Frequent Miler on the Air

Mar 21, 2020

Greg and Nick discuss:

-Is this a good time to book future travel? We obviously don't know when "safe" will be, but maybe this is a good time to book for the future?

-Is it ethical to take advantage of the current no change fee policies?


-Should we cancel or downgrade annual fee credit cards? We can't travel now, we don't know when we'll be able to travel again. When is it time to cut the cord on expensive credit cards with benefits we can't use?

-How should people handle the travel industry's customer service collapse? Many people are reporting huge wait times, finger pointing (e.g. "call the airline" no "call the OTA"), wrong information.
