Last month, our family returned from an 8-night vacation in Canada where we hiked up majestic mountains, skipped rocks in gorgeous glacier fed lakes, experienced orcas in their element, and encountered six bears. This family trip had been in the works for almost an entire year. And when we started planning this vacation, our goal was simple: we wanted to travel hack as much of it as we possibly could. And that’s exactly what we did! In fact, on this trip, we travel hacked flights for all four of us, a five-night car rental, and even part of our accommodations.

Today I’m going to be sharing with you how we did it and the steps you can take to take your own dream vacation, whether you’re just getting started with travel hacking or you’ve been doing it for a while.

And in case you’re wondering, yes, we’re already planning our vacation for next summer! We’re already stages of researching the signup bonuses for different credit cards, deciding what credit card we want to sign up for, and where we’d love to go so that we can travel hack another big family vacation next year!
