Welcome! If you’re reading this, you’re probably wondering how “travel hacking” works, and how you can use it to travel the world for almost free.
In fact, this website, Prince of Travel, is all about helping Canadians achieve exactly this: see more of the world, often in business class or First Class, at a fraction of the cost.
To be honest, I’m not a fan of the term “travel hacking” at all, given the connotations of the term. The art of travelling on points – a description I greatly prefer – basically boils down to:
Earning as many rewards points as possible for as little cost as possible, typically by signing up for credit cards with high signup bonuses
Redeeming those points for as high a value as possible, typically by travelling in business class or First Class
Here’s the caveat: while the idea behind maximizing Miles & Points is simple, carrying it out requires some legwork and research on your part. Have a look around this website, starting with the Newbie’s Guide, the introductory article to everything there is to know about this wonderful game we play.
Feel free to have a look around the site so you can start learning the tricks of the trade and achieving your upcoming travel goals. Travelling on points is one of the most fruitful and enjoyable things you can do if you’d like to see more of the world but don’t want to pay full price.
