Hotel booking site Kaligo.com, which awards Avios points with every hotel you book, has launched its new promotion for the April to June period.
It is a simple, straightforward one.
For every hotel booking over £200 you make before June 30th, you will receive 3,000 bonus Avios points.
These points are in addition to the base Avios points you will receive for your booking. You receive the bonus for every booking you make during the period, up to maximum of 30,000 bonus Avios.
The stays can be taken at any point until June 30th 2016 – a full year!
The £200 target spend includes VAT so there is no ‘funny business’ over what counts as applicable spend. If you pay more than £200, your stay qualifies.
You MUST register before you book at this promotional website in order to receive the bonus.
As usual with such promotions, you need to check your pricing before you book. Kaligo.com is not always the cheapest place to book – it depends on the property. However, when you factor in the value of the 3,000 bonus Avios points – plus the base Avios you earn from the stay – they should be looking pretty good.
Remember that you will usually not earn points for your room spend in any hotel loyalty programme linked to the property you book if you use Kaligo.com (or indeed any third-party hotel booking site). Depending on the hotel, you may receive status benefits or points for your food and drink spend.
Kaligo.com also shared a few other bits of news with me:
You can now add your company name to your profile, which means that your company name will appear on the invoice you are sent. Some customers had requested this to help with expense claims and invoicing.
You can now search by points of interest rather than just city name
Singapore Airlines Krisflyer has been added as a new partner. If you collect KrisFlyer miles, there is a launch promotion here. The other airlines they work with are Air Asia, American, Asia Miles, Etihad, Jet, Thai, United and Xiamen – full details here.
Remember that you have until June 30th to book your rooms to qualify for the ‘3,000 bonus Avios per booking’ offer.
