SAA Demise Voyager Miles

Afternoon Ö with the possible demise of South African Airway I sit on 135k Voyager Miles canít book Star Alliance flight and as you must use Voyager Call Center to change it. I travel to SA frequently so Mango could be a possibility but 15k miles JNB/CPT fully flex (flights about £50 or less) is really not an option.
Any ideas Ö

Those miles are literally going to evaporate when SA closes its doors. Use them now for anything you can that is worth more than zero.

I moved my modest balance to Uber. Thought I was being clever... Except that I canít see myself wanting to get into an Uber any time soon!

That horse has now bolted: an email from Voyager informs members that partner redemptions are no longer available. Since there are no flights there cannot be flight awards so your Voyager miles are literally worthless.

The last email I received from them with any communication was on 31 July 2020. Stating that redemption will be suspended until 31 August 2020. Since then, Silence! I can confirm that the following places do not accept Voyager miles. Since I called them today to confirm.

Mango Airlines
Europcar
AVIS
