News in brief:

Hilton EMEA sale ending soon

The Hilton EMEA sale which covers the UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa ends on 31st January. The special landing page is here.

Whilst it is nominally called the Winter Sale, you can book for any weekend between now and the end of 2017.  The sale offers a discount of up to 30% off the standard Best Available Rate if you are a Hilton HHonors member, albeit that sale rates require prepayment and are non-refundable.  You receive a smaller discount (25%) if you are not logged in.  This offer is for all Hilton Group hotels, including Hampton, Conrad, Waldorf-Astoria etc.

Malaysia Airlines £1500 Sydney / Melbourne deal still available!

If you have been thinking about a trip down under then you still have a couple of days to jump on this excellent deal from Malaysia Airlines.

Via Expedia, you can book London to Sydney or Melbourne in Malaysia Airlines business class for just £1,500 return.

To get this price you MUST book a ‘flight and hotel’ package.  If you select the cheapest hostel option for just one night (select ‘I only want a hotel for part of my trip’) it will cost exactly £1,507 for one person to Sydney.  You do not need to stay in the hostel and your return flight will not be cancelled if you don’t turn up.

Remember that Malaysia Airlines is a oneworld alliance member so your flights earn Avios and British Airways tier points.  Australia would be 600 tier points return (140 + 160 + 160 + 140) which is a BA Silver card, albeit you’d still need to have flown 4 BA flights in your current card year before you were upgraded.

Between London and Kuala Lumpur you will get an A380, with an A330 onwards on most routes.  The A330 business class seat is the latest version and has some very attractive solo window seats as the seating plan on this page of the Malaysia website shows.

Bangkok, Phuket and Bali are also available for around £1,100 return.

You may want to try other Asian destinations too.

Pop over to Expedia and have a play around.  It is VERY easy to find dates later in the year – note that the maximum possible stay is 25 days from departure.  You must travel by 26th November 2017.

  1. Any views on the A380 business? Not world beating but not too shabby?

    Anyone have any tips for a top scuba diving destination in that region that would link well with this offer?

    1)Which lounges can we use?
    2)Can we ‘guest’ in two of our friends that are travelling in WTP on the same flight? (if so which lounges)

  3. Mikescores says:

    Just had a look at end September into October for KL – about £1350 in business. But don’t forget you have to book a hotel; tick the box that you don’t need the hotel for the whole of your trip, enter the one night and then you access those fares. Good luck.

  4. Can’t get the Expedia deal to work for dates in July and August for 4 travellers

  5. I’m sure its in the article but I can’t see when the Malaysia Airlines deal via expedia ends?
    Could someone let me know please thanks
