Back by Popular Demand: Travel Hacking 101 with Jerad Larkin

Hello, fellow travel enthusiasts and real estate professionals! It's Jerad Larkin here, your trusted Account Executive with Chicago Title. I'm beyond excited to bring back one of our most requested classes - Travel Hacking 101!



For those who know me, you're aware that I'm not just about closing transactions and providing top-notch title insurance services. I'm also passionate about sharing valuable knowledge and resources that can enhance our lives, both professionally and personally. That's why I've delved into the world of travel hacking, a realm that has significantly opened up the globe for me, allowing me to explore new destinations without the hefty price tag.



In our recent session, which I'm thrilled to share with you in the form of embedded videos below, we covered the A to Z of travel hacking. This isn't just about earning points and miles; it's about strategically opening and closing credit cards, understanding the value of different points, and accessing those coveted VIP airport lounges that make travel a breeze.



Here's a sneak peek of what we covered in the class:

  • The Process: We demystified the entire process of how to smartly open and close credit cards to maximize your travel rewards. It's not as daunting as it sounds, I promise!

  • Choosing the Right Cards: Depending on whether you're eyeing a luxury flight, a cozy hotel stay, or just some handy cashback, I shared insights on the best credit cards that align with your travel aspirations.

  • Lounge Access: Yes, you can bid farewell to crowded airport gates and enjoy the tranquility of VIP lounges. I'll show you how.

  • Value of Points: Not all points are created equal. We dove into which programs offer the most bang for your buck, ensuring your efforts are well-directed.

  • Personal Tips and Strategies: Having been a travel hacker since 2016, I've gathered a treasure trove of tips and strategies that I was eager to share. These nuggets of wisdom can save you time, money, and hassle.



Travel hacking is more than just a hobby; it's a way to leverage the credit card points system to unlock almost free travel opportunities. Whether it's flying first class without breaking the bank or staying in luxurious hotels at a fraction of the cost, the possibilities are endless.



I've been navigating the "points game" for over seven years now, and the journey has been nothing short of exhilarating. From breathtaking sunsets in exotic locations to spontaneous city breaks, travel hacking has made all this possible without straining my wallet.


I invite you to dive into the videos below to get a comprehensive understanding of how you can start your own travel hacking adventure. Whether you're a seasoned traveler looking to up your game or a newbie curious about the world of points and miles, there's something in it for everyone.



As always, my goal is not just to assist you in your real estate endeavors but to add value to your life in multifaceted ways. Travel hacking has been a game-changer for me, and I'm thrilled to pass on this knowledge to you.


Happy hacking, and here's to many more adventures on the horizon!


Warm regards,
