30,000 -> 5,000
70,000 -> 12,500

TrueBlue, JetBlue’s customer loyalty program, was re-designed successfully more than a year ago based on customer feedback. The program, which has over 10 million members, has no blackout dates, so customers can redeem their points for any seat on any flight (a) and one-way Award Flights start at only 5,000 points (b). To learn more about the program or enroll, go to www.jetblue.com/trueblue.
Marriott Rewards has no blackout dates and members can earn and redeem points at more than 3,400 Marriott International hotels around the world. In addition to hotels and frequent flier miles, members can also redeem points for merchandise, cruises, car rentals and more.
Marriott Rewards won the 2010 Frequent Travel Award and 2009 Freddie Award for “Best Hotel Rewards Program” and has been named best hotel rewards program by the readers of Business Traveler, Global Traveler, Executive Travel and BusinessWeek magazines.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
