SPG Partnership with Aegean Gets Stronger + Adds Great Gold Benefits

Written by Charlie

SPG and Aegean have upgraded their partnership to now let members use miles to book SPG hotels in Greece. They have also given many coupons to Aegean Gold members!

I have written a lot about Aegean Airlines, the airline of Greece and constant winner of the Regional European airline award. Last year, they formed a partnership with SPG that opens up some great opportunities with Aegean’s friendly award chart. Today, they have made this partnership even stronger with the ability to use your miles to book hotel rooms in Greece – and a little something special for Aegean Gold members.

Redeem Aegean Miles at SPG Hotels in Greece

SPG and Aegean

Of course, you can redeem your Starpoints for SPG hotels anywhere in the world, but it is nice to have the option to use other currencies as well. Not only that, but if you use your Aegean miles to book SPG hotels in Greece, you can book rooms with miles that you may not be able to book with Starpoints directly.

The Aegean mile rates at SPG hotels

There are a number of SPG hotels in Greece now (click on each one to see the point requirements) that you can book with Aegean miles:

You will need to check and compare to see what will give you the best redemption rates, but it will likely come down to the miles you have with Aegean vs the points you have with SPG. The hotel award charts are broken down by seasons so you could get a very good redemption value depending on when you go!

To book these awards, you will need to sign-in to your account (here) and then scroll to the bottom to Use Miles. Then, select Non-Air Partner awards and select the property you want. If you do not have the miles, you will not be able to continue past that point for the requested property.

Benefits for Aegean Miles+Bonus Gold Members

They have also added some benefits for Aegean Gold members with this deeper partnership. These are available as vouchers in your Miles+Bonus account and are different for each property. The expiration date is tied to your elite expiration date (November 24, 2016) and you can get things from food vouchers to spa vouchers, upgrades, free internet, complimentary 4th night and more.

This could be really nice if you have upcoming travel to Greece and you want to get the most out of your stay at a SPG hotel in Greece! With many properties available, you should be able to get something to help you get more value out of your Aegean Gold status. To get an overview of your Gold benefits at the SPG hotels, check this page and click on Gold Benefits for each property.


Whenever travel programs add benefits and strengthen partnerships for their customers, it is a good thing. I am happy to see this expanded partnership between SPG and Aegean as both are loyalty programs that I am very active with. I am looking forward to using some of these Gold vouchers at SPG hotels in the future!
