Delta Vacations is one of the largest vacation providers in the US. It offers customized vacation packages to more than 300 destinations in 60 countries worldwide. SkyMiles® Members will now get more out of booking with Delta Vacations thanks to some program updates that launched today.
15% More Value
Miles are now worth at least 15% more when put toward any Delta Vacations. SkyMiles redeemed through Delta Vacations were valued at one cent per mile. With the extra 15% in value, they now buy at least 1.15 cents per mile. 20,000 SkyMiles are worth $230, for example.
Earnings used to be capped at 5,000 bonus miles for a Delta Vacations package. Now, you can earn up to 10,000 bonus miles on every package booked (plus the miles you’ll earn from your flights). Passengers also earn Medallion Qualifying Miles (MQMs) and Medallion Qualifying Segments (MQSs) toward status the same way they would earn if they booked a flight with Delta. Medallion Qualifying Dollars (MQDs) toward status can be earned in one of two ways: MQDs when from flights or MQDs with exception fares (these will be credited based on the greater amount for the trip).
Delta Vacations has a new booking experience that makes it easier for customers on any device to find and book the right vacation package, including flights, hotels, rides, and activities all over the world.
Anthony’s Take: Delta Vacations is a good tool for Delta flyers who want the convenience of booking all aspects of a trip in one place. The increased value, ease of use, and bonus earnings are nice additions to the offering.
