How would you like to travel to your dream destination for free?
Let me share with you a little secret about how you can get round trip tickets for free!
Last December 2017, I went on an all-expense paid trip to Dubai, plus a professional fee for my speaking engagement. I was with my best friend, her mom, and her mom’s best friends. There were five of us. But that’s not the secret I’m talking about.
Here’s our photo at Dubai Desert Safari.
The five of us loved Dubai so much we wanted to stay longer. In our flight back from Dubai to Manila, our friend AS, who’s based in Dubai, told us that the flight was overbooked and the airline would need to bump off some passengers. The airline’s term is DB or “denied booking.”
Guess what? We were bumped off! And these were our exciting rewards:
- 5 round trip tickets to Dubai redeemable within one year
- The airline booked us in a fancy high-end hotel near the airport so we can rest before our flight the next day!
- Plus, they covered all our meals until our next flight — not just any meals but buffet meals.
So this year, November 2018, the five of us, plus Tita Peggy’s mother, went back to Dubai.
I did some research and I learned that airlines would usually overbook passengers. If all the passengers showed up, they would need to bump off some passengers and reward those passengers that were denied booking.
So that’s the secret. Fly during peak season, check if your airline is fully booked and if there’s a chance that you will be denied boarding. Then ask what are the perks.
Here are 3 lessons I’d like to point out from that experience.
Guess what?! Our wishful thinking was granted!
I wish you success and happiness!
P.S. Our FREE round trip tickets to Dubai were largely a factor of luck. We just got lucky! 🙂
When it comes to your most important goals for 2019, you can’t just wish you’d get lucky. There’s a proven blueprint on how you can achieve them. This is exactly what’s inside the Goal Setting Blueprint 2019.
