    Avios - is my saving any good?

    I need to book a 1 way ticket to Dubrovnik.

    It costs £170

    I have some Avios points, around 29k.

    BA website says use 13,750 of them and save £75.

    Is this worth it?? Around 0.55 pence per point?

    Again not sure if this helps but if you get the late flight on the 19th with easyjet its currently £96 unfortunately the time you want to go is the height of the season good luck on what you do boy its going to be roasting over there on those dates

    Thanks, I'm meeting my mum there on the 20th so taking account of the extra night in hotel and £20 odd luggage excess it's not really worth it for me, appreciate your efforts...... roll on the sun

    yes it's a bit hot for me too but my mum is invited to wedding in Italy the following week so I figured I'd work in a trip to Dubrovnik first as it's a place I've never been before and looks beautiful, booked my mums tickets from Edinburgh for £75 so paying an extra £100 is a nuisance but I'll soon get over it:)
