Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

3,000 miles in ANY airline scheme with a Rocketmiles hotel booking

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

For just two days, until October 3rd, hotel booking site Rocketmiles is offering 3,000 bonus airline miles with any hotel booking.

The only rule is that you must not have used their service before.  Whilst you need to book by the 3rd, your stay can be for any future date.

Airlines featured include British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Qatar, Etihad, Flying Blue, American and many more.

The 3,000 bonus miles is on top of the standard earnings from your booking.

As with and Pointshound, you need to be careful when you book as prices tend to jump around quite a bit.  If you can find a hotel which is very similar to what you would pay elsewhere, the bonus miles make it a bargain.

Remember that you will not receive points in any hotel loyalty scheme for your stay as these bookings are treated as non-qualifying.  You will also not receive a VAT receipt which may be an issue for small businesses booking a hotel inside the EU.

Note that the site defaults to US$ pricing but there is a box at the top which allows you to switch to, and pay in, £.

As an example, a quick search for Leeds for a midweek stay in October threw up the Holiday Inn Express for £99 and a total of 4,000 Avios earned, including the bonus. was asking £94, but the extra £5 would be well worth paying for 4,000 points.

    Not really a good offer. Unless somebody is in urgent need of the miles it would be best to wait for next 5000 mile offer which come around from time to time..

    • Rob says:

      New email address = new customer as far as they are concerned, presumably as long as you have not used them to earn in the same airline account before.

      What is good about this offer is that all airlines are covered.

        Thats where a household acc is handy. different FF number and name.
        Everyones dog or cat should have BA exec acc. 🙂

      • Paul says:

        Any airline? Like Lufthansa?

        • Rob says:

          Any airline Rocketmiles partners with*, which is a lot (but not Lufthansa!).

          * If we’re being picky, Norwegian is excluded. The other 30 or so airlines they work with are included.

    Is this anywhere in the world or just UK .

  • Polly says:

    Once I logged in, it immediately reduced my points to the basic. Yes will wait and see if current subscribers are treated better later on. Little annoying that it’s only for newbies.

    Also stunned to read on other post that Tesco are no longer stocking cards, is this really true? Gutted!

    • harry says:

      Mark hasn’t replied yet but it sounds like a twitter/ Facebook reply to him, so is inherently likely to be nonsense IMV. I know for fact pay.coms were restocked as recently as this week in my local Tesco, again that doesn’t really prove much but is quite good evidence that the pay.coms are still going on the pegs.

      Wait & see.

    • CV3V says:

      I haven’t seen any cards for since July, and I travel a lot up and down the UK and had various good Tesco stores located for a constant supply, but these are all dried up (I could list about a dozen stores!). Also those cards which were stocked had a print date of 04/15 and the reports are that where pegs have been refilled it’s just the store using up last of stocks. A few comments have been made on PTS that Tesco have confirmed a few times now (not including twitter and Facebook) that they will not be restocking and also that there is a new layout plan for the gift cards section with no cards. If I want to keep scooping up points then it’s time for a Tesco mortgage (which overall can be a competitive deal)!

      But yes, will have to wait and see.

      In terms of a manufactured spend for credit card bonuses then from Homebase, Morrisons and Boots still remains an option.

    • The_Real_A says:

      I have been told the same thing for the last 2 years. You have to take it with a pinch of salt… but who knows. The fact that they are not stocking it “currently” and its not on the planner does not mean they will no longer stock it in the future.

    • CV3V says:

      On a related (clubcard) note, anyone else get sent the money off vouchers, it also includes a double points promo and I have been getting double clubcard points on ALL in store spend (not on direct). I don’t know if this will work with giftcards, but time to test out.

      • harry says:

        They stopped sending us money off coupons a long time ago, maybe when they realised the customer profitability (or lack of).

  • Sam says:

    If you book in USD its cheaper that GBP by a long way for some reason.

    • John says:

      The USD price does not include taxes whereas the GBP price does

      • Rob says:

        UK law obliges businesses selling to the public to quote prices including all taxes. IHG etc got into trouble over this a couple of years ago – you may remember that London hotel prices used to be quoted ex-VAT by a lot of chains.

  • Leo says:

    4000 Virgin points for a £99 night I had booked elsewhere in any event. Full disclosure – was £100 and Rocketmiles £99. Fair play, better than anything I’ve ever seen on Kaligo.
