I’m fortunate to work with some really neat people at Book Your Award. We do our best for clients and never charge unless we’re able to secure an award that meets agreed-upon parameters.
Still, there are some things we can’t do. My two favorite examples I’ve shared before:
- I was once approached for six first class award seats to Australia over Christmas and New Years (no they didn’t have enough points to pay the extra miles price from United). I couldn’t do that, but I offered to split the party onto two flights and get them all to their destination in business class the same day. The response? “See? I knew these miles were worthless!”
- Another time a New York family asked for an Israel trip. To maximize their vacation time they wanted to leave after work on Friday. And since they wanted ‘Israel’ to start right away, they would only fly El Al. There are many things I can do, but causing El Al to fly New York – Tel Aviv on the Sabbath is not one of those things.
This is a new favorite, a request received yesterday that Becky worked on.
At Book Your Award we’ll get you there. The rest is up to you.
