Musings on miles, points, and travel from members of the Saverocity network

Episode 98 – Faroe Islands, Paris hotels, Air France awards, and more with Jordan from Windbag Miles

Episode Description

Happy New Year everyone! Jordan from Windbag Miles joins us to ring in the New Year with our destination of the week, the Faroe Islands, which aren’t where Trevor thinks they are and are beautiful despite some questionable practices. 

In our miles and points segment we chat about hotels in Paris and Air France’s new dynamic award pricing and how to find value it. We close out with a forward looking Buy and Sell. 

In the Gold Patreon only Final Boarding Call, I examine some of the award space to the Faroe Islands and share a new (albeit small) benefit we want to offer our patrons. Interested in listening to the segment by becoming a supporter? Find out more on our Patreon page!
