Tips

This is mostly a page for things that I have found to supremely help out traveling.

  • Car Rental
  • Virtuo
  • I discovered a company that will let you rent a car through an app and bluetooth and without personally talking to anyone. As of 2019 Feb, it's only available in UK, France and Belgium.

  • This means lower cost on overhead (no staff, no key handover, all forms are digital),
  • Faster check-in and check-out
  • 24/7 customer support (they replied within 5min)
  • The fleet of vehicles they have are luxury plus cars I rented a Mercedes A180 for about 48-58euros a day. For me it was great because the other automatic option from Hertz was 69euros for a Ford Focus..
  • Using the phone camera and app, you can do the damage report on check-in and check-out
  • Super painless to change booking

    Sign up to Virtuo, then use the code spupmde to get €30 credit off your first rental. Virtuo link

    Also you can drive as fast as you want in Belgium on the left lane in the highway :) </div>

  • CC
  • Chase Sapphire Reserve
  • Man this card is so amazing.
  • 3x pts on resturaunts and 3x on flights.
  • $300 travel credit (works on uber). this effectively makes the annual fee only $100
  • No international transaction fee
  • Using the Chase Ultimate reward pts is easy within their site, for reference its 68k pts to book a roundtrip to Japan, 60k for Amsterdam (they have some multiplier on pts for travel).
  • Priority Pass for airport lounges (free food, water)
    Heres the Pts Guy review of this card

    I found Visa way more widely acceptable than AMEX </div>
