How do I make a miles-earning booking?

You can earn Asia Miles by making a booking with any of their car rental partners, by using the links provided above.

In terms of eligibility, earning miles simply requires you to be a member of the Asia Miles program.

Maximise value tip 1: start with Cashrewards

Avis, Europcar, Hertz, and Sixt are program partners of Cashrewards, which gives you an opportunity to earn cashback on each rental car booking.

Clicking through to these car rental websites from the Cashrewards landing page will yield you miles and a discount, which is not available by going through the Asia Miles-branded pages directly.

The links above will take you directly to the relevant Cashrewards page.

Maximise value tip 2: compare prices between Rentalcars.com and other partners for long-term rental

For any long-term rental, make sure to compare prices between Rentalcars.com and the other direct booking partners.

If prices are the same, and there are no current bonus miles promotions, you’ll generally earn more miles on a booking via Rentalcars.com if the cost of the hire is HK$2,500 (NZ$438) or more.

This is because you’ll earn a fixed 500 miles on personal car rental with each partner, whereas you’ll earn 2 miles per HK$10 (NZ$1.75) with Rentalcars.com.
