Description

The Complete Guide to Travel Hacking is everything you need to outsmart travel. Unlike most travel websites and blogs, The Complete Guide to Travel Hacking let’s you stop clicking around, and jump right into the contest that matters most. This course is broken down into two main parts.

Part 1: Travel Toolbox: here you will learn the in-depth secrets of the travel industry in order to understand what makes a fare expensive as well as how to avoid common pitfalls that lead to paying costly fees. Once you understand the system, you will be taught proven step-by-step techniques that will save you hundreds when searching for round-trip airfare. Travel Toolbox doesn’t stop with just teaching you how to find cheap flights, you’ll also learn key secrets that will make airline customer service work for you as well as a complete guide to help you hack lodging.

Estimated savings per year: $150-$375

Part 2: Points Pro: here you will learn how to decode frequent flyer programs and leverage credit card sign-up bonuses to earn thousands in free travel. The information presented in Points Pro builds on the concepts of Travel Toolbox and when used together will enable you to travel in ways, you never thought were possible. Points Pro starts with a deep look into the world of points and miles and gives you step-by-step strategies for analyzing credit cards and maximizing your redemptions. Unlike most travel blogs which urge you to “go wild” when applying for credit cards in order to score free travel, Points Pro is taught from a realistic and conservative standpoint while giving guidance on evaluating which cards are right for you, and evaluating an annual fee.

Points Pro is supplemented by an Advanced Guide to Points and Miles for users looking to complete more complex redemptions.

Estimated savings per year: $1,000+

The Complete Guide to Travel Hacking is backed by a 100% money back guarantee. If you aren’t satisfied for any reason, simply shoot us an email and a no-hassle refund will be processed. The feedback thus far has been overwhelmingly positive.
