Garudamiles is the frequent flyer program of Garuda Indonesia. To celebrate Indonesia Independence Day, Garudamiles offer 73% discount for miles redemption.

None of International routes will enjoy promotion. Garudamiles only offer miles redemption discount to some domestic routes listed below (with amount of miles needed in economy class/ business class):

Redemption must be done on 17 August 2018 via Garudamiles redemption channel (website, call center, sales office), valid for travel between 17 August 2018 and 15 December 2018.

You can check availability of Garuda Indonesia redemption subclass seat (‘X’ for economy class, ‘O’ for business class) online using Garuda’s own website search engine. However in my opinion their website isn’t really convenient to use. Therefore I suggest you to check availability online using search engine of Air France-KLM Flying Blue, Korean Air SKYPASS, or Delta SkyMiles.

Garudamiles partnered with credit card from many major bank in Indonesia, where you can transfer your points easily into Garudamiles. Some of credit card with good transfer ratio are including Garuda BNI Visa Signature, Garuda Indonesia Citi Card, Citi PremierMiles Card, Standard Chartered MasterCard WorldMiles, and digibank Travel Visa Signature.

Bottom line

The promotion isn’t really attractive due to small amount of domestic routes which will enjoy the promotion. However considering the normal ticket price to some of the routes listed in the promotion can be very expensive, I guess this promotion can be quite worthwhile for some.

Please keep in mind that point transfer process often can take some time. If you want to take advantage of this promotion, I strongly recommend you to call your bank to request point transfer as soon as possible.
