Roame: A New Search Engine for Award Flights

Pam

It’s easier to earn points than it is to find award flights—we can all agree on that. We love using search engines like AwardLogic and Point.me to help us find award flights. I just checked out Roame, a new search engine for award flights, and was pleasantly surprised at the speed at which it worked and what it found for me. And it’s free! 🎉

It currently searches for award travel among 10 airline loyalty programs, with more to come. They currently cover 122 airlines, including the alliance and non-alliance partners of their airline loyalty programs making the coverage very broad. The airline programs it covers are:

  • AeroMexico Club Premier
  • Air Canada Aeroplan
  • Air France / KLM Flying Blue
  • American Airlines AAdvantage
  • Avianca Lifemiles
  • Delta SkyMiles
  • Emirates Skywards
  • Iberia Plus
  • United Airlines MileagePlus
  • Virgin Atlantic Flying Club

I was really impressed by how quickly the results came up. Let’s check out how it works!

Search

I decided to search Denver to London in business class. Here are the results—it was an almost instant search (pretty amazing)!

To be honest, I don’t love the results, but I am looking for a ticket that is only a few months away. I will find better results if I am flexible with dates and book further out. I have NEVER paid 155K miles for a business class flight and probably won’t now either. In this case, I would choose another date. If I was willing to pay 155K miles, I would go to the United site, find my flight, and book there.

I found some great deals when I switched to a date in the fall in economy class:

Bottom Line

I love having another option for searching for award travel redemptions. Roame is not only fast, but it is free! I will certainly add it to my arsenal of ways to find award tickets!

    Just clicked through Roame and like you said, it’s super fast! Thank you for sharing. Definitely adding Roame to my arsenal for booking award travel flights

    So based on the participating airlines, it seems like this is a good tool for searching for flights to Europe or Latin America, but not Asia. Is that your experience, too?
