Membership Award redemption to Israel
I’m trying to help friends book a 2019 trip to Israel from the east coast (can position to wherever they need to). They have a stockpile of Membership Reward points, but no UR.
Any suggestions for the best redemptions? I’m aware of the El Al redemption, but it’s obviously pretty steep. Is there another transfer partner that requires fewer MR points (one connection is fine).
Thanks in advance!
FlyingBlue has the best award prices, as they consider Israel to be in Europe. You’ll pay some fuel surcharges, but save a ton of miles.
Book early though, as space disappears quickly.
Thank you so much, Tiffany! I found exactly what I needed on FlyingBlue and my friends are thrilled. Hoping to pull the trigger on a biz class redemption this week.
