This blog was originally published in June 2016; it has since been updated to reflect the most accurate information.

Are you an experienced traveler? In all likelihood, that means you’re a frequent flyer who’s looking for easy options for getting from point A to Point B.

Fortunately, streamlining your travel is easy with these frequent-flyer tips:

Take advantage of frequent flyer points.

Did you know you can earn airline perks as you travel from one destination to the next?

Frequent flyers can utilize numerous airline loyalty programs designed to help you score lower ticket prices, first-class seating and other rewards.

Some of the top airline loyalty programs for frequent flyers include:

+ Delta SkyMiles

+ Southwest Rapid Rewards

+ JetBlue TrueBlue

It also is important to note that many airline loyalty programs don’t necessarily require you to fly all across the globe to earn points.

Instead, frequent flyers may be able to add points in a number of other ways.

One common misconception surrounding airline miles is that you need to fly frequently to earn them. That couldn’t be any further from the truth,” personal finance blog The Simple Dollar points out.”Most of the time, scoring a stash of frequent flier miles is as easy as signing up for a co-branded airline credit card, meeting the minimum spending requirement and earning a sign-up bonus.”

Some credit card companies that offer cards with air miles rewards include:

+ Capital One

+ Discover

+ Chase

Use travel apps.

Traveling for business in the modern world is easier than ever before thanks to innovative travel apps.

+ One of the best travel apps on the market today is TripIt, which enables you to keep your entire travel itinerary in one place. You can even allow other users to add events to your itinerary, which makes it perfect for executives with assistants.

+ For the frequent flyer, GateGuru also is likely to become an instant favorite. This app summarizes your flight itinerary into a simple interface, making it quick and easy to track your flight status and remain up to date.

After you have reached your destination city, finding the perfect place to grab a bite to eat can be difficult, especially if you’re new to the area.

Thankfully, Yelp is here to help, an urban guide that helps you find local restaurants, business services, and things to do based on your location.
