We love hearing from our readers. Whether it is in the comments section of our articles, across our various social media channels or even in person — in an airport lounge or at our reader events.

Along with plenty of questions about maximising your travel, we know you have had some amazing travel experiences (as well as some days you’d rather forget!), and we want to share them to help others, too. Especially just following the busy holiday travel season, we know some of you have experienced some of the ups and downs of travelling and using points and miles — and we want to hear about your stories.

These can be anything from as simple as a packing hack you’ve developed to the dream, round-the-world first class redemption on points and miles. Mistake stories could equally be as simple as forgetting to check-in online for a flight before you arrived at the airport or a small mistake causing a complete trip to fall apart.

You can share as much or as little of your experience as you would like. Selected stories will be shared on The Points Guy UK. We all make mistakes when we travel, too, and TPG UK staff have already started sharing ours.

If you’d like to share your personal travel stories to be published on our site, we would love to hear them. Simply email your story (a paragraph of around 100 words is perfect) to tips@thepointsguy.co.uk and put ‘Reader Success Story’ or ‘Reader Mistake Story’ in the subject line.

Due to the volume of submissions, we can’t respond to each story individually, but we’ll be in touch if yours is selected. And don’t worry — we will only publish your first name.
