2018 is right around the corner which means it’s time to start planning next year’s adventures. Are you eyeing a trip to the Maldives in an overwater villa, or heading to Norway to check out the Northern Lights? No matter where you end up, there are a few things to keep in mind — especially when it comes to your budget.
Lucky for you, our very own TPG will be appearing on NBC’s The Today Show Friday morning (December 29) at 9:00am ET to share his best tips, tricks and hacks for saving money while traveling in the new year. While we all know that points and miles are a great way to fly for free and score free nights at hotels, there are plenty of other ways to save big. Make sure to tune in and find out what you need to know before booking your next vacation:
- How to best use Google Flights to find cheap airfare
- How to redeem your miles for the most value, including redemptions worth more than 6 cents per point
- Tricks for accessing the cheapest fares on an airline’s website
- How to find award availability — even when it doesn’t seem to be there
In the meantime, check out the great tips TPG dropped on The Today Show last year.
