Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The new HFP chat thread – Sunday 26th July

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

We have decided to run this new daily chat thread on Head for Points.

Historically, the daily ‘Bits’ articles were the de facto repository for random comments and questions.  It is unlikely that the news flow will be so big over the next few weeks that we will need many ‘Bits’ articles, however.

The comments under this article are where you should post questions about travel and, indeed, anything else on your mind.  At this tricky time, and given that many of you are stuck at home self-isolating, we want the HFP community to have a place to chat.

Please only comment under the main articles on the site if your comment is directly related to the topic of the article.  This has long-term benefits as its keeps the commentary relevant for people who read those articles in the future.

By default, HFP shows the last page of comments under the article.  If you want to see the first page of comments and read them all from beginning to end in order, click here:  The page will refresh with this article but the comments will now show the first page and not the last page.

Old chat threads are hidden from the HFP home page.  If you want to look for something in an old thread, click here.  This brings up all the articles in our ‘General’ category which includes the chat threads.

    Can curve work with Cot? I am trying with a place that take Mastercard debit but it is not going through

      I’ve tried Curve + COT for payments to HMRC and Revolut top up – get a ‘payment declined’ message from Curve each time

    • Jonathan says:

      Yes it works, but I had one IT distributor where it didn’t. Raised a complaint to CoT and they could see the problem (although would not share with me what). Gave me 10k CoT points for the inconvenience and said it will be fixed within a month. True to their word it was fixed and I can now happily use CoT with Curve just about anywhere other than financial institutions.
