Welcome Studio Brussel travel fans!


A quick post to welcome my new blog readers after my ‘last-minute’ talk at Sound of Sam on Studio Brussel (Belgian radio station).  Returned from an extended weekend trip to the Portugese Algarve this afternoon.  At Brussels Airport, I got a call from Studio Brussel asking me if I could talk a bit about my extensive traveling and provide some travel advice to their listeners.  Didn’t have much time to prepare myself, two hours later I was live on the air.  A lot of people are now asking for a list of practical tips and tricks to book their next cheap luxury vacation.  Unfortunately, there’s no easy one click solution to cheap luxury hotels and flights.  You’ll need to invest some time to understand the ‘system’ to get the best deals for your specific needs.  If it would take no effort, everyone would apply the ‘tricks’ and hotels and airlines would immediately anticipate and make it much harder to book their flights and rooms at low prices.  In the next couple of weeks, I’ll post some more practical guidance on how to book flights and hotels.  For those who can’t wait, here are some links to site which can help you book great deals:

  1. Bart,

    You ruined my evening and night! I had abig work to prepare and 4 hours later I am wondering how to start travelling again.

    I am not a professional, but travel always free on Iberia thank to my Amex. But I think there is a lot more to do if I see what you are doing.

    One of the problems I have is that when travelling on rewards, I do not get the rewards. If I bought the tickets I would get Iberai upgrades. On points not. How do you solve this?

    Thanks

  2. Do you know about hotwire.com and priceline.com? that’s where we get our deals!
