News in brief:
50% bonus Virgin miles with Kaligo.com
Hotel booking site Kaligo.com is offering 50% bonus Virgin Flying Club miles on bookings between now and 31st March.
Both new and existing Kaligo.com customers can take part. The only condition is that bookings are made via this special page and that you stay before the year-end.
Remember that bookings via Kaligo.com – and its competitors PointsHound, Rocketmiles and Agoda PointsMAX – do not earn points or status benefits in hotel loyalty programmes so they are often best used for stays at non-chain properties.
You can also earn Avios via Kaligo.com – here is their BA home page.
