Charlotta Göransson is just about to book her first trip to Madrid. She’s going there for a conference, and hopefully something else.
“I hope we have time to see the Prado Museum and do a little shopping,” she says.
As a sales and marketing manager for a biomedical company, she travels a lot – at least once or twice a month. Most of her customers are based abroad.

What’s your favorite holiday destination?
“The US. Everyone loves New York, but I like San Diego – for the weather. And Washington, DC. It’s a very walkable city, and you can walk to the White House. Chicago is another favorite vacation city of mine. It’s like New York, but not as busy.”
What do you use your EuroBonus points for?
“I travel so much for work, and it’s difficult to take my two kids out of school, so I use my points for gift cards instead of flights. I once used points for a few nights in a hotel.”
What do you get with the gift cards?
“A lot of Polarn O. Pyret winter clothes for the kids. And now that my son is a little older and has more expensive tastes for things like computer games, I get a gift card from CDON, and then he can get exactly what he wants.”
