Frequently Asked Questions
Why couldn’t I do this myself?
The answer is, you could! Booking a flight using points is relatively simple. But the truth is, you will never know if you used more points (that’s more money) than you really had to. It also requires significant amounts of time and research to seek out and book the ideal flight. When you factor all of this in, it can amount to potentially huge losses of both your time and money. It takes experience to know where to look across different airlines, all of which have separate points programs. Our experienced agents know exactly where to begin looking for the best value flights based on your desired travel outcomes.
Can I make changes after booking?
Yes, we are able to make changes to your bookings made with points. Remember, points are like currency so there is no need to worry that you’re “locked in” because you booked with points. We only charge a small administration fee for any changes or cancellations you wish to make should your plans change. We can also arrange travel insurance for you so you can have complete peace of mind throughout your trip.
