Do the maths on just paying cash. The price you pay for points when you pay the credit card surcharge make this formerly attractive option uneconomical.

Even with a (potential) tax deduction on the surcharge though ?
Net cost could be considerably reduced .

Assuming you have platinum charge card, paying directly to ATO earns 0.5 airline point per dollar (ppd) for 1.45%, so you are paying 2.9c/pt. Using reward pay, you are paying 2.365c for 1.125pt, or 2.1c/pt.
