    Hi. Im a new member to milepoint. Just joined today.

    I live in the UK and travel 70% of my time. My current mileage programmes are KLM Flying Blue and Marriott.

    By chance, had planned a weekend to Rome, and found I could use points for a free hotel stay in a Marriott. Was delighted, hadnt realised the tier level for redemption.

    Have now learned that Marriott are part of the Flying Blue Partners. My initial question is, which is better: hotel or air miles?

    Then my next question is, how do I get the benefit of my Flying Blue KLM miles? A lot of the hotels I stay in are part of the Flying Blue partners, however trying to get the miles for the stays seem difficult through their website. Im a Gold Card member, but have soo few points. How do I reap the benefit of my travel?

    Thanks in advance for help!!

    Keep this in mind but the best value with Marriott points are Hotel+Air packages..
