    Where are you looking to go?

    Mostly Asia. We have a direct BA flight or can take Qatar Airways with a stopover in Dubai.
    During school holidays, it can easily be 1000£ per adult or 3500£ for a family of four when booked few months in advance.

    Pre COVID, it used to be half this and was manageable. Now it’s really hurting, so thinking of playing the points game!

    With only 70k avios and four of you, the best value you’re probably going to get is a RFS trip in Club Europe. While these are generally not considered the best use of avios and 241 vouchers, they can be excellent value if cash prices are high, especially if your kids are at school and you need to travel in the holidays.

    Thanks. This might work as we need to travel during school holidays.
    But will I be able to use RFS, 241, and kids tickets in a single booking/ transaction ?

    Thanks Toscin. I am also not sure about the Household account.
    I have created one with all the members of my family to ensure that I don’t loose my kids Avios.
    But will it be an issue while redeeming if one adult has say 70000 Avios and others have just couple of thousand Avios?

    I meant Avios does not* cover Taxes, fees and carrier charges, which is the highest (more than the fare) in our case.

    Get in touch with their live chat and explain the situation. They will check if your number has been registered and penalty charge triggered.
    They are very helpful and will sort it for you.

    I contacted them last time I missed the 24/48 hour window to make the online payment. Since I contacted them, they just took the 5£ from me and asked me to contact them after I receive the PCN so that they can waive it off.
