the personal trainer told Daily Mail Australia.

"Some people wanted to have a chat first, others would just say straight away, 'these are the dates and where I'm going, do you want to come?'"

In the interests of investigating, I made a MissTravel account myself. After entering my name, birth date, and profile photo, I was also given the option to disclose my "body type", "income" and "net worth". A quick search of potential dates produced options like, "retired 65yo looking for fun" and "58 - enjoy the finer things in life... especially women".

While Jessica was tentative about flying across the world to meet a man, she told the publication a video call with her USA beau settled her nerves. The resulting holiday, she says, was a slice of paradise.

"I got there and realised I forgot to pack some things and he took me shopping and bought me what I wanted. I was living in luxury for a while."

The women have no obligations to their male counterparts on the holiday, the trade-off is their companionship only. On Jessica's vacation, for example, she and her travel buddy slept in five-star hotels like The Hilton, albeit in separate bedrooms.

For any with aspirations of becoming a MissTravel.com member, Jess has some words of advice: 'put it all on the table'. That is, be explicit about what your boundaries are, and in doing so take safety precautions.
