Booking award travel for employees?
So I have a small business with 10 employees, and we have millions of Chase UR points and Amex MR points.
The goal would be to save on staff travel, and the best way to do this is utilizing transfer partners.
My question is: If I transfer a few hundred thousand points to my Avios, United, etc. accounts and issue tickets for several different people, will this raise a bunch of red flags? I want to follow the rules, but don’t know how I am supposed to transfer and issue tickets for employees.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
No, that should be fine. I’d just make sure award space is all there before transferring the points over.
And Daniel, don’t forget you can use the Pay with Points feature if there’s not award space available. That will allow your employees to earn miles for their flights too.
