Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The HfP chat thread – Friday 3rd September

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

We are running 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.

    I got the ‘new’ 2-4-1 voucher. It ‘helpfully’ let’s you know when a flight has more availability due to the new ‘benefit’ of booking into I class

  • Paul says:

    Am i remembering correctly that I can’t book a BA holiday with mixed cabin flights online? Or indeed at all? Want to do economy outbound club return….. website keeps kicking me out to initial page…

    • Dave says:

      You can, either call up or book the flight first online then add hotel/car hire

  • A says:

    Any recommendations for a nice hotel in Ibiza ? Looking for relaxation but also walkable to restaurants etc but away from the clubby side.

    7pines is out of budget sadly

    • Ashraj says:

      Me melia is a good option. Not exactly walking distance to a town but a short cab ride

  • Bill says:

    Used the Amex restaurant offer tonight at The Ivy Kensington. 2 adults and 2 kids. £180. I should have got a more expensive bottle of wine ! One of my fellow diners wouldn’t permit me to get a Bailey’s. Thanks for letting me know it was an informal restaurant. It was our first time and we happened to be visiting London this week

    • The Hunter says:

      Glad you enjoyed – I’d hope they don’t have baileys, and that that also helps put your mind at rest

    • Ryan says:

      If you pass another restaurant before the end of the year, have 2 beers and you’ll use up the remaining £20!
