Helping families travel more
by using
travel rewards

My name is Lyn Mettler.

I’m a longtime travel journalist who never could afford to take my family to all the amazing destinations I wrote about. But then I discovered the power of travel rewards… I crafted a simple system that transformed my family’s ability to travel. Since 2015, my family of 4 has been able to travel and fly for free an astounding six times every year. And the best part? This system has already helped hundreds of other families in doing the same.

I’d love to show your family how you can travel just like this and create more memories than you could ever have imagined.

As someone who’s been in your shoes, unsure where to start, making many mistakes and overwhelmed by all the available options, I’d love to show you how simple it can be when you have the right process in play.

It’s my mission to help families...

Discover the life-changing joys of travel by reducing the burden of cost, opening up the world, so your kids and grandkids can discover other cultures, see beautiful places and become future travelers themselves.

I created the Families Fly Free and the Meet the Mouse memberships to not only teach families my simple process, but provide them with industry-leading support from a team of experts, the latest travel information to help you save and a community of others with the same goals, creating a family-like atmosphere.
