In the hope, if not the expectation, that we will see a return to some international travel during May, we have decided to revive this ‘last chance’ feature. It ran every two weeks for a number of years until we suspended it last March.
We are also planning to revive the monthly credit card and hotel round-ups as well – keep an eye out for those.
The aim of this feature is to summarise offers that are ending soon. Years of experience of running offers for HfP readers has made it very clear that a large proportion like to leave things to the last minute ….
The list is still a little thin, but I am hoping for a surge in activity post 17th May. There may be a few things we’ve missed as we rebuild this feature – please let us know in the comments.
Here are registration links for the current hotel promotions from the major chains:
Hilton Honors – double or triple points on stays between 3rd May and 6th September – register here
IHG Rewards – earn double base points on your 2nd stay after registration and 3x base points on third and subsequent stays after registration. Offer runs between 15th May and 16th August. Register here.
World of Hyatt – earn 2,500 bonus points for every two nights you stay until 15th June. Nights do not need to be consecutive and you receive an additional free night voucher after 10 nights. Register here by 15th May
Marriott, Accor and Radisson are not currently running global promotions.
