While we here at TPG try to help you make sense of award travel, sometimes there’s just too much to remember. And for that, exists to make searching for your next award flight easier.

AwardHacker’s interface is simple. You input where you want to go, if it’s one-way or round-trip, what class of service you want to travel in and how many stops you’re willing to make. Plus, you can further personalize your results by selecting what point or mile currencies you have.

Say you’re interested in traveling from New York to Paris round-trip in business class and have too many Chase Ultimate Rewards points that you don’t know what to do with. You could enter all of your selections, allow AwardHacker to conduct its search and then get your options. Then, if you’re interested in one of the results, the site will show you the steps you need to take in order to redeem your points for that award.

There are some downsides to AwardHacker, but thankfully, it’s trying to add new features. For example, after running a search, you won’t be able to see the fuel surcharges and tax information for your award ticket or when there is availability. On the plus side, AwardHacker plans to continue adding more frequent flyer programs to its system to expand search results.
