  • EOC says:

    Nice competition, thanks.
    I looked up that smart American Tourister cabin bag they sell for £105 and with avois at 0.1p each thats £90 after the promo. Ok.. a 5 second Google search found it at £78.75 or another 15pct cheaper still, err…….

    • David says:

      Would like to enter, but I am currently in Tokyo and apparently, the promotion isn’t available in my region…!

  • David says:

    Would love to enter but when I go to the link I get the following error:

    Sorry, this promotion is not available in your region

    I believe this is because the vessel I am currently working on (in the North Sea) uses a server (ISP) that is based in Scandinavia (Norway)…arrgh.

    So despite being a UK resident I cant enter.

  • Rob Hutch says:

    UK resident on holiday in Portugal = no entry. FFS.

    • David says:

      Calm down dear, there are plenty of ways around it.

    • Q says:

      Will you people never cease! This is getting really tedious. need your hand held every step of the way?

    • Billy-Bob says:

      Come on Hutch – you snowflake rabbit!!! Are you using the BBC iPlayer whilst on holiday too? There has to be a way of differentiating UK and non-UK residents, and via IP address location is currently the least worst way. And can quite easily be circumvented – and widely is- for nil cost.

      • Rob Brown says:

        I get stuck because my work use a french IP (As it is a french company) so I am going to have to go to the IT team and say that it is annoying that whilst I am skiving in the morning and reading a blog I can not enter the competition – and by the time I get home where I have a UK IP (at least I assume I do) I tend to forget that I need to enter. I will tell them that their policy is so outragous I almost have no choice but to spend my time here actually doing my job … almost!!

    • Ray says:

      UK resident currently on holiday in Hungary, just entered with the help of Tunnelbear (also just played the National Lottery)

      • John says:

        In Hungary….on holiday….playing the lottery back home?

        I’m clearly doing holidays all wrong.

  • TripRep says:

    This is a decent compo Anika, appreciate HFP running it. Would love to win.

    To all the moaners, if you’re not currently in the UK, use a VPN or get a friend in the UK to enter for you. Oh and cheer up! 😀

    • David says:

      I’m not moaning…just stating a fact…..considering the ‘promotion’ is targeted at travelers, surely HFP should have considered that many who will be reading this will be dotted all over the world:-/

  • Andrew says:

    What ever happened to that whiskey competition? Have the results been announced?

  • N says:

    How are everyone’s luggage tags?

    • Anna says:

      Mine hasn’t arrived yet, but my umbrella, purchased the previous day, arrived about 2 weeks ago! Maybe they ran out of tags for some strange reason…

      • Anna says:

        Also hope they are honouring the 1000 avios deal which was offered before they introduced the £100 minimum purchase requirement, as those haven’t shown up yet either!

    • Hsergio10 says:

      +1 not shown yet (in BAEC account)

      I’m afraid I have to wait those 28 days window

    • Tilly says:

      Didn’t get luggage tag but did get new luggage lock which is good. Hoping they honour the 1k points. Not showing yet in my BAEC account.

      • Zoe says:

        My 2 tags arrived just fine, now I’ve been sent an email asking for a review, I’d rather have the points please!

        • Tilly says:

          Ditto. I might leave a review ofI get the points……. I’ll defintiely leave a negative review if I don’t get the points.

  • Cate says:

    So just blue and black then? Nothing more gender neutral or am I supposed to follow the link and pay for mine which conveniently only has female models to help me with my decision…..?

  • Ace Rimmer says:

    Brilliant competition. Just what I need for my up-and -coming three weeks in Hawaii (2-4-1 in First as far as San Jose, CA earned through getting brilliant – and free! – advice from this site) to celebrate end of paid employment
