AAdvantage members now have the option to combine miles and cash for car and hotel bookings real-time at a great rate. The American Airlines AAdvantage® program today introduced a new way for customers to use their miles for non-air award redemptions. Members booking travel can choose to pay for car rentals and hotel stays using only miles or a combination of cash plus as few as 1,000 AAdvantage miles.
AAdvantage members can benefit from some of the market's most competitive rates for redeeming miles for car rentals and hotel stays at more than 10,000 locations in more than 320 destinations worldwide. Additionally, AAdvantage elite status members will have access to exclusive redemption rates based on their AAdvantage Executive Platinum®, AAdvantage Platinum® or AAdvantage Gold® status when booking car and hotel award products. To learn about all of these enhancements, please visit www.aa.com/carandhotelawards.
Value, Convenience, Loyalty
The new AAdvantage car and hotel awards online site (www.aa.com/carandhotelawards) allows AAdvantage members to instantly book car rentals and hotel stays using miles alone or a combination of cash plus a minimum of 1,000 miles. Previously members had the option to use their AAdvantage miles to purchase car/hotel awards by redeeming for a vacation package through American Airlines Vacations or by exchanging miles for a paper voucher with a smaller number of AAdvantage partners. Now, members can book stand-alone car rentals or hotel stays with the new tool in real-time and see reviews. In addition, the enhanced car and hotel awards offer an attractive value and provide our members with another way to use their miles, making earning miles more valuable than ever.
The value delivered through www.aa.com/carandhotelrewards will be recognized by customers. Coupled with the convenience of being able to book and redeem awards 24 hours/day, seven days a week, customer loyalty is expected to be enhanced. And, AAdvantage members can still use miles for Admirals Club memberships, upgrades, and American Airlines Vacations packages.
