If you are thinking of booking a hotel stay in 2018, there are 3 places you should check.

This offer is exclusive to the website headforpoints so you should check here for details. In a nutshell you get 10,000 Avios Bonus in addition to the usual Avios that you would ordinarily get, if you spend £700 on hotels at before midnight on Saturday 31st March. You MUST register via this link to benefit from this promotion.

Is this offer any good? Kaligo is relatively competitive and i value 10,000 Avios at £200 (see my Avios valuation). So I searched for Hotel Hermitage in Monte Carlo 5-8th March which comes in at a rate of £916.13 for 3 nights for a Double Deluxe Room including breakfast plus 14,600 Avios. Total value of Avios (to me, your valuation may be different) is £290.

You are certainly getting good return in Avios, BUT if I book the same 3 nights through our Luxury Travel Concierge you would also get:
Breakfast for two people per bedroom.
Afternoon Tea worth 90€.
Upgrade of one category, based on availability at time of check-in (this usually excludes suites).
Early check-in/late check-out, subject to availability.
Complimentary basic Internet in all guest rooms.
Complimentary welcome gift (lovely chocs at this hotel).

So you should check both options before booking.

The third place you should check is Club1Hotels who often have better deals on hotels than any other hotel website. For a limited time Club1Hotels are giving Luxury Travel Diary readers a FREE 1-yr Beta Explorer Membership worth $675/£510. Join for free here (you can register from any country in the world).
