Welcome to The Higher Flyer!

Traveling is one of the best investments you can make. Life-changing experiences are everywhere in the world, awaiting those who dare venture there. I could go on and on about how special it is to see the world, but if you’re here on my website, you probably agree. The Higher Flyer is a different kind of travel blog though. For every memorable moment in an exciting new place, you unfortunately probably have a horror story from the plane or hotel too. There are so many annoying fees, complicated corporate policies, and inconvenient hassles every step of the way. Sometimes, it’s just easier to stay home instead. That’s not right, and fortunately, it doesn’t have to be, thanks to what I refer to as “higher flying.”

I started The Higher Flyer in August 2016 to teach readers how to fly higher, or elevate the quality of their travel experiences. For example, you could contort your body into a cramped seat in economy class for a transatlantic flight, or you could stretch out in a cushy first class suite, complete with a flat bed. There are definitely great discounts to be had if you stay at a motel on the outskirts of a foreign town, but you could also stay in a five-star hotel in the heart of a city. You don’t have to settle for lousy accommodations, and you shouldn’t!

But don’t premium cabin airfares routinely run at more than $10,000 round trip, if not more?

Wouldn’t a world renowned hotel cost hundreds or thousands of dollars per night?

Yes, they do, but with creative thinking, discipline, and a little bit of luck, you can fly like this…

Singapore Airlines Suites Class on board the Airbus A380

…for the price of this!

United Airlines Economy Class on board the Boeing 787 Dreamliner

You don’t have to be fabulously wealthy either. Granted, travel isn’t free, but if you know where to look, you can fly in premium cabins and sleep in five-star hotels at fractions of the original costs. There are so many opportunities for everyone to take advantage of, and my blog is dedicated to helping readers do just that and become, as I say:

Higher flyers.

Doesn’t that sound better than cattle class? If you’re intrigued and want to learn how you can improve your own travel, I invite you to keep reading.
