Episode 3 : It’s All About the Plan
August 29, 2017 Michael Mason Trager

Welcome back to ZorkCast, the podcast that is all about helping you travel smarter, gamble smarter, and maximize your adventures. On today’s episode we are lightly touching on the topic of travel and trip planning. One of my favorite personal activities is planning trips. I just love looking at all of the different potential items and possibilities. Be it routings, airlines, air fare, hotels; I just enjoy it! I know a lot of people don’t enjoy it, but I think it’s rather fascinating and it’s also sort of a game to hunt for the best potential deals or being able to optimize your use of miles, points, and loyalty perks on a particular trip, which is a very big part of planning. If you are going to be using miles and points for a trip, you are going to have to do a lot more work than somebody who is just planning to purchase a trip. Keep listening for some pointers and great ideas on planning your trip successfully. Key Points From This Episode: • Doing the right amount of research. • Booking travel using loyalty or reward points. • Identifying a reasonable redemption of points. • The importance of the concept of positioning. • Keeping all your information together.
