Are you fed up of spending thousands of dollars on travel? Then, there’s a good news! Travel hacking is the answer to your travel-related problems. It’s an exciting method to convert welcome bonuses and other incentives into airline miles, which can be used to get discounted or even cheap flights from your dream destinations. With a little bit of creativity and some insider know-how, you’ll travel for free in no time.

The Basics of Travel Hacking

Travel hacking is about trading credit card sign-up bonuses and rewards for airline miles. The miles can be used to buy discounted or even free flights. Certain credit cards will also permit you to use miles to pay for hotel stays or rental car offers.

How Does it Work?

The key to success in hacking your travel plans is to take advantage of credit card sign-up bonuses and building out a frequent flyer mile program with a limited number of airlines. When it’s time to book a flight take a look at the price. If the price is less than $300, it’s best to pay cash and use your miles to pay to book a higher-priced flight. If your flights begin to climb higher than $500, it’s best to check your frequent flyer accounts to see which airline can give you the best price. It all comes down to the number of points or miles you have in your travel savings account for every airline.

Begin by Getting Started with Travel Hacking

Are you ready to discover the secrets to travel hacking? The first step is opening a credit card with a sign-up offer. There are plenty of great credit cards that offer a variety of features and benefits. It depends on the type of airline, your habits with spending and the features that are most important to you.

Top Credit Card Picks

Here are some credit cards that are excellent to use for hacking travel:

  • Chase Sapphire Reserve
  • Chase United Explorer
  • JetBlue Mastercard
  • Capital One Venture X

If you’ve been approved for a credit or debit card, you’ll have to meet the limit of spending minimum in order to qualify for the bonus. Every card has different guidelines, so make certain to verify this information. From there you can begin to rack up miles and using them to plan your dream trip!

Are you ready to set sail with your points?

Once you’ve accumulated the points amount, it’s time to use them towards nice travel! Different credit card providers will have different methods of redeeming your points. Here are some examples from a few of the ones I have experience with:

Take a trip with Chase Ultimate Rewards

If you own a Chase credit card, then you are able to redeem your points via the Ultimate Rewards portal. In the portal, you’ll have access to virtually every airline and you can combine money and points to book your trip. You can book your flight entirely using points if you’ve got enough balance! Sometimes, even if you don’t be able to accumulate enough points in order to pay for full price, you can buy flights with Chase Ultimate Rewards portal and pay the balance in cash using the credit card of your choice.

 

United

Are you tired of paying full price for flights? Did you know that when you book directly through United You have the option to pay with dollars or points? Be careful, if you do not have enough points you aren’t able to combine points and dollars on the same flight. No worries though, if you’re just a few point short United also offers the option of buying additional miles.

JetBlue

Are you looking for a domestic flight? Look no further than JetBlue! JetBlue provides an enjoyable and comfortable flight experience with extra legroom as well as free snacks. Additionally, their booking process is like United’s which allows passengers to book flights using JetBlue either dollars or points but not both. The difference is that JetBlue offers a distinct feature that lets you combine your points with your family members and earn points twice as quickly. Be sure to prove you’re really family before trying to hack into the system.

Hit that Minimum Spend

If you’re like me and my travel buddy Becca, you’re probably pretty economical and it’s difficult to think of spending thousands of dollars in order to meet the minimum spend for a credit card bonus. But don’t fret as we’ve done it and are here to share our tips and tricks.

Pay your rent (if you can)

This is a huge one! If you’re able to pay for your rent with credit card, then do it! Just be prepared to pay a cost, which is usually about 3%. It might be worth it over the long term if the bonus is high enough.

Pay for a medical bill

Another way to reach the spending limit is to cover an medical bill. If you do not have any medical expenses in the near future, ask your relatives if you could pay them for theirs, and they will reimburse you.

Pay off the loan

If you’re a borrower take into consideration repaying them using an credit card. Just make sure you pay off the credit card balance in full , so that you don’t accrue additional debt.

Ask family members for assistance

Discuss your family with them and determine if they’ve got any big expenses coming up which you could help pay for. Just make sure you have confidence in the person you are talking to and they are aware of the reason for doing it.

Purchase gifts

If you’re celebrating the holidays, consider buying all your gifts using the credit card you have. So you’ll be able to reach the minimum spending requirement and be ready for giving gifts. Make sure that you’re not paying more than you already thinking of.

There are a lot of methods to get the most of your travel credit card and accrue points or miles to use towards flights or other travel-related expenses. Here are a few additional suggestions for maximising the rewards you earn:

Pay for travel expenses using your credit card

Whenever you’re planning a trip, use you travel credit card for booking your hotel, flight or rental car, as well as other travel costs. You’ll not only be able to hit the required amount to qualify for a credit card bonus as well, but you’ll also earn points or miles on those costs.

Make use of your credit card to pay for everyday costs

Another way to hit the minimum spend in order to accumulate points using your credit card for every day costs. This could be items like groceries, gas or even your phone bill. Make sure you pay off the balance each month in full so you don’t accrue interest charges.

Take advantage of bonus categories

Many travel credit cards offer miles or bonus points on certain kinds of purchases, like eating out or travelling. Make sure you review your credit card’s rewards program and take advantage of the bonus categories that are in line with your spending habits.

Think about the possibility of transferring your balance

If you are currently in debt on a high-interest credit card, think about transferring the balance to the travel credit card which has the introductory APR of 0% for balance transfers. This will enable you to pay off your debts without accruing interest. It will also aid in achieving the minimum spend for the credit card bonus.

Utilize your miles and points wisely

Once you’ve accumulated a substantial amount of miles or points, be sure to use the points or miles wisely. Review the rewards program for your credit card and then compare the benefits of different redemption options. For example using points to purchase a flight directly through the airline may give you a better return than using them for a gift card.

Another option is to get an rewards card that permits you to transfer your rewards to different loyalty program. This allows you to enjoy a greater variety of choices and more freedom when it comes to redeeming your rewards. For instance, you might be able to transfer your reward to frequent flyer programs of airlines or a hotel rewards program. This can give you access to a greater variety of hotels, flights as well as other travel perks that aren’t available through the rewards program on your credit card.

Additionally, try to discover if your credit card offers some perks that could help you save money on travel expenses. A lot of credit cards provide travel insurance and rental car insurance, baggage protection and other benefits that can be extremely valuable when you’re traveling.

Finally, when you’re traveling with someone else and both of you earn rewards using your credit card. Be aware that you cannot share the costs on the same card. Also, make sure to keep track of the rewards you earn separately.

The key to making the most of your travel rewards is to know the rewards program of your credit card and to ensure you’re using this program in the most efficient way possible. Through a combination of the strategies I’ve listed, you’ll be able to earn rewards fast, exchange them for travel experiences that are worth it and take advantage of a broad range of travel perks.
