Frequent Flyer Search Engine

  1. Has anyone here heard of Travelgrove? They seem to be the only ones that provide frequent flyer info with every flight. Check out the frequent flyer tab that lets you view what airlines offer how many miles and what you can buy with them inside a simple matrix.

    Curious....

    Welcome Traveldude.

    Thanks for the information. I am sure it will be useful to many people here.
     
  6. Hey Akcae,

    The tab is on the left side on top.

    ------------------------------------------
    Also, I know travelgrove has MileBlaster as the data provider, you can see this when clicking on the little buttons inside the search results. Does MilePoint offer a similar service?

    Thanks

    I didn't really understand what traveldude was trying to say, but it is a neat feature once I figured it out.

    Once you search for a flight, you can look at the results in typical matrix that shows price by airline and number of stops. You can also look at the number of miles you would earn with each airline, viewable by total miles earned, miles per dollar based on the cheapest cost of the flight, and % of a domestic award flight (for example you may earn more miles on airline X, but airline Y has cheaper awards, so fewer miles on Y would equate to a higher %). I'm not sure it's something I would ever use, but if you want to maximize earning on flights without sticking to a specific carrier, it could definitely be useful.
