News in brief:
Bonus Avios booking hotels with Kaligo.com
Hotel booking site Kaligo.com has been fairly quiet on the promotional front recently, following a number of very generous offers in 2015.
They now have a new offer available:
You will receive double Avios on all bookings made by 31st December 2016
The stay must be completed by 30th April 2017
First-time bookers with Kaligo.com will receive an additional 2,000 Avios
Like similar sites such as PointsHound and Rocketmiles, hotel bookings via Kaligo.com are treated as non-qualifying stays. This means that you won’t receive any points in Hilton HHonors, IHG Rewards Club etc or, most of the time, receive any status benefits due to you.
Assuming there is no price difference, this offer is best used when staying at a hotel outside one of the major chains.

Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,000 Avios.
