This is Shanghai, not Istanbul. But you get the point.

In mid-May, I came across a ridiculous flight deal that is sending me and 9 friends to Milan — and then continuing on to Tokyo a few weeks later — for under $150 this October (ironically, I paid the highest amount out of all 10 of us). Since discovering that flight, I’ve devoted an insane amount of time to learning how the airline industry works, with a specific focus on answering this question:

How can I fly for free (or next-to-free) for the rest of my life?

Here’s how it’s going to work:

  1. The first 20 people requesting access are admitted into my beta. I expect it to fill up within the first 30–60 minutes, but I’ll leave it open for 24 hours just in case.
  2. You’ll invest 4 minutes of your time, and get access to flights like these (departing from Toronto):
  • Always wanted to explore the USA? Round-trips to San Francisco or Austin, TX for $120.
  • Care for something more adventurous? Try Europe. Zurich, Madrid, and Stockholm for $75 (the French have expensive tastes — you’ll need to fork out $10 more for Paris)
  • Need some heat this winter? Visit spicy Rio de Janeiro, still under $100.
  • And if this last one doesn’t get you excited, just stay home altogether. An almost unheard-of direct flight from Toronto-Istanbul, $50.

3. That’s it! You’re now a master in what most people only dream of: flying for (almost) free.


Don’t live in Toronto? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. Here’s a look at what you can expect from San Francisco and New York City.

I want you to have access to flights from Toronto to San Francisco, Madrid, Paris, Rio, Istanbul, or somewhere else that your heart desires for under $100. Take 5 seconds here to join the beta and make the world your oyster.
