Lauren Allen

Content editor | Expert on travel, saving money and making money online

Lauren Allen comes from a low income background and was the first in her family to attend university. As a creative, she chose to study Textiles and Surface Design at the University of Bolton.

Without financial support from her family, she funded her studies (and travels) through part-time work and overtime. Since graduating, Lauren has designed home textiles for multiple high-street retailers.

With a love for writing and editing, Lauren works with multiple clients on a freelance basis. This led her to join the Save the Student team in 2024.

Passionate about travel, Lauren loves inspiring others to explore the globe without the need to rely on others. As a solo traveller, she saves money by staying in hostels and visiting cheap destinations. In her spare time, she shares travel tips, inspiration and guides on her blog, Pack and Paint.

She’s been featured as an expert on travel blogs such as Iamsterdam, Wapp Travel Insurance and many more.
