New award booking services seem to be popping up quite a lot lately and the lastest, at http://www.bengalimilesguru.com offers the service for a mere $50 per reservation–even when booking for multiple travelers on the same reservation. The Bengali Miles Guru, a.k.a. Tahsir Ahsan, is a 20-year old student majoring in Business Administration at the University of California, Riverside, and has been traveling since he was a toddler with the encouragement of his mother who works for an international airline. Tahsir also blogs about travel rewards. Read more at the Milepoint thread that launched the award booking service at http://www.insideflyer.com/link/?7206
Bottom line: At $50, this service is worth a look, and if Tahsir can’t find an award itinerary you’re happy with, there will be no charge.
