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 pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Roll up, roll up, the full list of HFP Christmas / Winter / whatever party raffle prizes has now been finalised!  (Nearly!)  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!

Ritz Carlton Budapest

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.

Moxy Heathrow

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.

    We did Domes Miramare last August BH. Over £400 a night in high season as a paid rate but very reasonable as a Bonvoy redemption – even just purchasing points to complete the redemption was cheaper than paying the cash rate… So guess the prize winner could extend by doing this. Very expensive to eat and drink in the resort (as expected) although the poolside snack lunches were reasonable. It’s only a short walk to a mini mart and to the many tavernas in Moraitika. I thought it was a great hotel. Especially in school holidays for there to be no kids taking over the pool.

    Anyone willing to buy tickets on my behalf? Happy to contribute but couldn’t get tickets to the event as it sold out so quickly!

    • TGLoyalty says:

      if you can make it still I’d email Rhys I remember seeing msgs from people with 1 or 2 spares someone even had 3 (I don’t know why they would buy 4 tickets)

  • Neil Donoghue says:

    Fantastic list of prizes! Looking forward to the event even more now!

  • Doug M says:

    Nice list of prizes. Some silly negativity some days. If you like Orbis just send them a few quid.

    OT: Some good prices from Dublin to Orlando in business via AA at the moment, sub £1200. There’s a DUB to Philadelphia flight on an A330 and direct to MCO from there. You’d pre-clear in Dublin which many prefer.
    I think £1200 for an Ex-EU to the USA is as good as it gets now. This would also earn 360TP if that’s your thing.

  • Anon says:

    Can people who can’t attend still get a raffle ticket?

    • Marand says:

      Would be interested a well.

    • Rob says:

      Not this time. We’re still experimenting with “the charity thing”. If it works well we may open it up next time, although it requires us to plan far further in advance.

    • Al Pal says:

      good idea since good cause and lots more people reading than attending the events

  • memesweeper says:

    Err, are Orbis flying a tri-star? or is that a really old stock photo?

    • Rhys says:

      DC-10 I believe. They don’t need state of the art aircraft because they are stationary for a week or two at a time.

      • jimA says:

        DC 10 indeed ex Laker plane I believe

        There was an excellent documentary a couple of years ago -focussing on the excellent work they do on the ground and the hard work needed to keep the aircraft flying between stops

        Just think what they could do with the extra space a A380 would offer !

        • Mike says:

          I think it’s a DC10 but with an upgraded glass cockpit. Crewed by FedEx guys – Sam Chui had a great video about Orbis recently on YouTube.

        • ChrisC says:

          But a lot off the places they go to can’t handle an A380 which would restrict the people they could help.

  • mutley says:

    is there a dress code or will the usual geek chic suffice?
