Getting the Most Rewards from Locums Travel

Working locum tenens can be an expansive and rewarding career opportunity, but it also an great opportunity to maximize your travel rewards. For many, the chance to explore new places is one of the most valuable parts of the locums experience. Floyd Lee Locums covers all transportation and housing expenses, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t gain additional benefit from your travels.

Consider these tips for taking full advantage of rewards programs when looking for your next assignment.

Let those “frequent flyer” miles add up.

Provide your frequent traveler information for your preferred airline or hotel and earn rewards for your travel while we cover the expense of any airfare or transportation. Use the extra points for your personal travel or let them add up to help cover your next vacation. Many programs also provide additional services like free upgrades and amenities to make your trip more convenient and comfortable. Ask us about the best programs available with airlines on routes you’ll frequently be traveling.

Maximize rewards and simplify expenses with a rewards credit card.

Consider applying for a rewards credit card you only use for expenses connected to your locums assignments, like food, gas, personal shopping, and parking. You’ll have one bill itemized with all assignment related expenses – which is sure to help around tax time, and you can reap the additional benefits of points that can be redeemed for later personal travel, gift cards, or statement credits. Pay your balance in full every month to avoid paying interest fees while building your credit history. Not sure which one is right for you?

Remind your consultant of your preferences.

Many programs are free to join and offer free upgrades and additional amenities like skipping the checkin line.

Take advantage of extra cash back offers.
