Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

HFP EXCLUSIVE: Get up to 10,000 bonus Avios on hotel bookings at Kaligo.com

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

Head for Points and hotel booking site Kaligo.com, which awards Avios with every hotel you book, are running an EXCLUSIVE promotion during August and early September.

This is the fourth time we have run an offer like this with Kaligo.com and they have always been very popular with our readers.

If you spend over £700 on hotels at Kaligo.com before midnight on Thursday 10th September, across one or more bookings, you will receive 8,000 bonus Avios.

These points are in addition to the everyday benefit of 5 – 20 Avios per £1 spent you will receive for every booking all year round.  For clarification, you need to choose British Airways Executive Club as your earning preference prior to booking.

Even better, if you are a new customer and have never booked a hotel on Kaligo.com before, you will earn an additional 2,000 Avios with your first booking of any value.

That makes a possible total of 10,000 Avios for new customers and 8,000 Avios for existing Kaligo.com customers in addition to the everyday Avios earned if you manage to spend £700.

The stays need to be completed by 28th February 2021.

You MUST book via this special HFP promotional website in order to receive the bonus.

Kaligo Head for Points bonus Avios offer 

There are two parts to this promotion

  • If you spend over £700 on hotels at Kaligo.com, across one or multiple bookings by 10th September 2020, you will receive 8,000 bonus Avios.
  • If you are a new customer and have never before booked a hotel on Kaligo.com, you will earn an additional 2,000 Avios with your first booking of any value

For clarity ….

You DON’T need to make £700-worth of bookings to receive the 2,000 bonus Avios for being a new Kaligo.com customer.

Any hotel, anywhere, will do the trick (as long as you turn up and check in!) if you have never booked via Kaligo.com before.

Even a very cheap one night stay somewhere – perhaps £30-£40 – will trigger the 2,000 bonus Avios plus the base Avios for your stay.

New Kaligo customers are defined as customers who had previously never made a hotel booking with Kaligo under the same email address, loyalty program account, payment information or billing address.

Here is an example from the Kaligo.com site showing what you could earn if you are a new customer and reach the £700 spending threshold:

Kaligo Head for Points bonus Avios offer

You must book via our special Avios landing page

You MUST book at this special HFP promotional website in order to receive the bonus.

As usual with such promotions, you need to check your pricing before you book. Kaligo.com is not always the cheapest place to book – it depends on the property. However, when you factor in the value of the 8,000 bonus Avios – plus the base Avios you earn from your stay – it should look attractive.

If you are a new Kaligo.com customer, earning an extra 2,000 bonus Avios on your first booking – however cheap that booking may be – is a great result.

Remember that you will usually not earn points for your room spend in any hotel loyalty programme linked to the property you book if you use Kaligo.com (or indeed any third-party hotel booking site). Depending on the hotel, you may receive status benefits or points for your food and drink spend.

Conclusion

If you have £700 of hotel stays to book over the next four weeks, you should seriously consider routing them via Kaligo.com to take advantage of this offer.

Even if you have no ability to spend £700 with Kaligo.com by 10th September in order to earn 8,000 bonus Avios, you should – if you have never booked with them before – seriously think about putting one night their way in order to earn the 2,000 bonus Avios as a first-time booker.

Remember that you MUST book via this page on the Kaligo.com website.

It is fair to say that Kaligo.com’s customer service is excellent – their representatives even pop up on social media to answer queries – so you should have no concerns at all about your bonus posting properly. The company is also very punctual at posting your Avios posts once you have checked out. If you do have any issues, we can send you directly to the right people.

Thanks to the team at Kaligo.com for making this exclusive deal available to Head for Points readers.

    You forgot to mention on confirmation of booking, funds are immediately charged to credit card !!

    Rob, going to be my first booking on Kaligo. I cannot see the first booking bonus shown when trying to book though kaligo for the first time. Is this normal? I can only see the 2000 bonus avios from spending £100+ and then 500+ avios. Should I be expecting another 2000 bonus avios from booking first time with kaligo? Sorry but hope this makes sense.

    • Rob says:

      No, you won’t see the higher bonus because Kaligo doesn’t know if this is your 1st or 11th booking during the promo period and therefore whether your cumulative total goes over £700.

      You will get the Avios OK though, don’t worry. We can fix it if there are any issues.

    Kaligo have been very reliable during this pandemic managing to sort out some non refundable bookings at hotels that were open and extending my virgin voucher till end of next year as opposed to 6 months

    Similar deal here if you prefer Skywards miles

  • Spursdebs says:

    This might suit my two night stay in Dubai, the hotel loyalty scheme posts points to emirates sky rewards which is off zero use to me. At the moment I’m booking fully flexible rates as who knows if we will actually get there next January.

    could you explain the maths of the following. I just booked Maine Hermanus on booking.com for £352 a night. On Kaligo the same hotel has wildly varying prices starting on same date 15/7/21 breakfast free cancellation. 1 night £366 a night 8,096 avios total, 2 night £576 33,026 3 night £448 36,855. So you need a degree in astrophysics to work out if this is competitive or not !!! I think the extra 3300 for the 3 night stay for the extra avios might be good, but really not sure i’m doing the right calculation. How do I work out whether to cancel my Booking.com booking and redo it. This is ignoring your special offer.

    • Rob says:

      This can be an issue with Kaligo at times, because they pull in prices from various different wholesalers. In your example it doesn’t look too good.

      • Mike Asplin says:

        Very odd to see nightly rate go up then down!!!

        However the number of avios seems extremely high so maybe even justifies the extra cost? Lets take the 3 night version which is what i have booked. i haven’t paid anything to Booking.com so good chance I will not be able to use my Amex on site so will earn zero avios. So if I were to change my booking I pay £300 more, but earn 36,855 Avios or 0.81p per Avios. I sometimes buy Avios at 50% bonus which is 1.07p and to buy at the recent 75% bonus 0.92p. So isn’t this offer equivalent to about a 100% bonus? Obvious depends on the difference in price and if you are earning Avios on the spend on the alternative. Even if i was earning 1.5 avios per £ it doesn’t change the calculation much. Just want to check I’m not being stupid somewhere? obvious your offer bonus make it even better.
