Roame.travel is a new, free award search tool so I figured it was worth bringing to your attention.
So far they’re just searching (9) award programs for availability:
- United MileagePlus
- Air Canada Aeroplan
- American Airlines AAdvantage
- Delta SkyMiles
- Avianca Lifemiles
- Air France KLM Flying Blue
- Virgin Atlantic Flying Club
- Aeromexico Club Premier
- Iberia Plus
For the most part, I can get saver award results that they offer now by searching Air Canada, American, and Air France. Still, many of you might find this useful.
They don’t give you the breadth of point.me, or the strategies for getting an award for the fewest points (or for the fewest points that you have, and they don’t walk you through transfers and booking the way that point.me does.
And they don’t search multiple dates in a single search, or save queries and email when availability opens up, which would be value add compared to many current tools.
This won’t be the one I’m using – I’m a heavy enough user that more robust paid tools make sense. But the tool is free and they’re not done yet – they’re in beta – and they promise they have no “plans to charge right now,” telling me that their revenue model will be advertising.
