Imagine being able to fly anywhere in the world as often as you want — for free. Imagine staying in an overwater bungalow in the Maldives for free. Wouldn’t that be great? Wouldn’t never paying flights and accommodation allow you to travel more?
Well, it’s possible — and I know because I do it all the time.
What’s kept me traveling for so many years is not great riches, but lots of frequent flier miles and hotel points.
Every year I collect hundreds of thousands of miles that keep me in first class flights and W hotel suites……without ever stepping foot on an airplane or in a hotel.
Hello! My name is Matt and I’m a travel hacker.
What’s a travel hacker?
A travel hacker is a person who uses loyalty rewards systems to gain hundreds of thousands of miles per year without traveling.
That number of points is enough to take you and your family anywhere in the world multiple times a year.
This year alone I have already collected over 400,000 frequent flier and hotel points (it’s been a slow year). That’s enough to keep even this nomad traveling for years.
The biggest reason people say they can’t travel more is money. They don’t have enough of it, they say. Well, I don’t either so I remove money from the equation by using the system to collect points to travel for free.
Because when travel is free, the world is truly your oyster.
I know travel hacking can be a confusing topic – all those reward programs, redemptions, flight alliances, credit card bonuses, and offers. There’s a lot of moving parts.
My friend Dave is trying to travel to South Korea with his girlfriend and was recently complaining about the cost of airline tickets.
“Why don’t you travel hack?” I said.
“That stuff is too complicated.” he said. “And I don’t want to ruin my credit.”
“It’s not, and it won’t,” I said. I quickly laid it out for him how, with minimal effort, he and his girlfriend could earn enough points to get to South Korea in six months.
I want to help you like I helped my friend so you can travel cheaper and more often.
I will remove the biggest roadblock to your travels.

Travel hacking may seem complicated, it may seem perplexing, and it may seem too good to be true, but it’s not.

It’s turning down that family vacation or first class honeymoon you’ve always wanted.

A lot of people say they don’t have the money for travel. With the tricks you’ll learn in this book, you’ll never need to say that again.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is this book only for Americans?
If you’re American, you’ll get the most out of the book but residents of Canada and the UK will also find the information in the book relevant. As much as I wish this book could apply worldwide, in my research I did not find anything relatable to residents of other countries. There just isn’t that much travel hacking that can be done outside the listed countries. I wish there was.
I’m already an avid travel hacker. I read Flyertalk daily. Is this book for me?
Simply put: no. If you’ve been travel hacking for a long time, this book won’t be for you.
How will I get this book?
You’ll be e-mailed a download link and you’ll be able to open the file on your computer, Kindle, Nook, iPad, or phone.
I don’t fly a lot. Should I buy this book?
Whether you fly once or ten times per year, this book will help you get free flights and hotel rooms. There are no restrictions. Use the advice in this book as much or as little as possible.
The book is expensive. I don’t want to spend $37!
This book is full of information and bonuses that make it worth the price. You’ll be traveling for free for years to come. Spending $37 is a lot better than spending $2,000 to fly your family to Disney World for a week.
