Double Avios on hotels
Kaligo.com offer the same large selection and similar rates for hotels you get elsewhere on the web. In addition, you earn miles or points for a range of airline programs including British Airways, Avios, Qatar, Singapore Airlines, Flying Blue, and Virgin Atlantic.
It’s completely free to create an account. When you search for hotels, you choose your preferred loyalty program for earning rewards. The website then shows you exactly how many points or miles each booking earns. The miles or points are automatically credited into the program you’ve chosen after your purchase, but it can take up to 6 weeks. Read the terms of the hotels carefully before booking, as most are non-refundable.
They also have a useful feature that shows you the price on a couple of the major websites so you can see if you are getting a good deal. Personally, I will sometimes be willing to pay slightly more if there is a big bonus on offer. For example, on the promotion below, you could easily earn 20,000 Avios for a 3-night stay. It is a better option than buying miles usually if you look at the extra you paid versus the cost of buying them.
Kaligo has a flash sale on to get double Avios. You can now collect between 10-40 Avios per £1 spent on every hotel booking verus the usual 5-20 per £1

75% off Bahia Principe – All-inclusive suite in 5* Riviera Maya from £116pn
Bahia Principe have a fantastic sale on which is offering up to 75% off! Featured is a hotel that I have stayed at and would highly recommend. The Sian Ka’an hotel is on the Riviera Maya in Mexico. It is close to Tulum where you can visit the Mayan ruins as well as Akumal where you can swim with turtles. The all-inclusive hotel is adults only and situated close to 3 other hotels in the same group which you can also use.
Prices for a one-bedroom suite start at an amazing £116 per room per night. We stayed in the penthouse which is slightly more but comes with a rooftop terrace with jacuzzi.
There are two prices on the offer – one for non-refundable and another one that is very slightly more but allows cancellation. Personally, I would rather pay a bit more for the cancellation. For the Sian Ka’an hotel, it makes the hotel £130 per room per night which is still a bargain!
There are plenty of other hotels in the sale if you fancy a different area. Dominican Republic, Riviera Maya, Jamaica, and Tenerife are all included.
If you register in My BAHIA PRINCIPE loyalty scheme (free) you get up to 15% additional discount on top of the best offers available. Plus you get free cancellation and free transfers so it’s well worth doing.
