    Good Day!

    I am trying to book award travel on United. I wanted to book the following round trip itinerary:

    REGINA - DUBLIN - DUBROVNIK
    DUBROVNIK - PRAGUE - REGINA

    The United representative said that I could only book one stopover on a round trip booking. My question is this, could I book REG-DUB-DBV as a one-way, and then call back and book DBV-PRG-REG as a separate one-way? Will they allow that?

    Thanks in advance!

    You cannot have any stopovers on a one-way award. Assuming you want to stop at Dublin, Dubrovnik and Prague you cannot do it as a "normal" award booking. You can open-jaw within Europe though. Figure out which of the segments would be cheapest to buy in cash (DUB-DBV or DBV-PRG) and book the award skipping that segment. So if DUB-DBV is cheap book the award as Regina-DUB + DBV-PRG (stopover) + PRG-Regina.

    Thank you. Hopefully I will get this all figured out someday.
