Take the trip of your dreams with United MileagePlus

 

Have you ever wanted to go to Singapore, Iceland, Switzerland or Australia?

There’s no need to wait — it’s time to take advantage of the miles you earned with your United MileagePlus account.

You might ask yourself, why now? But we ask, why not now? Crossing off items on your bucket list now means you’ll be able to add more items for the future. It even gives you the opportunity to return someday and share these experiences with your loved ones.

If you’re celebrating a milestone, there’s no better way to be festive than to put the miles you earn to good use. After all, you won’t turn this age, celebrate this anniversary or complete this program again. Honor these events, as they should be commemorated.

It’s no secret science directly links travel to happiness. Experiences satisfy us more than things, and travel is the ultimate experience.

Need more inspiration?

Here are a few ways MileagePlus members used their miles to take a once-in-a-lifetime trip, attend an exclusive experience or share the joy of travel with others.

Eric Chiang used a combination of miles and credit card points to embark on a journey around the world with one-way business- and first-class awards.

Here’s a look at where he went:

  • Tokyo
  • Paris
  • Singapore
  • Johannesburg
  • Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
  • Cape Town, South Africa
  • Dubai, United Arab Emirates

For a published itinerary of $27,618, Chiang used 540,000 miles and paid $980 in fees, achieving an excellent redemption rate of about five cents per mile —all while making memories to last a lifetime.

On the other side of the coin, Steven White used his miles to go to the Pebble Beach Food & Wine Festival, participate in a golf event and buy two Tumi bags. White’s used his miles to fulfill bucket-list experiences and events — as it was more important to him to do the things he wouldn’t have had the chance to do otherwise.

– Steven White, Owner, Steven White Marketing & Consulting

To spread the joy of travel to loved ones, Donna Childs used both miles and hotel points to send her parents on a milestone anniversary trip to London and Paris, flying first class all the way.

Plan a célébration spéciale this holiday season with a stay at a historic French chateau in the Loire Valley.

Guests can sip mulled wine and nibble on sweet indulgences, or peruse the shops for authentic, artisanal Chambord products crafted from the estate’s own natural resources.
