the guide to travel hacking by nomadic matt

My name is Nomadic Matt and I’ve been traveling around the world since 2004. Growing up in Boston, I was never a big traveler. I didn’t take my first trip overseas until I was twenty-three. My first trip overseas was a tour to Costa Rica. It trip changed my life, opened my eyes up to the world, and made me hooked on travel. I wanted to do travel more and needed a way to do it on a budget.

What’s kept me traveling for over a decade is not rich parents, a trust fund, or winning the lottery but lots and lots of frequent flier miles and hotel points. These points and miles let me fly and stay where I want, when I want – for FREE! They help me realize my travel dreams on a tight budget.

People always tell me they wish they could travel more for less. I’m here to tell you you can.

You’ve probably heard of frequent traveler programs — but what you might not know is that by using the system against itself, it’s possible to collect hundreds of thousands of miles…without having to any extra or spend tens of thousands of dollars. All it costs is a few hours of your time. Whether it’s a first class ticket or a bunch of tickets for your family, travel hacking can be done from your home and get you on the road.

I know it’s possible because I do it everyday, and I’m going to show you exactly how you can do it too so you can take your fiancé on that dream honeymoon, your family to Europe, or yourself to your next bucket list destination!

Introducing: The Ultimate Guide to Travel Hacking

A Powerful Set of Time-Tested Advice that Really Works to Help You Travel the World for Free.

The biggest reason people don’t travel more is money. They don’t have enough of it. No one does (I don’t and I bet you don’t either) so I remove money from the equation. I never had a rich uncle or trust fund so I needed to figure out creative ways to fund my travels. Travel hacking is what can allow you to travel more often, longer, and for less.

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. I’ve flown first class to Hong Kong, London, and Paris, took my mom and sister to Europe, stayed in multiple hotel suites – just in the last few months!

You could pay for your dream vacation or you could use travel hacking – and for free! Don’t shell out money when you could learn the system that will allow you to take you, your spouse, or family somewhere 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!

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 is expensive. I’m not sure if it’s 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.

This book is more than a book – it’s a way to plan your travels to cut the cost of flights and accommodation and will pay for itself many times over. If you want to invest in never paying for flights again, the price of this book is cheap.
