Radisson Rewards – the loyalty scheme for Radisson Blu, Radisson RED, Radisson Collection, Park Inn and Park Plaza hotels – has launched its new Spring promotion.

If you can push a lot of business their way over the next 10 weeks it could work out very nicely indeed.

It is a simple one, based on the number of nights you do between now and 31st March:

  • Stay 1 night, earn 1,000 bonus points
  • Stay 2 nights, earn 3,000 bonus points
  • Stay 5 nights, earn 10,000 bonus points
  • Stay 10 nights, earn 50,000 bonus points
  • Stay 20 nights, earn 120,000 bonus points

The bonus posts cumulatively.  You receive 1,000 points after your first night, an additional 2,000 (total 3,000) after your 2nd night, an additional 7,000 (total 10,000) after your fifth night etc.

I value a Radisson Rewards point at around 0.33p.  This means that you are getting a very modest £3.33 return if you do just one night.  If you do exactly 20 nights, however, you will have received a bonus of 120,000 points which is worth around £400 – that is a VERY attractive £20 per night.

Existing bookings WILL count.  Interestingly, points and ‘points and cash’ stays will count too.  This means that if you can find a very cheap 9,000 point hotel (there are none left in the UK but they still exist in other countries) and stayed there for 20 nights, you would get 2/3rd of your points back.

You MUST register in order to take part, which can be done at this page of the Radisson Rewards website.

How to earn Radisson Rewards points and status from UK credit cards

How to earn Radisson Rewards points and status from UK credit cards (February 2024)

Radisson Rewards does not have a dedicated UK credit card. However, you can earn Radisson Rewards points by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards.

These cards earn Membership Rewards points:

Membership Rewards points convert at 1:3 into Radisson Rewards points which is a very attractive rate.  The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 3 Radisson Rewards points.

Even better, holders of The Platinum Card receive free Radisson Rewards Premium status for as long as they hold the card.  It also comes with Hilton Honors Gold, Marriott Bonvoy Gold and MeliaRewards Gold status.  We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here.

    I don’t get why airlines charge approx £1,000 more for staying one less night. It’s criminal pricing. Flying a plane from A to B shouldn’t have anything to do with the fact if you stay 5 nights or 6 nights. Why are they allowed to do this and get away with it?

    • TGLoyalty says:

      Becuase they are free to price their fares as they wish? If they impose conditions they publish and stick to them then shouldn’t be an issue? Also for example including Saturday night usually means it’s leisure and not business.

      Though let’s be honest how many business customers aren’t buying flex tickets, I know we have to regardless of how firm our plans are.

        Interesting. I think some take a different view – for trains at least (which can still be hundreds of pounds within the UK) – book discounted non-refundable then if meeting runs over reimburse that and extra walk up fare. Compared to everyone paying walk up rates there are still significant savings to be had.

      it’s bcos too many want to fly on the same flight and they need to keep space free for those who really, really need those seats on that particular flight and are therefore prepared to pay what they’re worth.

      It’s all about demand.
      If demand on a particular day/flight/route/aircraft type is low, airlines will price lower to fill the planes and recoup some of their fixed costs.

      And conversely, if demand is high.
      This is why airlines want to find out as much as possible about us and our travel needs. They want to know what exactly is the maximum you (or your employer) will pay for you for each flight. That’s one reason frequent flyer schemes are so useful – the data the airline gets both individually and en masse.

    i can also recommend hong kong, yangshuo and beijing as being top destinations. however, as a china first-timer, u might consider doing the trip in the reverse order to jake (but then, u don’t save £££), as most young hongkongers understand english and backpacker-friendly yangshuo has a very relaxed feel, while many beijing tourist-facing organisations make such a good living from the hordes of chinese travellers that they see no need to make a special effort to cater for the odd foreigner.

    some of hong kong’s outlying islands, such as lamma island, have a small beach and reasonably-priced weekday non-luxury accommodation; nearby macau has better beaches and hotels. there’s no special reason to go to sanya unless the plane from london happens to stop there (china southern airlines), penang beating it on most counts.

    i found xi’an a disappointment, four nights being one too many. the terracotta warriors are a must-visit, top-notch attraction if u do go to xi’an, but nearly everything in xi’an itself is modern except the city wall and drum tower. attitudes in xi’an are still stuck in the communist era and the locals expect to receive grumpy service, so don’t expect an easy resolution to any problems with ur hotel or transport, even if u manage to make urself understood.
