Money savings tricks of industry professionals – No or cheaper hotel, flight and admission costs
There are things that you only know when working in certain industries. Liberated.blog reveals them for you!
I have already described in another article, how to save a lot of money on flights, especially as a perpetual traveler, but the following tips are also useful for “normal people”.
Grab super bargains with special programs
There are programs for people who work in the tourism industry and want to personally get an idea of their products. In concrete terms, these can be free or very cheap hotel stays. But cruise trips, air travel, safaris, rental cars, insurances, airport parking and some leisure activities such as musicals, zoos, parks and concerts are also available. Even luxury hotels offer, in the case of under-occupancy of their rooms, some mega-cheap offers.
Here, however, the term “tourism industry” is a very broad range of interpretations. Basically, a personal travel blog can already open the doors for you. A bit of creativity is of course required to qualify for it. Since these special programs are of course not intended for the general public, as they would surely be stopped soon, I do not want to reveal them here publicly. In a personal consultation, however, I can tell you how you can use them, too.
Save money as a journalist
But not only professionals in the tourism industry can benefit from perks. Journalists can save a lot in many places as well. And it doesn’t even matter for which department you write. I became aware of this fact when I was skiing once with my aunt. Although she is certainly not a sports journalist, she was free to enter the ski slope. The operator of the slope probably reasoned: “Maybe she writes a positive review in a regional publication or on the Internet.”
For journalism, there is no fixed definition, too. You may have a travel blog or work for some mainstream fake news outlet. It theoretically doesn’t matter. All you have to do is getting a recognized press card from the industry associations. With the right press card, trade fairs, product presentations, shareholder meetings, congresses, press conferences and major political as well as sporting events may open the gates for you. On the following German websites, you can inform yourself about the requirements and maybe get an ID (maybe your country has similar associations):
Once you have a national ID card, then it is a small step to get an international press card:
Of course, you can always design your own press ID, but the cards of recognized organizations have a better reputation.
Generally speaking, journalists can easily get more personal freedom since more goodwill and understanding can be expected for the press. While the reporter does not have diplomatic status, better treatment by private and government institutions is not guaranteed but may be possible due to the influence of the media and the importance of press freedom. The same applies to tourists.
Here on the Liberated.blog you can find out how you might enjoy the benefits of residence addresses without being a permanent resident of any country while living tax-free. Or you may want to have a personal consultation.
