Every £10 in clubcard vouchers gives £15 e-voucher to spend on monarch.co.uk.

Personally I was a bit hacked off by the Airmiles to Avios devaluation of my hard earned airmiles and immediately stopped converting Clubcard vouchers to Avios. Now I see this as a good alternative.

Also worth considering is the Clubcard conversion to Virgin Atlantic Flying club miles.

See tesco.com/clu…spx?Ntt=virgin&Ntk=primary&Ntx=mode+matchall&Nr=NOT(P_Product_TypeID:5)&N=4294961747

Every £2.50 in clubcard vouchers gives you 625 Flying club miles.

Also the AUTO OPT-IN option gives you a bonus.

Auto opt in to exchange your current and all future Clubcard vouchers into Flying Club miles. Do this before 29 Feb 2012 and receive 1,000 bonus Flying Club miles. To Auto Opt in without Clubcard vouchers, please call 0808 100 0707.

Was thinking about posting this yesterday. Did a little digging, and for example:

With the Virgin Exchange - 'Economy Seat' return from London/Manchester/Glasgow to Orlando is 45000 miles, which works out to be £72 in Clubcard vouchers. That seems pretty decent if you have the vouchers, since Virgin prices are usually in the range £600-800.

You still have to pay all taxes which are increasing again.

How much you reckon to add on for taxes?

£300+

Just a warning, there are rarely any flights to Florida during school holidays using Virgin Flying Club miles.

Exchanged 80,000+ Virgin Air Miles for Holiday inn points, Prices had very little discount on Flights and Tax's, Fuel, etc on top made it very poor rewards scheme. IMO Virgin have gone downhill over the past few years and only fly with them now when they are competertive.

monarch airlines have awful reviews

Was just going to ask how you got it to £72 and then sort of figured it out, I think?
45000 miles divided by 625 is 72, but the way I read it, it's 72 times £2.50 vouchers
Which is actually £180 in clubcard money, which just isn't worth it when you consider that you've then got to add the taxes

Think I'm right, but please don't be offended if I've missed something somewhere?

I have used Monarch many times and have been very happy with them. Each to their own, of course

Easyjet are considerably worse!!!!! Just wait until you have a problem with your flight then ask yourself was it worth saving a coulpe of quid with EasyJet. Monarch have a decent reputation which I imagine they want to hold onto. Easyjet on the other hand, have no reputation (well only for being rubbish). Only my opinion but if you have a choice between the 2 I know which way I'd go.

Virgin did lots of 50% off mileage redemption offers last year, so if they do it again this year it will be a bargain.

But the taxes and fees so come up to quite a bit.

Absolutely, I agree with you I would prefer Monarch(actually I can think of one even worse), however in the past we have tended to use Easyjet because we had to keep the price down. But if I can now get £15 off of Monarch flights for every £10 of my Clubcard vouchers, I am definitely going to look into that.

That's a good deal, we really want to go to Kenya which is also 45,000 miles - We have about £110 already in vouchers so 1.5 flights paid for

Really happy with that. Cheers.

Don't want to burst anyone's bubble, but the figures are wrong??

45000 miles is £180 worth of clubcard vouchers oO
I can't see any other way of getting to 45000, even with the 1000 opt-in flying club/exchange bonus miles?
There's still the taxes to pay on top of that!

Personally, £180 is a whopping £720 in certain deals elsewhere and that's without factoring in the taxes?

Not looked at Kenya, but Florida is also 45000 miles at present so have looked at that.
On Virgins website, a fortnight flight only on the 8th Feb this year is £455 including the taxes from Gatwick to Orlando.
(There is an argument for the 4336 miles you'd earn off that flight, would have been worth about £17 in clubcard money if you were buying rather than receiving?)
The same date (that's the first one I found for comparison) is 45000 miles + £273.30 in taxes.

Your £180 worth of clubcard vouchers are worth £171.70 on this flight oO
Suppose it's worth it if you're on your own and don't have anything else to spend the vouchers on, but personally just wouldn't go that route.

There's obviously going to be times when it works in your favour, the price is going to be higher on virgin to start with, but then you're going to be struggling to get a miles flight?
28th August for 2 weeks is £541 on virgin or 45000 miles+£280 taxes going the other way (+£180 in clubcard vouchers), again just dates I could actually compare.
This is obviously better value, your £180 clubcard vouchers are worth £261 in savings on this flight.

Yes there are occasions that Virgin reduce the mileage needed to get to certain destinations, but when they do that I've always struggled with availability?

Just trying to point out the downside, hope it helps?
