What is travel hacking? It sounds illegal. Some people think it’s about cheap travel. Others think it’s just about knowing how to pack your bag. Again, others think you can only get free trips by wasting your time in timeshare presentations. Sorry, you’re all wrong. Here’s my definition of travel hacking in 23 seconds:

Travel Hacking means to travel more and better with less money required.

The only real question is: Where would you go?

Is Travel Hacking Legal?

What I teach in my travel hacking course is perfectly legal – and the travel industry loves me for it. I’ve often been upgraded to business class (for free or for a very minimal fee), and I can’t remember the last time I’ve actually stayed in the room category I booked: hotels always upgrade me.

Is this about cheap travel?

I’m not (at all) about cheap travel. I usually enjoy staying in luxury properties around the world. You don’t need a lot of money to travel well. I’ve stayed in hostels before, and there’s no shame in that. But there is a time in life to enjoy the finer things. It’s up to you to decide when that time starts.

Do I have to watch timeshare presentations?

No. Forget about timeshares. I don’t own one and have met very few people who enjoy their timeshare ownership. Their sales tactics lure people in with “free” show tickets and other “perks”. But in exchange you have to spend your vacation time in a high pressured sales presentation of timeshare properties. My time is precious, and I don’t waste my time like that. I strongly recommend you don’t do either.

Isn’t travel “hacking” just practical advice on packing my bag?

Some people think that travel hacking is nothing more but to organize your bag a certain way. I’d be happy to share my packing tips with you, but that has nothing to do with real travel hacking. Travel hacking is to take advantage of certain memberships, promotions and tactics to leverage the travel industry to get what you want, in a way that is a win-win for everyone.
