Earning Miles

 

HOW TO EARN MILES

Earn SAA Voyager Miles at an accelerated rate when flying on SAA operated flights*, our members earn 1 Mile for every R1.60 spent exclusively on South African Airways. SAA Voyager members can furthermore earn Miles by flying with 35 airline partners, including the Star Alliance global network, and more than 20 non airline partners in categories ranging from travel-related to lifestyle, retail, property, petroleum and financial services.

SAA and Star Alliance Miles count towards Tier status.

Always ensure that you quote your unique SAA Voyager membership number during the booking process or at point of sale, in order for your Miles to track systematically.

Kindly keep your original boarding pass and a copy of your e-ticket receipt or original invoices for non-airline partners until Miles reflect on your Mileage Summary. Documentation for missing Miles claims must be submitted 30 days before expiry of the required time frame for the relevant airline or partner. Miles claims not automatically loaded for fuel purchases must be submitted within 48 hours of transaction.
