Frequent Flyer Tips
If you enjoy earning free miles (and who doesn't?) check out the Website called www.frugaltravel guy.com. It offers a lot of information on the best credit cards to use for travel and the best sign up bonuses being offered, as well as general travel tips.
This writer's definition of frugal travel is similar to mine, not hostels and backpacking but finding decent hotels for modest prices and flying for as little as possible. A lot of credit cards now offer 50,000 or more free miles just for signing up, and that usually equates to a free trip or two. I know people who, like frugal travel guy, just sign up for cards to get the miles, use them and then cancel the card. One friend was able to take a pretty extensive trip in Asia doing this.
You have to be careful how you do this, or it could have an adverse impact on your credit score, but this Website offers tips on that too.
I myself have only once used frequent flyer miles for a trip, and it was a good one, Montreal to Buenos Aires. I have enough miles now on another carrier for a long trip, so guess I should use them soon, as the airlines can make it more expensive by upping mileage requirements.
If you have the patience to juggle a lot of different credit cards and frequent flyer programs, this Website is definitely one what is worth your attention.
