To use Chase Sapphire Reserve to book travel, visit the Chase Ultimate Rewards page, log in to your online account and click the “Earn / Use” tab. Then, click the “Travel” icon and choose a redemption option from the menu at the top of the page. Cardholders can redeem Ultimate Rewards points for airfare, hotel stays, car rentals, cruises and more. The number of points available to redeem will be listed at the top of the page.
Once you’ve selected the travel options you want, enter your name and, where required, the personal info for all passengers on the itinerary. You can also include a frequent flyer or hotel loyalty program account number. Verify the information is correct, and you’ll directed to a separate page to pay for your trip with Ultimate Rewards points, a Chase Sapphire Reserve or a combination of the two. Enter the number of points you’d like to apply, if any. If there’s not enough points to cover the travel costs, you will need to enter your Sapphire Reserve card info to cover the difference. Review the payment details, check the box stating you agree to the terms and click “Complete Booking.” You’ll receive a confirmation e-mail soon after you finish booking your trip.
You’ll earn 3 points / $1 spent on travel and dining and 1 point / $1 on all other purchases. Points are worth 1.5 cents apiece when you use them to book travel through the Ultimate Rewards portal. You can also transfer points to a number of airline and hotel loyalty rewards programs at a 1:1 ratio.
