Did anyone hear a hotel bell? We’re back! This week, season two of Travel Genius kicks off with more tips, tricks, and hacks than any episode that’s come before. Co-hosts Nikki Ekstein and Mark Ellwood catch up on all the miles they logged since you last tuned in—and there were many. We’re talking travel disasters turned into golden opportunities, a little-known travel app that transformed our summer trips, and the surprising destinations that stole our hearts. (Hint: Mark fell hard for the “Gateway City.”)

In the hot seat is ABC News star Rebecca Jarvis, also known as the whip-smart host of the hit podcasts “The Dropout” and “No Limits.” She has secret uses for everything from makeup freebies to airport yoga rooms, strategically pivots when trips go wrong, and dishes on a little-known service she uses to get cheap business class tickets. (Yep, you read that right.) 

Of course, a new season of Travel Genius means that tip line is live and open for business. If you had a genius travel moment this summer, share it with Nikki and Mark on Twitter, Instagram, or via email—or better yet, leave them a voicemail (646) 324-3490 and we might just play your ding-worthy discoveries on an upcoming episode.
