Hello, my name is Jean-Maximilien Voisine and I am passionate about travel, aeronautics and points & miles in order to travel for free (or almost…!) all over the world, with my wife Audrey and our two children.
The first time I flew, I was 2 months old. My parents took me to travel all over Europe and then North America.
As a teenager, I thought that one day I would live on this side of the ocean, looking for the famous “American dream”. In the meantime, to travel for free in France, I was already using the few opportunities of loyalty programs.
Then, with Audrey, came the idea to move to Quebec, in Montreal, like many French people, in 2011.
And there, I was like a child in front of the Christmas tree: the canadian credit cards were opening the doors of free travels !
I felt like I was alone in taking advantage of this points and miles system: our new Canadian friends were obviously not well informed on the subject.
So much so that I organized their best credit card applications and travel arrangements myself.
In May 2015, at the same time as the birth of our first child, one of my friends introduced me to a journalist from the newspaper Les Affaires, looking for information on loyalty programs.
After an hour-long interview, she invited me to share my passion with as many people as possible by opening a blog.
While on parental leave, between diapers and bottles, I designed: Milesopedia.
The goal was clear: to build an “encyclopedia” of points & miles so that as many Canadians as possible could benefit from their reward points!
Milesopedia.com has become Canada’s most recognized platform for points, miles, credit cards and rewards programs.
