the guide to travel hacking by nomadic matt

It doesn’t have to be that way.

You don’t have to struggle with saving up enough money to take a two-week vacation to the location of your dreams. There’s a way to use your everyday spending to be able to accumulate points and take the vacation of your dreams — without the huge pricetag.

You work hard. You want to get away. You deserve to take the trip that you’ve been dreaming about.

My name is Nomadic Matt and I’ve been traveling the world for the last 8 years. Growing up in Boston, I was never a big traveler. I didn’t take my first trip overseas until I was 23. Outside a cruise and college trip to Montreal, I had no travel experience. My first trip overseas was a tour to Costa Rica. That trip changed my life, and from that moment on, I was hooked.

I want to inspire you and to show you that it’s possible to travel without a lot of money. People always tell me how they wished they could do what I do and travel more. I’m here to tell you that you can. When I started traveling, I didn’t know any of the genius ways to save money and travel longer.

What’s kept me traveling for so many years is not great riches (I still eat street food, take local transportation, and travel cheap), but lots of frequent flier miles and loyalty points.

You probably know about frequent traveler programs — but what you might not know is that by using their system against them, it’s possible to collect hundreds of thousands of miles, fly first class and stay in amazing hotel suites…without ever stepping foot on an airplane or in a hotel. You can do it all from the comfort of your couch.

I know that it’s possible because I do it all the time, and I’d like to show you exactly how you can do it too.

And I want to show you can get them too – regardless of how often you travel now.

Introducing: The Ultimate Guide to
Travel Hacking

A Powerful Set of Time-Tested Advice that Really Works — Including the Actual Step-by-Step Advice to Help You Start Travel Hacking and Get Your First Free Flight.

The biggest reason people say they can’t travel more is money. They don’t have enough of it. Well, I don’t either, so I remove money from the equation by using the system to collect points to travel for free.

You can use the loyalty program offers to collect points and miles, without ever leaving the comfort of your home or spending extra money, and then, when you’re ready to take your big trip — redeem those points and travel for free. The world is awash in miles and if you know a few important tips, secret tips, and strategies, you’ll be able to get anywhere you want for as long as you want.

The tricks in the book are the exact ones I use to travel the world — so I know they work.

I’ve been a travel hacker for many years, and in those years I’ve accumulated millions of miles without having to travel every day or spend millions of dollars.

While I share a lot of travel hacking tips on my blog, I don’t share everything. I save the best tips for my book, and have put together everything you need to know to really get going. You won’t find this advice on my website – it’s only in the book. I actually use these tips myself to help me travel around the world, without spending a ton of cash.

You could just pay a ton of money for a dream vacation, but, fortunately, there’s a better way. Don’t shell out cash when you could learn the system that will allow you to take you, your spouse, or family somewhere for free.

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.

In this book, I make it simple — turning the complex into step-by-step instructions to help you travel the world, for free.

5 People Like You Used This Book to Travel More:

I was already dabbling in travel hacking but this book contained ideas that I had not thought about. Once I was able to employ them, I saw my frequent flier account increase dramatically. This book helped me get two free first class tickets to Australia and 10 nights in hotels Sydney and Melbourne for free! It will be my 40th birthday present. I honestly thought we would have to wait until we were retired to be able to afford a trip half way around the world, but by accumulating points we will travel there and stay for free. I honestly don’t think it gets any better than that.

I bought Matt’s book because I wanted a more in-depth guide to travel hacking than what you can find on the Internet. Matt’s a source I trust and following his tips I earned almost 100,000 miles within the first couple months. This book broke down the overwhelming world of travel hacking into an easy to follow guide that has me earning points and miles for everyday activities. Through Matt’s book, I learned that travelling isn’t just for people with big bank accounts. I’ve saved thousands of dollars so far, seen my credit score rise to over 800, and I get to take more trips over the next year than I have in the last ten without altering my normal spending habits

– Carrie

I always thought all the frequent-flyer miles stuff was all a big scam, but after reading your book and after getting a couple of credit cards, I see that is definitely not a scam at all. Matt puts everything in plain English and simple to follow steps. I’ve already gotten a few free hotel stays….something I never thought was possible before. With his tips, I’ve also have earned enough miles to fly to South America for a three month trip! I even got my wife hooked!

– Esteban

I’m preparing for an extended round-the-world backpacking trip. With about a year before I depart, I thought the book would be helpful to give some new insight into an alternative way to get tickets. I am currently sitting at 80,000 miles between two different cards, and am working on another 70,000 on two more and this is just in 3 months!

– A.T,. Oregon

Matt’s guide to travel hacking has unlocked a whole new way to travel. I read an interesting article on the web about travel hacking so I searched Google to learn more. What I found was very complicated with it’s own slang and abbreviations and I was about to move on when I stumbled on to Matt’s eBook. The book was and eye opener and explained the concept and language of travel hacking in an easy to read and understand way. Since buying his eBook six months ago, I have accumulated nearly 300,000 points/miles. I’m on to my next round and repeating the steps for my wife!

Travel hacking may seem complicated, it may seem perplexing, and it may seem too good to be true, but
it’s not. This system may change and it may not last forever, but while it exists, saying no to it
and avoiding earning even one point is saying no to free travel. It’s turning down that family
vacation or first class honeymoon you’ve always wanted.

This book will get you there and teach you how to keep getting anywhere.

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.

I purchased Nomadic Matt’s “The Ultimate Guide to Travel Hacking” to help ease the financial struggles of a trip around the world. I started with my first credit card on April 16th, 2014, and by mid-August, only four short months later, I had accumulated 308,682 miles/ rewards for a variety of different airlines and hotels! The guide served as the perfect template to get started and honestly, if you don’t buy this book, you’re saying no to free money.

Frequently Asked Questions

1) 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.

2) I’m already an avid travel hacker. 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.

3) 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.

4) 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 you want.

5) The book seems expensive, and I’m not sure if spending $37 is worth it.

This book is full of information and bonuses that make it worth the price. Most people are able to earn enough miles for a free flight in under 3 months. And I guarantee that if you don’t earn enough miles for a free flight within 6 months, I will refund your purchase — no questions asked.

At least one free flight, guaranteed, in 6 months, and the tactics to continue traveling all over the world — for free. Easily worth the $37 dollars a hundred times over.

6) Will you really call me?

If that’s what it takes, yes!
