How about trotting around the globe, at a discount?

Yes, it’s possible to fly for free – or almost free – with Aeroplan miles. At least that’s how it should be until June 2020.

Things are up in the air – and until the dust settles, there are no guarantees. But chances are Aeroplan’s not going down without a fight to keep their members.

For now, we’ve got a stretch of 3 years to fly with Aeroplan miles. And yes, there are some hoops to jump through when booking with Aeroplan, like:

  • limited availability,
  • occasional bad connections,
  • fuel surcharges (depending on oil prices), and also yes...
  • taxes and fees.

But even with all that, savvy budget world-travellers know that collecting Aeroplan miles has always been a game worth playing. (They didn’t become the most popular airline rewards program in Canada for nothing, y’all. And it’ll be interesting to see what their plans are without Air Canada.)

So is Aeroplan still worth collecting? Time will tell.
