The Program:

Business travel can be draining, even with status on airlines and at hotels. However, those status perks sure make it much more bearable. You think you understand how to maximize your options, but when you talk to colleagues you realize you’re not aware of and using all the valuable perks you could.

If only you could tap the knowledge of someone who really understands what’s available that would make business travel easier.

We heard you! And have invited someone who understands what we need. Ramsey Qubein is a professional international travel journalist, whose dad, Nido, has spoken for decades around the world. Ramsey knows our lifestyle and needs.

  • how to compare credit card benefits to decide which one would yield the best results for you
