News in brief:
Best Western launching a £48 sale at 9am
Best Western is, we believe, launching a ‘£48, 48-hour’ flash sale at 9am today.
That’s it. We know nothing more!
However, if you are looking for a cheap UK hotel room for the coming weeks then you should take a look after 9am. The website is here.
Accor launches a special website for day room bookings
Accor has jumped on the ‘work from a hotel room’ trend and launched a special section of its website for day room bookings.
You can find it here.
It covers all brands, from Ibis up to Novotel, Mercure and beyond. Rates in London start from around £45 for day use at an Ibis.
I don’t know if bookings count for Accor Live Limitless points – presumably yes – or for bonus point promotions or elite night credit, which is a trickier question.
Last day to earn double Virgin Points on flight bookings
Today, Thursday 1st, is your last day to earn double Virgin Points on Virgin Atlantic flight bookings.
(Virgin Points is the new name for your Virgin Flying Club miles, as we explained in this article last week.)
Flights must be booked directly on the Virgin Atlantic or Virgin Holidays websites, or via the call centre, to qualify.
All travel classes qualify.
Flights must be Virgin Atlantic operated, not codeshares. There is no deadline for when the flight must be taken. There is no tier point bonus.
You can see full details of the double points offer on the Virgin Atlantic website here.
