Despite many heading back to school and work, nearly 60 percent of Americans plan to travel for leisure this fall, with more than half planning to spend over $500 on fall activities.* Whether you’re going to Munich for Octoberfest, or just attending your football team’s opener, there are simple ways to ensure your experiences reward your wallet, too.

While the majority of travelers plan to use a rewards credit card for travel this fall, only 20 percent plan to redeem rewards to off-set booking costs. Using a credit card strategically can help cover future expenses and help travelers experience their favorite fall activities.

Global travel expert Lee Abbamonte – former Wall Street banker and the youngest American to visit every country in the world as well as the North and South poles – is available to discuss:

  • Balancing places to “splurge vs. save” when researching and booking to achieve the travel lifestyle you desire
  • Implementing the right credit card strategy to maximize points earned on fall activities, travel and everyday spending
  • Layering airline, hotel, banking and credit card rewards programs together to earn even more
  • Taking advantage of programs and opportunities offered by your bank to make the most of your travel
  • Planning a trip around popular fall activities such as sporting events, including football openers and baseball playoffs, or festivals
  • Personal anecdotes from his most recent trips to destinations such as Costa Rica, and past fall trips like Octoberfest
