Fly round trip premium economy class between Vancouver and Europe for only 42,500 miles!

The newest set of Air France KLM’s Promo Rewards are now out!  This month we see a drop to only one option for flying out of Canada. With promo rewards the discount ranges from 20 to 50% off the regular amount of miles required to redeem for these flights. As you can see just by the discount this can be a very good offer if you get 50% off for Business Class! This month sees only one of five Canadian cities as part of the deal. You can save 50% off premium economy class reward tickets to Europe from Vancouver on Air France.



Offer details
November Promo Rewards – Save 20% to 50% on the Award Miles usually required for an award ticket. Destinations vary by each promotional period.  Full Details & online booking  Book by Nov 30  for travel Jan 1 - Feb 29, 20

This month's Canadian cities:
Vancouver - 50% off premium economy class on Air France

Here are the mileage requirements for flying from Vancouver or Paris (the mileage amount will vary for other cities in Europe).


And an example of some of the availability from Vancouver to Paris in January:


  And return flights:


As you can see there is pretty good availability for the route in premium economy.


Here are other options which price out less in terms of the mileage requirement!




Remember one way flights are exactly half of the above mileage amounts.

If you don't have enough miles for a Promo Reward your best bet is to convert Marriott Bonvoy points to Flying Blue on a 3:1 basis. Remember you'll earn 5,000 bonus miles when you convert 60,000 points at a time (a total of 25,000 miles per 60,000 points) That means 120,000 points will get you to 50,000 miles which is more than enough to cover a round trip flight between Vancouver and Rome, Lisbon or Warsaw in premium economy class!

If you don't have any Marriott Rewards Points you can always look at getting the Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card to top off your account. Currently the card comes with a 50,000 point sign up bonus when you spend $1,500 on the card and then you could also grab the Marriott Bonvoy Business American Express Card as it also has 50,000 point sign up bonus. You would then ultimately be able to have 100,000 points which can be converted 3 to 1 to Flying Blue Miles plus Marriott will kick in an additional 5,000 miles for every 60,000 points transferred.  Of course timing of getting the card(s) now, spending and getting the points will likely not happen for this month but it sets you up for future offers.  Need to grab two tickets for an itinerary? You could choose to get one Marriott card for yourself and one for your partner or spouse and you'll have a lot more points!
