After spending my entire life in the states, I moved to the UK last summer. Since then, it’s made me realize that low cost carriers (LCCs) in Europe aren’t all that bad.

Booked: The World’s Cheapest (and Most Obscure?) Business Class Redemption

We recently shared a post about how to get a credit card as an expat. It’s a pretty simple way to continue earning American Express Membership Rewards while abroad and something I’ve personally taken advantage of.

Depending on the airline, a cheap premium economy fare can often be a great way to upgrade to business class on the cheap too. If...
