Not happy with your existing do-it-yourself award ticket choices? Consider these options.

Buy or Transfer Miles and Ticket Yourself
To add miles to your account you may buy or transfer miles at the airline's website,
transfer or buy points from your credit card company, transfer points from your
hotel loyalty program or buy/trade points at points.com.

You may also contact a broker.
Brokers charge about 1.8 US cents per mile for American Express Membership Rewards transfers.
Amex Membership Rewards partners include Aeroplan, British Airways Avios, Delta Air Lines SkyMiles,
Flying Blue and KrisFlyer. Point transfers to these airlines should post immediately or within 2 days.
Transfers to other Amex Membership Rewards partners such as Asia Miles and ANA are slower to post.

Other credit card programs such as Chase Ultimate Rewards also allow you to transfer points
to anyone's airline frequent flyer account. Ultimate Rewards points transfer immediately.

The Starwood Preferred Guest program, SPG, is another popular airline point transfer option.

To buy miles from a broker please email ctn@awardtraveler.com.

Use Your Miles and an Award Booking Service to Ticket
When you have the miles an award booking service is another option. At $150 for
the first passenger, the booker may find availability, make reservations and ticket.
See USA Today article, Award booking services help frequent flier miles take flight.
