How We Book With Points
Airlines can make booking with points complicated. All the fine print, transfer times, logins, conditions and additional fees can make getting what you want a struggle – especially when you’re unfamiliar with the process.
We make it simple
The points experts at The Well Connected Traveller know exactly how to leverage your reward points balance to get you the best options and best upgrades so you can travel your way, all at a fraction of the regular cost.
Ready to redeem your travel rewards?
We’re trusted by a high profile network of business clientele to manage their huge volume of rewards. Let us manage your reward points to book your travel.
“Points on your Amex should be treated like cash.”
To book with points, we compare the value of frequent flyer tickets to paid tickets to ensure you are always selecting the most cost effective option. With our comprehensive knowledge, years of experience and VIP connections, we book your trip using your chosen points rewards system, combining benefits and seeking out opportunities you might not know exist.
We can even combine rewards from different programs to get you more value.
And we offer first class solutions by advising on;
- Aircraft type – travel on the newest fleets in the sky!
- Preferred seats
- Ideal route options
Whenever there are clever, less obvious ways to get you from A to B, our agents know how to find them.
