You want to redeem your airline miles or credit card points for the best International Business or First Class award ticket possible.

But the hassle and frustration of mileage award booking leaves you coming up empty handed or redeeming more miles than you should.

Clueless phone operators, clunky search software, and an endless array of rules make booking your own award a maddening experience.

You want help, but the airlines and credit card companies are often more of a hindrance to getting the award booking you know you deserve.

So who can you rely on to be your advocate and ally?

Your mileage award booking solution for international, first, and business class tickets

We are the only award booking company whose principal, Gary Leff, has earned the Conde Nast Traveler ‘Top Travel Specialist’ for four consecutive years.

Our reliability, trust, and effectiveness makes us one of just 135 companies chosen from the over 10,000 reviewed.

Book Your Award has also been featured in The New York Times, USA Today, CNN, and a dozen other travel media outlets.


The numbers tell our story.


Unmatched Experience

We have redeemed over 1.3 BILLION miles for international Business/First Class awards. We book more awards in one month than most companies book in a year.


Award-Winning Expertise

We find award space for more than 98.5% of our client requests. We know the non-intuitive routes, the under-the-radar partners, strategic alternate airports, and how to mix and match different programs. Plus, company principals Gary Leff (a.k.a. Mileage Guru) and Steve Belkin (a.k.a. Mileage Bloodhound) know the best strategies to leverage your Amex, Chase, and other credit card points to partner airline programs.



Other companies cut corners to avoid running multiple searches by hand. Our proprietary software searches up to 20 city pairs across 3 airline alliances—that’s 60 options at once. That exhaustive search means you get the best award possible.


Our Personal Assurance

We have personally flown on over 40 airlines. Our recommendations are based on firsthand knowledge of every airline’s in-flight products, lounges and connections.


Keeping your account information secure is our top priority, and information can’t be kept safe when it’s exchanged via email or casually handed off to third-party contractors.

Book Your Award is the ONLY booking service that employs a five-point security protocol to ensure that your account information stays protected:

At the time of booking, your account is accessed by software that does not reveal your account number or PIN/password to us, but instead passed it along securely to the airline or award program.
Your award request is submitted onto a secure and encrypted site powered by travel account security leader, AwardWallet.
We only work with full-time, in-house staff. No third party subcontractors will ever handle your booking.
Our company principals perform a quality control check and approve every award.
All communication is conducted through a password-protected, encrypted site.


No Obligation. Only pay when we find your award.

This valuable information can help you re-earn 40,000 to 100,000 miles, so you can jumpstart your next award trip.
