How Do We Value Miles & Points?

We base our points valuations on a variety of factors, including our team's own award redemptions, researching award bookings, as well as program-dependent factors such as fuel surcharges, fees, ease-of-use, potential devaluations, and availability.

There is not an exact science for determining the value of points and each traveler will have their own best use. These valuations are to be used as a rough guideline of what kind of redemption value you can expect to get when you use your points.
