American Express has launched a new offer with the Relais & Chateaux hotel group.
You will receive £200 cashback on a spend of £1,000+ by 20th October.
A lot of top independent hotels in the UK are part of Relais & Chateaux. The offer is valid across Europe and is especially strong in France. Some US hotels are also taking part.
Whilst you are asked to book via the Relais & Chateaux website, the offer is triggered by checkout spend.
This means that you could book via American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts (if you have The Platinum Card) for the extra benefits it brings – as long as you choose ‘pay on departure’. I would also strongly recommend asking our luxury hotel booking partner Emyr Thomas (click here) for a quote as he can usually get you extra benefits on your stay.
From the UK list, I would highlight:
- Chewton Glen
- The Vineyard at Stockcross
- Lucknam Park
- Gidleigh Park
- Longueville Manor (for anyone heading to Jersey)
- 11 Cadogan Gardens
- Grantley Hall – which we just reviewed and loved (image below)
…… but there are plenty more to choose from.
PS. I also have a ‘£100 back on £500 spend at The Peninsula or Mandarin Oriental’ and ‘£80 back on a £300 spend at Enterprise Rent-A-Car‘.
