In my last financial travel tip about traveling in style for free, I talked about scoring a free upgrade to a first class flight – just by asking for it.
But that methodology is pretty hit-and-miss when it comes to the art and science of flying for free (or almost free). For that, you need frequent flyer miles, and lots of them.
The good news is you don’t need to fly (and often don’t even need to spend any extra money) to accumulate miles that will get you on that next flight. If you really apply yourself to the accumulation of frequent flyer miles (and there are lots of ways to do it that are actually quite easy), you might find yourself on a long-haul business class flight, enjoying luxury in the sky – all for less than the price of an economy ticket.

And here’s how you can learn to do the same for yourself:
