Aside from settling on the best redemption strategy (our award pricing calculator can help there), the most difficult part of award travel is finding availability.

Our booking guides offer step-by-step instructions on how to redeem points for South African Airways tickets across several programs. Since flights may not be searchable online by every program, take advantage of other program websites to check availibity—much easier than doing so over the phone.

Starred programs are recommended for searching for award space. New to miles and points? See our Beginner's Guide.
