Travelers will now be able to use their Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles for hotel stays at more than 400,000 hotel properties around the world. According to Alaska, the new change is due to their partnership with Rocketmiles, a hotel booking site.
“Redeeming miles for hotels was among the most requested enhancements to Mileage Plan, and our members now have the ability to redeem valuable Alaska miles for both flights and hotels,” said Ryan Butz, Alaska Airlines’ managing director of loyalty. “This is particularly exciting for our Alaska Airlines credit cardholders, who will have access to discounted award pricing through Mileage Plan Hotels. Our Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® cardholders not only earn Alaska miles on everyday purchases and save with our companion fare offer and free checked bags, but now have another way to use those miles. It’s now the only credit card Alaska flyers need.”
Members of Alaska Airlines’ Mileage Plan can also earn up to 10,000 miles for each hotel night booked through the service. To book their room, they can now use miles or cash, or a combination of both.
“This travel portal unlocks a new way for Mileage Plan members to use their coveted miles,” said Bart Welch, Rocketmiles’ chief revenue officer. “We look forward to strengthening the relationship and maximizing the value of Mileage Plan miles.”
You can book your hotel stays now with Alaska Airlines miles.
