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.
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:
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.
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.
