Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The HfP chat thread – Thursday 29th October

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

We have decided to run this daily chat thread on Head for Points during the coronavirus outbreak.

Historically, the daily ‘Bits’ articles were the de facto repository for random comments and questions.  With the news flow being lighter, we are running fewer ‘Bits’ articles.

The comments under this article are where you should post questions about travel and, indeed, anything else on your mind.  At this tricky time, and given that many of you are at home, we want the HfP community to have a place to chat.

Please only comment under the main articles on the site if your comment is directly related to the topic of the article.  This has long-term benefits as it keeps the commentary relevant for people who read those articles in the future.

By default, HfP shows the last page of comments under the article.  If you want to see the first page of comments and read them all from beginning to end in order, click here: https://www.headforpoints.com/2020/10/29/the-hfp-chat-thread-thursday-29th-october/comment-page-1.  The page will refresh with this article but the comments will now show the first page and not the last page.

Old chat threads are hidden from the HfP home page.  If you want to look for something in an old thread, click here.  This brings up all the articles in our ‘General’ category which includes the chat threads.

    Using the promotion code EZR to search for London Marriott hotel night and the price is approx. £30 higher than normal search (without using EZR). Would you get £50 daily credit on this using EZR?

    • TGLoyalty says:

      EZR is the welcome back rate which is basically 25% off BFR and free breakfast, some of the luxury hotels have 50 EUR credit too but it would show in the rate detail if it did.

      • Kevin says:

        It doesn’t show at all perhaps it is better not to risk it if no guarantee of 50 euro daily credit while the rate is higher comparing than no EZR being used.

        • TGLoyalty says:

          I think the only ones were The Westbury, Edition, The Wellesley and The Langley but no breakfast just a credit (I think)

          Some are offering 8am checkin and 8pm! Checkout that is well worth a look!
