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!

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 😱

Jarvis Marcos - Qatar Airways Dreamliner

REVIEW – Qatar Airways : Business Class – Doha to Stockholm (B787)

Overall another great flight, if anything this was even better than my first QR J experience at the beginning of the trip. The service was extremely attentive, every dish I tasted was superb and every item of F&B which I ordered was in stock whenever I ordered. More than anything, flying QR J imbues you with a feeling of freedom. You can do what you want, when you want and are never beholden to the whims and desires of other pax or the cabin crew. Leave your seat when you want, eat when you want, sleep when you want. How many airlines can claim likewise?

REVIEW – Qatar Airways : First Class – Doha to Bangkok (A380)

I handed over our boarding passes and sure enough the light on the scanner flashed red and let out its 'magic beep'. "Is that a good beep?", I asked. "Only if you like being upgraded to First Class, sir."

REVIEW – Qatar : Business Class – Stockholm to Doha (B787)

As I stepped on board my jaw nearly hit the floor. This did not look like any cabin I had ever seen before. It looked more like the shuttle used by the higher orders of an alien society, commuting between their galactic empires:
