Kaligo.com is a hotel booking site which lets you earn Avios points on every booking, irrespective of the chain.
They have run some excellent promotions in the past and I believe that more are on the way. If you have not used them before and need a hotel over the next week or so, however, you could do worse than take advantage of their current promotion.
You will receive 3,000 bonus Avios points – on top of the standard Avios earned from your stay – on your first Kaligo.com booking.
There is no minimum spend or stay length.
You must book before 31st December but your stay can be at any point until 6th October 2016.
Kaligo.com has an excellent reputation for posting points promptly and you will receive your Avios a few days after check-out.
Pricing can vary wildly compared to other sites so do double check other places before you book. Much of the time they match other sites but occasionally it is more expensive. That said, for a cheap one night stay it is unlikely that any price difference would outweigh the value of the 3,000 Avios.
You will not earn points or stay credit with the hotel itself because this is treated as a third party booking. You will also not receive a VAT invoice for stays at EU hotels which may be an issue if you are a small business.
If you can work around the issues above, though, this is a good little bonus to top up your Avios account.
