    Any suggestions would be great - I'll be closing my gold card soon to avoid the annual fee. I'm based in Scotland and mostly travel short haul for leisure, so flying with avios doesn't tend to be that convenient for me.

    I'm collecting and using IHG points. I've got 13k Hilton points (but collecting far more slowly) and no Radisson. I've got 15k virgin miles. Or with this small number of left over points, am I best just turning to Amazon vouchers?

    If you're going to build up the Virgin balance for use at some future point, I'd probably send them there.

    But, for more immediate value I'd transfer most/all of them to Hilton.

    20k Hilton Points is enough for a stay at quite a few UK city centre and airport Hamptons - not glamorous, but can easily save you £100+ of hard cash if you need to stay on a busy night.

    If you're intending to travel with Virgin in the future I'd transfer the points there, otherwise as above - transfer to Hilton
