TheTrip.com, an Internet service that helps people make travel arrangements, has created a rewards program with Visa U.S.A.

Travelers who use a Visa card to buy airline tickets earn extra frequent-flier miles. They were tripled in January to get the program started and can be tracked on-line.

The TripMiles Reward program "is the first of its kind on the Internet," said Antoine Toffa, president and chief executive officer of TheTrip.com. Mileage is "by far the favored perk of perpetual travelers."
