I have accumulated plenty of Velocity points and we are starting to plan to use them.
After a cruise next year we will end up in Nth China and I have been checking out availability for Beijing-Singapore-Sydney on Singapore Airlines.
I can get 2 J tickets on Velocity for 92000 each plus about $50.
I have also checked Krisflyer and can get 2 first class for under 100,000 Krisflyer points (but I can’t work out what the taxes will be).
I have about 150,000 Westpac and ANZ points that I can turn ( @ 2-1) into 75K Krisflyer points so I would need to convert around 160K Velocity over to Krisflyer to book the tickets. So I guess this cost in total is equivalent to 235K Velocity points plus tax for 1st Class vs. 184K plus $100 for Business.
Have I worked this out correctly?
How do I find out what the taxes would be as I cant see them when I check on Krisflyer?
Any other advice?
