News in brief:

Avis now offering one-way car rentals from London airports from £2!

On Christmas Eve, I wrote about how Avis is offering car rentals from Gatwick, Heathrow Terminals 2-4, Heathrow Terminal 5 (separate pick-up area), Luton and Stansted for £20.

This deal was obviously not met with great enthusiasm.  A few hours after the HFP article went live, Avis sent out another email.

Rentals would now be £2 with Avis between 29th December and 3rd January.  You can book here.

Remember that you must book a one-way rental and it must depart from one of the airports above.

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 £2 for a Ford Fiesta (Group B).  If you want to splash out, biggers were available for £2.50, £3.50 or £5.   The booking page is here.

100 free Heathrow Rewards points

Heathrow Rewards is offering 100 free points if you take part in the Heathrow Airport ‘share your stories’ project.  This involves sharing a short (2 sentence) story about an experience, good or bad, you had at the airport.

Most members will have received this email directly.  If you are opted out of Heathrow Rewards marketing emails, though, you will have missed it.

You can share your story here.  You must use the same email address as used on your Heathrow Rewards account.  It is not 100% certain that you will receive the points if you didn’t receive the email but for the sake of 60 seconds work you may want to give it a try.

    Fantastic deal from Avis! Just booked a day and a half from LCY to St Pancras over New Year to cover a trip out to the country. I’ll keep a careful eye on my EC account to see if any miles get posted as a bonus.

    Booked Avis from LHR to Cheltenham, and got them to collect the car from my home address for £4. Brilliant!
