Sep 11, 2018

Some of you may remember Kevin from Episode 32 where Kevin shared his story about paying off $87,000 in student loans in just 2.5 years. I’ve invited him back on the show to talk about one of my passions, traveling! My word for 2018 was "adventure" and I was determined (for the first time ever) to use all of my vacation days! A big part of how I made that happen was through financially savvy travel hacking.

 

Disclaimer: I would not recommend travel hacking for anyone that is bad with credit cards, struggling with controlling spending, and/or doesn’t have a great credit score.

 

Otherwise I hope you all enjoy this fun and informational episode!

 

What you’ll learn:

 

  • An update on Kevin’s journey
  • What travel hacking is
  • Why Kevin got into travel hacking
  • The basics of travel hacking
  • How travel hacking can affect your credit score
  • Where to start as a beginner
  • How to manage multiple accounts
  • Kevin’s favorite side hustle apps
