TotallyMoney.com reveal top 10 golf getaways using Airmiles Value Tracker
In a world first, TotallyMoney.com has made it easy to compare how far your Avios points can take you, based on the best value destinations.
Always compare – because prices fluctuate over time, so to be sure that you’re getting the best value from your Avios points you’ll have to consult the Airmiles Value Tracker to see which destinations work for you.

Fancy a weekend on the golf course in a more exotic location than your local club? If you’ve got air miles to use, TotallyMoney.com have launched a tool to ensure you get best value possible from them when booking your next golf getaway. Whilst many Avios points users tend to use their points on a short city break, it may come as a surprise that some flights can offer more than 200 times better value than others.
By analysing average airline pricing and comparing it to the number of points required to purchase return flights, TotallyMoney.com has been able to work out which destinations offer the best value based on the value of 100 Avios points, and how this translates to real value for money.
With options to filter your search, the Airmiles Value Tracker separates destinations according to your interests. So if golf or surfing is your thing, search the top 10 destinations to spend your hard earned miles on, for your next break.
All you need to do is input the amount of air miles you have and select the list you want to see. You’ll be shown a map with the destinations on, what the average cost of a flight is to that destination and how many air miles you’d need to get there.
But while spending Avios on short haul may pay dividends in some cases, it most definitely isn’t a catch-all rule, with some of the worst value for money locations based very close to home, from Manchester and Leeds Bradford, to Paris and Brussels.
Will Becker, Co-founder of TotallyMoney.com comments: “When people are planning on buying flights with their Avios points they often don’t think about value, since the transaction they are making is essentially free.
“Yet, as our calculator clearly shows, not all destinations are offering you the same value for money when bought with points, whether they are ultimately free to fly to or not. If a consumer has their heart set on a destination, better value flights to other places may not be an option.
“But if they are looking for the best time and place to spend their points they are advised to do a little research. The benefits of which are now clear for all to see.”
