AWARD CONSULTING SERVICE
Need Help Planning Or Booking Your Award Trip?
Having trouble booking that dream trip using your miles? Not sure which credit card strategy is right for you? Confused about how to maximize the points you already have? The Points Jet Setter can help with that!
As an aviation nerd, travel bum and habitual mileage collector, I can help advise you on how to best maximize your points and miles, while minimizing your out of pocket costs for the trip of your dreams that you may have never thought you could afford! I also offer consultations for planning out a credit card sign-up strategy to help get you to the trip of your dreams quicker. Regardless of whether you’re looking to get to your destination as inexpensively as possible, or whether you want nothing but the best first class experience from airlines like Cathay Pacific and hotels like the Park Hyatt, I can help!
Considering I utilize these methods and strategies myself for premium cabin and hotel redemptions, I know how exciting it can be to book these dream trips. That is why I would love the opportunity to help make your dream travel a reality!
To help keep your costs low and limited to only the help you want, I have an “a la carte” approach to my fee structure. Best of all, if I can’t find a trip that matches your specifications, you pay nothing!
Credit Card Strategy & Analysis Consult – $50
There’s no question that one of the easiest and quickest ways to earn miles and points is through credit card sign-up bonuses and spending multipliers. My consult includes an analysis of your current cards, mileage and points balances, spending abilities and travel goals so that I can offer a points and miles accrual strategy that is specifically tailored to your needs. The consult includes a personalized list of recommendations which will be provided to you prior to a 30 minute phone consultation to answer any questions or concerns you may have. I am of course happy to provide you with additional consulting time at my billable hourly rate after the initial 30 minute consultation.
Award Consulting – $150 and up
My standard award consulting includes analyzing the best approach for your award travel, providing assistance with transferring points as necessary, finding award availability, making award booking(s) and helping with seat selection for one passenger. Stopovers (airline program permitting) are included in this fee. Although we will do our best to make your stopover requests work, certain itineraries may require booking multiple awards. Should your itinerary require more complex routing and/or require multiple tickets, an additional fee may be incurred at our discretion.
Additional passengers (so long as they are on the same itinerary) are only $75 each.
Route Monitoring – $50 (per route)
Award availability is always fluid and constantly changing. My route monitoring service will monitor your itinerary for award availability or upgrades to a higher class of service, as well as provide alternative routing options. Please be aware that route monitoring fees are due regardless of whether or not your requested award space becomes available and is not subject to my refund offer.
Award Help – $125 and up
Already have some of your trip planned or booked, but just can’t seem to pull everything together? Not sure why your award is not bookable? Need help with a unique routing? I can help with that! Please e-mail me with your scenario and I will provide you with a customized consult quote.
Itinerary Changes (After Booking) – $75 per passenger
Decided you wanted to extend or shorten your trip? Want better flights time or routing? I can help provide alternative available award options!
General Consulting Services – $100 per hour
Have questions about obtaining elite status with your preferred airline, hotel chain or rental car agency, planning mileage runs, developing a long-term travel award strategy, or just want someone to bounce your travel thoughts and ideas off of? I can help with that!
