Help for Frequent Fliers

If you belong to multiple frequent flier and frequent stay programs, you know how difficult and time-consuming it can be to keep track of your miles/points and how even more difficult it can be to actually use them. There is a new website that purports to help you track and use your frequent mile/stay points: www.usingmiles.com.

According to their website, UsingMiles.com helps you:

  1. “Automatically “manage” dozens of loyalty programs allowing you to view them all from one convenient place”
  2. “Quickly search for award seats or free hotel nights using the miles you have already earned, without going to multiple sites”
  3. “Instantly book your award seat or hotel room online from multiple airlines and hotels – without having to spend hours on the phone”
  4. “Simultaneously show you the lowest cash fares from hundreds of sites across the Internet to make sure you are getting the most out of your hard earned miles”

I haven’t actually used this website but I would love to hear from anyone who has.

About Mike

I have a passion for adventure travel that began in 1989 with my first overseas trip: climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Having never been to a foreign country, Africa felt like being on another planet; I knew then and there I was hooked on travel. Since that time, I have visited all seven continents and dozens of countries. I’m using the experience I’ve gained in planning my own trips to help my clients plan their own adventures through my adventure travel company (http://www.offtrailtravel.com). After working as a firefighter for the US Forest Service in California and Wyoming for three years, I moved to Durango, Colorado where I graduated from Fort Lewis College with a degree in accounting. After graduation I moved to the Denver area where I worked in a Big Eight accounting firm to obtain my CPA license; soon afterward I began a career as an auditor with the Colorado Department of Education. My background in accounting helped me develop detailed-oriented skills that have been extremely useful in researching and planning my own travel over the years. I think this provides a unique asset to my clients in putting together their adventure travel plans. I currently live in Golden, Colorado with my wife Valerie, who shares my love of adventure travel. I’m an active member of the Colorado Mountain Club where I lead trips for club members and have taught ski lessons in their Telemark Ski School. I enjoy skiing, mountain hiking, trail running, photography, and astronomy. I take any opportunity I can get to explore new places, whether it’s on the other side of the world or just down the road.
