Frequent-flyer programs are customer loyalty programs used by many airlines that allow you to earn points or miles that are redeemable for free flights, upgrades, hotel stays, car rentals or shopping. Everybody should participate in these programs as they can save you tons of money by travelling (almost for) free as well as offer you tons of other perks.

COMING SOON: this page will be updated in 2017, and I will list the pros and contras of the most lucrative programs and how to take advantage of them. Meanwhile, you can already read my advice for the best frequent flyer program for UK and EU based travelers.

  1. I find your idea that American Airlines is the best program for European travelers very clever and when it comes to the award charts there is definitely a very strong argument in favour of that. I would like to know your thoughts for someone living in Germany, particularly those living close to Düsseldorf or Berlin, the hubs of Air Berlin (OneWorld, again I agree that OW is the strongest alliance). Here in Germany it’s pretty hard to collect AA miles without actually flying, but there are several options to collect Topbonus miles and I am still not sure which program to focus on. One interesting feature of the Air Berlin branded credit card is that you can collect status points in additional to miles, so that should be factored into the equation. Looking forward to your review of loyalty programs, excellent website and many thanks for sharing your experiences!
