Life is Short, Travel Now | Jared Kamrowski | TEDxFargo

Over half of Americans don’t use their vacation days. Many of us are missing out on the experiences, memories, and moments that define us. This talk provides practical travel tips and makes the case that there should be no such thing as a once in a lifetime trip. Jared Kamrowski is the founder of Thrifty Traveler, the leading source for flight deals, cheap travel tips, and maximizing travel rewards.

Jared honed his travel skills by traveling over 100 nights a year while working as a Federal bank examiner. He left his job in 2017 and now runs Thrifty Traveler full time flying over 100,000 miles per year. You can catch him flying the fanciest first class cabins as well as budget airlines, paying only pennies on the dollar.

Jared believes there is no such thing as a “once in a lifetime trip”. He’s a firm believer that travel should be cheap and accessible for all. Jared is a Fargo native, attended the University of North Dakota, and is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). He currently resides with his wife Erica in Minneapolis, MN. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
