Tricks of the Trade reader testimonials

“British Airways – Avios article. Saved me almost €1,500 on flying from The Netherlands to Japan, much appreciated!” – Dieander

“The best card to use abroad this summer – Very handy article which has helped me understand the potential impact of additional transaction fees. I’ll be shopping around to look at different credit cards to use when on holiday rather than my UK debit card” – Ben

“I love the world travel roundups for providing genuinely fresh ideas for destinations and real useful information. Fantastic format. ” – Jamal
