Monday, February 11, 5pm EST: Fundamentals of Free Travel for Freelancers with Points and Miles
There has been a lot of talk in travel news in recent years about airlines cutting costs and taking away even the most basic amenities–including the value in their frequent flyer programs. But it’s actually become easier than ever to fly for free, thanks to another player in the points and miles market (credit card companies like Chase).
In this webinar, we walk through a step-by-step plan to ensuring that your travel and spending actually result in free flights rather than points that never seem to do anything for you.
Summer is prime travel time for leisure travelers, but increasingly press trips, travel industry conferences, and individual sponsored excursions are taking place during these peak travel months, so we’re going to spend the next four weeks looking at the pre-, during, and post- aspects of press trips so you can get the most of any sponsored travel you have coming up this summer or are planning down the line.
Getting on a sponsored trip is the holy grail of travel writing, right? Living a life in which you effortlessly hop from one free trip to another, spending your days enjoying haute cuisine and your nights in the fluffy king bed of your complimentary suite? Here we discuss the basic tenets of free travel as a travel writer, from ethics to minimum barrier of entry to the different types of trips, and their various pros and cons.
In this webinar, we dive head first into how exactly to plan your own individual sponsored trips that fits your interests, travel preferences, and schedule.
Here we look at where to find these trips and best practices for applying. I pull real press trips, read between the lines, and break down exactly what you would do in each situation of your application.
Don’t be late! All the free replays start right on time, and the system isn’t able to accept late attendees.
