Hello, how can we help you?

Mileage Pooling – getting there quicker together

A spur-of-the-moment short break, a jaunt in your dream car, a new barbecue – the best thing about award miles has to be the many experiences, both large and small, that you exchange them for. And now in the Miles & More app, you’ll find the new mileage pooling function, so that you can enjoy these beautiful experiences even more quickly. Here, two adults and up to five children can collect their award miles in a joint mileage pool – and fulfil their wildest dreams in no time at all.

Your benefits

  • Every member over the age of 18 can open their own pool – simply and in only a few steps in the Miles & More App.

  • Invite the people you want to pool miles with.

  • All the members’ award miles will now be collected in your pool. Whilst minors can carry on redeeming their own miles themselves, only the two adults can redeem pooled miles.

  • A clever detail: The system manages your miles automatically according to the possible expiry date. Protected miles are only redeemed if the unprotected ones are insufficient for the desired reward.
