Difficult conundrum. My dream is to fly around the world in business class, but I don’t know where (very open to seeing anywhere) and don’t know when., and we’ve never booked with points before. We each have around 350,000 QFF points.
Two questions –
I’ve read that for 280,000 QFF points, that buys you a business round the world ticket. I assume this is the ‘best’ option out there provided you book pretty much a year in advance? Does the ‘point cost’ rise at all, or is 280,000 the standard?
For someone who enjoys holiday planning, but lacks the time to search high and low for availability, what is a low-cost alternative? If say, you have a dream itinerary, and rough dates which you are available for travel, how far would Qantas customer service go in helping you ‘join up the pieces’?
Ideally, we would be travelling to Cuba next March/April – and would love to do a big trip (say 6 weeks, in business, with points) incorporating Cuba. Off the top of my head (in no particular order), Australia > Santiago > Mexico City > Cuba > Canada (flexible as to where) > Europe (flexible as to where > South Africa (Cape Town) > Australia
- How likely, being now July, would it be to be able to book the above (or similar) trip on points for March/April next year?
I realise I’ve asked a lot in this post, but appreciate any advice!
