Keen to know people’s opinions on our upcoming travel arrangement.
In rough numbers, I reckon we have spent around 1 million Velocity points and maybe around ?$5k on taxes for an upcoming trip to Europe via Bali and Singapore. All reward flights, mostly business class, combination of Virgin and SingAir with the odd Qantas and Jetstar connection. Travel in Sept.
Given the current COVID-19 situation, I don’t know whether it would make sense to cancel the flights and get refunded most (if not all) of the points/taxes, or hold out to see if the situation improves in the next 3 months before deciding. And if in the meantime VA goes under (god forbid) would I be better off with the booked flights, or Velocity points in the bank?
So my question is - stick or twist?
No right or wrong answers, just keen on opinions.
