Save Time Using AwardMapper to Search for Hotel Award Nights

Emily and I use AwardMapper (a free online tool) when we plan trips to new destinations.  It’s a fast way to see which hotels are available and the number of points you’ll need.

Instead of going to each hotel chain’s website to see if and where they have hotels in that city, AwardMapper shows you every hotel chain on the map at the same time!

It even lists the number of points it’ll cost per night!
