Save 30% on Club Vistara Points redemption this March

By | March 7, 2019

While a lot of us are aware of the fact that award flights like JPMiles redemptions on Jet Airways Business Class gives a great value for points, not many are aware that even Vistara’s CV Points are equally good in all aspects.

Though, there aren’t much CV points earning opportunities out there, as there are only few Vistara credit cards that could get you CV points. Also the points transfer on other credit cards don’t make sense to most either. So, this is not usually spoken much.

But now you’ve an opportunity to redeem at 30% lesser points than usual. Here’s the offer that i got today from Vistara,

Offer Details

  • Offer valid for redemption of Award Flights between 7th March 2019 and 31st March 2019.
  • This offer is valid for select destinations for bookings and travel between the said dates.
  • Valid across all cabin classes on Vistara network
  • Limited seats are available under this offer
  • In the event of re-issuance of Award Flight after the offer period, regular redemption fares shall be applicable
  • All offers are subject to change without notice and may not be combined with any other offer and have no cash value

Below are the list of destinations & the CV Points required.

Given the ease of availability & redemption, I booked BOM-DEL & DEL-MAA (13K Points+Rs.700) on premium economy recently and got both the tickets upgraded to business class using the Vistara one-Class upgrade vouchers that came with CV Gold membership via Axis Vistara Infinite card.

The redemption experience was pretty good & easy. So 30% lower CV points offer is worth availing, if you fly the above routes.

Bottomline

While the destinations on 30% offer are not so popular ones, Chennai-Port Blair sector definitely gives great value for points.

I checked for the rate on Premium economy / March 20th / MAA-IXZ and it costs Rs.7999 which means you get ~Rs1.5/CV Point. So you’ve about 20 days to make your plans for Andaman πŸ™‚

That all aside, i wish Vistara raises the point earn rate on their credit cards, like 8 Points/Rs.200 (instead of: 6 Points) on their Vistara Infinite card.

    This is indeed a great option if your travel is last minute.
    In November, due to an emergency I had to postpone my travel from Varanasi to Delhi by a day, at the nth hour.
    Last minute, weekend fares to Delhi in economy stood at 18K per pax. We were two of us.
    During a similar promotion I got them for 2800 CV points per pax plus miniscule taxes…
    One of my most memorable use of FF miles/points.

      Hi S&S,
      I believe Vistara has one of the worst CV redemption schemes. I have been trying to book DEL-GOI 3 weeks in advance & still no luck.
      Compare that with Jet, could get hold of a business class (via JP miles) 2 days in advance.
      Good to know, you have had a good experience.

    I thought you downgraded to signature. Also this offer comes out every month with reduced sectors πŸ™‚

      Pardon my limited knowledge of CV rule-book, but can you upgrade redemption tickets on UK using vouchers?

        Yes, you can. I was able to grab the airport upgrade even in the busy BOM-DEL sector πŸ™‚

    Vistara gives this offer once in two months. Last year during the second half of the year, it was almost every month. But the routes offered may not be the ones we prefer.

      i got one with my sbi prime for a year.they charged me around 1800/- for it but honestly their fineprint is patchy.they promise card protection on all the cards i hold but never asked me to register those with them.luckily never got to avail the facility .and nowdays since all descent cards provide theft cover so i dumped it.
