Earn bonus MeliaRewards points in their Summer sale

Spanish hotel group Melia has launched its Summer sale – see here.

You can book until 16th May, for stays up to 31st December 2021.

There is an extra quirk to the sale. If you are a MeliaRewards member, you will receive an extra 5,000 to 15,000 points towards a ‘points and cash’ 4+ night stay at certain properties.

Earn bonus Melia Rewards points in their Summer sale

For example, I have 7,500 MeliaRewards points in my account. If I try to book 4 nights at the funky ME Ibiza, I am credited with another 15,000 points and can suddenly use 22,500 points to part-pay my booking. If I don’t complete the booking, the extra 15,000 points disappear. This is fiddly but does result in an additional saving.

Remember that, as well as various resort properties in Spain, Melia also has properties in major cities across Europe. Key properties include Gran Meliá Palacio de los Duques in Madrid, reviewed here, ME London and Gran Melia in Rome, reviewed here by a HfP competition winner. It is also opening INNSIDE Newcastle once restrictions lift.

Remember that if you have American Express Platinum you can join MeliaRewards at Gold level for extra benefits. Here are the benefits of MeliaRewards Gold.

MeliaRewards is also an Avios partner allowing you to convert your points after your stay.

Full details of the sale are on this page of the Melia website.
