Oh the holidays!!!! Not only the time of joy, Christmas lights, (a new favourite) mulled wine and whatever else may cometh as the days draw closer to jolly old Christmas…. BUT.. Also… That time of the year when it becomes so unbearably cold here in Canada that the sudden urge to book last minute and random flights to.. I don’t know.. Let’s say.. Miami!? It seems to happen much more frequently and aggressively than normal!! AND… It’s those days, like today where I look outside my window to a grey, cold sky knowing that only a couple hours and something minutes away is a beach, a margarita and an entire city waiting for me to just frolic it up lol!!! But it’s also SUPER annoying because I have a curse where I always book things like this last minute and end up paying wrecked premiums on flights that were half the price only some weeks before!!
This year, I feel slightly more inclined than ever to pursue my travel urges and just literally go with it.. Care to know why!?!?.. Well… I guess if you’ve read this far you clearly are going to find out haha!! This year, hesitation finds itself dissolving into thin air as I learn more and more about all the perks of being an American Express Cardmember!!! First and foremost definitely has to be the new Fixed Points Travel Program – This new program literally has FIXED point redemption rates so I do not have to worry about flying at peak times – WHICH basically means, I won’t have to worry about when I book!! I JUST GOTTA BOOK!!! AND if I am feeling fancy, I can even book Business class with this program which really means there are no borders to how free I can feel when I fly!!
Then the tricky part!!! Finding the perfect place to rest my head come nightfall and planning SO LAST MINUTE!! I am so picky when it comes to hotels when I travel. They need to be chic, clean, pose an opportunity for a good instagram backdrop for a big ol’ chunk of my content and be somewhat economical!! AND THEN the annoying thing is trying to book reso’s at my favorite hot spots in Miami especially during a busy time like Art Basel!!
That all being said, I definitely think it’s time for me to stop the yammering and look into booking considering I only actually got a couple weeks left!! Thankfully with this new program I can even book flights with a fixed point redemption rate over the holidays, so no worrying about fare hikes! Luckily for me, I get to do this with reliability, consistency and ease of use this time around and you can too!! Visit [this link] to learn more about the Fixed Points Travel program for yourself!! Happy and safe travelling this holiday season!!! Xo
