Good To Go Parking

Good To Go Parking discount code clarification

In our article on Good To Go Parking yesterday – the new cheap way to get into the official Heathrow Airport car parks – we said that promo code FIFTEEN was valid for bookings made by 19th March.

It turns out that you need to book and park by 19th March.  If you tried to use the code and got a ‘no availability’ message, that’s why.  If you try to get a quote for parking after 19th March without using the code the website will work OK.

Good Flying Blue hotel promotion

Finally, Flying Blue, the Air France / KLM programme, has launched a new hotel booking promotion is association with PointsHound.

Via this link, you will receive:

2,000 bonus miles for bookings of €150 – €299

5,000 bonus miles for bookings over €300

You must be a new PointsHound customer to get the bonus and must book by 31st March (the stay dates are not mentioned).  Remember that bookings via PointsHound are treated as ‘third party’ bookings and will not earn points or stay credits in any hotel programme and you may also not receive any elite benefits due.

    Sorry OT:
    Did anyone find out if £50 off £100 spend Amex offer for Club Carlson hotels works with prepaid rates. I would be grateful if someone can confirm as thinking of utilising the offer but flexible rate is too high.

  2. PointsHound had 12 000 Flying Blue miles on a first booking of any value a while before Xmas. That got me free return flight to the UK on a €175 booking :)

  3. OT-apologies!

    For, the real harry1 and Genghis- you’ll enjoy this!!

    Having worked a little stick into you both about the A**s weekend and my A**s competion win, I found myself regretting it all yesterday evening whilst waiting for 1hr 45mins to get the keys for a prebooked car at FUE from said company, and then driving for and hour and a half in the pitch black on an island we’ve never been to! .

  4. Just gone for the ClubCard bonus points although I’m still struggling out what works best for me Avios, Virgin etc. I guess I’ve some time to work it all out :)

    • Intrepid travel is my next use at x3. Just need to finalise flights

    • There are quite a few deal reviews on Shopper Points if you dig through there. The best are the ones where you have a product rarely discounted, or where the vouchers can still be used on a discounted deal – Safestore (for a few more weeks) and Eurotunnel are two of the best in that regard. I have used ours for Safestore for years and the loss of it is depressing. I’d need to value Avios at more than 1.25p for it to be a better deal, and I don’t.

        Eurotunnel is great because your voucher acts like cash against any crossing you book online. Unlike pizzas.
