3,000 to 5,000 Avios with your first Rocketmiles hotel booking

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

Rocketmiles is a similar business to Kaligo.com and PointsHound.  It offers you a generous pile of airline miles when you book any property through their website.

As with Kaligo.com and PointsHound, Rocketmiles has deals with various hotel room consolidators to provide it with rooms at wholesale prices. Whilst the selection of hotels available is not the largest, the large profit margins on the rooms allow them to offer very generous mileage incentives when you book.

Rocketmiles will offer you 1,000 – 5,000 Avios points PER NIGHT when you book with them.

Their pricing, frankly, not always the cheapest.  The price should compare OK with booking the hotel directly from its own website (the consolidator route is often used by hotels to quietly move unsold rooms without cutting their headline price) but you should check other independent sites.

If you are not spending your own money when booking hotels, it can be very attractive.

Generous ‘first booking’ offer

Many British Airways Executive Club members received an emailed offer from Rockemiles yesterday.  You will receive a bonus of 5,000 Avios points when you make your first booking.

The 5,000 Avios additional bonus is valid for bookings made by 15th May for stays over the next 12 months.

The sign-up bonus is, without a doubt, a decent deal.  It means that you will receive at least 6,000 Avios points (5,000 bonus miles plus 1,000 base miles) even for the cheapest one-night stay they offer.

You need to book via the link in the email.  It is now clear that it does not work otherwise so I have deleted the URL.

If you were not targetted, you can receive 3,000 Avios on a booking made before 30th June by using this link – https://www.rocketmiles.com/ba-avios-3k-bonus

It is important to remember that you will not earn hotel loyalty points or status credit from your stay booked via Rocketmiles. Depending on the chain, you may or may not be able to get your status benefits honoured (free internet, free breakfast, upgrade etc).

Rocketmiles is fully approved by British Airways. You can see their page at ba.com here. Do NOT book via the link on that page, though, as you will not receive the additional 5,000 Avios.  You need to use the link emailed to you or, for 3000 Avios, this link – https://www.rocketmiles.com/ba-avios-3k-bonus

  1. Sorry, O/T – In BA Avios redemption sales, are you still able to book Cathay Pacific (and other partners) via the BA website at the reduced rate?

  2. Trevor says:

    Just compared Kaligo, rocketmiles and pointshound with my existing 4 hotel bookings on hotels.com, and all four are more expensive with points offers that don’t nearly make up the difference. Furthermore, I had a 10% discounbt code with hotels.com. Only searched on these points-back sites once before but after this analysis, won’t be wasting my time again.

  3. Cheshire Pete says:

    I’ve said this previously, but as an example I compared 2 hotels Id short listed for the end of my trip to Miami over Easter. Rocket miles were on average £50 more expensive than Booking.com for exactly the same room at the same hotel on the same day. £170 on Rocket miles compared to £118 on booking.com. Rocket miles state on their website they ‘compare favourably’ to other booking sites plus you get avios on top. I completely disagree. The base miles for this hotel was just 2000 avios for £50. You’re obviously paying extra to get the miles. No thanks.
