Skye Class

Staff Writer

Skye joined the AwardWallet team in 2019. After leaving his full-time job in 2014 to travel the world, he’s created his own website SkyeTravels.com to make traveling a reality for everyone, no matter their financial means. He’s a big fan of reward program for anyone with a credit card, and has used several of the programs himself.

Skye can most often be found working diligently in a cafe somewhere in the world. So far he’s been to 51 countries and counting. He travels the world in a van, never content to stay in the same place for long (unless it’s at the top of a mountain overlooking a beautiful sea).
