During a recent overnight flight connection through Toronto, I was able to stay and experience the Sheraton Gateway Hotel at the Toronto International Airport. This hotel is located conveniently right beside Terminal 3 of the airport making it an ideal location to stay overnight before an early morning flight.

For those who travel internationally, it’s wise to travel with some local currency of the country you’re visiting. It’s always good to have cash to pay for taxi rides, hotel tips and street food as most of these places don’t accept credit cards.
The most common and straightforward way to obtaining the local currency is by withdrawing at a foreign ATM. But, using your debit card abroad for ATM withdrawals can be an expensive proposition. Most Canadian banks charge between $3 and $5 for using your debit card in a foreign ATM. Ouch!
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to withdraw cash from an ATM without annoying fees?
There are countless reward programs available to help Canadians achieve their travel dreams. In the previous section, I demonstrated how to redeem your Aeroplan miles for flights. As for using points for hotel stays, Marriott Bonvoy is one of the best hotel reward programs available for Canadians because points are flexible and can be redeemed in multiple ways.
So in this last article of the series, I will be discussing tips and strategies to use when redeeming Marriott Bonvoy points.
It’s quite easy today to earn tons of travel reward points and miles with credit cards, online shopping portals (like the Aeroplan eStore) and online surveys.

So, it’s always a good idea to earn and burn — to earn points and then redeem them before they expire or there’s a program devaluation.
So, are there any tips and tricks to redeeming those points and miles?
