United Mileage Plus elite members who travel abroad can also redeem their miles for hotels stays both domestically and internationally at participating Marriott and Radisson properties.

If you would rather invest your miles in car rentals, you might be pleased to know that Mileage Plus elite members can qualify for two consecutive weekend days free when they redeem their miles for rentals from Avis, National, Alamo or Hertz. Members can get a weekend rental for as little as 10,000 miles, with no daily time or mileage charge, for a Compact, Intermediate, Midsize or Full-size car. This offer also requires an award voucher that can take up to four weeks for delivery. Miles must be redeemed via united.com to be eligible for both of the above offers.
