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.

It’s the time of year when folks are planning their summer trips to Europe. Sometimes low-level award seats can be hard to find because it’s such a popular place to go!
So it’s good to have options for the cheapest ways to get there using miles and points!
Here are my favorite cheap award tickets to Europe. If you don’t mind flying coach class, you could get there for as few as 25,000 miles round-trip!

And remember, you don’t have to fly there and back on the same airline.
Sometimes you’ll get a better deal (and more available award seats) by booking 1-way flights on different airlines. Or you might mix-and-match because you don’t have enough points in 1 program for a round-trip ticket.
