Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Here is the (almost) full list of raffle prizes, worth £4000+, for the Head for Points Winter party

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

Roll up, roll up, the full list of HfP Christmas / Winter / whatever party raffle prizes has now been finalised.  We have over £4,000-worth of goodies on offer.

Our headline prizes have kindly been donated by our party sponsor, Marriott Bonvoy, but we want to thank everyone who has donated a prize.  We’re really appreciative of your support.

For the first time, we are selling additional raffle tickets on the night.  Everyone who attends will receive one free ticket.  However, additional tickets can be purchased for £1 each.

The money raised will go to Orbis.  Orbis works to fight ‘avoidable’ blindness, and sends its flying eye hospital and volunteer surgeons into areas where procedures we would take for granted are not performed.  It trains local medical staff at each location so that it can help create a long-term solution rather than just a short burst of one-off activity.

There will be a couple of Orbis representatives at the party who can explain more about their work and take your money.  If every guest purchased just two additional tickets we would raise over £1,500 on the night, including the donation from party ticket sales.

Onto the raffle prizes.

Our grand prize, generously donated by Marriott Bonvoy, is 2 nights in the five-star Ritz Carlton Budapest, including breakfast and access to the spa. Situated in the heart of the city, the Ritz Carlton Budapest offers an authentic experience of Hungary’s capital city with the luxury of five-star amenities.

Opened in 2016, the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Budapest is set within a protected historic building, located on Elizabeth Square, with views over St Stephens Basilica.  Whoever wins this is going to have a fantastic short break.

Next up, two nights bed and breakfast at the five-star Domes Miramare Corfu, part of Marriott’s Luxury Collection. This adults-only resort looks very impressive and has an illustrious past, having played host to many the film star and royal in it’s past.

With a private beach, three on-site restaurants and a stunning pool, this will make for a seriously chilled few days for the lucky winner.

If you’re lucky enough to win our next prize, you’ll get three nights bed and breakfast, plus access to the spa at the Prague Marriott. Close to iconic sights such as Old Town Square and the Charles Bridge, a stay at the Prague Marriott will be the perfect spot for a weekend break.

Marriott Bonvoy has also donated a voucher for a two night stay at any Moxy hotel in the Belvar collection.

Moxy is one of Marriott’s youngest lifestyle brands and offers a concept developed around the preferences of modern travellers for efficiency, comfort and design.  They are surprisingly smart and well run, in our experience, and you will enjoy your stay.  You can pick your property from a list which includes many German cities, Milan, Glasgow, London x 3, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and York.

    Has anyone stayed at the Domes Miramare Corfu?? This has just been brought to my attention and looks fantastic

  • Matt says:

    Shoestring – Are you going?
    I want to buy you a couple of drinks for some of the great tips (and some of the good laughs) you have given me over the last couple of months!

    • Shoestring says:

      cheers Matt – unfortunately I can’t make it due to children commitments down here in Cornwall but I appreciate the thought!


      Flybe’s illegal state aid amounts to deferring about £10 million of APD for a few months.

      Suck on that, IAG! 🙂 You haven’t got much of a case.

      I await with great interest the APD announcement in the March budget.

      • Doug M says:

        If the 10 million is true that’s loose change for Virgin and the investment company. Why risk the negative press, the real downside of which is consequential loss of bookings because the risk the airline disappears.
        Wonder if there’s more to this.

  • BJ says:

    Awesome list of prizes, well done HFP. The FlyBE model aircraft might turn out to be the most valuable prize of all.

  • WaynedP says:

    Thank you Rob, Rhys & Sinead and all your sponsors (esp Marriott Bonvoy) for a splendid event last night. Great charity and good opportunity to chat with some interesting folk. Although I didn’t come away with any of the raffle prizes, I was delighted to be the lucky charm to the gent I was chatting to who claimed to never win anything at these events, then proceeded to be the evening’s very first prize-winner, walking off with 20,000 Avios.
    Any offers from anyone to take me along as their lucky charm to the next event gratefully received 🙂
