You need to book by 31st July for stays up to 7th September.
The Radisson Blu offer is based on Bed & Breakfast package rates and rooms must be prepaid and are not refundable. A few hotels are excluded – Manchester Airport, Jersey, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London Portman, Sligo and three Dublin properties.
The special booking site for Radisson Blu can be found here. One of the upsides of Radisson properties is that free internet is included for all guests.
The cheaper budget chain Park Inn is running a similar deal.
Discounts at Park Inn run as high as 50%.
As with the Radisson deal, you need to book a Bed & Breakfast package. A few hotels are excluded – Glasgow, York, Cork Airport, Shannon Airport – although I noticed that the Southend on Sea hotel is participating!
Don’t forget to join Club Carlson if you decide to book one of these deals. It is one of the most generous hotel loyalty schemes around (20 points per $1 spent) and you can top up your account with American Express Membership Rewards points from a Gold or Platinum card at the rate of 1 to 3.
How to earn Radisson Rewards points from UK credit cards (July 2021)
Radisson Rewards does not have a dedicated UK credit card. However, you can earn Radisson Rewards points by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards. These include:
- American Express Preferred Rewards Gold (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 20,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 60,000 Radisson Rewards points. This card is FREE for your first year and also comes with two free airport lounge passes.
- The Platinum Card from American Express (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 30,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 90,000 Radisson Rewards points
- American Express Rewards credit card (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 5,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 15,000 Radisson Rewards points. This card is FREE for life.
Membership Rewards points convert at 1:3 into Radisson Rewards points which is a very attractive rate. The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 3 Radisson Rewards points.
Even better, holders of The Platinum Card receive free Radisson Rewards Gold status for as long as they hold the card. It also comes with Hilton Honors Gold, Marriott Bonvoy Gold and MeliaRewards Gold status. We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here.
