Kaligo.com is running a double Avios promotion on ALL hotel stays booked this month for stays from now until the end of June 2020.
This means that you can collect between 10 and 40 Avios per £1 spent on every hotel booking, depending on the category of hotel. You can see the special promotion page on the Kaligo.com website here.
Obviously you would be waiving your usual hotel benefits if you have status since you are booking via a third party. You also wouldn’t be earning any hotel loyalty points as these would be non-qualifying stays.
However, for independent hotels or stays at chains where you have no status or do not collect their points, this could be a very lucrative offer and give your Avios balance a big boost.
PS. Before you book, remember that Rocketmiles – a very similar business to Kaligo.com – is currently offering 5,000 miles in MANY programmes to new customers with their first stay. Click for our article.
The clever thing to do is to credit the stay to Heathrow Rewards which gives you the possibility to transfer out to a variety of airline partners – including Avios and Virgin Flying Club – and potentially get a conversion bonus at a later date. Rob is testing out this offer tonight so there will be an update on it next week.
