Best Western has launched its annual Winter Sale with decent deals all over Great Britain.
Full details are on the Best Western website here
The sale offers up to 30% off the Flexible Bed and Breakfast Rate if you are a Best Western Rewards member.
That said ….. basing the ‘30% saving’ on the Flexible Bed & Breakfast rate is not exactly fair. Sale rates are non refundable so it is cheeky to compare them to a refundable rate. However, these deals do offer a saving on the usual ‘advanced purchase’ price. Full pre-payment needs to be made at time of booking.
This rate is available for stays until 31st March 2020 and can be booked between now and 31st March 2020.
The 30% savings are for Best Western Rewards members only. If you aren’t a Best Western Rewards member you can sign up when booking your stay.
If you’re not familiar with Best Western Rewards, we ran a full overview recently which you can read here.
Earn double Best Western Rewards points too ….
In addition to sale pricing, Best Western Rewards is currently offering double points on stays until 17th November.
This offer is valid at all Best Western hotels except for those in the US, Canada and Caribbean.
You MUST register prior to your stay via this page of the Best Western Rewards site.
… or earn Avios or Virgin Flying Club miles from your stay
Best Western is the newest major hotel chain to become a British Airways partner. Whilst you have been able to earn Avios for the past 18 months or so, many people still seem unaware of the partnership.
You can either earn a flat 500 Avios points per stay OR collect Best Western Rewards points as usual and then convert them into Avios as a lump sum. You can credit the points to any Avios scheme – BAEC, Air Italy, Iberia Plus or Vueling Club. Aer Lingus AerClub is not on the list but if you selected Vueling Club and gave your 3081xxxxxx number it should work OK.
Virgin Atlantic offer the same deal of 500 Virgin Flying Club miles per stay. Full details are on this page of the Virgin Atlantic site. Note that you cannot convert lump sums of Best Western Rewards points to Virgin Atlantic – the only option is to take 500 miles per stay.
A list of other participating airlines can be seen in the dropdown menu on the sign-up page – it includes American (250 per stay), Lufthansa (500) and Flying Blue (250) amongst other.
Best Western Rewards will also match your existing hotel or Virgin Atlantic status
Best Western has a generous status match policy. If you have status with any other hotel chain, it will be matched.
The form you need to send them can be found on the Best Western website here (PDF).
You can also match Virgin Flying Club status. A Virgin Silver will receive Best Western Platinum whilst a Virgin Gold receives Best Western Diamond. Full details are on the Virgin website here.
