it's coming up for me with 0 miles included on a one-way rental for a luxury (cheapest option), any way to change that?
One way rentals on corporate codes is YMMV, it really depends what ur company negotiated.

Always make sure to check ur mileage.

Re: Hyatt Awards And Upgrades Master Thread
Hello all, pretty new to these forums but I was curious if it is possible to selll Brand Explorer nights or the night you earn when getting to Explorist status, the same way people are selling SUN's and Anniversary nights? All 3 types (Anniversary/Brand/Explorist) are up to Cat 4 to my knowledge. Also do people normally just use paypal to exchange the value of the night? Thanks for the help.
Yes that's what this forum is about.

Usally some1 will use PP or QP for payment and you'll confirm booking. There are  people that only deal with users that have a presence on these forums for credibility issues.

Re: Marriott Hotels
If booking with the free night certificates for immediate family, can I just make the reservation in their name, or does it have to be under my name and add them to reservation?

Also, if using 3 certificates and paying with points for 4th night, do I still get the 5th night free?

Best is to add them.

U should get 5th night free

Re: Vote on the new NY State Licence Plate
Interestingly 3 is modern vs all the others which are classic. It's the only one that depicts something that is distinctively from this millenium (none of the bridges constructed prior to this millenium were designed like that).

I thought of voting 3, but found 4 to be the most classical and my choice.
Agreed, Plate 4 represents something people know about NY and not some bridge some one dedicated in his own honor.

Re: Random airline-questions.
A relative of mine is flying AF YYZ-CDG-TLV with a 15-hr stopover in CDH and AF says on their website and by phone that they can't return a stroller for the stopover (even gate checked).

Any idea of how they can get their stroller back for their stopover? Thanks.
Is it an overnight stop?

Re: Time sensative question- FLight to Israel
OP is touching a point which I know a "friend" that tried it with a certain airlines point program twice, and got his points back. I however advise against it as it's blatant fraud. I don't however think this can be done with revenue bookings. Not worth being in "Lucky's" shoes for such a long time.

I did notice another interesting thing. Aeroplan now allows cancelation within 24 hours. Cancel button disappears once checked in.
It works, but why do it? It's not like they in error forgot to deduct the points.

If it happens once unintentionally, .... ok, but  continously doing it, seriously?

Re: Airline Compensation Master Thread
(Kept it to the minimal, because) they told me before it wouldn't be covered, and even if they wouldn't have said it was covered I couldn't trust them.

 I am not sure why you trust airlines by their word. They have rules and regulations they must adhere to, they have signed [UAE] the Montreal Convention and are responsible as per its rules.

 You lost out on some $$$$, and that's 4 didgets.

Do not disturb was on.

Was a 6 night stay. Tropical climate with outdoor shower connected to the bathroom & doors to a pool outside.

I emailed the manager again saying he can do a lot better based on what I paid. Let’s see what happens.
Agree he should, depending on how dramatic you play the walk in.

If say, some1 were to have a 10 night stay and there was an incident, I would not expect the hotel to reimburse in full. But if it were a 3 night stay, I see some room for argument....

Re: Marriott Certs Sale
any way to avoid 3rd person fee (child)?

once you factor in parking, extra person fee, wifi, resort fee etc.... its tempting to not waste my points (50k/night on avg) and just use Airbnb instead.

tried to do a booking last night for HI and was shocked that I was getting hit with near an extra $100/night in add-ons.
If there is a couch why disclose the 3rd person and why dont you just park off site, if that's possible.

I'm not cheap, but have done it many times, parked smack in front of hotel, faster then garage parking and didn't pay 50 for the convenience of parking 3 stories underground and walking up.

Re: Shutterfly Master Thread @Dan

If you make an order for non free stuff above 39usd you get free shipping via promo SHIP39 you can add a mug for $1+  buy using code FUNFREEBIES and upgrading for something priced a bit higher. If you get it for free there will be a shipping charge. This only works because it deducts a regular priced mug and the shipping fee is not added because its not free. Expires OCT 6.

Re: Hidden City Ticketing
Just wanted to share a recent experience. Feel free to flame me if you think I handled anything wrong; I did a bunch of research and asked in a bunch of forums prior to travel, and nobody warned me about what eventually happened. I specifically asked if IST as a hidden city ticket was sketchy, and everyone reacted like I was being a nervous nellie.

Anyway, I booked a flight for my wife in J on AF, by doing hidden city with IST as the final destination, it was 1/2 the points than they wanted for the flight just to CDG. I was going to be in the back with my kids.

Check in wasn't a problem. AF wanted to know her plan for a visa, but she told them she'd get one in the airport, and they let her go.

At the gate, she was called to the jetway by the gate agent, where she was met by two home land security agents. They proceeded to rifle through her luggage while they interrogated her for over 20 minutes, until the entire plane had boarded. They thought it was suspicious she was traveling to Istanbul alone, as a single woman, especially with her family traveling to a different destination. She mentioned a colleague from IST that had told her how nice it was there, and they promptly demanded that person's contact info as well as her sister's contact info at our final destination.

Anyway, eventually they let her on the plane and did not tip of AF. I know she probably should have just told them she was never intending to actually go to IST, but she was concerned they would tell AF and AF would keep her off the plane, and so she got nervous.

I'm not telling this story for any feedback, just a word of warning to be careful which hidden city tickets you end up targeting, as not every city is the same apparently (doubt this would have happened if it said she was going to Dublin).

Cool story, with happy ending.

You always need to play if your going to final destination.

Re: 15k RT to Hawaii on UA through Turkish
Very simple questions, but when transferring Citi TYP to Turkish (trying to book 15,000 Hawaii flights and at the beginning of this crazy convoluted process), do you put the letters TK or just the 9 numbers after it. Don't want to do anything to mess the transfer up. Also, does anyone know if there are any restrictions when transferring or booking with Turkish on United (for instance, Korean wouldn't let me book more than 5 people including myself on Delta, and they all had to be family members and verified beforehand with birth certificates) regarding family members. Thanks!
Just FYI. Reports on FT are that TK cant do partner bookings at the moment.

Re: What Do You Do For Kosher Food While Traveling?
For this exact reason, I love booking timeshare properties.  There are a ton with Marriott, Wyndham and Hilton that generally all have full kitchens, free parking, etc.  Many are stunning high end resorts or you have access to all the amenities of the sister hotel next door, without the resort and parking fees and with full kitchen and laundry.

How do you book them? off second hand sites?

Possible Scammer EWR I was in EWR, had a Israeli gentleman come over to me explaining in Hebrew that he lost his wallet and needs a train to DC. He asked for $86.

 Realizing he his most likley a scam. He sort of gave up on getting money. I then picked up his carry on and it was weight less. He opened it and had it packed with a pair of pants and a seltzer bottle. Not a typical traveler.

He ran away.

any info on award flights from nyc i understand its a big q but any help is appreciated
Mauritius - u can use Ethiad miles for Air Mauritius. They dont have gr8 availability form EU but do have decent form SA. U can search in EF.

Seychelles - You  can go with Saudi Airline - I believe they make 1 seat available in F, u can book with DL for 85K

This is based on what I remember form researching. I'm sure their are more options  such as SA from JNB.

Re: Star Alliance Award Search Tips

I need advice from experienced users.

I have 135,820 ANA miles.

I would like to fly Business NYC-TLV non stop end of January.

What's better? Booking a regular United flight and then use the mileage for an award upgrade to Business or purchase a Business award?
Its hard to find availability with UA.
Wouldn’t you need United miles to upgrade a revenue ticket?
U can upgrade *A with certain fare class purchases, not sure details with ANA and usually fair class requirements dont make it a viable deal.

Re: Dubai Master Thread
So in theory I don’t really have a problem wearing a cap, I wear caps for comfort reasons in America or Europe as well. However I’ve been to 72 countries and never was I told by a government official how to dress and how not to dress. If someone wants to wear a cap because he feels threatened (yes I know some people here think that they need to wear a cap anywhere that’s outside their neighborhood... but with Pittsbourgh and jersey city perhaps they’ll start wearing caps in Flatbush and Cleveland as well...) no problem but I think that this is something that should be decided individually and I personally do not think that there’s any issue wearing a Yarmulke in the UAE and so I was told by many time who did the same. I also wore it in Ras Al Khaima and other Emirates which are much more conservative and with a much larger local population then Dubai.

However, if I would’ve known that there’s a law prohibiting it, I would obviously respect the laws of the country wherever it is or I just won’t go to that country.

It was a long story but at the end the high ranking officer told me something in the lines that is quoted in the ami article above, however he did say that it was a requirement not to wear it and not just a suggestion (I made sure to clarify that).

I did have conversations with all the officers and got friendly with them. I was just very surprised that there is such a rule as this is not the image that the UAE seem to be portraying (especially with the year of tolerance), never mind the fact that they’re allowing in Israelis for the 2020 expo, I wonder if they will make it official while applying for a visa (or whichever procedure Israelis will have to do) or will just abandon this rule which in my opinion is wrong.

I also spoke with several members of the Jewish community in Dubai and they were very surprised to hear this - they’ll inquire about it with their contact in the secret police. What they told me was the same as I wrote above, that for their knowledge there’s no issue to wear anything in Dubai but that most local Jews prefer not to.
Who cares if you could or you are able to, use common sense.

I've been to many ME countries where muslims are the majority., I can have a conversation with some guy and possibly let them know I'm Jewish but to stick it in their face?
Many dont even know what a yarmulke is but all you need is one guy and then the country becomes UNSAFE.

Basics for security is, blend with the crowd.
