5 Million Mile Challenge
On World Refugee Day 2019, TripAdvisor launched a 5 Million Mile Challenge - a mission to donate 5 million miles by the end of 2019 to help relocate and reunite those who have been displaced.
How Does it Work?
When you donate miles, you’re pledging to fulfill a future case from one of our partner organizations. Our flight booking team will find the most efficient use of miles for each received case. Once we have a case that matches your specific pledge, we’ll work with you to book the flights.
We accept miles from many airline loyalty programs; however, based on the most frequent requests for departure/arrival locations, certain programs are used more frequently than others.
The most needed miles and points donations are:
- United Airlines
- American Airlines
- Alaska Airlines
- Southwest Airlines
- Flying Blue (Air France, KLM, Garuda, et al.)
- American Express Membership Rewards
- Chase Ultimate Rewards
- Capital One Rewards
- Air Canada/Aeroplan
The minimum donation amounts reflect airline programs' lowest single passenger award fare that Miles4Migrants can book for a refugee, asylum seeker, or asylee.
While our primary purpose is to use airline miles to book flights, these award flights often incur additional taxes/fees. Cash donations help us to cover those extra costs!
