As discussed in the TPG UK Beginners Guide, one of your first steps in earning points and miles should be signing up for accounts with all the loyalty programmes that are relevant to you. Virtually all of these programmes are free to join, and in several cases you’ll begin enjoying perks right away without even earning elite status — though attaining a higher-tier status certainly confers the most benefits.

Below, you’ll find a list of the major airline, hotel and rental car loyalty programmes, along with information on each program’s transfer partners. As you’ll soon learn, the two major transferable point programmes for UK residents (American Express Membership Rewards, and Marriott Bonvoy) are incredibly valuable, offering you a myriad of redemption options thanks to their travel partners.
