We've got 214,000 altitude points and were trying to work out what strategy to undertake to maximise our rewards.

Do we get the travel vouchers from Altitude Travel ($1400) or is it better to convert them to some other product (like fuel) and book the travel direct ie thru flight centre - therefore effectively saving the weekly fuel money and using this to buy travel.

We are wanting to go to Bali.

Thanks!:D

Hi tanyamiller and welcome to AFF.

Unless I'm way off the mark then 214,000 altitude points transfer to 107,000 Qantas FF points.

Without knowing some more details it's hard to comment other than 50,000 QFF points per person (plus taxes) are required ex MEL. It would then be up to you to look at availability for your travel dates and departure city.

It may be worth it and it may not depending upon your travel dates,
flexibility & QFF status. Is there a sale on for when you want to travel OR the other extreme is it school holidays :?:

You need to provide some more info to get much more help than this.

Good luck :!:
