News in brief:
Win great prizes with The Times Travel Awards
Voting is now open for the annual Times / Sunday Times / Sunday Times Travel Magazine awards. It is worth taking a look because entering gets you into a prize draw.
You can enter very quickly because there is a drop-down list of nominees in each of the 11 categories. You can whizz through the whole thing in a couple of minutes.
… and don’t forget The Telegraph either
Voting is also underway for the annual Telegraph travel awards.
The 20 prizes on offer for voters are exceptional, most are valued at around £20,000 to £30,000 each.
No more Nectar points when booking easyJet
easyJet and Nectar have ended their deal whereby you could earn Nectar points when booking easyJet flights.
The rate was not exceedingly generous in any event, and required you to book via a special link on the Nectar website. You received earn 1 Nectar point for every £1 you spend on easyJet, which is equivalent to 0.5% back. It is 0.5% more than you would have got back otherwise though!
You can still redeem Nectar points for easyJet flights – see here. The rate is no better than spending your points in Sainsbury’s (£2.50 per 500 points) and so I wouldn’t recommend it. Save them for a special Nectar redemption offer – Shopper Points will flag them up when they come along – such as the current generous Summer Rewards promotion. You will get at least 1p per Nectar point this way.
