My partner, myself and our 3-year-old (we’re from Darwin, NT) have been saving Velocity and Qantas points since January of this year. So far we have accumulated close to 200,000 Qantas points and 350,000 Velocity points. We have never redeemed any points before so this will be the first. I also have 1 free domestic return flight courtesy of my AMEX Velocity Platinum card. And I have two 120 Virgin Flight Voucher ($240 in total) from my Virgin High Flyer Card and my partner’s Virgin Flyer Credit Card.
It has been our dream to travel to London, Paris, Prague and Rome coming from Darwin. We would like to go in September 2019 in time for my partner’s birthday. I don’t think our points will be enough to should all of our flights so we’re prepared to shell out if need be.
The question is, what’s the best approach when redeeming frequent flyer points to travel from Darwin, NT to London, Paris, Praque and Rome in September 2019?
Is it a good approach to ask the service of companies such as flight centre to help us out in redeeming all of our points and planning and booking our flights?
Any advice from you guys is deeply appreciated.
