Drive and Sleep With Frequent Flyer Miles on United

United Mileage Plus Elite Members Now May Redeem Miles for Car Rentals and Hotel Stays

Partners Include Avis, Alamo, Hertz, National, Marriott and Radisson Hotels & Resorts

CHICAGO, April 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — United Mileage Plus(R) miles now can go a lot further for United’s most frequent travelers — 1K(R), Premier Executive(R) and Premier(R) Mileage Plus members — who may redeem them for hotel stays and car rentals, in addition to flights, music and cruises.

“We are delighted to offer more value to our loyal customers by giving them the opportunity to redeem their Mileage Plus miles for hotel stays and car rentals,” said Arnold Lewis, vice president-Marketing Programs. “Our Elite members find themselves on the road more than the average person, and we want to make their journeys as comfortable, smooth and easy as possible with more redemption opportunities in the Mileage Plus program.”

Whether traveling for business or pleasure, elite Mileage Plus members may use miles with Marriott or Radisson Hotels and Resorts(R) for a free* night’s stay. Miles may be redeemed for stays at both participating domestic and international properties.

Elite members also may qualify for two consecutive weekdays or two consecutive weekend days free* when they use their miles with Alamo, Avis, Hertz or National. A weekend rental is as little as 10,000 miles, with no daily time or mileage charge, for a compact, intermediate, mid-size or full-size car.

Because many of these offers were warmly received by 1Ks and Premier Executives last month, the benefits are now being extended to Premier Mileage Plus members to thank them as well for their continued loyalty.

To redeem miles for hotel stays and car rentals, members simply visit Mileage Plus’ “Awards Redemption Center” on united.com . Following this process, members will receive an award certificate by mail, to be presented at the time of car rental or hotel check-in.
