As the international border reopens, some Australians are starting to redeem the points they’ve been saving up throughout the pandemic to book overseas trips. But post-pandemic award travel is a bit different. The pandemic has turned award availability on its head, and Australians are also using their points to travel to different places than before.

In episode 74 of the AFF on Air podcast, Matt chats to James Green from Frequent Flyer Solutions about what’s changed for people using their points to book international flights in and out of Australia. Matt also takes a deep dive into some of the arbitrage opportunities to save significant amounts of points by using alternative frequent flyer programs to book flights with Qantas, Virgin and other airlines.

Plus, where can Australians now travel to? Matt explains which states are now open, when the rest are expected to open, and what travellers will need to do before heading interstate.
