Why Transfer Miles to Another Member?

We have given our members a special opportunity to transfer miles as a gift to a fellow Lotusmiles member. Both the giver and the receiver must be Lotusmiles members.

Transfer fees:

  • VND 225,000 for 1,000 miles and administration fee is VND 225,000 per transaction (within Vietnam)
  • USD 10 for 1,000 miles and the administration fee is USD 10 per transaction (outside Vietnam)

Example: An award ticket for the itinerary Hanoi - Hochiminh city - Hanoi requires 24,000 miles. A member has 22,300 miles and needs 1,700 miles more. The member can receive 2,000 miles from another Lotusmiles member. Excess miles (300 miles) will be added to the recipient’s account, but will not calculate as qualifying miles. The recipient has to pay the amount of USD 30, which consists of:
