Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Black Friday: BA Holidays, Vueling, Hotels.com, Melia, Qatar, Lastminute.com, SWISS, Icelandair

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

Black Friday is always an odd day on Head for Points, especially this year when the appetite to sell is far greater than the appetite to buy.

We are bundling today’s Black Friday travel offers into two articles. You can see Black Friday offers that started last week in this article.

The British Airways ‘20% off all flights’ deal is covered in this article.

The Virgin Atlantic cash sale is covered here. The ‘50% off all redemption flights’ deal is covered here.

We may release another article during the day if anything spectacular appears which we were not told about in advance.

If you are reading this by email and the formatting looks a mess, apologies. You will need to pop over to the website.

  • RUBEN MENEZES says:

    for does not by not be aware, I would avoid LASTMINUTE at all cost. It took us close to over 6 months to get any refund back from a cancelled hotel booking. It is impossible to speak to any real person on the phone.

      Agree with this comment. Had the cheek to send an email when the refund finally arrived with ‘I hope you continue to choose us in the future’… This wont be the case.
