You may not have heard of Worldhotels, which is an independent marketing group for 500 upscale hotels, spread across 65 countries. These are hotels which do not want to formally join a branded chain but still want to be able to offer their guests loyalty benefits and to benefit from global marketing campaigns.
You can find our more about Worldhotels here.
It is currently offering a very attractive promotion with 3,000 Avios points with any 2-night stay. 170 of their hotels are taking part in the promotion.
Full details and the participating properties can be found here. The promotion runs until the end of 2015.
Please note that this is an Iberia Plus promotion. You do NOT get 3,000 Avios by showing a BA or avios.com card.
To take part, you will need to open an Iberia Plus account, give that number to the hotel at check-in, and then after the Avios have posted, transfer them to BA or avios.com using ‘Combine My Avios’.
That isn’t a massive strain, though. And it has an extra upside, as you will have an ‘active’ Iberia Plus account which will allow you to move Avios into Iberia Plus and take advantage of their lower taxes on Iberia long-haul redemptions.
If you take Avios for your stay, you will not also earn Peakpoints in the Worldhotels loyalty scheme – although the miles are probably better value.
