Rocket Miles allows users to book hotels through its platform and earn thousands of frequent flyer miles for various airline reward programs at the same time.
Rocket Miles is an online hotel booking website that allows users to gain airline miles along with their hotel reservation. All that’s required is you book your hotel room through the Rocketmiles system, and you can receive up to 5,000 miles to be redeemed on numerous airlines for flights around the world. That sounds too good to be true, but the site has a proven track record of awarding airline miles to customers booking hotels. The site works by asking users to answer the question “where do you need a hotel?” in the search bar. It also asks you to indicate the amount of guests that’ll be staying, the dates you need the hotel, and your preferred airline loyalty program. Rocketmiles then calculates a deal that results in a price for your hotel, as well as a certain amount of airline points on your preferred airline. A minimum of 500 miles/points is always available as one of the options for the deals.
Rocketmiles is the ideal site for the frequent traveler. If you’re going to be booking hotels in various cities, then that means you’re probably flying around a lot. There’s no reason not to earn airline miles while getting great deals on rooms in the process. The only downside is that you have to sacrifice hotel rewards points while using the site, because booking through Rocketmiles typically doesn’t count towards hotel rewards programs. The site explains that using their service is superior because they offer thousands of miles and points compared to what hotel customers typically receive. They have a valid point. Overall, the site should definitely be considered by anyone traveling to a new city and in need of a place to stay, especially if you reached your destination by airline.
