Tickets now available for The Milelion’s Hotel Hacks workshop

Learn the ins and outs of hotel programs, hotel points, and getting your dream vacation for less.

Milelion workshops are a great way to meet up with fellow miles enthusiasts and learn about travel hacking in a small, interactive group setting. We’ve run a few of these already on Power Award Searching, Credit Card Rewards and Frequent Flyer Programs, and it’s always an amazing time.

From our recent Miles for Beginners session at SMU. Note the enraptured audience

I’ve had a lot of requests to do a session on hotels, so after a few weekends of good, old fashioned slide work I’m proud to announce our latest workshop…

Hotel Hacking

There’s no shortage of ways to book hotels, but do you know how to score better stays for less?

Whether it’s a weekend staycation, a last-minute getaway or a once in a lifetime luxury resort, come learn about the range of tools you have at your disposal to upsize your stay without downsizing your wallet.

In this session, you’ll learn about:

  • Hotel loyalty programs- should you be loyal to a chain, or an OTA?
  • How to earn status faster though matches, challenges and credit cards
  • Ways of saving big on hotels by buying the right hotel points
  • The best ways of using your hotel points
  • Special hotel rates and programs that can help you save big
  • Opaque booking channels, distressed inventory, auto-rebooking OTAs and other great ways of snagging your hotel stay for less

Tickets are now available at $35 for early birds and $45 for regular tickets. Early bird pricing is available until midnight on 27 July (Friday), so don’t wait too long! Remember, you can pay for Peatix tickets via Apple Pay if you surf the site on your mobile Safari browser.

A note for those who attended the session on Hotel Hacks at the Milelion’s Masterclass in April: I’ve built this workshop off the materials showcased during that session, updating where necessary and adding a few new sections that I thought were interesting. However, you may find some of the content repetitive if you’ve already attended that talk.

Other events

Do remember that we still have two more events upcoming in July.

Look forward to seeing you there!
