News in brief:
The BA Diamond Club discount is back!
Well, here’s a surprise. At the end of May, the 10% discount on British Airways flights offered to holders of the old bmi British Midland credit cards stopped working.
We had all forgotten that the discount was actually mean to end around that time, since we had been given well over 12 months notice.
Well, the link is working again. Log in at www.diamondclub.org, click through the big banner ad to ba.com and you will see your flights pricing up with a 10% discount.
I don’t know how long the deal will last but it is worth using whilst you can. Thanks to Richard.
Accor Summer Sale now on
Accor Hotels has been running a sale for its Sofitel, Pullman, Novotel, Mercure, Ibis, Ibis Styles and Ibis Budget brands for a few weeks now.
It slipped through the HFP net originally but, as we have only just entered into the stay period – stays need to be made between 4th July and 11th September – now is a good time to mention it.
The sale covers Accor hotels in the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg and Austria.
Discounts are up to 30% off Best Flexible Rates – although the sale rates must be pre-paid – and an additional discount is given to members of Le Club AccorHotels.
Full details can be found on the Accor website here. The last day to book is 4th September.
(And, if you need a UK hotel for next weekend, don’t forget the fantastic deals offered by Accor ‘Happy Mondays’, with rooms from just £25. You can read more about them here and I will cover them again tomorrow.)
