Pre-requisites

Before you start this course you should:

  • Take the Travelling Sustainably course 
  • Have a good credit history (I don’t teach credit-building, but this is a very good article with a specific step-by-step strategy for working up to premium cards like the Amex Platinum or Chase Sapphire Reserve card from scratch)
  • Be willing to spend about an hour every week keeping track of your budget and your spending
  • Be aware that the techniques described in this course are geared towards those with access to apply for American credit cards (you generally have to be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident to do so). I have heard from other travel experts like Nomadic Matt that residents of other countries can adapt these techniques to their own credit card markets, but I do not have any experience with this.
