Frequent Traveler University is a seminar-filled weekend with some of the best experts in the business divulging the secrets of the frequent traveler lifestyle. From loyalty program insider access to manufactured spending and travel trends, there is something for everyone. New for 2019, the Stewarts!
Seminar Topics and Speakers
Mike Graziano will cover Manufactured spending techniques and what comes next in perhaps the most dynamic aspect of this hobby. Matthew Klint is hosting a number of sessions teaching some of his insider tips and tricks for booking awards that landed him in the New York Times. Jason Steele will speak about “Advanced Southwest” in time for a big year for the carrier and rental car awards.
After years of listening to Joe Cortez on the Saverocity podcast, it will be good to meet him in person. He speaks about travel insurance and, underrated credit cards and how to approach them. Joining him on credit card sessions are two experts I have yet to meet, Yansong Wang and Xiang Fan who will disclose advanced strategies and the right balance for your wallet.
Carly and I will share a session, Family Traveling Like the Pros. We have been flying internationally with Lucy (our five-year-old daughter) since she was eight weeks old. By 11 months, she was riding more than 16 hours from Dallas to Hong Kong with us, she had elite status before her second birthday. If you’re a traveling parent or know one, that session will be worth your time.
Carly will separately cover Traveling the World as a Female while I will later compare the differences between the Big Three: Delta vs. United vs. American. I will also moderate the closing Q&A session with all the speakers and raffle drawing.
