3 Tips For Traveling The World Over 100K Miles Without Breaking The Bank

I have over 100,000 miles traveling around the world in the last year and a half. I’ve been able to do it without breaking the bank by using credit card and airline promotions. In this post I’ll explain how you can do the same.

1. Miles = Free Flights

As a digital nomad, I travel the world while working remotely. Over the past two years, I’ve flown over 100K miles and visited 15 countries. Want to know how I do it? Here are my top three tips for international travel:

1) Find a travel credit card with no annual fee and a high sign-up bonus

2) Use the right websites to book your flights (more on that later)

3) Minimize your luggage

Traveling internationally doesn’t have to be expensive and complicated – you just need to know how to do it right!

I’ve been traveling for the last 5 years non-stop and I’ve flown over 100,000 miles since I started. In that time I’ve flown on just about every major airline, from Singapore Airlines to United. In this blog post I want to share with you what I’ve learned about how to travel the world cheaply.

Tip 1: Fly in Business Class

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Flying in business class is not that much more expensive than flying in coach. Most people think that if they fly coach they are saving money, but what they don’t realize is that flying business class will save you more money over time. Here’s why:

Let’s say you have a business trip coming up and it costs $1,000 to fly coach or $2,500 to fly business class. The airline will give you a $500 voucher if you fly business class instead of coach, so your net cost is only $2,000. But the value of your time is worth much more than that! If you are able to get two extra hours of work done on the plane then your time would be worth at least $200/hour (assuming

1. Get a high sign on bonus credit card with no foreign transaction fees.

Credit cards are notorious for being a large source of debt in America, but they also give great rewards and free travel if used correctly. Look at the cards that offer large sign up bonuses (100k+), charge as many things to your card as possible, and pay it off in full every month to avoid interest charges. A great card for travelers is the Chase Sapphire Preferred because it has no foreign transaction fees, 2x points on all travel and dining, and offers 60k points after spending $4000 in 3 months. Each point is worth 1.25 cents towards travel so you will get $750 towards any flight or hotel you book through their website. I have used this card to fly around the world in business class for almost nothing, as well as stay at luxury hotels all over the world for nearly free!

2. Take advantage of stopover rules when booking flights!

Most people don’t know this but many airlines allow you to take advantage of their stopover rules when booking flights with them. This means that if you are flying from New York to London, you can actually stopover in Paris or Madrid on your way there for the same price as a direct flight from NYC

My husband and I were able to travel the world for two years without spending much money at all. In fact, we only spent $100k over the course of two years. This is how we did it.

1. Plan in advance.

In order to get the best deals on airplane tickets, you need to book in advance. You can use sites like Google Flights or Skyscanner to find great rates on flights. You can even set up alerts so that you get notified when a flight goes down in price! If you are flexible about where you want to go, then this is a great way to save money. You may not be able to go everywhere that you want, but it’s better than not traveling at all!

2. Pack light.

If you’re going to be traveling for an extended period of time, then it’s important that you pack light. Don’t bring anything that you don’t absolutely need, because lugging around extra luggage will make your trip more expensive and less fun! If possible, try not to check any bags at all–just pack everything into carry-on sized bags so that they can fit under your seat or overhead bin without taking up too much space.

1. Take advantage of those credit card sign up bonuses.

This is probably the easiest way to get miles and I’ve seen people get over 100,000 miles just by signing up for credit cards. Most airlines offer 40,000-60,000 miles as a signup bonus.

2. Do your research when it comes to redeeming your miles

If you are planning on booking flights months in advance, it is worth it to check the airline’s website for the best possible deal. I’ve seen round trip tickets from Boston to Bangkok for under 50k miles if you book a year in advance. In some cases, flying business class can be cheaper than economy class…or even free!

3. Keep an eye out for mistakes

I’ve been able to take advantage of pricing discrepancies quite a few times after doing a bit of research and asking questions on travel forums. For instance, I was able to fly business class from New York City to Bangkok and back for 90k miles instead of 140k!

1. Travel in the off season. This is the best tip by far, and I wish someone had told me this one a year ago when I first started traveling. The off season is not only when you’re least likely to encounter tourists, but it is also when you can find the best deals on flights. For example, if you are planning to travel around Asia, or even just a few countries in Europe, then traveling during the fall or winter months will be the cheapest time to fly.

2. Be flexible with your dates and times. Unless you’re planning to book months in advance, then you need to be flexible with your dates and times of travel if you want to get a good deal. If you’re booking a last minute flight, then look for departures on Tuesdays and Wednesdays as these typically have the best rates. Also if you have more flexibility with your departure date than your return date, then book a one way ticket for your outbound flight and search for a separate ticket for your return flight.

3. Avoid connecting flights at all costs! Ok, at all costs might be an exaggeration but I would definitely avoid connecting flights unless absolutely necessary. Connecting flights can save you some money on your ticket price but they will cost you time
