News in brief:
New ‘Luxury Travel Diary’ auction launched
The ‘Luxury Travel Diary’ website has launched another of its regular auctions. Some HfP readers have successfully bought items in the past – this is not a huge site and there can be genuinely good deals if you get something which others have overlooked.
If none of those appeal, there is a yurt on the Isle of Wight as well … (photo below)
The closing dates for the lots vary wildly – some close this week, other run into late October – so you should make a diary note to keep track of those of interest.
Head for Points in the media
I appeared in a couple of media pieces this week which may be worth a look.
Over at Buying Business Travel, I discussed the impact of the Avios devaluation. What is interesting about this piece is that a number of corporate travel agents talk about the changes they have seen to booking patterns.
For The World, a public service radio show in the US, I discussed the UK approach to miles and points as part of a broader discussion. The gist of the piece is in this article here or you can listen to the full show here (you want the September 14th edition) – fast forward to 17 mins 25 seconds.
