Which Hotel Points Transfer to Airline Miles (But Is It a Good Idea?)

Million Mile Secrets reader, TB, commented:

 Hi Daraius,

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?

Thank you.

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.

Let’s 1st look at transferring hotel points to airline miles.  And later we can take a look at transferring airline miles to hotel points.

A Stopover in Vibrant Hong Kong: Part 5 – Eating in Hong Kong

Daraius and I took my parents on an around-the-world trip to the MaldivesIndia, and Hong Kong.  My step-dad, Mark, had never been outside the US, and my mom had only been to India.

We had a free stopover in Hong Kong with our Cathay Pacific flight back to the US.

Daraius and I thought it would be a great experience for them to see Hong Kong because it’s such a dynamic city!  It’s also very different from both India and the Maldives.
