Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The HfP chat thread – Sunday 13th December

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.

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.

    Not sure if it helps but I stayed in the Hilton GI at Emirates Old Trafford on Friday (Tier 3). Purpose of my visit was to pick up my son from university and I wanted to break up the journey (3 hrs each way).
    I got an email about a week before my trip asking me to confirm that my travel was essential – I called HGI to explain why. They consulted with their managers and 30 mins late I rec’d another email confirming that having reviewed the Govmnt website they were happy my travel fell into the ‘Other’ category (apparently there are 4 categories).
    No issues at all when I arrived.

    Apologies I’m late to the party. What is bendy?
