Travel Education Network Stuns 800+ Consumers at New York Times Travel Show: Miles are Worth Much More Than You Think

(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED STATES - February 9th, 2015 - SAVANNAH, Georgia — February 9, 2015 — With an audience of 800+ travel enthusiasts, Travel Education Network (TEN), took the 2015 NY Times Travel Show by storm. On Saturday January 24th their presentation, Using Points & Miles to Travel Like the 1%, delivered the message that points and miles can take you almost anywhere you can imagine. 

TEN co-founders Ari Charlestein and Howard Rappaport shared their experiences with award programs and how the best available award redemptions are not always the most obvious. Business class to Australia on Qantas using Alaska miles is possible for just 55,000 miles and $55 in taxes. Around-the-world in First Class with British Airways, Qantas and Japan Airlines using 140,000 US Airways miles and $250 cash — both are actual trips booked by Charlestein and Rappaport. 

The duo captivated the audience using their own and the audiences real world examples to drive home the message that points and miles aren’t worthless and that the best bang for your buck is with flexible transferrable points programs. American Express Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Starwood Preferred Guest points and Citi ThankYou points are the favorites of the TEN co-founders, “These points when transferred to partners are the best way to fly business class and first class around the world” said Rappaport.

“We [consumers] need to capitalize on the amazing offers presented by credit card companies and loyalty programs,” Rappaport continued “they’re throwing points at us, we just need to open our eyes and grab them!”

As a result of the success of the 2015 NY Times Travel Show the TEN team added live seminars in New York February 21st and 22nd along with Philadelphia February 28th and March 1st. A full schedule of all course offerings are available at

TEN has a team of experienced travelers and motivational speakers across the country leading their classes including their co-founders Charlestein and Rappaport. More information can be found at
