The best car rental deal of the week was clearly Virgin Atlantic’s new offer of a whopping 6,000 Flying Club miles with a 2+ day Avis rental.
If you find yourself booking a car from Europcar instead, there is an interesting offer with Le Club AccorHotels, the loyalty scheme for Ibis, Novotel, Mercure, Sofitel etc.
If you book by 31st January for rentals completed by 15th June, you will get:
750 Accor points for a 1-4 day rental
1,500 Accor points for a 5-7 day rental
3,000 Accor points for a 8+ day rental
1 Accor point is worth 2 Eurocents of credit towards an Accor hotel stay or 1 Avios point if you convert to Iberia Plus. Do not convert to BA as you only get 0.5 Avios points per Accor point.
Full details are on the Europcar website here. US and Canada rentals do not qualify.
