Free Langham ‘1865’ Voyager status is currently available for HSBC Premier credit card holders.
One of the lesser known benefits of being a British Airways Gold member is that you can get free mid-tier Voyager status in the Langham Hotels ‘1865’ loyalty scheme.
I wrote about how the Langham upgrade works for BA Gold members here. The snag is that you can’t get the status in advance. You need to show your BA Gold credentials at check-in and the hotel will then set it up for you, which is a bit of a drag if you’ve just landed in Asia after a 12 hour flight.
Langham Hotels offers a similar deal for HSBC Premier credit card holders. The good news is that you can sign up to Voyager status online, so your benefits will be sorted out before you check in.
‘Voyager’ level would usually require five stays or 15 nights and gives you the following benefits:
6pm check-out subject to availability – very handy for evening flights
a one category room upgrade subject to availability
free fruit and water
your choice of personalised welcome amenity
500 Avios per NIGHT (maximum 3 nights) or 250 per night at Eaton
If you have a HSBC Premier credit card, you can find out how to claim your Langham Hotels status on the HSBC website here. Note that this is only available to new members – if you already have an active ‘1865’ account then it cannot be upgraded.
