About Us

Based in sunny Los Angeles, Trip Astute was founded by Ernest Shahbazian in 2016. The goal was to help travelers become more knowledgeable and “astute”, while still adhering to guiding principles. The site and channel is focused on sharing ways to make travel easier, affordable, and more enjoyable.

Traveling can be stressful and expensive. We’re looking for ways to help you maximize your experience through travel tips, points and miles, destination reviews, and innovative gear!
