How to get a discount on Gatwick Express (2017 edition)

Getting a discount on the Gatwick Express is totally different to saving money on Heathrow Express.  There are no online discount codes or Gatwick Express promotional codes to share.  What you do have, which you don’t have when taking the train to Heathrow, are a variety […]

Sneaky airport parking deals with JustPark.com

You may remember reading about JustPark.com when it launched.  The original premise of the site is that, if you live near a station or shopping area, you could use the site to rent out your driveway for less than the cost of a standard parking […]

I try ‘Flight Experience London’ in Putney and land a Boeing 737

The closest I’ve come to flying a plane was a computer game my brother had when we were kids. Though most of the time he wouldn’t let me fly the plane and I’m pretty sure whenever he did let me have a go I crashed […]

ALL GONE: 73 AwardWallet upgrade codes available below!

These codes have all gone, apologies to those who missed out.  If I can get some more as a result of sign-ups to AW from this article then I will drop them into the comments of one of the articles. As I previewed earlier today, here are […]

73 AwardWallet 6-month upgrade vouchers (worth $15 each) to give away today

There is only one miles and points tool that I use every day – and have done for a number of years – and that is AwardWallet.  There has always been a link to them from the “I Also Recommend …..” section at the bottom […]

Low-cost NYC with, erm, Primera Air from B’ham and London – book or avoid?

One thing about getting older is that you get a better sense of perspective on news announcements.  This is why I wasn’t rushing to write an article when that well-known airline Primera Air announced low-cost flights to New York and Boston from Birmingham and Stansted. […]

Why I tried Revolut on my trip to New York – but should you?

My purse does not contain any credit or debit cards that charge no foreign exchange fees.  I know that I should have tackled this issue way sooner as I’ve wasted money on unnecessary FX fees in the past. Last month, with my New York trip coming […]

Good news or bad news? Government bans credit card acceptance fees from January

REMINDER: Get exclusive benefits on luxury hotel bookings via Head for Points

I wanted to give our luxury hotel booking service another mention today.  Since I relaunched this six months ago with Emyr Thomas of Bon Vivant, the feedback from Head for Points readers has been excellent.  Just under £500,000-worth of rooms have been booked so far. Here […]

250 free Avios for joining Meridiana Club (but any use?)

You may never have heard of Italian airline Meridiana, even though it uses Avios for its reward programme. I wouldn’t blame you.  It does appear to be a slightly bizarre operation.  It is the 2nd biggest Italian-owned airline in Italy but that isn’t saying much. […]
