I’m having to make an unexpected trip back to the UK later this month. It is going to be a quick trip home – just two nights - and unfortunately it means I’ll be missing Amy’s birthday.

I looked at flight prices - $1000 return. Yikes!

Thankfully I have saved up some airmiles and even more thankfully Virgin is currently doing an airmile sale so I didn’t have to use them all up.

I have managed to get a return trip home for $375 (you always have to pay the tax on airmile flights apparently) and 23,000 airmiles. Magic. Make sure you always claim the miles when you fly – you never know when you might need them.
