VOILA's global presence allows members to earn and redeem points across a wide variety of hotels and redemption partners in the VOILA global network. A selection of VOILA's current redemption partners include airline programs such as Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan, TrueBlue by JetBlue, Virgin America Elevate Program, Flying Blue (Air France / KLM), Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards, Virgin Atlantic flyingclub, EarlyReturns Hawaiian Miles, LifeMiles, Iceland Air Saga Club, and US Airways Dividend Miles; retail partners such as Amazon.com, American Express, Multiplus Fidelidade, Smiles, Mango, iTunes, Emaar, iFly Dubai, Ski Dubai, and Thanks Again; and charitable causes such as Kula, Worldreader.org, and Kiva.
