Product

We enable our customers to travel more, travel better and travel further. 20M+ consumers stock away miles & points to satisfy their wanderlust.

Flying around or using credit cards are the only good ways to fill the stockpile today. We've built the third way. Customers earn ~7000 miles/booking for staying among a handful of premium hotels in each city. One stay can now earn a free flight.

Hotel partners fill rooms that would have otherwise gone unused with coveted premium business travelers.
