Make the Most of Your MileagePlus Award Travel - United Hub

Make the most of your MileagePlus award travel

By The Hub team, November 15, 2017

We recently introduced some changes to MileagePlus® award travel, including a new award travel option called Everyday Awards. Everyday Awards replace Standard Awards and feature pricing that varies from flight to flight. We've published an Everyday Award chart so that you'll know the highest number of miles needed for each award.

We continue to offer our popular Saver Awards, which provide the best value for award travel, and we've published an updated Saver Award chart. While some prices are now higher or lower than they were before, you'll continue to enjoy the same prices for Economy Saver Award travel to, from or within the 48 contiguous United States.

Plus, you can still take advantage of the Excursionist Perk, which is a free one-way award within select multi-city itineraries, assuming all requirements are met.

To help you make the most of your award travel and to learn more about Everyday Awards and the Excursionist Perk, check out the videos below.

Now as the entire shipping and logistics industry bands together to widely distribute vaccines, United is leveraging all of its flights, including cargo-only and those carrying passengers, to transport millions of vaccines to destinations throughout our network, including Honolulu, Guam and Saipan – the first of any carrier to do so.
