Car rental provider Sixt and airberlin have teamed up (once again) to offer 1,000 free topbonus miles to anyone who registers with Sixt in June 2015, via this link.
Having successfully received these 1000 free topbonus miles in the past myself, it’s well worth spending the 10 seconds it takes to secure them.
As a related aside, airberlin is very soon set to release the latest round of topbonus “Topdeals” – where redemption flights with airberlin become available for as little as 2000 topbonus miles. We will post separately on this.
While Etihad often comes close, Qatar Airways continues to lead the field in excellent value for long-haul Business Class flights, with long haul Business Class as low as .
The latest round of ex-Europe deals offer best value from Scandinavia, but there is a number of good value options available on departures from the UK, including London to Bangkok at £1830 return, Cape Town at £1910 return and Hong Kong at £1925 return.
The other stand out deals available from the UK and Europe are as follows: (more…)

Hilton hotels have a number of regional sales on at present, collectively covering much of the globe. With reductions widely applied at 30% to many of these properties, and in some cases going as high as 35%, it’s worth having a look. You will also get double points on stays!
First up is the Europe, Middle East and Africa sale, which offers discounts on rooms of up to 35%. You need to book before 23 August, and stay before 27 September 2015. While it is technically a “weekend” sale, discounts are largely applying throughout the week. (more…)

Lufthansa has just released its list of June Mileage Bargains, allowing you to redeem your Lufthansa Miles & More miles for Lufthansa redemption flights in Economy Class and Business Class at half the mileage cost (or almost half, or sometimes better than half).
This post has a full analysis and guide to booking Mileage Bargains. In short, it’s a great opportunity to get good value long-haul Business Class flights with Lufthansa.
Given the enormous range of departure points and destinations, it’s quite hard to give comprehensive examples of available bargains, but some stand-out offers currently available from the UK and USA (and bear in mind you can easily select from various global departure points) include:
Owing to a potent mix of technical issues and holiday, euflyer.com spent much of this and last week offline. As such, we have not yet flagged the 100% bonus on purchasing Hilton HHonors points, that many other sites have already reported on.
So, you almost certainly already know about this deal, which lets you buy Hilton HHonors points for just 5 US dollar cents each. The offer ends on 17 June, 2015.
However, what is worth remembering – and separately flagging – is that there is also a select number of Hilton (Category 1) properties where you can stay for just 5,000 points per night. As such, in buying points at this 100% bonus rate, you are paying US$25 per night for your stay at these hotels. (more…)

Today (3 June 2015) is your last chance to book flights in the Etihad UK Early Summer sale.
While a lot of noise has been made about Qatar Airways’ hugely discounted Business Class fares, particularly from mainland Europe, this is a great opportunity to buy some very good value Business Class flights – with the option of leaving from London, Edinburgh or Manchester.
The flight window is fairly tight at 1 July to 14 July, but if you are after a great value July break, this is worth a look.
