There are some hotel and airline chains in which you can transfer points/miles to points/miles and vice versa for 1:1 or 1:2 or better ratio.
What site can I go to to know what hotel or airline accepts transferred points/miles from other hotels or airlines?
Great question! You can NOT transfer airline miles from 1 airline to another. And you can NOT transfer hotel points between hotel programs. But it is possible to transfer hotel points to airline miles.

I’ll explain how to do it. And if it’s ever a good idea to make the transfer!
One of the best tricks miles and points enthusiasts use is concentrating their efforts on collecting transferable points to use on award tickets, hotel stays, and more!
Instead of focusing on earning points in a specific frequent flyer or hotel guest program, folks who collect transferable points have many more options for how they use them!
That’s because you can choose to transfer your points to dozens of different programs.
