For those of you who were quick enough to get a ticket for the Head for Points 10th Birthday Party next Wednesday, sponsored by Barclaycard, we look forward to seeing you at the Renaissance St Pancras hotel.
Thank you for your support – we were genuinely unsure what the demand for tickets was going to be like, post-covid. As it happens, all 500 tickets sold out in seven minutes!
When you arrive you will be given a raffle ticket. We have arranged some very decent prizes which we will draw at around 8pm. Note that you must still be in the room at 8pm or you will forfeit your prize.
Attendees will receive an email on Monday with final details about the event.
We like to keep the raffle shorter for our summer parties but I hope you agree that we’ve got some good stuff thanks to our industry partners. Here’s what you can win.
Win a Business Class holiday in Malaysia
Malaysia Airlines is kindly providing the headline prize:
- Two Business Class flights to Kotu Kinabulu in Malaysian Borneo, via Kuala Lumpur, plus a two day package in a premium chalet at the Sutera Mantanani Resort on Mantanani Besar island provided by the Sabah Tourism Board and Malaysia Airlines
The winner will be able to arrange their flights to build in time in Kuala Lumpur and possibly even Langkawi, as well as a couple of days in Borneo.
The Malaysia Airlines team will be at the party and will be happy to chat about their services. Remember that, as a oneworld alliance partner, you can earn and spend Avios on Malaysia Airlines, as well as earning British Airways Executive Club tier points on cash tickets. British Airways no longer flies to Kuala Lumpur so Malaysia Airlines is now your obvious route to Malaysia.
Win three luxury European breaks with Marriott Bonvoy
Meanwhile, Marriott Bonvoy – which has been a great help in securing the party venue for us – is very kindly supplying three impressive European city break hotel stays:
- A two night stay for two people in an Atelier Suite at Excelsior Hotel Gallia, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Milan including breakfast, one epicurean experience for two people in the Terrazza Restaurant and one treatment for two in the Private Shiseido SPA suite, courtesy of Marriott Bonvoy

Other prizes include:
