Thrifty Traveler is a go-to resource for millions of travelers looking for the cheapest flights, easy-to-understand guides on using points and miles, and must-read coverage of daily travel and airline news. And it all started back in 2015.
After years of picking up every tip and trick in the book while traveling for his corporate day job, our founder and CEO Jared Kamrowski launched Thrifty Traveler to show others how they, too, could see the world on a tight budget. Just two short years later, he made this site his full-time job, determined to grow and help more travelers.
And that’s just what happened. Fast forward to the present day, what began as a passion project and one-man show has blossomed into a growing team of 10-plus Thrifty Travelers and counting.
We’ve leaned into the vision of the original Thrifty Traveler newsletter: Creating a one-stop shop for clear, concise travel guidance. Meanwhile, we’ve called on federal officials to crack down on airlines and urged travelers to watch their carbon footprint when flying – something we do ourselves.
But our mission remains unchanged: to show you that travel doesn’t have to be expensive. Through finding flight deals, using credit card points and airline miles, and smart money-saving strategies, almost anyone can get out and see the world. We’re here to help you travel more for less.
