COVID-19 has disrupted the way we think about travel. Traditional hotels are quickly adapting to give customers confidence in their product, but millions of Americans are turning to different lodging options for their next trip. If you’re in this situation, be sure to register for today’s TPG Talks webinar as we discuss some great alternatives to a traditional property — including short-term home and apartment rentals along with timeshare resellers.

We’ll cover the traditional companies in these spaces — including Airbnb and vacation resorts affiliated with larger brands — but we’ll also highlight new players that are disrupting the markets, all to equip you with strategies to save money and spread out with additional space on your next trip.

To cap off the episode, we’ll be joined by Mike Kennedy, Cofounder and CEO of KOALA, an online marketplace that connects travelers to timeshare owners. Mike will take us through how KOALA offers a new way for travelers to take an easy vacation.

Date: Today (Friday August 14)

Time: Noon Eastern Time / 9 a.m. Pacific Time

SPONSORED: With states reopening, enjoying a meal from a restaurant no longer just means curbside pickup.

And when you do spend on dining, you should use a credit card that will maximize your rewards and potentially even score special discounts. Thanks to temporary card bonuses and changes due to coronavirus, you may even be able to score a meal at your favorite restaurant for free. 

These are the best credit cards for dining out, taking out, and ordering in to maximize every meal purchase.
