Travel blogger Naomi Isted explains why she leaves her kids in economy as she travels FIRST CLASS

A mother-of-two who gets paid to travel the world has revealed she doesn’t feel guilty for leaving her husband and children in economy while she upgrades to first class.

Naomi Isted, 40, a luxury travel blogger from Essex, shares Fleur, nine, and Rocco, three, with property developer Haydn, 40.

The family enjoy as many as six exotic holidays a year, where Naomi is often asked to share a sponsored post about the resort to her Instagram, which boasts 94,000 followers. 

And while Naomi often pays to upgrade her seat to first class when the opportunity arises, her husband and children are left firmly behind in economy class, with the mother arguing that it will teach the youngsters the ‘value of money’.

Arguing that the children are too young to appreciate first class and she is keen to teach them the value of money, Naomi says the flight is a chance for her to plan her blog posts and travel videos. 

‘I don’t feel guilty as they are too young to appreciate first class yet,’ Naomi, who recently returned from St Lucia and is planning her next trip to America, told FEMAIL. 

Explaining that the company who sponsoring her is already paying for standard travel and accommodation for the whole family, she continued: ‘I make the choice for them to travel economy on work trips as I’m often upgraded.

‘I don’t like to put it on the brand or client to upgrade them too as they’re already paying for them to have an experience as well’.

Naomi added: ‘It also shows the children that when you work and work hard, you get rewarded’. 

Speaking about how her husband feels about being left in economy, she continued: ‘Haydn is fine about it. 

‘Like myself, he appreciates spending time with the kids and in these particular situations, he understands what I’m bringing to our lives. We are so lucky to even get to travel’.

She added: ‘The kids understand that it’s my job and why I’m in first class, whilst they’re in economy, because hard work brings rewards’.
