Book a vacation using air miles by calling or visiting the websites of participating airlines, such as Delta Airlines and American Airlines. These websites also allow qualifying members to utilize points for certain aspects of vacation travel, such as car rentals or water cruises.
In the case of Delta Airlines, SkyMiles members can redeem up to 100,000 miles of their airline points towards vacation expenses. Local vacation travel has a lower mileage cap; for instance, travel to Las Vegas takes 25,000 miles.
To book a vacation with Delta's SkyMiles via the Internet, visit the airline's website at Delta.com, complete the Shop This Deal form, and click on the More Vacation Options button. Click the Search button and complete travel information. The payment page gives you the option to redeem your miles for the trip. If you book over the phone, tell the representative that you would like to redeem your miles with Miles to Go.
To redeem miles for vacations on American Airlines website, fill out the Book Vacation tab with departure and return locations and dates and number of passengers. The website then gives you several flight itineraries to choose from. After booking a flight, enter relevant travel information and any payment to complete the process.
