If you live in London, you will presumably have seen advertising for the MasterCard ‘Priceless London’ events programme over the past couple of years.

If you don’t live in London, you won’t have seen it. And even if you do, you might now know that ‘Priceless London’ members get access to a range of interesting travel discounts.

You can sign up for ‘Priceless London’ here. You will need to have a UK-issued MasterCard, from any issuer.

Priceless London

The travel deals can be found here. Some are restricted to World Elite MasterCard holders, which are issued by a small number of banks and usually carry a hefty fee, eg Coutts. Most are open to all, however.

You can access:

10% off hotel bookings at lastminute.com

10% off airport concierge services

Membership of the ‘Small Luxury Hotels of the World’ loyalty scheme at ‘Loved’ status (usually requires 1 stay)

£10 promotional code when you join the Hailo black cab service

There are a lot of other good deals on ‘Priceless London’, so do take a look if you’ve never bothered before.

    Think everyone is getting mixed up with World MasterCard and World Elite MasterCard. Even the Coutts one Raffles has linked to looks like its a World MasterCard (Elite is defined by a silver MasterCard logo).

    I have a Santander 123 World MasterCard, but it would not allow me on the Elite links.

  • Andrew (@andrewseftel) says:

    That is a World MasterCard, not World Elite MasterCard. Capital One do have a card on the World Elite platform: Aspire Elite. It has a £120 annual fee, but a 5% intro capped at £200 so you can make that back. Long-term earning rates are also higher (up to 2%).

  • aeroflott says:

    The way the lastminute deal is set up means the MCARD10 code will only work via the link they provide. It won’t work if used directly on lastminute.com.

    As stated elsewhere, the reality is you can use any card to redeem most of these offers.
