Here we explain what you should consider when redeeming miles, where you can redeem them and how, step by step, you can achieve your dream award

Further information about redeeming miles

How long are my Miles & More award miles valid for?

Award miles are valid for 36 months from the date of the activity. Unused miles expire at the end of the relevant quarter. We will inform you about mileage expiry in the following ways:


  • The miles that are due to expire at the end of the current quarter and at the end of the following quarter are shown in your online statement.
  • You will receive a summary of all the miles that are due to expire at the end of the current quarter approximately two months in advance in your online newsletter. You can subscribe to the newsletter here.

    Tip: an example as an illustration: you took a flight from Frankfurt to New York on 12.12.2021. The miles you earned for this flight will expire 36 months later at the end of the quarter, i.e. on 31.12.2024.

Can I also give miles as a gift?

With Miles & More, you can give miles as a gift. A transaction fee applies. Transfer or receive award miles with our partner Loylogic. You can find more detailed information under Transfer Miles.


You can also redeem miles from your own mileage account for awards then give the awards as a gift, or book flight awards for your family or friends.


Tip: if you wish to give miles to a good cause, we recommend using our mileage donation option. Simply select one of our charitable projects and donate an amount of your choice.

How can I book a flight award?

The quickest way to get your flight award ticket is by booking online via the Miles & More website. Here you will find flight connections with almost all our airline partners which you can book straight away.
