I hope you’re well.
I wonder if you can help my fiance and I? We live in Sydney and plan to fly to London to get married in August 2017. We’ve been following the blog a while and have saved up about 462,000 Qantas FF points between us and wondered how we can best use them to be able to fly business or first class for our wedding trip? Ideally we’re looking for the best possible experience that our points can afford and we’re also happy to pay a reasonable amount on top if the points won’t cover it. Alternatively if our points won’t cut it we could always fly the return leg in luxury and fly out economy.
At the moment I have a ANZ and NAB frequent flyer card which I have had a few years so happy to sign up for another card if we need some extra points to achieve our goal!
We are heading to Italy on 31st August for the wedding, so ideally we want to be in London a week before hand (maybe around 24th August) and we want to return to Sydney around the 15th September, but can be a bit flexible on dates.
I’ve never used points to book a flight and having played around it got a bit confusing and there didn’t seem to be too many business/first options so thought we would reach out to the master for some help!
Any help you can give to help us have an awesome wedding travel experience would be much appreciated!
