Welcome to Modern Miles, your ultimate travel lifestyle resource. I’m Joe Morelli, the passionate traveler, veteran loyalty miles and points earner, and proud founder of this blog. Together with my beautiful family—my wife, Rachel, our energetic daughter, Maddie, and our adventurous son, JJ—we’re committed to inspiring, educating, and guiding you on your journey to seeing more of the world for less.
Several years ago, I discovered the world of travel rewards—frequent flyer miles, travel points, and loyalty programs. Since then, I’ve earned and redeemed millions of points, enabling my family and me to explore corners of the globe for mere fractions of what they would typically cost. It’s an engaging game, a hobby that turned into a passion, and now a mission to help others do the same.
Why Modern Miles
Modern Miles is more than just a blog. It’s a resource, a guide, and a community for fellow travel enthusiasts. We’ve created this platform to share our adventures and insights and teach you the nitty-gritty of maximizing your travel opportunities—just as we’ve learned to do.
We firmly believe that life is too short and the world too vast and beautiful not to be explored. We all deserve to turn dreams into reality and experience life to its fullest potential. Modern Miles is here to help make that happen.
What We Do
At Modern Miles, we dive into the complexities and opportunities of credit card, airline, hotel, and casino loyalty programs. We’re your go-to resource for understanding how to get the most out of every point and mile. Our goal? To empower you to travel more, spend less, and create lasting memories.
But we don’t stop there. We review hotels and airlines, test travel gear, and share insights on a wide range of travel topics. From the best family-friendly destinations to how to pack efficiently for a solo trip, we’ve got you covered.
Who We Are
We’re a family who loves to travel and explore. We thrive on new adventures, relish in discovering unfamiliar places, and cherish the long-lasting memories we create along the way—especially for our children.
My wife, Rachel, is the logistical genius behind our trips. She’s an expert at finding hidden gems and planning itineraries that cater to all our interests. Maddie, our 4-year-old, is our curious little wanderer, always ready for a new adventure. And JJ, our 2-year-old, is our fearless explorer, always up for anything.
We’re real people, with real experiences. And we believe our journey, insights, and expertise can benefit you in your quest to see more of the world.
