Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Get 600 bonus Avios on ‘airport hotel with parking’ deals via Holiday Extras

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Via ba.com, Holiday Extras is offering 600 bonus Avios when you book an ‘airport hotel with parking’ through them between December 1st and December 21st.

This is on top of the standard earnings rate of 5 Avios per £1 spent.

This bonus applies ONLY to ‘airport hotel with parking’ bookings and not hotel-only or parking-only bookings.

If you are not familiar with them, an ‘airport hotel with parking’ deal can be substantially cheaper than booking airport parking on its own.  Basically, you book a hotel near your departure airport for the night before you fly, and your car remains in their car park until you return.  It brings extra revenue to the hotel from guests who would not normally choose it, and the customer saves on paying a separate parking facility.

Full details can be found on the Holiday Extras / British Airways website here.

    Looks like I can book the cheapest room & parking and get 600 points, might be useful for my next holiday as I was considering staying a hotel the night before.

    “600 bouns avios points only applicable for any Hotel inclusive of parking booking, booked between December 01, 2013, and December 21, 2013. There are no bonus Avios for room only bookings. Products are subject to availability Extras points will be attributed to your account 30 days after your return date to the car park. Promotion can be withdrawn at any time.”

    It’s worth noting that when booking parking via the BA website they add a couple of hours onto your return time for the parking booking… If you are on the cusp of a 24 hour parking period this can make a significant difference to the price. The departure/arrival times can be changed… 🙂
