Airline Miles Tips:
- Never waste your airline miles again. Instead of collecting miles for random airlines throughout the world, have them sent to your favorite airline. How do you do this? When you’re flying with a random airline, check to see if they are apart of an airline alliance. If they are, view their partner list, and choose the airline that you fly with the most. When you’re checking into your flight, ask that your miles be distributed to your preferred airline by giving them your airline membership number for that preferred airline. This can only be done as you check in to your flight. Never after.
Money Travel Tips:
- Don’t waste ? on ATM fees. If you’re a U.S. Resident, open a free checking and savings account with Charles Schwab.Why they’re great: They don’t require a minimum balance. They reimburse you for every single ATM fee from around the world. Can be used at any ATM in the world.

If possible, don’t get your currency at a bank back home or at an airport money exchange. You’ll get better rates by using an ATM in the country that you’re traveling.
Ideally, find an ATM not at the airport. They are super easy to find… They can be found on the street, next to banks, at grocery stores, & of course, the airport.
