Biography

Matt McLean is an Australian-born Canadian and spent 5 years exploring the world in search of the coolest jobs he could find. With ample time to travel the world, Matt had the flexibility to take cheap flights whenever possible or take buses and alternatve transport to suit his budget. But now after settling into a normal 9-5 “career”, a notoriously cheap traveler has to learn how to maximize the value of their spending and their time and so Matt found the solution in points and miles. Matt has lived and worked all over the world and is a leading authority on points and miles in Canada.

Matt runs A Whistle & A Light, as well as the Canadian Flight Deals & Travel Hacking Facebook group with over 1000 members and counting. Previously, Matt worked with Chris Guillebeau and Stephanie Zito for the Travel Hacking Cartel developing content for their premium membership site on points and miles, and now works with companies, charities and individuals consulting on financial planning for maximum savings and return on investment when it comes to travel.
