Marriott Bonvoy Airline Transfer Partners
Of all the transferable points programs, Marriott Bonvoy easily provides the most airline transfer partners. You can transfer Marriott Bonvoy points to most of these partners at a 3:1 ratio, but some transfer at a different rate — so be aware of that before submitting a transfer!
