Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The new HFP chat thread – Monday 25th 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:  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!

    Did you call YouFirst? They can re-book this for you, you are entitled to re-booking in your original travel class.

      That was to Pauline, not davvero!

      • Pauline says:

        Hi Anna / Rob
        Will try You First but as My 241 expires (with the 6 months extension) in jan 2020 I am not hopeful.

  • ChrisA says:

    Ever had that moment when you were going to do a ‘double dip’ transaction, but forgot to do one of the ‘dips’ (click through) which has caused a loss of a few k avios, and feel a deep sense of loss for a few mins?!

  • JustinJ says:

    Do we think BA are likely to extend the BA 241 voucher by another 6 months?
    Had my flight to Canada refunded, got the Avios and the voucher back but it only extends to November. Not sure that all countries will be fully open by then?
