About Us

"Our intention was never to launch a website, our intention was to build a global brand for frequent flyers."

content + community + technology + social

InsideFlyer exists to bring all types of travelers together and to make it easier to find relevant travel advice and information within a friendly environment. At InsideFlyer, you can find "everything you ever wanted to know about frequent flyer miles, but were afraid to ask" - and if you can't find it, there is no need to be afraid to ask.

InsideFlyer was created by travelers, for travelers. Here you can discover and share your experiences related to travel and frequent flyer programs with business travelers, leisure travelers, infrequent flyers and road warriors alike. And if you are new to travel, the entire InsideFlyer community is here to get you on your feet. At InsideFlyer you will learn how to earn benefits, privileges and bonus opportunities you never knew existed, but are exactly what you are looking for.

InsideFlyer is a privately funded venture based in Colorado Springs, CO (affectionally—the House of Miles). We’re a small diverse group of experienced frequent flyer experts, travel community builders, technologists, and friends of the flyer who want to help you learn to be an expert traveler. We believe that learning about frequent flyer miles should be as fun as travel itself, so we're creating a new online experience to bring our vision to life — your life.

And InsideFlyer has quite the heritage. First founded by frequent flyer guru Randy Petersen in 1986, InsideFlyer founded the Freddie Awards in 1988, FlyerTalk in 1995, BoardingArea in 2008 and the precursor to the current version of InsideFlyer, Milepoint in 2011.
