If it's hundreds (low hundreds) then it is worth a punt.. not thousands..Y'all are braver than me using cash for VA fares.
Given the reduced flight schedules, they have to have sufficient pax numbers to make them viable (made more difficult with COVID spacing), so fares need to reflect revenue and costs.I've been looking at flights for August, they are far from cheap. In fact they are some of the most expensive I've ever seen.
Is it possible to use travel credits as part payments against these type of bookings?
FWIW, it seems like you can't use Future Flight Credit (the new Travelbank for old cancellations) on fares searched with a promo code.
There's currently plenty of availability for Future Flight Credits across all fare groups on the dates I'm searching though, including the current 20 Year Anniversary sale. So it means paying $129 in Travelbank credit rather than $118+surch on card for the same Getaway fare SYD-MEL.
