    Travel Insurance and Emergency Expenses

    I provided the insurer with the value of the points, what it cost to buy directly form Etihad's website however the points cost me nothing and are not sellable for a monetary value. The cancelled flight cost 34,000 points. As per the insurers PDS they cover "only those reasonable expenses over...

    Travel Insurance and Emergency Expenses

    Thanks for the response and to clarify a few things; I did not claim for lost frequent flyer points for the cancelled flight as they will be refundable however I am still awaiting refund. They were Etihad points with flights booked on ANA. The insurer covers same cabin class so no issue booking...

    Travel Insurance and Emergency Expenses

    First of all this is not COVID related. I read through all the threads and couldn't really find someone with a similar experience so interested to know if any one has experience with type of situation. It relates to a flight I had cancelled, booked with rewards points, due to Typhoon Hagibis in...

    Qantas Points with Afterpay

    Ultimately Afterpay will likely end up with credit checks however the Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) Sector is really Buy Now Pay Smarter. Many people don't need or shouldn't have a credit card and I think points earn for BNPL is the final frontier in credit cards falling away for the mass over credit...

    Qantas improves conditions on vouchers

    So international flights are being cancelled to the end of July, Trans-Tasman June, so not sure how not waiving the change fees from 1 May is going stop people just waiting for refunds for flights during this period. Pretty stupid decision if they were trying to retain cash and get as many...

    [I need] Qantas Points - Fast

    I find the purchases from wine take at the minimum four days now. My last two purchases was 5 days as per below then another three purchases before that, all this year, took 4 days. If you can't wait and need them now, you will probably have to pay for them which is instant, however it looks...

    Is it Time to transfer/withdraw points from Velocity?

    The debt holders will control the company now, points holders are likely unsecured creditors. Depending on which way new equity holder/s go, you couldn't buy any easier immediate loyalty by trying to retain as many frequent flyers as you could, so in simple terms I would be limiting redemption...

    Global Qantas Double Status Credits Offer (Book 20-26 Feb 2020; Fly: 28 Feb 2020-14 Feb 2021)

    Hi, I think I have a curly one, does anyone know how you work out the value of a fare remaining for a multi city trip that has already commenced. Just wondering if I am better of changing the dates over taking a credit voucher. I had booked CBR-MEL-SYD-DPS return under DSC and flew out on the...

    Global Qantas Double Status Credits Offer (Book 20-26 Feb 2020; Fly: 28 Feb 2020-14 Feb 2021)

    They did the promo for revenue so if they want to leave it on the table because their website can't handle traffic I will spend with another airline as they already wasted my time tonight, I had around $9-10k I was looking at spending. The argument it has been open for days is not really valid...

    Platinum Reward Seat Guarantee

    Hi all, just trying to work out how many points would be needed per ticket for a Platinum guaranteed family redemption. Say I was wanting to book Sydney - Phuket, I would most likely end up on an SQ and Silk Air combo. Based on the below terms from the points tables, I think it would cost 35,000...

    Garuda airlines award with partner airline

    I myself have never been able to book any flight with Garuda through Etihad Guest, even if availability for Garuda is showing through Delta and Expert Flyer. There clearly has to be a problem.
