- It is hard to speak to an agent that both speaks English and fully comprehends the TACA Distancia mileage program and its partner awards. Be prepared to try multiple times until you find someone competent!
- According to most of the representatives, mileage purchases expire 2 years from the date of purchase, unless you fly on a paid TACA ticket!
- Dansdeals.com will not be responsible for any problems with using purchased TACA Distancia miles, so please double-check all TACA policies before making a purchase!
TACA Airlines (aka Take A Chance Airlines) is selling miles this month for half off the normal 2.5 cents/mile rate.
Instead of $50 for 2,000 miles, it is just $25.
They are award partners with Iberia and United Airlines.
What is intriguing about this is there lucrative redemption chart.
You can fly anywhere within North America for just 25,000 miles in the low season (February, March, April, May, October, November) or 30,000 miles in the high season (January, June, July, August, September, December, and Easter season).
Sample low season travel rates when purchasing miles:
NYC-Maui, Hawaii: Via United: 25,000 miles (about $312)
NYC-Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: Via United: 35,000 miles (about $437)
NYC-Australia: Via United: 75,000 miles (about $937)
LAX-Tel Aviv: Via Iberia: (TACA Low season usually includes Pesach/Sukkos holiday seasons!) 75,000 miles (about $937)
Good Luck! If anyone does use this for a ticket I’d love to hear about it!
