The traditional and still the most popular way to redeem frequent flyer points is via the purchasing of airline tickets.
Over the years, airlines that have a frequent flyer programme, have been accused of not making enough frequent flyer seats available for people to purchase.
At the same, the ways to redeem frequent flyer points has grown. Consumers are no longer confined to just redeeming points for airline tickets.
There are now additional options to use your frequent flyer points including:
- Car hire vouchers
- Accommodation vouchers
- Travel Insurance
- To access airline lounges
- Purchase flight upgrades
- Shopping vouchers
Virgin is even offering the opportunity to redeem points to go to space on Virgin Galactic.
All you need is 25,000,000 points and you are set to go.
