Advisor - Chris Hutchins


I'm a travel hacker, points optimizer, street food junkie, husband/father and thrill seeker. My goal: never cross an ocean in coach and never pay full price for business.

Home airports

SFO unless OAK/SJC are way cheaper :)

Our travel style

Of course I enjoy a nice hotel and lie-flat seat, but my favorite part of traveling is finding as many unique local experiences I can. I love to start a trip in a food market and tour a new city with a local. Whatever a place is known for, be it scuba diving, rock climbing or caviar, I want to do it.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Formula One race day in Austin.

  • Luxury island hopping in Greece for our first trip without a child.

  • Eating our way across Japan over the winter holidays. 

  • Relaxation with a dose of shark diving in Bora Bora.

Dreaming of:

  • Cape Verde + West Africa.

  • Norway + Northern Lights.

  • Transsiberian Railroad.

  • Monaco for the Grand Prix.

One thing we can't travel without...

I always carry a $100 bill, because even if I lost everything else, I'd be fine with $100.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I spent a night in a Cambodian prison.

  2. I was a driver in Obama's motorcade.

  3. I've been attacked by a hippopotamus.
