Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The new HFP chat thread – Thursday 21st May

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

We have decided to run this new daily chat thread on Head for Points.

Historically, the daily ‘Bits’ articles were the defacto repository for random comments and questions.  It is unlikely that the news flow will be so big over the next few weeks that we will need many ‘Bits’ articles, however.

The comments under this article are where you should post questions about travel and, indeed, anything else on your mind.  At this tricky time, and given that many of you are stuck at home self-isolating, we want the HFP community to have a place to chat.

Please only comment under the main articles on the site if your comment is directly related to the topic of the article.  This has long-term benefits as its keeps the commentary relevant for people who read those articles in the future.

By default, HFP shows the last page of comments under the article.  If you want to see the first page of comments and read them all from beginning to end in order, click here: https://www.headforpoints.com/2020/05/21/the-new-hfp-chat-thread-thursday-21st-may/comment-page-1.  The page will refresh with this article but the comments will now show the first page and not the last page.

We will continue to monitor how this is working.  Let’s see how it goes.  Take care!

    Can you transfer VA points between accounts?
    Thanks

    • Dezbez says:

      Not without paying handsomely I’m afraid. £75 per 10k I think is the going rate! They don’t have quite the flexibility of Avios with household accounts and friends and family

    • Charlieface says:

      They will let you make one booking using points from two accounts

  • DaveL says:

    Avios group limited has become IAG Loyalty. Did we know about this?! Are we likely to see any bigger changing such as the renaming of avios points ?!

  • Baresi says:
