Double PartnerPlusBenefit points on Swiss to Geneva as BA triples services from City

PartnerPlusBenefit

Bits: Lufthansa and Cathay business class sales, bonus Clubcard points on toys and Will Young

Lufthansa

More news in brief: Lufthansa launches a business class sale Lufthansa has not, historically, been very aggressive in targeting the UK market.  I was a little surprised to see this sale launched. The prices are not bad, although of course a few places on the […]

How to earn Avios via Clubcard by taking gas and electricity from E.ON

E.ON

E.ON is one of the lesser known Tesco Clubcard partners.  This is because, since the end of 2013, you do NOT earn Tesco Clubcard points directly from them. E.ON has its own rewards scheme – E.ON Rewards – and it is those points which can be […]

Some news in brief: Hilton HHonors launches a UK-only competition Reader Alan helpfully pointed me in the direction of this competition which Hilton is running exclusively for Hilton HHonors members in the UK.  Apparently some HFP readers are seeing it advertised on the site although […]

Bits: North America KLM deals, BA £932 Club World to New York, South West Trains deal

Air France new business class 3

Here is some news in brief that accumulated whilst I was running around Stockholm (SAS), Toulouse (Airbus) and Heathrow this week – which accounts for the slightly disjointed flow of articles recently!  There are some very interesting stories from that trip to come next week, but for now: […]

Redeem Avios to Asia via China and benefit from a 72 hour ‘no visa’ stopover and better availability

Shanghai

I have been to China a few times but always found the visa situation messy.  The quickest way used to be to fly first to Hong Kong and then apply locally, where one could be rustled up quickly and cheaply. Back in January 2013, all […]

Supercard from Travelex is now available – the end of FX credit card charges?

Supercard

Back in March I wrote about the forthcoming launch of Supercard from Travelex.  It is very rare that a totally revolutionary payment product comes along but this could be it. As you (hopefully) know, almost all UK credit, debit and charge cards add a 3% fee when […]
