Family Guide to Almost Free Travel
If you have a good credit score and no major loans coming up in a near future, you can travel close to free with the help of credit card bonuses. More
I am a former tax professional, currently a stay-at-home mom. I belong to a small and a bit quirky community of travel hackers. Nothing illegal, I assure you! My family is middle class, and we are on a tight budget. Yet, we are able to afford trips to Europe and Hawaii, all with the help of frequent flyer miles and points. None of those miles were earned through flying.
I have acquired them by signing up for credit card bonuses and taking advantage of varying lucrative promotions. In this e-book, I hope to show that amazing travel opportunities are very much within the grasp of an average family in America. Full disclosure: This activity does require you to have good credit and no major loans coming up in the near future.
However, even if you don't intend to do any travel hacking, there is a lot of information in my book a regular family should find useful. It's really about optimizing your limited credit card spending potential and saving money in general, in order to afford travel. About half of the chapters deal with the best long-term credit card choices for a regular family.
There are websites out there that provide a lot of similar information. However, most of them focus on sign-up bonuses only and not long-term strategies. Additionally, they are tailored to single travelers who are looking to fly business class. My advice is geared toward a regular middle-class family with more realistic expectations. I hope you find it useful!
