Nutmeg Avios

Earn up to 10,000 bonus Avios with hotel bookings via Rocketmiles

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

As with 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 – 10,000 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 offer for both new and existing customers

Rocketmiles has a launched a new bonus in association with Avios.  You can find full details here.

It is not hugely generous unless you are staying somewhere very cheap.  You will get:

250 bonus Avios on your first and second nights

500 bonus Avios on your 3rd to 9th nights

1,000 bonus Avios on your 10th to 15th nights

This means a total of 10,000 Avios points – on top of your standard points – for booking 15 nights.

In addition, new customers will get an extra 2,000 bonus Avios with their first night.

The nights do NOT have to be consecutive.  However, you must book your stays by 31st August and complete your stays by 31st December.

Don’t forget ….

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).

This promotion is one to bear in mind if you are asked to book a non-chain hotel for a lengthy period.  If not, you may find better value with IHG’s Accelerate promotion this Summer which is the most generous of the chain offers.

IHG launches 'double miles' as alternative to Accelerate - but no Avios or Virgin

  1. Every time you post these I always take a look to see if they have somehow lowered their prices.

    These never work out to be free or even a good avios cost (for me at least) for anything other than a night in cheapest hotel for a mattress run.

  2. I guess the Hilton bonus Avios or IHG accelerate deals far out strips this in terns of value.

    Rob – Are there any known examples where Rocketmiles is worth it? …. is destinations where there are no chain hotels??? Scottish Western Isles???

    Do you know if you actually have to check-in & stay to earn these bonuses?

    • Callum says:

      You’ll presumably have to check in but I’ve never stayed in a hotel that monitored your attendance!

      It would make absolutely no sense whatsoever to do that on this deal though, you’d be paying a ridiculous price for the avios.

        It seems you have obviously missed out on the delights of a soviet-era hotel in mother Russia or the eastern bloc then.

    I still haven’t got my bonus miles for a rocket miles stay linked to virgin miles in april. The base credit promptly but the bonus no show so far.

    Rocketmiles have totally gone off the boil for me. I can no longer find any good offers between £50-£70. For example, when they have promotions offering 3000 to 4000 miles, regardless of airline, they remove all the Heathrow and Gatwick airport hotels from search results if they’re £90 or less. I have spent absolutely ages trying to find hotels like this but they just don’t show up.

    I suspect Rocketmiles weren’t making any money out of them because the prices were so low, and hence were removed.

    Kaligo are similarly unenticing in that price range. I don’t check these sites much anymore as I know it’s futile.

  6. Same for me as well.
