News in brief:

Good Newcastle hotel deal on Groupon

It’s been a while since we ran a Groupon hotel package, but reader Daniel flagged up that a Newcastle deal we covered back in June is still available.

As per this page of Groupon, the Hotel Indigo in Newcastle – it isn’t named but it is clearly the Indigo – is offering:

  • rooms for two, with breakfast and 1pm check out, from £69
  • King room with balcony for two, with breakfast and 1pm check out, from £89

You will get an extra 10% off if this is your first Groupon purchase (or you create a new account) and use promo code TRIPLE.

It is definitely the Hotel Indigo. The PR photo used by Groupon is the same one we used in our article here on a 2021 Travelzoo deal.

Not all dates are available, but they are clearly shown on Groupon and you need to lock in your date at the time of booking. You can book for up to 31st December 2022.

You won’t earn any IHG One Rewards points and you won’t get any elite benefits, but the cash saving – which should be at least £50 – makes up for it.

Save £200 on an easyJet Holiday with American Express

American Express has launched a new cashback offer with easyJet Holidays.

If you are targetted for this offer it will show under the ‘Offers’ tab on your online statement page or in the Amex app. You need to click ‘Save to Card’ to activate.

The deal gets you £200 cashback on a £1,000+ booking with easyJet Holidays. Your payment needs to be processed by 30th November.

Flights must depart from UK airports, but apart from that there is no onerous small print.

    Although interesting with the slots, KLM’s slot with arrival of 1400 then uses it’s 1505 departure. Virgin wouldn’t be able to turn around a longhaul plane in that time like KLM can with a shorthaul, so they will need to tweak the existing schedule to utilise these fully.

  • John T says:

    Wouldn’t Virgin use the HKG slot timings for Seoul given the flights are similar lengths and the timings would work well?

  • James says:

    Is it possible to split the cost of an EasyJet holiday across multiple cards?

  • James Harper says:

    I’ve read elsewhere that the slots Virgin have gained are Aeroflot slots. Would KLM really have twelve to part with? I know in the evenings they have a couple that would appear to be spare – operating AMS-LHR with E190s in rapid succession when a 739 would probably do the job but twelve?

    I believe Loganair are also Aeroflot ‘beneficiaries’.
