Mar 20 Update: Air France KLM Avis Accumulator is back, new AAdvantage Award Map feature and Accor Hotel 3 for 2 Sale

A good mixture of news, travel deals and bonuses to pass your way today!

News, Tips & Tricks

The big news today is once again in the bonus offers section and that is the return of Air France KLM Flying Blue's Avis Accumulator promotion. This is one of the best car rental promos that you can take advantage of, especially if you have at least 6 rentals planned between April and December. Why is it so good? Well after you complete six eligible 3-day Avis rentals worldwide you will end up with 50,000 bonus Flying Blue miles over and above your base miles. That's enough for a round-trip economy class ticket from Canada to Europe. If the price is right on the rental, I will plan to funnel my Avis rentals to Flying Blue (well for those that are 3+ days) to take advantage of the offer.

Lucky from One Mile at a Time reports that one way award travel on American Airlines is now available for Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members, I think this news is moreso for those of us out West but I believe there are a few MBNA Alaska Airlines credit card holders down east who can take advantage of this.

Continuing on with American Airlines, they have now launched a great new Award Map feature on their website. The feature allows to find where you can go with your miles in a map form . All you have to do is input your home airport, what type of travel you are interested in (by region or interest), dates of travel, how many travellers and the amount of miles you want to use and the feature will map out what destinations you can use your AAdvantage miles on those dates. I played around a bit with the new feature for flights out of YYC and I must say I find it fun and extremely useful! Some other blogs are reporting some small bugs with the feature which I imagine AA will iron out soon since it is so new. Check it out here.
