Travel is expensive, and people living on a budget trying to pay their bills and stay on an even financial keel often can’t afford a vacation. We all need some time off from the daily grind but finding the money to do so can be difficult.
Credit card companies like Capital One have recognized this market and advertise products that allow you to accumulate airline “miles” with each dollar you spend on their card. Using them is part of a process called “travel hacking,” which allows many people to afford a decent vacation.
That’s why in this episode of the podcast I talk with Lee Huffman, a personal finance writer who helps people get started on their journey to a better, and more affordable, travel experience.
