The HfP chat thread – Wednesday 13th October

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.

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.

    Can the FHR only be used by Platinum customers? Also, if I get a platinum card, what is the referral bonus if I refer someone from it?

  • Jason says:

    Just gone to book a flight in February to JFK from LHR and came up with a lower price of £2187. After looking at a few different routes looks like the prices have gone down on most in First. These fares are not coming up on the lowest fare finder yet, just when you go through to actually chose the flights!….sake coming ???

    Just received my Virgin CC, will cash fee applied if paying off Solihull? I always use HH card without any charge. Thanks

    • Blair says:

      Try and see. No one has reported as yet the charges incurring

    • Jonathan says:

      Don’t use Revolut

    • Mr. AC says:

      No fee as of last week in my experience. However there’s some issue on Solihull’s side that was confirmed to me by their call center staff – payments are getting applied with a significant delay, so pay early.

    Car hire company for Tenerife south airport – recommendations please !

  • Anthony says:

    If you’ve got a booking for a restaurant on the Amex platinum dining offer, I’d check to make sure that the restaurant is still on there. We’d got an upcoming reservation at Core based on the fact that it was on the list when the offer first launched, just checked and it’s not on the list anymore. Spoken to Amex and they confirmed it’s been removed

  • Imran says:

    On the way back to the UK. Have been away for a long time. Has the petrol situation eased out since last month? Need to fill diesel in my car upon arrival.

    • Graham Walsh says:

      No issues. I drove into the Tesco garage this morning. No queuing.

    • TGLoyalty says:

      All the idiots have full tanks and Jerry cans now

      • Aston100 says:

        And that’s just the army.

      • Harrier25 says:

        I’m waiting for the entertaining news reports of a few car boots and/or garages going up in flames. It’s bound to happen especially now that they’re getting back to bulk buying toilet rolls again and they’re bound to store them next to the jerry cans!
