There is nothing better (in the rewards world) than booking a dream trip on reward points, whether its first class travel and / or luxury accommodation. So towards the end of October 19, I started looking for a rewards credit card with the aim of funding a luxury holiday in 2021 with reward points, plus I wanted to share the road there. After looking what was available, I decided to go for the Virgin Atlantic Reward+ Mastercard, however it was a close call with the British Airways American Express Premium Plus card. Mastercard has a slightly higher acceptance rate and based on my card usage, it tipped it in its favour.
I guess I have a normal-ish spend, i.e. shopping, fuel, food, entertainment and holidays, with the odd business expense thrown in. So, with my Virgin Atlantic Reward+ card in hand, I have decided to catalogue my path to my 2021 luxury reward points holiday with a monthly blog to see what is actually possible and whether it is worth while for ‘Joe Public’ to benefit from this type of card or if they only beneficial to ‘high’ spenders.
