Upgraded Points Series: An Extensive Guide to Travel Resources [2017]

Upgraded Points Travel Resource Series

Ever wondered which travel resources are worth your time?

“Should I get the app? Visit the website? Maybe buy the book??”  

How about quirky resources that you never even knew existed? For example, an app that searches for free wifi wherever you are, one that tells you which public toilets you can use, or even one that displays all available flights to get you the F out of your current situation within 24 hours?

If so, welcome! You’ve come to the right place. Upgraded Points has done the research so you don’t have to – and we’re presenting it in a series of posts grouped into specific topics to make this all a bit easier to digest.

  1. Flight Search, Comparison, & Monitoring
  2. Accommodations
  3. Organizing Your Trip
  4. At the Airport
  5. Activity Planning & Exploring
  6. Dining & Drinks
