News in brief:

Luxury Travel Diary auctions ending soon

The Luxury Travel Diary site dropped me a line about a wave of its auctions that are closing within the next 48 hours.

Most of the items offered tend to go for far less than the standard retail price. Included are hotel stays, travel equipment and various gift vouchers.

Interesting options closing either today or tomorrow include five nights at the Jannah Place Dubai Marina, three nights for five people in a luxury apartment in Belgravia, London and two nights glamping for four people by the loch of a Scottish castle.

The five nights stay at the 5* Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort in Halkidiki, Greece looks like one of the most interesting auctions in Europe, although this doesn’t finish until the end of September.

It’s worth taking a look at the different auctions. Not everything will work for you, either in terms of location, length or dates, but you’ll probably find something of interest if you poke around as there are about 160 different items.

Auto Vivendi

Get £8,000 of BA flights for joining a supercar club!

This is, I admit, one of the most niche British Airways offers we’ve ever covered.

Auto Vivendi is a London-based supercar club.  It owns 11 cars, from a £115,000 Range Rover Vogue through to a £320,000 Lamborghini Aventador S, with 2 x Ferrari, a Rolls-Royce, 2 x Aston Martin, a Mclaren and 2 x Lamborghini inbetween.  The full list is here.

When you join you receive a set number of credits.  These are generally enough to get you 25 days of car use over a year, although that will vary depending on the cars you borrow and the days of the week you take them.

Standard membership is £18,950 per year plus a £1,950 joining fee.  Until 29th September, new members will receive £8,000 of British Airways flight credit as an extra bonus.

There are no restrictions on how this credit can be used, except that it will expire after 24 months.  You can book flights for other people as well as yourself and they will earn Avios and tier points as usual.

The offer doesn’t appear on the Auto Vivendi website but has been emailed to their database and is almost certainly available to anyone who enquires about membership this month.

  1. O/T. I see in the “Best of BA News” in this month’s Club magazine that the bonus avios on BA package bookings is being reduced to 1 avios/£ from 2 October. This is under the headline “More ways to earn bonus Avios on holidays”. As you currently earn 2/£, looks like another great enhancement.

    • Hadn’t seen this, thanks.

    • Sods. I have a BA Holiday starting on 2 October – I hope existing bookings are excluded from this enhancement!

      • I’ve got one booked for next Feb. Our e-ticket has 2x bonus avios specified, so hopefully it will be honoured for existing bookings.

        • BA taking away something that was in place when you booked your ticket but that they removed before you took the flight? They wouldn’t do that! Next thing you’ll be saying is that they would remove the complimentary food and drink on a flight with minimal/no compensation offered to those who booked before the change…….oh, wait.

    OT – anyone got the Amex offer code for the 500 Avios for ‘everyday spend’ please? (Or did I hear someone mention you could get 1000? Just come back off hols and catching up!). Saved it too hastily to the one card it was offered on. Thanks.

    • the real harry1 says:

      you can still get it from the offer you saved – right click on it, inspect element

      • the real harry1 says:

        fairly sure it’s the first one (‘SHOPPING ENROLLED’) ie beginning 3E2…49E’) and not the second one (‘RETAIL ENROLLED’)

        but not sure & obviously one is a unique identifier (to your card) and I wouldn’t want to go giving my unique identifier to Amex 🙂

        you can simply try both

    • Just be aware – I spent £20 with WH Smith but one item wasn’t available so they only put £15 through. I’ve tried again with a £20 gift voucher, they can’t split that!
