Sorry I’m new to this haha haven’t heard of OMAAT or VFTW

I try to use the value the travel bloggers post but sometimes I just want a points paid vacation to minimize out of pocket costs

Right now the Bonvoy conversion sucks! 60k point rooms are going for 85k. I guess they caught on that travelers are trying to use up their points before they expire

Expire?

When you get a rental car, what do you do to make sure you don’t get taken advantage of for some bogus issue/scratch that’s already on the car? Take pic/video before, tell the checkout person of any issues (although this can be hard especially if at a smaller airport & you get the keys in the airport and there’s no gate when you leave), buy the rental insurance? If you have a card that covers rental cars (CSR, Amex Hilton) do you decline rental insurance and use the card benefits?

I’m going to continue to take precautions but not quarantine. Am I being selfish?
