    Is Travel Demand Going To Tank In The Fall? Is A New Low-Cost Airline To Europe Worth It?

    Is Travel Demand Going To Tank In The Fall? Is A New Low-Cost Airline To Europe Worth It?

    We cover a lot of ground today.  There are some signals out there that travel demand may be tanking in the fall.  Disney World prices are dropping this summer and Southwest recently offered a big fare sale for the fall.
    What's old is new again now that Norse Atlantic is reviving Norwegian Air's low-cost model with their airplanes.  Are they worth it or will the fees crush your wallet?
    Delta makes another odd decision about SkyClub access.
    JetBlue vs Frontier vs Spirit is still popcorn worthy.
    United is launching new Australia service which may be great for award flights.

    Is The New "Big" Marriott Credit Card Sign-Up Bonus Worth It?

    Is The New "Big" Marriott Credit Card Sign-Up Bonus Worth It?

    One of Marriott's credit cards has a new sign-up bonus that could be worth up to 250,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.  Richard and I are breaking down the offer and whether it's really worth it.
    I also end up giving Richard marital advice, though you'll have to wait until the 39-minute mark for that one.
    In between we also discuss strategies for how to COVID test abroad and Richard gives us an update on the Singapore Airlines flight he's been trying to cancel for over a month.

    That One Where Richard And I Both Catch COVID

    That One Where Richard And I Both Catch COVID

    After 2+ years of a pandemic, both Richard Kerr and I tested positive for COVID for the first time. You can hear it in my voice for sure.
    We're talking about how much trouble Richard had canceling some travel he had scheduled this week.
    Do you think Richard got enough value from his Virgin Atlantic cancellation or should he spend more time on the phone?
    Shoot us an e-mail (ed@pizzainmotion.com) or you can tweet me and Richard.
    We also discuss our impressions of the new Swan Reserve at Disney World.

    Tips and Tricks To Travel Like We Do

    Tips and Tricks To Travel Like We Do

    Summer Hull from TPG and Julian Kheel from CNN Underscored are back with us!  I'm constantly getting asked by listeners how we travel the way that we do.  We're lucky enough to have both Summer and Julian on the show this week to talk about some of the tricks we use to travel the way we do without breaking the bank.
    And, the best part of the episode may be Julian impersonating Richard in his absence.

I’ll try not to gush …

I’ve been listening to this podcast for about 3 years and I absolutely love it! The “bromance” between the two of you is just delightful! I love the depth of knowledge and insight you both bring to the point hacking community of topics. I especially love it when Summer is on with you as there are not many women/moms in this field and I find her shares very relevant.

Hill-yeah ,

A sign-up bonus above the rest

Every time I listen to Ed and Richard, I feel like I am sitting having a beer and just hanging out with them. I love the little humorous jabs they tease each other with, It has me at times literally laughing aloud. Even when there are people around, which is embarrassing. These guys don’t sugar coat rewards programs, cards, travel sale gimmicks or anything. I love and appreciate the real honesty in reviewing anything travel related and why it would be good or bad for the consumer. Men of the people!

My only complaint is that I have to wait a week to hear another episode.

Well done gentlemen, I’d give you 6 stars if I could. 🍻

Best points and miles weekly update podcast

I have been listening to this podcast for over two years. Really appreciate the weekly updates and insights for points, miles and travel hacks/tips in general. Looking forward to each Wednesday when the new episode is uploaded. Really like the interaction between Ed and Richard. The round table episodes with Julian and summer are always fun. Truly appreciate the family travel content now that I have two kids and we are hoping to travel again after they are both vaccinated. Thank you for talking me out of owning a RV!
