Having traveled to 65 countries in the past 10 years, you could say I’ve learned a thing or two about travel. I’ve learned so much about the people and places I’ve visited, explored local cultures and tried my fair share of regional cuisines. And I’ve also learned how to travel easier, faster, better … and smarter, overall!
It’s true that travel can come with headaches and hassles. From weather-related issues that lead to flight delays and cancellations to long lines at security and lost baggage, you really do need to pack your patience before setting out on a trip.
But if you’re armed with tips and tricks, you can make your travels so much smoother. I partnered with SPGAmex to share some of my travel tips that help me make the most out of a business trip. Check out the video we shot below:
I’m a huge fan of the Starwood Preferred Guest card from American Express. As a cardmember, it entitles me to so many perks that make my travels more fun and more rewarding. I especially love that when you book four nights at an SPG property, you get the fifth night free. That’s a huge savings! Even better? You can redeem Starpoints for free nights with no blackout dates at over 1,200 of the world’s most desired hotels in nearly 100 countries.
If you don’t already have a Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express, you can earn 20,000 Welcome Bonus Starpoints after you charge $500 in purchases to your card in your first three months of card membership. See here for more details.
