Have you ever wanted to book a round-the-world (RTW) trip but didn’t know where to begin?
Did you know that it’s possible to book such an extravagant journey with just one award ticket? Although many frequent-flyer programs have done away with RTW awards, it’s still possible.
One of the few programs that still allow you to book these fun awards is Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer.
Let’s take a look at how you can book a RTW award with Singapore KrisFlyer miles!
Why Singapore KrisFlyer Miles?
There are two reasons you might want to book with KrisFlyer miles:
- Reasonable redemption rates for round-the-world tickets
- Ease of accumulation
If you’re thinking, “But wait! I don’t have any Singapore miles,” do not fret. They’re much simpler to obtain than you think, especially if you prefer collecting transferrable points.
You can transfer points to Singapore KrisFlyer from all major transferable points programs: American Express Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards and Citi ThankYou Points. Each of these programs transfers points at a 1:1 ratio.
Marriott Rewards points can also be transferred to Singapore KrisFlyer as well at a 3:1 ratio Additionally, every 60,000 points you transfer at once will provide a bonus of 5,000 miles. In other words, 60,000 Marriott points will net you 25,000 KrisFlyer miles.
It’s even possible to redeem miles for another traveler, which means you can book both tickets from the same account and share this unforgettable experience.
