I've got the BA companion voucher and my partner and I are planning to use it to travel to Cape Town next year.
I have only 66000 avios at the moment and can easily use those to get economy tickets. I would like to try and book premier economy tickets for this trip but that costs 75000 avios. also I should be able to garner another 9000 points over the next few months but don't want to lose out on the tickets for the dates currently available.
So here's the question:
1. Would you advise me to go ahead and book my economy tickets and try and upgrade later perhaps with avios or cash , not sure which would be cheaper. ?
2. OR I take the risk and wait for a few months and then book the premier economy because it may not be possible to upgrade later ?
hope you understand my dilemma.
Thanks in advance.
