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
Clicking through to these car rental websites from the Cashrewards landing page will yield you miles and cashback, 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 booking partners.
For example, if prices are the same and there are no current bonus miles promotions, you’ll generally earn more miles on booking via Rentalcars.com if the cost of the hire is HKD $2500 (AU$487) 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 HKD$10 (AU$1.96) with Rentalcars.com.
It is also worth considering you can earn 7 per cent cashback with Rentalcars.com through Cashrewards and cashback is not available for all other partners.
If Asia Miles are your currency of choice, you’re in luck, as you can pretty much earn on car rentals with most of the major companies, either directly, or through Asia Mile’s relationship with Rentalcars.com.Asia Miles can be a little tricky to collect in Australia depending on your circumstances, but linking your Asia Miles number to rental car bookings can be an easy way to boost your balance. Most of the major car rental companies have partnerships with Asia Miles, however, some of these companies do not operate in Australia and New Zealand and are therefore only relevant if you are abroad. Booking through Cashrewards is a great idea wherever available, to not only earn miles but also earn cashback on your car rental.
