Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Important dates for your diary – offers about to close which you shouldn’t miss

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

The aim of this feature is to summarise flight, hotel and points offers that are ending soon.  Everything listed below has been covered on HfP in recent weeks, but 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 ….

It pulls together the different deals mentioned in our daily articles and on our Top Avios Points Earning Offers, Top Hotel Bonus Points Offers and Top UK Credit Card Offers pages.

    BA hols/double tier points extended to next March?

    • Gareth says:

      Thought so

    • Tom1 says:

      Yes – are there any guides on how to maximise these oppos. My New tier year starts mid Nov so could be good timing.

      • Will says:

        London to LAX business routing through Helsinki and nee york. 1440 TP if booked as a holiday, flight component pricing around £1600

  • Ron says:

    I have a club world BA hol that was booked about 2 days before the double tier points offer for Nov travel. Do you know if I will get the double tier points or was I too early booking? Thanks

    • Jill ( Kinkell) says:

      Think you’re OK. Any holiday booking of 5 nights or more until March. Check out page on BA.

  • southlondonphil says:

    Rob’s own page on the BA Holdays Double Tier Points promo says the booking deadline was extended through to 22nd March and so is clearly not “about to close”. Whoever (auto-)compiles these reminders isn’t checking for any updated Ts &Cs beforehand. Sloppy.

    @Ron, per the offer page on BA’s website, existing holiday bookings DO count for the Double Tier Points offer.
