I don't know about travel companies but you should get an Airmiles/frequent flyer card with your prefered airline. 8 to 10 times a year will get you a free flight in no time.

In your case I would say that it would be worth contacting a large travel agency such as trailfinder, travelbag etc and explaining your circumstances. There are plenty listed in the back of the Sunday papers. I would have thought that they could give you better advice and help than trying with the airlines directly.


I would then get loyalty cards for all the major airline groups (One World, Star Alliance etc) and register them with the travel agent and you will soon be racking up the points!

If you end up traveling with different airlines because of cost and availability issues it would be best to get a CC that gives good miles that are not restricted. Use the CC and the airlines frequent flier programs to get the best bang for your buck.

Good luck with the house, it can be fun yet stressful at the same time.

The key thing is to book all your tickets UK-BKK-UK, and not BKK-UK-BKK, if cost is a factor. I'm assuming you'll be paying part/all of the tickets yourself, not all company-travel, and that you'll know your definite required-travel-dates when you book ?


Then find out which airline(s) have good connections from Aberdeen, for example don't Emirates fly to EDI or GLA ?, and ask them who their main UK-consolidation agents are, and discuss your situation with them.


On heavily-discounted totally inflexible tickets, you'll maybe only get 25% of the normal airmiles, but they do still add-up, so leadpencil's advice about getting & using their frequent-flyer loyalty-card makes good sense !


See also the thread, further down the page, on flights ABZ-LGW with onward-connections to BKK, for some ideas on other routes out of ABZ ! Seems that you're not the only BM in your situation.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
