Reward Travel Lessons
You might be wondering why this itinerary has such a high cash value for 2 economy flights. That’s because this member booked 4 one-way flights.
Airlines typically price one-way flights higher than round trip flights. The good news is that you are not required to book a round trip with the same airline. So if you have a mix of points with various programs, sometimes it makes sense to book one-ways.
They did not have enough points to book 2 round trip flights to Bali on the same airline. They did, however, have enough points to book 2 separate itineraries: 2 outbound and 2 return one-way flights for 2 travelers.
LAX > DPS
70,000 points + $11.20
(35,000 points + $5.60 per passenger)
DPS > LAX
80,000 points + $76.66
(40,000 points + $38.33 per passenger)
Traveling together is always important. Thanks to their diverse reward portfolio, we were able to keep the 2 travelers on the same flights! Here’s another example when we recommended booking one-way flights.
