What does it take to create an extended trip using points and miles? Kendyl, from @KendylTravels, spent most of 2021 answering that when she created a month-long trip to Europe for “free” (or close to it!).
The concept was simple: earn enough points and miles with her husband to go on an extended trip through Europe for as little out-of-pocket cost as possible. Kendyl planned this trip for about a year and used half a million accumulated points and miles for their airfare and hotels.
A few months ago, Kendyl and her husband left on their free flight to Rome and spent the next 32 days traveling through seven countries. She and her husband stayed in 5-star hotels, utilizing award status and card perks, all while living on a $100 a day ($50 each) budget for food and entertainment.

About our speaker
Kendyl Grender (@kendyltravels) grew up in a family that considered travel “for rich people.” Until she studied abroad in 2013, she had no idea how small her world literally was. Making just $34,000 a year out of graduate school, she made a commitment to see as much of the world as possible. She was broke and had no idea how she was going to do it. Since then she’s become a pretty savvy budget travel hacker, traveling to 21 countries and 32 US states with her husband, Aspen, for less than $22,000 over the past 5 years.
Kendyl started Life-Half-Full.com and @KendylTravels to gain some fulfillment from her life by sharing her love of budget travel hacking with the world. She helps people travel more and better through budget travel hacking strategies everyday travelers can easily implement into their busy lives.
