    If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

    If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

    We just phoned Trial finders and bought air miles, I think with Quantas - not the best I know however we wanted to do it cheap plus we need to stop off in south Africa for a month so we bought enought airmiles from manchester - London - Johannesburg - Perth £800 we thought this was very reasonable. Also breaks the flights into 2 very nice 10 hour flights. Done SA on the very cheap before so used to going cattle class. Hubby travels alot with work business class so he will really feel the pain!

     

    Good Luck

    Hi,

     

    We hold a Tesco club card and through a lot of searcing now have enough airmiles for 1 free return flight to OZ.

     

    You need to do a lot of investigating to ascertin who Tesco have offers with for example Tesco had a deal with powergen (i think) and if you changed provider you got 10,000.00 club card points.

     

    We applied for a Marriott credit card spent £40.00 on petrol got another 10,000.00 points and cancelled the card afterwards.

     

    It might seem like a lot of messing about and it does take time but if you have the time then look into it. If push comes to shove and we need to get back to the UK wheh we move then at least we have enought for a free flight.

     

    If anybody wants any info on this send me a PM and i'll let you know who we used to get the points.

     

    Cheers.

        What a great idea. It is a shame they aren't extending it to UK/Australia
        The airline is now giving a “fly now pay later” option with the cost spread over up to five years, using payment provider PayFort, which accepts payment plans from three months to 60 months.
        “We understand travel can be a significant expense, especially for families and those on a tight budget,” Justin Warby, Etihad Airways vice president for digital strategy and innovation, said in a statement. “This new initiative is a great way for people to book and enjoy their travel without having to worry about paying in one large sum.”
        Warby also said this option would be an opportunity to upsell premium options, like first class tickets or private suites, to customers who would otherwise not be able to afford it.
        “When we were designing this product, we were really looking at how we can assist those low-to-medium income travelers and families,” he said. “Of course, spreading the payment over a period of months is also a great way to indulge in premium cabins.”
        Etihad is the first in its region to offer this type of credit. However, the option is only available to customers who are residents of UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt.

        Hi guys
        Can anyone help with this question (as I can't find anything on the Etihad website!).  We are moving from Manchester to Brisbane on a PR visa in September 2017.  We have 42,000 guest miles with Etihad.  Ideally I want to use some of these to take an extra suitcase(s) with us but I've been told that we won't know how many miles we need for an extra bag until we book the flight and have a booking reference.
        We are sending the majority of our stuff over by sea in a movecube in the next few weeks and if I can't use the air miles to take the extra case I will obviously need to factor in sending more stuff in the movecube. Why can't Etihad just state an extra suitcase is 30,000 miles or whatever it is!! Does anyone know the answer?  We have a 3 year old child so the idea was to take a suitcase of toys so she has familiar things around her when we arrive - if not it's a 3.5 month wait before it arrives by sea.
        Thanks!
