Hawaii- is there a point consult for 1 time trip

Hawaii- is there a point consult for 1 time trip

  1. Anonymous

    I am looking to book airfare and hotel to Maui and am wondering if there is a service that offers a one time fee for using/booking with points? PointsPros is based on a yearly membership and I am not sure if this is the right choice for me based on the points I will most likely use for this one trip. Thus me wanting to find the same kind of service for a one time trip vs a year of trips.

    Hi Ginger,

    We absolutely do offer single trip consultations, we just offer more services and a discounted per-trip rate for members.

    That being said, for a trip to Hawaii, if you’re reading the blogs and such, you can probably book on your own just fine. Award space is super limited to Hawaii, so that will be the hardest part.

    Hi Tiffany, how can I get in touch with a trip consultant?

    Welcome [USER=4520]@markgray[/USER] – on the Points Pros website in the upper right-hand corner there’s a “Get Started” tab. Fill out the form on that page and, as the page says, they’ll get back to you within one business day.

    Thank you Tiffany! Can you direct me to what blogs? I need a starting point. I am trying to fly out of CVG and do not want to use Delta if I don’t have to because their points on a round trip fare are upwards of 300,000 pts for business/first class. Do you recommend I book my flight first and then the hotel? I am staying on points for both and are there are black out dates for Hilton at the Grand Wailea for points. One more caveat, I am trying to book through American Express Platinum to get the 35% points back feature and notice they do not offer the flight choices you would get from a regular booking. So wondering if I should transfer hilton honor points to Delta and use Am Ex Platinum points to book the hotel.

    Okay, so start with these posts, because it is complicated: [URL]https://onemileatatime.com/redeeming-miles-to-hawaii-can-be-tough/[/URL]

    If you want to use the Amex Biz Platinum 35% rebate, you should have all the same options as you’d see on Google Flights. If you don’t, you can call in and they’ll help.

    You should definitely not transfer Hilton points to an airline, as that is a horrible ratio. Similarly, Membership Rewards points aren’t a good value for hotels.
