Guys,

From Sydney any ideas on using 90,000 points for a nice relaxing break - anywhere??

Cheers.

It depends what you mean. Is 90k points for one or two people? are you looking for flights only or a combination of flights and accomodation for your 90k points?

There are plenty of places you can get to for that sort of points spend - what do you like? Beach? Or more a mountain man? I can think of heaps of suggestions but a bit more info on what floats your boat would be helpful :D

90,000 points for one person. Only on flights and it can be either beach or mountain. Just somewhere relaxing away from it all.

Thanks. :)

In that case I think you should go to Maui or maybe Hawaii, though definately not Oahu - too busy. That will be 80,000 points from Sydney.

My first choice was going to be Tahiti, but you can't get an award flight there anymore on Qantas (you're talking Qantas??)

Other than that you could go somewhere in Asia, but everywhere in Asia doesn't seem all that relaxing to me - too many people.

Hawaii is cheaper at 72,000 after the change. You can also consider...

City 'Points B4' 'Points After 25 May'
Wellington 30000 36000
Auckland 30000 36000
Ho Chi Minh 50000 60000
Bangkok 50000 60000
HK 50000 60000
Shanghai 50000 72000
Tokyo 80000 72000
Seoul 80000 72000
Honolulu 80000 72000
LA 80000 96000

Danielh, that's pretty hard to read. Did you know you can use the 'code' BB.. with a fixed font table.

Code:
City        'Points B4'  'Points After 25 May'
Wellington      30000        36000
Auckland        30000        36000
Ho Chi Minh     50000        60000
Bangkok         50000        60000
HK              50000        60000
Shanghai        50000        72000
Tokyo           80000        72000
Seoul           80000        72000

Transfer them to me and I will give you 0.01111 cents per point. 90,000 * 0.01111 = A$1000

Russ - this is what I have done.

I wait for Qantas to offer special point discount flights. I live in Perth. In the last 24 months I have been to Hong Kong for 25,000 points - awesome place - well worth the visit and in June last year, took a flight to Japan and bought a rail pass and travelled this amazing country - totally underestimated in terms of tourist value. It cost me 50,000 points, but every now and then Qantas offer special flights up to Tokyo for 35,000 points.
Cheers
Bernie
