News in brief:

Hilton now has a website for its status match!

Hilton HHonors is currently matching top tier members of pretty much every hotel loyalty programme to its own top tier, Diamond.  Your match will run until March 2017.

Full details of the Hilton status match are in this article so I won’t repeat myself.

The match runs until 11th January.  You can no longer email Hilton.  Instead, there is a special status match website here.

Fill in the form, email a screenshot of your current status and you are good to go.  You would be crazy not to do this if you have hotel status elsewhere.

Avis offering one-way UK car rentals over Christmas

If you are travelling to or from a UK airport over the festive season, this could work for you.

Avis is offering one-way car rentals between 29th December and 3rd January for £20.  You can book here.

This is valid from Gatwick, Heathrow Terminals 2-4, Heathrow Terminal 5 (separate pick-up area), Luton and Stansted.  It is not valid for trips to the airport.

This could be your cheapest route home after your flight.  It isn’t clear if you would earn Avios or other miles as well but there is no harm adding your number to your booking.

I did a dummy booking from Heathrow T5 to Avis Battersea for 3rd January and it priced at £20 for Ford Fiesta (Group B) and £25 for a Group C to E.  You can’t argue at that price.
