    I usually use my points to fly business as this often comes out less than the price of flights in economy and I feel like I get a much better deal. In fact I’m heading to India next month and using the BA Premium AMEX Companion Voucher, I paid just over £1000 for two business class flights. Two economy flights were around £1200. I also wrote a post recently on The Travel Hack comparing this card with the AVIOS cards you use, and concluded that the BA card is better. That said, I actually think it is a good idea to have both because I use my cards for business and would easily spend the £10,000 to get the companion voucher plus the £7K to get the upgrade voucher. Are you still experimenting with hacking Jo?

    Great advice, particularly the points expiration. While travel hacking is not “free” travel, it’s the closest thing that exists. You’ll get hit with the taxes whether you pay full board or not, but the other fees can add up if you’re not paying attention. Good advice!
