Award Booking Service
In addition to the free information on this site, I also offer a custom award planning and booking service.
If you're looking for a crazy, 15-city, round-the-world-in-business-class adventure, nobody does it better. If you just want to skip the headache of searching through pages of flights, and have a well-planned itinerary built and gift-wrapped, I do that too.
I'm also a TICO-certified travel agent, with access to special rates and perks at he finest hotels in the world.
Why Use An Award-Booking Service?
Years of non-stop travel give me extra insight into why you'll be happier on one airline instead of another, what it's like to spend a long layover in Phnom Penh or Zurich, why a nervous flyer might prefer to fly into Heathrow over London City, and why you'll be happier flying Turkish Airlines from Montreal than from Toronto.
Can't I Just Do It Myself?
You absolutely can; I've provided all the tools on this site, and I'm happy to answer questions. The booking service tends to be most popular with busy people who just want the details handled expertly.
How Does It Work?
Send me a note - graham AT flyermiles dot ca - with an idea of what you've got in mind. I can handle specific or vague, and once I've learned what's important to your trip, I'm happy to suggest routes and destinations you're likely to love.
If you want quick, easy connections, or the best airport lounge experiences, or a routing that gives you the opportunity to make overnight visits to as many cities as possible, I'll tailor your routing around that too.
I send a sample itinerary, and once we've nailed down your plan, I give you a detailed script of exactly what you'll need to confirm the booking. Unfortunately, most airlines' rules won't let me make the booking on your behalf, but I make it really easy, or, if you prefer, I can conference-call in and walk the agent through the booking.
Why Should You Trust Me?
You don't need to!
I've set the whole process up so that I never have access to your personal information or your account - and you should never book with a service that wants access to your frequent-flyer accounts!
I don't get a commission for booking awards - I charge a flat fee - and I work for you, not the airlines. I succeed and make more money when I give you a trip that's so good you tell your friends. It works!

Obviously, any airline miles, and fees and taxes charged by the airline, are not included. I'm only selling skilled advice.
As Aeroplan doesn't publish the fees and taxes charged for multi-city awards, and gives me a discount based on my personal frequent-flyer status, I can only give an educated guess at what this number will be, based on years of booking similar awards. If specific fee details are available to me, I'll share them.
Payment is by Interac bank transfer or Google Pay once your booking is complete.
