Hi, my name is Kendrick. I am your go-to person for Canadian travel hacking!
It all started back in September 2014, when I had just returned from a one week road trip to Utah with my girlfriend, Karen.
Upon returning to Vancouver, I told my friend Tom, how much I had saved on my trip. Having taken a budget airline, my round trip flight from Bellingham to Las Vegas totalled to a mere $200!
I never forgot what he said next: “Traveling is awesome. You should travel more.” Then he continued casually “I just came back from Asia. My flight round trip was only $90” finished Tom, with a smug look on his face.
I was dumbfounded! How is he doing this?
He then explained the concept of travel hacking to me, and my world changed…
