Kyle Olsen

Points and Miles Reporter
TPG since 2022
Kyle has spent more than a decade helping others maximize points and miles. He has written over 250 articles and stories for The Points Guy and knows the ins and outs of United MileagePlus, American Airlines AAdvantage, Marriott Bonvoy, World of Hyatt and Hilton Honors as a top-tier status holder of each program.

Since starting his own travel agency at 13 years old, Kyle has helped others make informed decisions about points and miles, credit cards and elite status. An expert on the ins and outs of the aviation, cruise, rental car and hotel industries, he formed six- and seven-figure business partnerships with over 20 hotels during the coronavirus pandemic in an effort to provide housing to 450 displaced students while supporting the business needs of various hotels.

Kyle uses his many languages — Spanish, French, Indonesian and Filipino — during his frequent overseas travels. He has also held roles at the U.S. House of Representatives and Lucerne Business, a branch of the Swiss government and graduated cum laude from American University. Kyle's stories are regularly quoted by major travel blogs, MSN and the San Francisco Chronicle, among other outlets.
