Does anyone have experience with management companies and bonus points/miles earned on boat credit cards?
Our management companies takes all the bonus points earned from boat expenditure while Iwonder whether those points should perhaps not go towards saving the boat money on e.g. crew travel etc.
It is a bit of a sensitive topic when broached with management...would love to know what other boats/management cos do with the boat bonus pounts/miles earned? What is the industry norm?
