1.1. Membership Status
The Journey Miles issue a number of different kinds of cards which identify the member’s miles status. The respective status is generally governed by the number of points earned within a specified period. After that specified period has elapsed, the counting of the miles starts again. Depending on the tier of membership, different requirement may apply in order to obtain a status. Different Benefits are associated with each status. The nature, extent and duration of these benefits are published in The Journey Adventures communication channels and can be viewed there.
The basis of the calculation for The Journey Miles program is the number of travel days that the individual has travelled with The Journey Adventures and has been credited to the account. The miles can only be used for the purpose expressly specified in the Terms & Conditions and any additional program documents or what is based on the communication channel of the program.
2.2. Earning Miles
It is possible to earn miles as soon as the member commences travelling with The Journey Adventures. Miles can only be credited to the member’s individual mileage account for services the member has used personally. The person who receives the bill is irrelevant in this case.

Members can check the current balance in their mileage account via their personal online account by entering card number and PIN. In addition, members who actively use The Journey Miles system to a specified extent will receive regular information on their current account balance, providing the member has registered to receive The Journey Miles online newsletters. Newsletters may not be sent if Miles & More generally provides access to the account summaries solely in the online mileage account. Duplicate or replacement account statements cannot be provided.
