Welcome to JarvisMarcos.com, a thorough and extensive database of my travel reviews.

I fly over 100,000 miles per year in First and Business class cabins and review every new product that I try. Similarly, I review almost every luxury hotel and airport lounge that I set foot in

I book the majority of my travel using sales, promotions and a variety of other tricks - often leveraging the power of hotel points and airline miles. If I use a special technique of any kind to book a travel experience, I'll mention it in the review.

This means that hopefully you'll have all the tools you need to book your own amazing trips too!

REVIEW – Tryp Barcelona Airport Hotel

Unfortunately, this is quite possibly the best airport hotel option in Barcelona but honestly if another one or two stars fell off the sign at the front, I don't think anybody would raise an eyebrow...

TRIP REPORT – D.O.M. and Dom with my Dad. AKA Sao Paulo Seventieth Silliness 

Ever since I first got involved in the world of miles and points I've done whatever I could do get my friends and family involved too. It's all well and good travelling everywhere in First Class but as with all of life's great experiences, travel is a pursuit best shared. There's something truly wonderful about being able to go on these rarified, extravagant adventures with other people, especially if those people thought they'd never live to see the day that they set foot in the pointy end of a plane.

REVIEW: A Trip to Islay House with Stratajet

When one of my friends casually mentioned in the pub that his older brother was the CEO of a private jet company, I knew this was an opportunity too good to pass up...

READER MAIL : Using Miles to get to Australia a.k.a. “Help, British Airways are sh*t!”

This email popped into my inbox this week and I thought I'd answer it publicly since it's the type of question that I get asked a lot. Hopefully it give you some insight into my thought processes and the flexibility required to get long haul premium cabin flights booked for as little as possible.

SECOND REVIEW – Etihad : First Class Apartments – Abu Dhabi AUH to London LHR (A380)

After an amazing multi course meal complete with vintage champagne and cocktails in the First Class lounge, we were ready to make the most of the bed on this flight. In a way, it seemed like a waste having such an amazing product and only using it to sleep... but on the other hand it was nearly 3am, we had experienced apartments before and I was really hoping to get a decent sleep before heading straight to the office a few hours later 😱

REVIEW – Qantas : First Class – London LHR to Dubai (A380)

Qantas has one of my favourite First Class products in the world. I had been looking forward to stepping onto one of their A380s again for quite some time. Nothing beats that feeling of finally being welcomed aboard and taking your seat in a cabin you've been dreaming about for months on end.

REVIEW – Air Canada : Business Class – Vancouver to London LHR (B789)

The overall experience was absolutely one of the best that I've ever had in business class. I had no real expectations going into this and came away with a real fondness for AC. If this is the service standard that they are able to consistently deliver, they have to be one of the best airlines in North America.

REVIEW – Air Canada : Business Class – Los Angeles to Vancouver (A320)

The seat was large and comfortable and featured both power and entertainment. The crew were polite, friendly and efficient (if a little lacking in oenoligical knowledge). The food was plentiful, healthy and delicious with a decent selection of drinks to accompany it.   If BA Club Europe was anything like this I wouldn't hesitate to pay the premium every time I fly!
