Award Booking Services Featured in Travel Insider Newletter

David Rowell’s excellent weekly Travel Insider e-newsletter mentions my award booking service today:

Here’s an interesting new service offered by Gary Leff, a respected and knowledgeable commentator about all matters airline related, and someone I’ve swapped occasional emails with for some years now.

He is offering to help people book award travel, and says he can both take the hassle out of the process and also use his extra knowledge and familiarity with the ins and outs of award travel restrictions and – well, not so much loopholes as the creative opportunities that can be taken advantage of, in a way that might enhance your ability to secure the travel you’re trying to find.  He’ll do this for a $150 fee for one person, and $100 for each extra person traveling on the same itinerary.  He tells me he’ll only charge his fee if/when he has secured you satisfactory arrangements – if you’re not happy with what he can devise, there’s no charge.

I’m impressed with some of the strategies he uses to get award travel, and I’m impressed with Gary in general.  If you’re very au fait all the latest ways to find award seats – and Gary freely shares many of these in his ongoing blog entries – maybe you don’t need his assistance.  But if you don’t have the time to read through hours of content and to digest the sometimes labyrinthine complexities, you might find his service worth a try, particularly in light of its money back satisfaction guarantee.  Details here.

If I can be of help with your award needs, send me an email.

  1. I believe there is a substantially better margin if you have people hire you to actually earn miles on their behalf from scratch…and then book their travel!!!!!!

    Just conjecturing.
