Talks

A Hacker's Toolkit for Global Travel (Or, How to Travel Anywhere on Airline Miles)

Traveling the world can be done with little or no money if the traveler knows how to properly hack various systems for obtaining airline miles. Using miles, Philip and Marjorie have traveled to Europe, Asia, and Oceania, and, using a combination of miles and money, traveled to the Middle East. In this discussion, they hope to show how you too can "hack" the travel system.
