Double Avios extended

You may have seen Kaligo’s offer for Double Avios on Black Friday. They have now extended the deadline for booking until the end of the month.

Kaligo lets you earn miles and Avios on your hotel bookings when you book through them. They are not always the cheapest hotel provider, but when you get a good promotion, it is often worth paying a little more to get the extra miles or Avios. 

Their Black Friday offer is:

  • Double miles/points on every hotel booking!
  • 550,000 hotels and 40+ airline loyalty programmed to choose from
  • Available only via
  • Promotion Offer Period ends 31 December, 2019
  • Stay Period ends 30 June, 2020

An example would be the Bellagio in Vegas where I could get 11638 Avios from a two-night booking. But I could find it around £50 a night cheaper on another site. Often the price differences are much less or about the same.

Winter sun in Abu Dhabi from £1212

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

If like me, you are fed up with the cold and damp already, you might fancy a break in the sun that’s not too far away. Abu Dhabi can be perfect for this with only around a 7-hour flight and much cheaper hotel prices than neighbouring Dubai. I have stayed at the Shangri-La, Fairmont and the Rosewood, all of which I would recommend. 

The flights are with British Airways and start in Dublin, which is a cheap place to on Avios for positioning if you want to keep costs down. Multiple flights per day also make it a simple place to position to and from. 

The rules of the fare are:

  • Book by: 6 December 2019
  • Travel: Permitted 10 Jan 20 through 30 Jun 20 on the first international sector. 
  • Minimum stay: a Saturday night
  • Maximum stay: 12 months
  • Transfers: Unlimited
  • Stopovers: No
  • Refundable: No
  • Changeable: Yes

You can book direct with British Airways here or find the cheapest online travel agent price with Skyscanner.
