Best ways to redeem Avios

In my experience, Qatar Airways sets the standard when it comes to Business Class travel; offering great seats, airport lounges, food and overall Business Class experience.

Additional note: Qatar Airways does not pass on fuel surcharges for award bookings on its own flights, however, the airline charges an additional “booking fee” per segment. This means that, if you’re flying to Europe in Business Class, you will be paying around S$300 each way (2 segments).

Should you convert credit card miles/points to Avios?

The usual rule-of-thumb applies: Only convert your miles/points if you have plans to use them in the near future.

If you already have plans to fly in the Qatar Airways Business Class in the coming months, this is a no-brainer. Be sure to check for award availability on qatarairways.com before committing.

Also, remember that Qatar Airways Avios can also be transferred freely to British Airways Executive Club at a 1:1 ratio.

Bottom line

Qatar Airways is offering members 30% bonus Avios on credit card miles/points conversions. This is a great time to burn those miles/points from your Citi cards!

Be sure to initiate your transfers early, so that you will not miss out on the bonus if there are any delays with the conversion. As this offer is ending on the 31st of May, I recommend initiating the conversion by the 15th of May, to be extra safe.
