Between 10th August and 10th September we are running an exclusive promotion with hotel booking site Kaligo.com, the booking site which awards Avios points with every hotel you book.
If you spend over £700 on hotels at Kaligo.com before midnight on 10th September, across one or numerous bookings, you will receive 8,000 bonus Avios. These points are in addition to the everyday benefit of 5 – 10 Avios per £1 spent you will receive for every booking all year round.
This offer is open to both new and existing Kaligo.com customers and is valid for stays until 28th February 2021. Full details of our Kaligo offer are in this HfP article.
There is a second part to our exclusive Kaligo.com promotion which I think is getting overlooked because it is a little tricky to push two different marketing messages at once.
If you are a new customer and have never before booked a hotel on Kaligo.com before, you will earn an additional 2,000 Avios with your first booking of any value.
You have until 10th September to book but your stay can be at any point up to 28th February 2021.
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.
You must register
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 2,000 bonus Avios points – plus the base Avios you earn from your stay – on a potentially low cost one-night stay they should be looking pretty good indeed.
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.
Even if you have no intention of spending £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.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (June 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards.
Until 18th July 2022 there is an astonishing special offer on these cards. You get 50,000 Avios on the Avios Plus Mastercard and 10,000 Avios on the free Avios Mastercard. You can apply here. We strongly recommend getting the Avios Plus card whilst this offer is running.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
SPECIAL OFFER: The sign-up bonus on Amex Gold is increased from 20,000 Membership Rewards points to 30,000 Membership Rewards points until 19th July 2022. This card is free for the first year.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,000 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
