I’m hoping to get some advice - I’ve been searching around but cannot seem to find the best answers.
I’m moving to Europe within a week and will be keeping my Amex Explorer so I can continue to earn points (confirmed international purchases still retain 2p/$) and don’t believe I’ll be able to get a points credit card where I’m moving to. I already have a decent points balance as well.
My question is - what is your advice on maximising the points for domestic flights within Europe? Should I stick to using one airline (non Ryan Air, EasyJet, etc) that has a frequent flyer program but higher airfare cost (Air Italia, Air Berlin, etc) or just try to find whichever airline I can transfer the points to, depending on which country I travel to? Or do you have better ideas and think I should be using them for hotels or something else?
Thanks in advanced!
