Rick Ingersoll to present the art of travel hacking at the Capital City Club.
March 31, 2011 (Raleigh, NC) – Rick Ingersoll, better known as The Frugal Travel Guy for his popular blog, will share his tips and techniques for traveling frugally — and often completely free – at the Capital City Club in downtown Raleigh on Wednesday, April 6, from noon-1 p.m.
Ingersoll, the author of The Frugal Travel Guy Handbook, is an internationally recognized expert at amassing frequent flier miles, getting airline and hotel vouchers, and a host of other methods that have allow him and his wife to travel the globe for free, or nearly free, for years.
A retired mortgage banker, Ingersoll began “travel hacking” as a hobby. The hobby quickly grew into a blog – frugaltravelguy.blogspot.com – that averages over 5000 views a day by readers throughout the United States and around the world.
Ingersoll started the blog and speaking engagements to further his mission: to teach others how to do what he does so that they, too, can enjoy traveling for the rest of their lives. He’s especially interested in reaching people who think they can’t afford to travel.
“Sure they can,” he says emphatically. “With my techniques, folks are always amazed at how much traveling they can do for next to no money.” He pointed out that a regular reader of his blog recently reported booking a $980 (Euro) hotel room in Paris for only $75, thanks to what he had learned from “The Frugal Travel Guy.”
Chix In Business and Blueplate PR are hosting Ingersoll’s April 6th presentation. The event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited so space reservations should be made soon to: firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no charge for attendance although the Capital City Club is providing a buffet lunch in the dining room for $15 per person.
Lunch will be served at noon with the presentation and Q&A to follow. Business attire is required.
The Capital City Club is located at 411 Fayetteville Street, 21st floor, in downtown Raleigh.
