Travel hacking is just a fancy term that entails using existing systems to your advantage to get discounted and free airfare, hotels, car rentals, and other travel expenses. For beginners, there are six steps that you need to know to start travel hacking.
The most important (and most beneficial) step to travel hacking is researching credit cards. Every credit card will have its advantages, but there is no doubt that some are better than others.
Once you’ve researched and selected your first credit card, it’s time to apply. Before doing so, check your credit score to ensure your score is high enough to get approved for the card you selected.
Once you’ve gotten your credit card bonus and accumulated some points over the first 3-6 months, you can consider using your points and rewards! It depends on how big of a trip you want to plan.
