Hotel Living


You might have noticed lately that I've been hopping about the place a fair bit. Over the past month or so I've probably been visiting London weekly. Even weeks when I think I won't be going anywhere I somehow always getting attracted by it's lure, or lets face it something like a Boden press show ;)

Although Bristol to London is just under two hours and so totally do-able in a day occasionally when something requires a 9am start it's hard to imagine leaving the house so earlier or in fact being able to afford peak time train tickets *shakes fist*. In these cases I'm probably more likely to head up the evening before after Tom's got home from work and I can hand over and rush out the door.

The other day I was faced with one of these dilemma's and after a busy week there was nothing I wanted less than to navigate leaving the house at 5 something and only returning late that evening. Thankfully for me I had the opportunity to test out Hotels.com loyalty scheme. They idea being that like lots of loyalty cards you buy ten and get the 11th free.


When I used to work as a P.A my office was next to a brilliant sandwich shop of which loyalty scheme I was part of. I have to say 'free sandwich day' was one of my favourites and handing over my fully stamped collection of ten dots and receiving my favourite sandwich for free did put a spring in my step. Same goes for 'free latte day' with my Asda Living cafe card. I know I how to live.

I love the idea that if you are the sort of person that often uses hotels then by using a discount site like Hotels.com you are not only saving money but being rewarded for your loyalty by a free stay every 10 bookings. Actually once you've made twenty bookings your reward automatically upgrades to an other perks like an executive room. I used my free booking to grab a brilliant nights sleep at the Hilton and waking at 7.30 instead of 5am was so worth it.

The service itself is very easy to use and you can choose to redeem your free stay and then pay for any extras (a room upgrade or breakfast for example) and it's as easy as booking a regular stay.

What do you think of reward schemes like this?

I'm a bit of a sucker for loyalty schemes too - love taking my full Cafe Nero card for a free chai Latte.

Sounds lovely! I love hotels. Wish we could afford to stay over as the 5am starts for the frequent hospital trips to London are a PITA!!

I might join this - as I try and go and stay with Al regularly and we no longer have the flat. It's a great idea.

Laura said...

Ahh such a great idea! My purse is full of loyalty cards for all sorts of things, but it really makes the difference with a hotel!

Sarah @ DaydreamsofSummertime said...

This is an awesome idea! I am all over it! x

sonya said...

Great idea! Like you I have occasion to need a hotel stay several times a year for various reasons, how nice it would be to get a free night every now and then!

Emma Smith said...

That is a great loyalty scheme if you're a regular traveller.

It's a great idea if you are a regular traveller. And come to London more often for last minute lunch dates! ;) x

Love that snuggly jumper and very cute gif :)

I love your outfit - sometimes you need something comfortable and cosy to get you through the day! Wilf looks as adorable as ever, and the GIF is great!

Laura @ Kneadwhine said...

We have used hotels.com a few times but just don't go away enough to fill up that card!

Laura Rocksteady said...

Love this casual style from both of you and how cute is Wilfs jacket - even if it was raining that wonderful yellow would be sunshine to any day

I love hotels.com they always seem to have good rates and I get the email offers too. Note to myself - must sign up to the loyalty scheme :)

I love reward schemes! I think it's a brilliant idea. I get so excited when I feel like my purchases are counting towards something!

Louisa said...

I think reward schemes are brilliant. My hairdresser gives discounts once you've collected 10 points, so I've got an excuse to keep going until I've got a freebie!

Globalmouse said...

I haven't heard of this before but what a brilliant idea...definitely worth looking into.

Beautyqueenuk said...

I had no idea hotels.com did a scheme like this, do now, thanks x
