The Shortcut to Free Admirals Club Access

We all know the dreaded airport experience. You know, the one where your Uber gets you there late, you get herded through TSA security lines, and you get stuck behind the person that forgets to empty out their liquids. Even once you’re through security, you’re stuck in an overcrowded terminal and can’t find anywhere to sit by the gate. Thankfully, premium travel rewards cards have helped make this process much...

How to Park in the UK – the JustPark App

Whenever we travel, we almost always rent a car. It is typically marginally more expensive or sometimes less expensive than round trip public transit and allows us the flexibility to take a bunch of side trips that public transit doesn’t allow. The problem that we run into for London is the cost to park at many hotels in the city. Luckily, I came across an app that has saved me hundreds of pounds when we visit. It’s called...

How you can Exchange Foreign Currency for Lower Fees

While credit cards are accepted now almost everywhere in the world, there’s often a need for cash when you’re traveling abroad. The problem that many travelers often run into is where to find said currency, especially without paying an arm and a leg to do so. I want to focus on both the before-the-trip aspect and during-the-trip aspect, since many people still feel that you MUST have money on you when you travel (hot tip...

Hyatt’s Best Rate Guarantee: Stud or Dud?

When it comes to hotel best rate guarantees, I’m usually pretty skeptical. Hotels always seem to find some loophole or make it prohibitively difficult to avoid honoring it. In the end, they’re usually nothing more than a good marketing tool. Typically, I’ve avoided using guarantees for those reasons. If the price is close, I’ll book through the hotel’s site. This still allows me to enjoy elite benefits...

The Never-Ending Status Dilemma

The Never-Ending Status Dilemma

When you think elite status, you probably think upgrades, lounge access, priority check-in, and top-notch treatment. The higher status you hold, the better treatment you get. That all that sounds great, so why wouldn’t you want to hold elite status with an airline? Unfortunately, just focusing on elite status can overlook another important part of the equation – airline miles. While elite status comes with some great...

The Best Mileage Program You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

What makes a great frequent flyer program? For some it’s value of the program’s miles. For others, it’s the ease of redemption. Maybe it’s the perks that come with elite status. The unfortunate reality is, you’re probably not going to get one program that checks all the boxes. Let’s take Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan, for example. It’s one of my favorite frequent flyer programs. If based on the...

Does it Make Sense to Use a Cheap Flight Alert Service?

We all love a great flight deal. For some of us, it’s a chance to visit a new destination we didn’t think was possible. For others, a chance to visit family or friends. However, in our increasingly busy lives, it seems like there’s less time in the day to search for those deals. A few weeks ago, an incredible first class deal from Qantas popped up. The deal was for round trip airfare from Bangkok to Australia for...

How to Book a Nested 2-in-1 Trip

We’ve seen countless cheap premium cabin fares from Europe to the US. However, cheap flights from the US to Europe seem to be much less common.

Of course not! What do you mean by a “nested 2-in-1 trip”? Before...
