Lisa and her husband both collect Velocity Rewards from Virgin Australia, and she’s sure there’s a clever way to combine their accounts to maximise their benefits.

Europe on a budget
Larry wants to do Europe on a budget but is not keen on roughing it, so Kay looks at some of the options that will help him save money.

When to buy a RTW ticket
Alison would like information on round-the-world fares and Kay is only too happy to share her wisdom.

No more bill shock
Kay offers some advice to Beverley who is worried about bill shock on her upcoming holiday.
