A lot of good hotel promotions ended on April 30th with no obvious replacements. As we are now into May, I thought it was worth doing a quick recap of the best hotel promotions currently available.
The standout promotion for me at the moment is the Club Carlson ‘triple points’ offer (ends 28th June). As I explained in this article, you will get half of what you spend back in free nights, assuming you value their points at £5 per 1,000.
Club Carlson covers Radisson, Park Inn and Park Plaza. One good thing about this offer is that there are no minimum stay requirements – the triple points kick in from your first booking and even one-night stays qualify. You can register for the offer here.
Le Club Accorhotels
There is a new promotion launching on Monday which offers 10,000 Avios or €200 in credit for booking 3 x 2-night stays. Full details are in this article.
The current ‘double points’ or ‘double miles’ offer runs until May 31st. It is not life-changing, to be honest. Full details in this article.
IHG Rewards Club, Marriott Rewards, Starwood Preferred Guest and Hyatt Gold Passport
Nothing …..! There is a new IHG promotion for members in North America but nothing for the rest of the world. Hyatt, Starwood and Marriott have nothing for anyone, anywhere.
You may want to look elsewhere for the next few weeks.
With many of the big chains having little to offer, it may be worth looking at the specialist booking companies.
The current Kaligo.com promotion of 3,000 bonus Avios for every booking of £200 or more made by 30th June is worth a look. This is on top of the standard Avios points that Kaligo.com would give you for your stay. You can book now for stays at any point in the next 12 months.
Rocketmiles, a similar business to Kaligo, is also offering 3,000 Avios if you book a hotel through them, with no minimum spend – details here. This is only valid for first-time Rocketmiles customers, however, whereas the Kaligo.com offer is open to anyone.
Rocketmiles has also just launched with Virgin Flying Club and is offering 3,000 miles on your first booking – more on that promotion soon.
