What are the best ways to use travel miles and points

The best way to use these points is often to transfer them to airlines or hotels or use them in lieu of cash.

Let's dig a little deeper on other ways to use travel miles and points.

Airlines offer loyalty programs that allow members to redeem frequent flyer miles for award seats.

Airfare

Airlines also share agreements to allow passengers to fly on other airline flights and redeem miles with each other.

Hotels

Hotel reward programs are similar to airlines without the alliance part.

To use your points, search for hotel rooms through the website or app and select 'use points' or a similar function on the search tool.

The number of points needed per stay should be displayed in the search results.

Rental cars

You can use your points on rental cars. Each program has its own rules for earning and using points.
