Hi all,
I used to travel internationally and stayed with Hilton. The time has flown and I woke up this morning to an email saying I had until October to use 68,000 points.

I am based in Melbourne, is there anything in particular that would be recommended to use these points on? I am open to a weekend away somewhere.

Thanks in advance.

Cheapest option would be 2 nights at DT Melbourne for around 60 000 pts. Otherwise purchase some points to extend the expiry date.

Also, 60,000 points will get 2 nights in Cairns over the next few weeks, for a mini-break in FNQ, at either the Hilton or DoubleTree.

Hi everyone,
Thank you for your advice. My partner has decided she would like to go to NZ for a long weekend to see the snow. Could you recommend any ideas on how best to do this? Am I correct in assuming it would be Queenstown?

Thanks in advance

I can't say I have been to any of the 10K/night Hilton's but I want to. There are a few in KL, one in Kuching and the DoubleTree in Penang is probably the top of my list here.
Thanks! Kuching could be interesting. The Doubletree in Penang hadn't opened yet when I was late there.

Can you transfer them to QF? 60K business class return to Perth is great value on a A330
