Kaligo are currently running some eye watering offers to European destinations which could bag you enough AVIOS rewards for a Club Class Reward flight. Yes, just one measly weekend away could fund the flights for your next European getaway.
Kaligo Weekend offers
Here’s just some of the offers I found on Kaligo. Beware, offers change all the time, so by the time you read this, you likely will not be able to get the exact same deals. But, be prepared to be patient, and I am certain you can find a great deal.
The Best Western Amedia Berlin Kurfuerstendamm offers 31,600 points for a three night stay in January at a cost of £527 per night.
Or, you can book the Hotel Adkin Kempinski for 12,800 avios and £249 a night.
In Moscow, you can book the Hotel National Moscow, costing £222 per night and rewarding you with 13,400 AVIOS for 3 nights.
There’s plenty to choose from – you just need enough patience to find a tempting deal.
How much do I need for a AVIOS reward flight?
Now, as you may be aware, we tortured folks in the UK have to pay taxes and fees on our reward flights. These are a flat £35 for economy class and £50 for business. There’s literally no such thing as a free travel hacking flight in the UK! Arguably, you can often book budget tickets on Ryanair or WizzAir for that price, so my top tip is to use the reward flight to go somewhere not on the budget airline route.
For instance, Dubrovnik is always super popular, so paying just £35 including a cabin bag would be a steal. Tirana is another favourite for me. Yet to appear on the mass tourism radar, Albania is puffing its chest. It has gorgeous scenery, pumping nightlife and culture in abundance to tempt you.
How do I get the best Kaligo deals?
The easiest way is to register for an account and sign up for the Kaligo newsletter. Otherwise, you have to trawl through destinations, seeking a great deal, which can be a little painful. I heard about most of these offers on email, but it didn’t take long for me to find the motherload in that Prague offer.
