Welcome to Trip Astute



“Chance favors the prepared mind.”

– Louis Pasteur

Trip Astute is a video blog (a.k.a., vlog) helping travelers learn the tricks to maximize their experience. The videos are short and simple, but full of information. We feature videos on earning and using points, gear reviews, and general tips to make you a more prepared and informed traveler!

There are a ton of fantastic travel blogs and online resources. Our goal is to summarize the information in a way that helps you save time and make the most of the vast knowledge available. We realize that time is often a luxury, so our videos are intended to be easily consumable and hopefully valuable for your upcoming trips.

We believe that traveling is like gaining an education. It’s an experience that not only enhances your awareness and knowledge, but is also something that can never be taken away from you. It’s this love and appreciation for travel that drives us to create content to help you to maximize your experience. By learning how to travel cheaply (or often free), as well as having the right gear, you can more effectively and confidently see and experience the world.

Travel Safe. Travel Smart.
