Trips with Avianca LifeMiles


Recently, we talked about Avianca LifeMiles and the reward programs that transfer to them, Citi ThankYou Points and Capital One Venture Miles. We also went over how to do those transfers. Today, let’s talk about four trips you can book with Avianca LifeMiles.



One of my favorite girl’s trips was to Amsterdam. Seriously, the nicest people and most beautiful settings. I randomly picked one date and an award booking showed up from Denver to Amsterdam for only 25.5K LifeMIles. This is 4.5K cheaper than I could book the same United flight on the United site. It is also on the same airline. Crazy how that works sometimes.

For only 51,000 points transferred to Avianca LifeMiles, I can travel roundtrip to the beautiful city of Amsterdam!

In yesterday’s post, I talked about booking flights to Maui. Let’s see about booking to Honolulu today from Los Angeles. I even found a direct flight for only 15K LifeMIles one way and in the summertime – prime time to boot! Amazing!

Checking out a Waikiki sunset for only 30K points/miles sounds like a bargain to me!

London is a major destination dream for a lot of our readers. The nice thing about a trip to London is that you can visit more of Europe from there too. Take the Chunnel to Paris, take a cheap flight to Italy, or drive to Scotland – it’s all doable from London! Again, the crazy thing is that I found availability for this summer! Just because business class is hard to find this year, doesn’t mean that economy class is! Let’s check out Chicago to London:

One of our favorite destinations and one a lot of you want to go to is Greece. Let’s go from Washington D.C. to Athens on this flight. The flight will actually be on Lufthansa which can pass on heavy surcharges sometimes but not when you book this way! I love the idea of going to Greece on trips with Avianca LifeMiles!

Bottom Line

Booking trips with Avianca LifeMiles offers some cheaper redemptions and sometimes more options than going through the usual U.S. airlines. Even I learned that I need to look first with Avianca, especially for economy class flights. If you can dream it, Avianca LifeMiles, Citi ThankYou Points, and Capital One Venture Miles might be able to make it happen!

    Would this work for Germany too? We have over 150k capital one rewards and will get the Citi bonus as well.

    I’m trying to book a trip with this from dfw-jnb but nothing shows up. How do you see any availability?

    • pamiorg says:

      I see availability on April 18th The dates you are looking at may not have availability. I just picked a random date and it worked in economy class. Business is harder to find if you are looking for that.

    I am just getting into Lifemiles, and so far it seems like a no brainer! If I transferred my Capital One points (85000) to Lifemiles, do they expire after a certain amount of time?

    • Pam says:

      Yes, they do – 11 months after no accrual. But you can buy a few to extend the clock – that’s what I do!
