News in brief:
British Airways offers from Gatwick
British Airways is running a series of offers from Gatwick Airport over the next few weeks. The first one is ‘25% off Winter Sun destinations’ and runs until midnight on Wednesday.
There are a range of discounts on short-haul flights to warmer European cities, with prices starting at £31 each way to Malaga.

Hilton to rebrand The Cambridge City Hotel
The hotel is due to open as a Hilton in December. It will complement the existing DoubleTree property in the city and will offer a good Hilton HHonors redemption option given the high prices generally charged in Cambridge.
You can book the hotel at this page of hilton.com.
Kabbee offering double loyalty miles on airport trips
Minicab app Kabbee, which combines the fleets of 70 London minicab firms in one app, is offering double loyalty points on all airport journeys.
This does have a serious benefit. Once you become a BronzeBee – which you would reach after one airport trip with double points – you are eligible for the Kabbee ‘5 minute refund guaranteee’. If your Kabbee driver arrives more than 5 minutes late (for a job booked more than an hour in advance), Kabbee will refund your entire fare.
Airport fares are fixed. From Central London the app charges £25 to Heathrow, £45 to Stansted, £45 to Gatwick and £50 to Luton.
You will get a further £5 off your first trip if you use code [deleted as now expired] when you install the app. You can download the relevant version for your phone here. If you want to book online, the Kabbee airport site is here.
