Radisson Hotels has launched a new sale. Running until 31st January, you can save up to 25% on stays until 31st August 2021.

There is no minimum stay duration and breakfast is included for all bookings.

Refreshingly, you don’t have to pre-pay in order to get the discount and you can cancel until 24 hours before your arrival. With all of the uncertainty surrounding travel at the moment, this is a welcome decision from Radisson. You can see full details of the sale here.

Remember that if you have American Express Platinum, you will have Gold status in Radisson Rewards. This will get you extra benefits on your stay.

Join Radisson Rewards to get the highest sale discount

You need to be a member of Radisson Rewards to get the full 25% sale discount. Non-members get 15% off.

However, it is free to join Radisson Rewards – you can join here.

The programme offers some attractive benefits including a high earnings rate (starting at 20 points per $1 spent, plus any status bonus).

You can read our most recent two-part review of the Radisson Rewards programme here (part 1) and here (part 2).

One feature we particularly like about Radisson Rewards is ‘premium rewards’. This allows hotels to offer superior rooms for redemption at a fixed premium over a standard room.

If you are looking for aspirational rewards, take a look at the new Radisson Blu Resort Maldives which has just opened

All villas, either beach or overwater, have a private swimming pool.  They range in size from 215 sq m to 410 sq m for a three bedroom.

Food and drink comes courtesy of seven restaurants (plus room service) which seems a little overkill for a 128 villa resort!  Breakfast is included in all bookings which will keep your incidental costs down.

Amazingly, redemptions cost the same as any other luxury Radisson hotel despite the high cash rates – just 70,000 Radisson Rewards points per night.

Where can you find Radisson hotels?

Radisson has approximately 1,400 hotels worldwide but have the strongest presence in Europe, particularly in Scandinavia and Germany.

In the UK, there are six Radisson brands operating: upscale Radisson Blu (including sub-brand Radisson Blu Edwardian), budget brand Park Inn, The Radisson Collection, ‘upper-upscale’ Park Plaza and Radisson RED.

The newest brand, launched first in the UK, is Radisson Individuals which we covered here. This is for independent hotels which want to come under the Radisson umbrella to benefit from their marketing clout and the Radisson Rewards membership base, whilst still retaining their own personality.

We have reviewed a number of Radisson properties in the past, most recently the newly refurbished Radisson Hotel at London Heathrow and its next door neighbour, the funky Radisson RED, pictured below.

How to earn extra Radisson Rewards points from UK credit cards

You don’t need to worry about being stuck with a handful of Radisson Rewards points if you make a booking in the January sale.

You can earn additional Radisson Rewards points by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards including the American Express Preferred Rewards Gold, the The Platinum Card from American Express and the American Express Rewards credit card

Membership Rewards points convert at 1:3 into Radisson Rewards points which is a very attractive rate.  If you look at our main article on Membership Rewards points here, you will see that we value Radisson Rewards transfers more highly than all other hotel redemptions.

The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 3 Radisson Rewards points.

Even better, holders of The Platinum Card receive free Radisson Rewards Gold status for as long as they hold the card.  It also comes with Hilton Honors Gold, Marriott Bonvoy Gold and MeliaRewards Gold status.  We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here.

Conclusion

You can book in the Radisson Hotels January sale until 31st January.

Remember that all bookings come with free breakfast, you don’t need to pay in advance and all bookings can be cancelled if required.

You can find full details of the offer, and how to book, on their website here.

    Are Radisson offering status matches at present?

    Emailed them through their website and got no reply.

  • Phil says:

    The sale seems to be limited to a very small number of properties in Scandinavia, Russia, UAE and South Africa?

  • AndyGWP says:

    Thanks for highlighting the sale.

    As a side note, can you please ask your website designers about making all clickable links open in new windows?

    (I know I can make it do it myself, but its the inconsistency of when it needs to be done that’s frustrating – the last link in this article does not open in a new window, but most of the other links I clicked in the article do)

    Automatically overriding website links to work in one way (or the other) would alleviate the human error that can occur when publishing 🙂

    Not as good as it sounds!
    For June 2021, I tried both hotels in Niagra, Ontario with no availability for this promotion and all hotels in Toronto require minimum of 10 nights stay to get January Sale discount.
