Finding the ideal flight redemption is easier said than done. Unless you’re incredibly lucky, you’re not going to hit paydirt the first time round. Instead, it’s more likely that you’ll have to play around with many different permutations of dates, carriers, routes and programs before you find what you’re looking for.
Power Award Searching is all about streamlining the award search process, saving precious time and avoiding a whole lot of frustration. In other words- this is how you find better awards, faster.
In this workshop, we’ll deep dive into software like KVS Tool, Award Nexus, Expert Flyer and more. I’ll show you the ins and outs of each, their strengths and weaknesses, their best use cases and how to get the most out of them. By the time we’re done, you’ll know how to automate your award searching, find additional options quickly and improve your chances of landing your dream redemption.

Course Outline: Power Award Searching
Most people default to using an airline’s own website when searching for award space. There’s nothing wrong with this per se, but each site has its drawbacks. Some are slow and buggy. Some don’t have award calendars, some don’t display all their partners online, some show phantom availability.
Moreover, you’ll soon realise that no award search engine is truly comprehensive, and there are options that regular websites won’t put together. And if you have very specific criteria like only wanting a certain cabin product or flight time? What if you need multiple connections, or multiple tickets across programs? Finding exactly what you need is going to be a long and arduous process.
That’s where award searching tools like ExpertFlyer, Award Nexus and KVS come in. These can be very powerful tools for planning your perfect award trip, but they come with steep learning curves and can be intimidating for first timers.
The purpose of this module is to:
- Explain the need for dedicated award search tools
- Help you understand the different award search engines and the pros and cons of each
- Provide a hands-on demonstration and deep dive into the features and use of tools like KVS, Award Nexus, award.flights and ExpertFlyer
- Illustrate use-cases for each of the tools and how you can integrate them into your trip planning
- Teach you how to set up automated award searches, filter-driven searches, seat alerts, manually construct awards, and much more
Attendees will receive further instructions on how to better prepare for this session. Look forward to seeing you there!
