Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Would you like to win 100,000 Avios points? Thought so. Wait until Monday …

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

If you were planning on heading into a remote jungle on Monday, miles from an internet connection, I seriously recommend that you change your plans.

Because, at 7am on Monday, I am starting the New Year with a bang with a very special Head for Points competition.  There is just one prize but that winner will be picking up something impressive.

The prize is being sponsored by Kaligo in support of their new hotel booking website which went live in the UK in November.  You can currently earn 3,000 bonus Avios points for your first hotel booking with them.  Spend over £1,000 and you will receive a whopping 10,000 bonus Avios.  This is on top of the base Avios points they will give you for your booking, which can be as high as 2,000 Avios per night.  I wrote about Kaligo and their current promotion in this article.

Frankly, even 10,000 bonus Avios pales into insignificance compared to this prize.

One lucky Head for Points reader will win 100,000 Avios next week.

Sounds good?  Thought so.  Make sure you visit Head for Points on Monday to enter.

    Thanks, Raffles. I’ll look out for the competition.

    I wish Kaligo had a ‘distance from’ sort option (like lastminute) as ‘London’ is a big place (and using ‘Paddington’, for example, didn’t give any results)

      It’s worth emailing Kaligo directly with your idea, they are still tweeting the site and Sebastien will reply to you directly.

    • Sebastian says:

      Thank you for the suggestion, HelenWB. I’ve got some good news on this front!

      A feature we are currently beta-testing is adding in a large number of ‘points of interest’ into the search box. Results are then displayed by distance from your chosen point. You should see this live on the site by end of the month.

    I am shocked to read of the comments on this page … some people lack basic gratitude for someone who spends an awful lot of effort helping others. Essentially someone did not bother reading the post properly and then decided the world is against them (looking at you Dwarf).

    I would like to think the Rob realises that this is not the opinions of those who follow this site regularly.

    Hi everyone,

    I wanted to provide a quick response to the feedback on prices that has been shared in various posts:

    Please rest assured that it’s an absolute top priority for Kaligo to combine a broad choice of hotels with competitive rates. Our goal is to give you no reason to ever book a hotel anywhere else.

    While we already offer parity rates PLUS great rewards on many hotels (and readers here have clearly been taking advantage of those deals – which is delightful to see!) , we’ve got a lot more to do. A major initiative already underway is to significantly expand the supply of rooms and the types of rates we offer. This new content is progressively coming online through March 2015.

    Looking forward to seeing many more of you on, and best of luck to all those taking part in the 100,000 Avios competition!
