Travel Hacking News – Ep. 1

What’s up Travel Tribe,

Today’s “Travel Hacking News” post will be the first of many, which will feature blog posts from around the travel hacking community.  Reading these types of articles is how I learned to create my own Travel Freedom.  If any of them spark your interest, absolutely give them a read.  The more you read about travel hacking, the more you’ll learn, and the more ideas you’ll have for your own travel freedom.  If you have any questions about anything you read, hit me up!  I’ll give you an answer or do my best to find one.

Enough of the intro… Let’s jump right in to some Travel Hacking News.

This one’s about saving money on food during your travels.  My personal favorite way to save on food, is by staying at condos.  With a kitchen, I’m able to pack snacks and lunches while on the go, and make meals for a majority of the trip’s dinners.  Most condos also have public barbecues!

SALE ALERT!  Alaska Airlines is having a sale from many west coast cities to my favorite place in the world.  HAWAII!!!  Hopefully you can take advantage of this one… If you do, I’ve got some Hawaii hints for you.

Stopovers are when, instead of flying from point A to point C, you fly from A to B and spend some time visiting, then finish your route to point C.  I need to start taking advantage of this more myself.

DEAL ALERT!  The American Express Blue Business Plus credit card is offering a signup bonus that they usually don’t.  This is a card that’s great for regular spending because it earns 2 Membership Rewards points for every dollar spent.  Not bad, right?

Use them, or lose them.  Well, sort of… Points and miles occasionally are devalued and end up not being worth as much in travel rewards.  Also, if you have inactivity in your accounts, you may lose your points.  Don’t let that happen.  Trust me, I let some expire on accident recently and I’m still upset about it.

When booking tickets, remember to always check alternative airports for both departure and arrival locations.  If you’re having trouble finding a flight, every so often you’ll get lucky and this will save you.
