How to Travel the World for Free: Part 4

Free Travel Hacking

Traveling doesn’t have to be a burden on your budget. You don’t need a pile of money or a trust fund to travel. In fact, nowadays there are many ways to cut corners on traveling cheaply. This mini-series will show you how to travel for free. All you need is your passport to see the world.


Travel hacking is a relatively new term that was coined by some bloggers who found out that one could get free flights by applying for credit cards that offer points and miles. Yes, it’s really that simple. Free travel hacking.


Most airlines have miles rewards programs and these programs are often linked to banks and credit cards. Often, these credit card companies will offer an obscene amount of miles for receiving their credit card. All you have to do is use the credit card once, and the miles are credited to your account. After that, you’re free to decide how long you keep that card.

This may seem sketchy, but it’s a well documented practice in the travel blogging community. It’s especially popular amongst perpetual travelers and backpackers. Since we have already covered how to travel and notes y for food and accommodation, and  also how to stay with locals for free, this travel hacking strategy is just another tool in your arsenal of how to travel the world for free.


Remember, for all international travel, you’ll need to have a valid passport. If you need a passport within 24 hours or you just don’t feel like waiting the 4-6 weeks and dealing with the paperwork, contact Fastport Passport to help you secure your passport immediately and with professional agents to help you with any questions you may have.
