Empowering wanderlust travelers to travel more and travel better.

Hands-down one of the top questions we’re regularly asked both online and in “real” life is how we can afford to travel so much as a family of four.

The secret is … we work hard to travel! But not just at our jobs, we work hard to make travel possible for our family within the limits of our income and expenses.

A lot goes into enabling us to travel as much as we do, but it’s our goal to travel as frequently and extensively as possible with our kids, so we think it’s worth it.

Let’s be serious, saving $100 on a flight for one person is great, but saving hundreds on each family member is often the difference between going and not going for many families. That savings can be used towards your budget for your hotel, food, etc. It really makes a difference!

Our biggest “secret”, which isn’t really much of a secret since we’ve talked about it quite a bit, is that one of the primary ways we make travel possible for our family is by searching for and booking cheap flights.

Believe it or not, flying is less expensive now than it’s been in decades. In fact, according to a study led by economists from Compass Lexecon, inflation-adjusted prices for flying are near the lowest they’ve ever been in aviation history!

That’s exciting!

The problem is, that doesn’t necessarily mean that every individual and family can just book flights whenever they want. Before learning how to find real cheap flights, we couldn’t!

The good news is, we’ve figured out ways to make travel more of a possibility for us and we want to share our tips and techniques with you!  We’re talking about real tips and techniques that just about anyone can use if they’re willing to spend some extra time to save substantial money on both domestic and international flights.


Do you need to know anything about Google Flights prior to taking this course?

No! This course was created with a spectrum of students in mind--from someone that knows nothing about Google Flights to someone that casually uses it, but doesn't feel very confident in his/her ability to successfully find cheap flights and use many of its features.

What is the refund policy?

At this time we do not offer refunds.

We strongly suggest reviewing all available information on courses prior to enrollment to determine if a course is right for you.

What is included in this course?

This course includes:
  • 5-part video series 
  • Guided demonstration of how we find cheap roundtrip & 1-way flights for both international and domestic trips

  • Detailed examples of how to use the worksheets we provide to help make your cheap flight search more streamlined

You'll also receive access to the following downloads:

Can I share my access to a course with friends and family?

While we understand partners/spouses taking a course together, we do limit the sharing of course access to anything beyond that. 

If you are a part of a larger group of people (more than 4 individuals) that would like to take the course together, please email us at to discuss whether or not a discounted rate can be made available.

Should we discover that someone enrolled in one of our courses is sharing their access with others without permission, or distributing or duplicating our content in any way, access will be immediately removed without warning or refund and appropriate actions may be taken to recover lost enrollment fees. 

Please be honest and understand that we work hard to create the content we publish. Without the support of our wonderful students, we would not be able to continue to do so. :)

Interested in earning extra money by becoming a Jet Lag Nation Affiliate?

We have an affiliate program for those that like what Jet Lag Nation is about and wish to promote our courses to others, earning a commission for every successful sign up made through unique affiliate links!

All you have to do, is sign up for any of our courses (including free ones), then access your unique affiliate link through your dashboard and share it with friends and family. It's that simple!

There is no minimum amount before payout occurs, meaning even if you only have 1 commission due to you, we won't make you wait until you hit a certain amount first--we know how frustrating that can be!

Payments are dispersed during the first week of the next month AFTER 30 days have passed since payment cleared.

Basically, payments go out as follows:

January commissions would be paid the 1st week of March. February commissions would be paid the 1st week of April.
March commissions would be paid the 1st week of May.
April commissions would be paid the 1st week of June.
May commissions would be paid the 1st week of July.
June commissions would be paid the 1st week of August.
July commissions would be paid the 1st week of September
August commissions would be paid the 1st week of October
September commissions would be paid the 1st week of November.
October commissions would be paid the 1st week of December.
November commissions would be paid the 1st week of January.
December commissions would be paid the 1st week of February.

Commission is only paid on enrollment payments that clear without issue (that means no stop-payments, payment reversals, etc.).

Enrollment MUST be made through your unique affiliate link for them to count towards your commission. We cannot retroactively or manually add commissions as our system automatically tracks sales through each unique link.

This is to ensure that everyone receives commissions on legitimate sales only.

Commission earning is completely performance based. We cannot guarantee that affiliates will earn commission. It is solely dependent on the performance of each affiliate's ability to promote and acquire successful enrollments through their unique affiliate link. 

We wish you luck!

How long do I have after enrollment to complete a course?

Students are granted access to a specific course upon enrollment for 1 month!

This allows each student to complete a chosen course at his/her own pace.

We recommend viewing all course materials and downloading all downloadable files prior to access ending as students will no longer be able to access materials after that.

Does this course focus on searches for domestic or international flights?

We discuss searching for both domestic and international flights in this course! The majority of tips and techniques we share can be applied to searches for either.

Is this course geared towards individuals that don't already travel?

This course provides an in-depth guide on how to search for cheap flights using Google Flights in particular, however, many of the techniques and tips we discuss can be applied to other flight search websites.

Our goal for this course is to provide tips, techniques and instruction for those that would like to improve their travel skills (especially their abilities to make travel more cost-effective). We recommend reading through the course description to determine whether or not you feel you may benefit from this course.

We'd like to think that there's a lot to learn when it comes to the topic of travel, which is constantly evolving and changing!

This course may not be needed for someone that successfully searches for and finds flights priced at hundreds less than the average flight on a regular basis using Google Flights.
