Did you win 100,000 Avios in our Kaligo.com competition (I haven’t told the winner yet!)?

Thank you to everyone who entered our competition last week, sponsored by hotel booking site Kaligo.com, to win 100,000 Avios points.  There was a fantastic response.

I picked a winner yesterday and the name has been verified with Kaligo.com.  I haven’t told this person yet, though – they will receive an email from me later today!

The winner is …..

(drum roll)

  1. Congratulations Peter! Do let us know what you use your prize for! :)

  2. Is that thee Peter K?

    Funny chap off TV :-)

  3. Well done Peter, Very happy and not at all jelous (Honest :-) )

    • I of course meant – Very Happy for You. I wasn’t just bragging about my own state of happiness!

  4. I’ve not had much luck with kaligo so far. Trying to find a hotel so I can book a stay and get the bonus. All the ones I’ve looked at so far they have been far too expensive. Even compared to points hound and rocketmiles.

  5. Congratulations to the winner.

    As for Kaligo……so far best to be avoided. I have just noted that the hotel I want in Singpaore later this year is an astonishing 32% more expensive that going direct. Same hotel same room and same dates….Not good!

    • Paul,

      Our aim is always to provide the best prices and rates while giving extra miles! Could you drop me an email at junyang.ng@kaligo.com with the details of the dates you are searching for? We would love to investigate why we aren’t able to match the prices of the other OTAs. We’re constantly optimizing our prices to provide the best deal.

  6. Not impressed either with Kaligo website, why does the search engine only let you put 4 people in a room?, many hotels cater for larger famiies these days. I cant even get a quote for the hotels we are looking at!

  7. YAY!! I’m so thrilled to have won!! Thank you so much Raffles!! When I read this post this morning I checked my email straight away…and there was nothing in it. A couple of hours went by with me thinking there must be another Peter K (apart from the famous one of course), then not long after half ten I got THE email and ended up jigging around a bit on the spot.

    I intend to use it, along with the other Avios I’m stockpiling with the help of this site, to entice my wife (who does not like long haul) to give Australia a try (and visit my sister who lives over there) by flying business.

    Thank you VERY much both Rob and Kaligo!

  8. Just noticed now I have signed up for the competition you cannot sign up for the Avios Bonus.

  9. Just checked Kaligo for Gatwick airport hotels for this Friday – they’re 20-30% more expensive than when booked through expedia/hotels.com/hilton website. Really want to give these guys a chance but can’t. Funny how the top of the page says “BEST PRICES – Book with confidence! We compare our rates real-time to major travel sites and show you the best price deals.” This is clearly not the case.

    • When I go in, it shows me a price for a hotel and when I click on the hotel in question, that rate isn’t available :-(

      • Jason,

        We apologize for the experience. Can you share with me via email (junyang.ng@kaligo.com) which hotel and dates this is?

        Junyang

  10. Peter, well done many congratulations on winning. Enjoy whatever trip you put together

  11. Same for me !
    Wanted to book an Accor Branch Hotel in Luxembourg as I go there every week.
    But yes, it’s 30% more expensive than on Accorhotel.com.
