• What Is The Best Search Engine For Booking With Points?

    Posted by Constance on October 4, 2023 at 1:09 pm

    Hi everyone! Newbie here, and I’m looking to book roundtrip flights from NYC to Barcelona (1 person).

    Mid/end of March for a Thu-Mon weekend.

    I found some options in the range 50-60k points + 50$ (economy) — with France and United.

    Which are the best search engines for booking with points?

    Should I go ahead and transfer points when I find a good deal, or is there a way to get a hold on the reservation?

    PS: I have Chase UR points, Delta SkyMiles, and a few (~10k) AA miles and Bilt points.

    Thanks in advance!

    You might want to try seat.aero, although it’s a paid service

    I was able to get a flight for my mom mid March from JFK to BCN connecting through Amsterdam on KLM through Flying Blue for 11,250 and $82.50 in fees and taxes. Not seeing it that low now, but I do see for 15,000 with Air France.

    If you’re flexible with dates/cities you should also check out the JFK-MAD route on Iberia. I haven’t checked the availability for the time frame you’re talking about, but sometimes you can get lucky and get a business class seat for 34k!

    Has anyone traveled with LEVEL airlines? I was looking into Iberia, and it seems they’re offering LEVEL no-stop flights from JFK to BCN…

    Not a lot of reviews online

    Check Iberia! They have awesome points prices to Spain and you can transfer to Iberia from Chase or Amex
