My partner, myself and our 3-year-old have been saving Velocity and Qantas points since January of this year. So far we have accumulated close to 200,000 Qantas points and 350,000 Velocity points. We have never redeemed any points before so this will be the first. I also have 1 free domestic return flight courtesy of my AMEX Velocity Platinum card. And I have two 120 Virgin Flight Voucher ($240 in total) from my Virgin High Flyer Card and my partner’s Virgin Flyer Credit Card.
It has been our dream to travel to London, Paris, Prague and Rome coming from Darwin, NT. We would like to go in September 2019 in time for my partner’s birthday. I don’t think our points will be enough to shoulder all of our flights so we’re prepared to shell out if need be.
The question is, what’s the best approach when redeeming frequent flyer points to travel from Darwin, NT to London, Paris, Prague and Rome in September 2019?
Is it good to get the service of companies such as flight centre to help us out in redeeming all of our points, free return flight, flight vouchers and planning and booking our flights?
Any advice from you guys is deeply appreciated.

Flight Centre won't do bookings for you using points & vouchers...they earn commission on tickets, so make money when you spend money. Jump on the websites & search multi-city/multi stops & you'll see what's available.

Flight centre can't do any better to redeem your points than you can and mostly won't be able to assist you with much as they mostly focus on cash bookings.
