News in brief:
Save £100 on a £350 spend at Small Luxury Hotels
Small Luxury Hotels of the World has launched a new cashback offer with American Express.
I have it on my Platinum card and my wife has it on her Gold card. I’m not sure what other cards may have it.
If you stay at a participating hotel in the UK or Europe (click here for the list) before the end of the year, you will receive £100 cashback on a spend of £350+.
The offer is not well explained, unfortunately.
SLH is a marketing consortium, not a chain. This means that it isn’t clear:
whether you must book via the SLH website or not?
whether bookings via other channels, such as Hyatt (who market SLH hotels) or intermediaries such as Hotels.com count?
whether direct bookings count?
My impression – and don’t rely on this – is that as long as you pay at the hotel you are fine. This should even apply to ‘pay at hotel’ bookings made via Hotels.com. I don’t think the Small Luxury Hotels website needs to be used.
SLH also has a programme for luxury travel agents called Invited. This can get you valuable extra benefits at no additional cost. Our hotel booking partner Emyr Thomas can book these for you and as all Emyr bookings are ‘pay on departure’ it will trigger the cashback too. You can contact Emyr via this page of HfP – don’t book an SLH property without seeing what he can do.
PS. A lot of other Amex cashback offers have appeared this week. As well as 5% back on LNER train tickets, £100 off £500 at Cheval aparthotels and £50 off £400 at Hand Picked Hotels, there are a few high fashion deals including Armani, Zegna, Burberry, La Perla and Boss.
