One of my favorite methods to save money has always been travel hacking, and I’m certain you’ve seen me mention it before here and there.  At this point, you may be wondering – what the heck is travel hacking, anyway?

Travel hacking is the perfect method for getting you the dream trip you’ve been dreaming of with little to no effort at all.  

Through this method, you collect things like:

Worried about spending more than you can afford?  

Don’t be.

With travel hacking, it’s all about maximizing what you spend rather than increasing how much you spend.  You want to focus on gathering the most redeemable points per dollar spent, thereby “hacking” your everyday life and getting the most bang for your buck in your typical spending.

Traveling while raising kids

We all know that raising kids can be incredibly expensive – in the US the average cost to raise a child in a middle-class family is over $200,000 by adulthood!  

With so much money being dropped on the raising kids, it’s hard to find funds leftover in your budget for that dream family trip or anniversary trip with your partner.  

That being said, why not take some of the necessary expenses and maximize your rewards points systems so that you can earn yourself a cheaper and more luxurious trip?

Think about your day-to-day purchases and those everyday purchases you make.  Consider where you’re thinking of purchasing these items from and what rewards credit card you’ll be using before you make the leap.  

Think about how you can maximize your points per dollar – should you use a certain credit card or buy from a certain store?

Are any rewards card companies running any specials on points?  

Always consider every option before making your purchase – that way you can add up your rewards points for your trip even faster!

How are you travel hacking your next dream trip?  Let me know in the comments below!

*Just to note – when travel hacking I do tend to focus primarily on the American markets where I am based, but other countries do offer reward credit cards and hotel/airline programs as well.  Be certain to do your research before you commit and always maximize your spending!
