Research & Analysis

We’ll share valuable tips, including airline routes and rules, which hotel loyalty programs are worthwhile, how to book vacation packages, how to maximize credit card signup bonuses, and which destinations to visit. We’ll maximize your dollars, miles, and points.

We have two goals at the travel agency: to help you book memorable trips, and to lead guided group tours. We can book a trip for you, but perhaps you’ll book it yourself after reading a thorough analysis of options. If you already have airline miles and hotel points, we’ll help you decide which to use, and ensure you maximize those hard-earned miles and points.

Hotel loyalty programs often run promotions. Marriott or IHG might give you a free night after two paid stays. Hilton might give you 5000 points after your second paid stay. Regardless, if you’ll be doing paid stays, you should get rewarded from a hotel chain. Every stay should earn you something extra.

Some people take flights and don’t collect miles, because who knows if they’ll ever fly that airline again. I maintained a Virgin America point balance, but never flew with them. My miles transferred to Alaska Airlines when the two airlines merged, and I had extra miles to book an award ticket to Asia.

My advice: (1) start collecting now, and (2) join as many frequent flyer and hotel loyalty programs as possible. Spend on a credit card that earns airline miles or credit card points (like Chase Ultimate Rewards, American Express Membership Rewards, or Citi ThankYou Points – these points can be transferred to a host of airline partners). Every purchase should earn miles and points, and you’ll often have a card that gives bonus points in certain categories, like travel, dining, or entertainment.

Provide a destination, and we’ll help you get there. If you already know the logistics, but want advice about collecting miles and points, we’ll include that in the report. For a two-hour report, we’re offering a special price of $46 for new customers. Contact us today!
