I’m lucky that I get to travel a lot, and with a number of airlines only providing a chauffeur based on a particular business/first class fare type (I generally purchase the cheapest available) I find myself more and more booking airport transfers but left with only earning points based on credit card spend.
This is my current strategy:
- I’m a Starwood Fan through and through, currently receiving 4 Points per $ during my stay, and 1 Point Per $ Spent on everyday spend when using Uber (+ Credit Card Spend)
I don’t think that is to bad across the board to be honest, but when I get off a plane - the thought of trying to organise Uber in a non-english speaking country and find the pick up location doesn’t sound too appealing.
I recently started using Blacklane more and more, and they have recently introduced a partnership with Lufthansa… with 1 Point Per $ Spent. While I would approx. spend $20,000 + a year on transfers, the value just isn’t their for a program that I don’t see the value in.
Does anyone know of any other transfer providers that have point earn potential?
