COVID-19 is changing daily life, pretty drastically, for everyone right now. At MileValue we are trying to adapt to the current climate by discounting our already existing services as well as offering a new one: assistance changing and canceling your upcoming flight.

Award Booking Service 30% OFF

MileValue is offering our Award Booking Service 30% off for all requests made by April 15.

Right now is not the time to travel unless it is absolutely essential. We all must play our part by social distancing at the very least and staying home when possible. We want to send a big thank you to the healthcare professionals and essential employees sacrificing their safety for society. You are appreciated.

That being said, award space is available, in most programs, for 11 months out from departure. That means right now you can book travel as far out as February 2021. Whether or not you feel comfortable booking future travel right now is a very personal decision, but if you want help we’re here for you.

Standard vs Sale Prices

We charge an upfront, non-refundable search fee for every award booking request. Typically the search fee is $50, no matter how many people are on the desired reservation.

  • Standard Search Fee: $50
  • Sale Price: $35

You can pay the search fee and get started here. After filling out the form, one of our award bookers will reach out via email and together you will set your desired terms as to your desired trip. If we find don’t find availability that matches these originally agreed upon terms, you will owe nothing more. If we do, then a final invoice, dependent on number of passengers on the reservation, will be sent.

  • Standard first passenger fee for a successful search: $150
  • Sale price: $105

Each additional passenger costs a little less.

  • Standard additional passenger fee for a successful search: $125
  • Sale price: $85

For example, through April 15, a successful…

  • single passenger search would cost $140 total instead of $200
  • two passenger search would cost $225 instead of $325
  • four passenger search would cost $395 instead of $575

Assistance With Flight Changes & Cancellations

Travel has slowed to a near halt as we and the airlines adjust to the new reality of social distancing, staying home, and waiting for the pandemic to improve. Jason Rabinowitz, @AirlineFlyer on Twitter, created and shared the map below which speaks pretty clearly to the current picture:

These are all scheduled and not canceled long haul flights operated by the legacy carriers as of April 1 (yesterday). Red lines are Delta, blue are American, and purple are United.

If your travel plans have been disrupted and you want help managing the fallout, we can help. We’ll wait on hold for you and do what we can to get your trip moved to the dates you desire, or to process cancellations and subsequent refunds. Fill out our form with your information and we’ll get back to you shortly.

The only condition is we ask that you not contact us unless your flight is within a week from departure. For more information, check out our dedicated page to assistance with flight changes and cancellations.

Stay safe and healthy out there people!
