Hilton HHonors has initiated a new airline partnership with Garuda Indonesia.
Members that prefer earning points and miles for their Hilton stays can now choose to Double Dip with the Indonesian flag carrier Garuda Indonesia.
You can access Hilton’s web page for partners here.
You must choose Points + Miles Double Dip option and then choose Garuda as the partner airline.
Garuda Indonesia Garuda Mile members earn one mile per USD charged at all Hilton brands except at Hampton Inn, Homewood Suites and Home2 Suites where you can earn maximum of 100 miles per stay.
The base miles earnings after the Double Dip devaluation earlier this year basically suck. It does, however, make sense to double dip with an airline when Hilton HHonors is offering airline specific bonus offers as they often do.
