About Me

Travel Blog + Travel Agency = Travel Better, Travel Smarter, Save Money

I created 'The Family Travel Guy' to share my travel experiences and perspective and am just your average guy who works a full-time job as an engineer and is always on the look out for the latest in travel deals using points, miles and the latest promotions and offers available.  I look forward to sharing my experiences, travels and journeys and hope you can benefit from it taken from my perspective and my family's perspective.  

I'll focus on topics relating to all things travel including timeshares, travel destinations, hotel reviews, airlines/hotel rewards programs, credit cards, personal finance, and the latest offers that can save you money on your next vacation.

My goal is to share my experience to help people travel better, travel smarter and save money to leverage the best deals available.

I am also a Virtuoso Travel Advisor, which you can read more about here and on my website at Virtuoso. You can contact me with any travel request and I can help you find what you're looking for by searching the multitude of suppliers out there that reserve access only for professional travel advisors.  Please feel free to reach out to me and I'd be more than happy to assist you in any way that I can. 

And lastly, if you have any suggestions for future posts or topics you'd like to read about, please feel free to reach out to me.
