Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Long-time readers will know that I usually drop the article count from three articles to two during August.

This year, as we are away next week, I am bringing it forward by a week and the reduced article rate will start from tomorrow.  Technically, it started today if you don’t count this as a proper article.


I promise you that you won’t miss anything.  The travel industry tends to go to sleep in August and there are few new deals to report.  You can be sure that anything which does come up will be covered though.

I will take the opportunity to run more ‘how to’ pieces than usual.  There may still be three articles on any particular day if the news flow justifies it.  If you’re lucky, I may even get revised versions of the “Avios Redemption University” series up ….

For clarity, the site continues to run as normal.   Dropping a daily article simply keeps pace with the reduced newsflow.  My laptop will be following me wherever I go.  One highlight will be a report from Niagara Falls, where I am helping my Mum fulfill a lifetimes ambition to visit.

If your office is quiet, I recommend taking a look at our ‘Favourites’ page where you will find links to the most interesting articles from the last 12 months as well as links to all of my flight reviews, our ‘Avios Redemption University’ articles and our 25 credit card reviews.

    Rob – have a great holiday. Thanks for a really useful site, sometimes it feels like a private members club.

    The maid of the mist is worth it (assuming the weather is decent) however, if you get the opportunity (and the expense isn’t too extortionate) a helicopter tour is an extremely memorable treat. It was 1991 for me & I still cherish it!

    Hey hope you have a great time in Niagara. I am also going there for the first time in August so looking forward to it.

    Using my Barclays free nigth certificates at the Embassy Suites as they just opened availability for a “both falls view” suite to be available under the standard reward.

    How lovely of you and how wonderful for your Mum… I do hope she is suitably impressed. I am sure she will be!
