READER MAIL : Using Miles to get to Australia a.k.a. “Help, British Airways are sh*t!”

This email popped into my inbox this week and I thought I'd answer it publicly since it's the type of question that I get asked a lot. Hopefully it give you some insight into my thought processes and the flexibility required to get long haul premium cabin flights booked for as little as possible.

About this site

Welcome to TheLuxuryTraveller.com, a thorough and extensive database of my travel reviews.

I fly over 100,000 miles per year in First and Business class and have reviewed the majority of the world's top onboard products for this blog. If you think that premium cabin travel is out of reach, read on to learn the tricks I use to fly around the world.

I also love visiting luxury hotels and resorts. I have reviewed a wide variety running the range from Park Hyatts and Ritz Carltons bookable with hotel points, right through to some of the world's most exclusive brands like Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental and Aman.

Finally, I am a firm believer in the fact that the purest expression of a culture is in its cuisine. I love to eat and have written at length about some of my favourite restaurants around the globe.

If you want to explore our planet in style, you've come to the right place
