Lydia joined the Latest Deals team in November 2020, just in time to share the best sales for the Black Friday rush. Since then she’s moved into writing our personal finance guides and sharing the latest money-saving news. She has written guides on everything from cheap travel advice, to the best bank accounts, all in the hopes of helping people make their money go further. Before joining Latest Deals, Lydia worked as part of the editorial team at Secret Escapes, writing up flash travel offers. That passion for saving money and finding the best price led her to apply for a role at Latest Deals. Outside of work Lydia loves to travel, and when she’s not doing that she’s reading anything set in America. She’s passionate about the London theatre scene, Japanese food, and dog walks in the countryside.
