Let’s take a look at some interesting travel industry stories on the web this week:
- This man earned 185,000 miles by renting 37 cars over 2 days. It’s an extreme story in earning miles, but it only cost him about $1000, which is a real bargain.
Two weeks before my trip, Avis Funchal called me. A man explained that there had been an error in the system, and that 18 bookings had been created in my name. I told him that there must indeed be an error, because it’s supposed to be 37. After typing a bit at his computer, he told me that this was nonsense, and that he would combine all the rentals into one. I explained about the promotion and that I would really appreciate 37 individual rentals. He seemed to understand, but ended the conversation by saying “you will pay for this”, so it was unclear if he was onboard with it or not.
