No worries. I’m still here, I’ve been traveling and the internet wasn’t always reliable. Here’s what’s coming up next on the blog.

On Monday, Jeff and I returned from a two week trip to Europe. Our three week trip to Budapest, Prague, Catania and the Sicily area in Italy, and London was quickly changed while traveling.

Thanks to miles and points we were able to make quick decisions and create a new travel itinerary swapping out Italy for Scotland without paying a fortune.

We were having a fantastic time in the Scottish Highlands driving the North Coast 500 (NC500) and are looking forward to sharing all those posts and photos.

But then Saturday happened, our return flight home was canceled and we had to quickly change plans again.

Only this time, we weren’t so lucky. We had to change our flight from Inverness to London and instead of being able to use points we had to pay cash.

Chase just happened to be doing system maintenance at that time. This meant we couldn’t transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards Points to British Airways Avios. Instead, we had to pay almost $600. 🙁

Yeah, not so happy about that expense. Especially since the plane had plenty of empty seats in coach. Hoping to appeal to British Airways and see if they can credit us the amount.

What’s Coming Up Next

Given that many of us aren’t traveling for a few months here’s what’s coming up next. 

Normally, I publish a weekly travel deals posts. I’m going to hold off publishing those posts for a few months until things return to normal. 

Get ready to dig in and start reading. I have a backlog of posts that have been sitting in my drafts. Plus all the posts that haven’t quite made it to my drafts. 

I plan on catching up on those trips. Lots of vicarious travel coming soon. 

Feel free to keep sending in reader questions. I think I’ve answered all of them. But I’ll go through my inbox again to make sure I haven’t missed any.

Be sure and subscribe to our YouTube channel. I’m hoping to finish editing a bunch of videos and post them to our channel.

Here’s to staying safe, earning lots of miles and points, and planning for future travel in late summer or fall.

Chase Sapphire Preferred

The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for beginning travel hackers. It is the first card you should get to start traveling for free because the welcome offer is 60,000 points (after spending $4,000 in the first three months).
 
My favorite perks about this card are earning 2X points on travel and dining, no foreign transaction fees, and transferring points to 13 airline and hotel partners like Hyatt, United, and Southwest.
