Hi I’m Lisette Austin. I’m an award travel coach. I’ve always loved to travel, but couldn’t always afford the international trips I craved. In 2012 I learned how to rack up millions of airline miles and hotel points using my regular household spending and travel credit card sign up bonuses. Learning how to “travel hack” has now saved me over $90K in travel costs and opened the door to amazing travel experiences.
Since 2013 I’ve been coaching others on how to do the same and start traveling more. In 2017 I launched my first online course, Jet Set 101: Becoming a Travel Hacker. I’m also the host of The Globetrotter Lounge podcast, interviewing inspiring women who have found creative ways to travel more. I love helping people make dream travel a reality.
Bonus Facts: I’m also a WordPress web designer (and was a freelance writer for years). I’m fluent in French, speak conversational Portuguese and get by with Spanish. Top of my bucket list is studying Flamenco dance in Spain (I’ve been a dancer since I could walk), living abroad for at least a year (in Portugal or Spain) and doing a 6 month around-the-world trip. For now, I live in the Seattle area with my photographer husband and teenage son.
