Scott Mackenzie (a.k.a. “Scottrick”)
The term “travel hacking” sounds illegal, but all it means is being very knowledgeable about the loopholes, mistakes, and other technical aspects of travel. With that information, you can travel more often feeling reassured that you found the best deal.
Almost everyone has had a bad travel experience. Pricing schemes and loyalty programs are complex for a reason, to maximize revenue and discourage free award travel. Yet for every loser there’s a winner who figures out the system and makes it work in his or her favor.
My goal is to bring all of this under one roof. You don’t need to be an international globetrotter to benefit from travel hacking. Even my family members who travel once or twice a year still come to me for advice that has saved them $10s, $100s, and even $1000s of dollars per trip. So look around, ask questions, and I hope the next time you board a plane you’ll be turning left!
