Tip 1

Buy Hilton rewards points when they go on sale with a 100% bonus (0.5 cents each) and pay the equivalent of US$475 for a night at the Conrad Maldives (usually US$1K+)

Tip 2

Enhance Tip 1 by signing up for the AMEX KrisFlyer Ascend to get instant Hilton Silver status, which give you the 5th night free on redemptions. This brings down the cost of a 5 night stay at the Conrad Maldives to US$380 a night

Tip 3

Able to travel on short notice? Snag a KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escape award to Male and pay only 25.9K miles for a round trip flight.

Tip 1

It’s tough to find award space between Singapore and New York on Singapore Airlines. If you’re having difficulty, try using KrisFlyer’s Star Alliance partner award search function. You’ll be able to find options on Air China, ANA and EVA Air

Tip 2

Hotel rooms in New York, especially Manhattan, can be extremely expensive. Use Hotwire and Priceline to book “opaque inventory”- hotel rooms where you don’t know the name of the hotel until after you pay. Don’t worry, you can specify neighbourhood and star level. I once got the W New York for US$150 during Christmas time!

Tip 3

If you decide to buy a revenue ticket, use the UOB PRVI Miles card and get up to 10 miles per dollar on selected airline bookings made on Expedia and UOB Travel. Be sure to make your booking before 31 March!

Tip 1

Maybe you’re intending to do a one way drive from Melbourne to Sydney, but find the one-way fees are killing you. Consider a service like TransferCar, which gives you a free car rental between two locations! You get a certain number of free days to cover the distance, and can add on additional days for a small fee

Tip 2

Find the cheapest petrol prices with an app like Petrol Spy- just tell them where you are, and they’ll list the lowest cost places to fill up

Tip 3

Remember that the Standard Chartered Visa Infinite rewards you with 3 miles per dollar on overseas spending, so long as you spend at least $2K in total for that particular month
