How to (really) do Turkey + packing + doing SA FREE the loyalty way + Hilton promos + Marriott promos

1. How we pack for Turkey:

Click HERE for the Video (don’t forget to hit Subscribe)

2. How we maxed a $15,000 premium Turkey trip for just $315 pp

Click HERE for the video (don’t forget to Subscribe)


Click on the dropdown ‘show more/down arrow’ in the Youtube link above for the full description to each booking

3. Whats really good in South Africa?

We recently took a Zar 25,000 in value SA road trip for FREE using loyalty. Expiring miles = easy trip.

I suppose you can hear complaints about every country especially from media influence to its citizens, South Africa is no different, one will often hear about the Government, how poor service delivery is, prevalent crime, fuel hikes, the exchange rate that just when it starts to show signs of healing gets pummeled often by external factors etc, the list can go on but I’ll tell you what really flippen rocks on the shores of SA ( and I’m not only talking waves..)

  1. Full Service Hotels from 5k per night on points ( its going to be 4k with off peak): Marriott, the largest hotel group in the world and the largest in SA has a huge amount of decent hotels with rates as low as this, few years back when Protea was just taken over basically all were 7500 points per night. These are scattered all over SA and are great to visit city to city during a road trip. Consistently we been scoring 2bedroom suites to Presidential duplex suites. It gets a bit better, the transit hotels are a blessing on the low point rates ( vs high cash rates) for those odd time flights in and out.
  2. Car rental, ever seen how low miles are with unlimited mileage. Recently we used expiring Etihad miles, we got a Compact sedan category for a mere 2500 miles per day all incl with unlimited, promoted via Europcar on the airlines website, this with our top elite status got us upgrades to a automatic 7seater Avanza on trip one and then the most wanted / holy grail of car upgrades – a Bus catergory, Hyundai H1 for the next trip. (We love Bus category upgrades for the size and comfort, have scored it in Morocco Jan18, Turkey March18, Durban June18)
  3. Breakfasts at Nandos, just $2.50, I dont think anywhere else in the world you could get such a tasty start to you day for such a low price, great for those early flights in or out cities and airports.
  4. and yes, waves. SA is absolutely blessed with consistent and perfect surf, I cant vouch that its absolutely uncrowded but when compared to other places in the world, SA surfers are spoilt, amazingly each city on our shores are dotted with some of the best waves with the highlight being Jeffreys Bay, known to have the worlds best right hand pointbreak. I agree.

Follow recent trip posts with pics on Instgram HERE on how we maxing expiring airline miles for car rentals with upgrades to accommodation.

Umrah d-i-why? YouTube + IHG Pointbreaks to Oct 31st+ Hilton + IHG +Marriott promos

1. Why DIY Umrah ? or any other trip.

A question that cannot be answered in just a one liner, but if I had to try, the answer would be: because its way better!

Way better in what way(s) one might ask? Well for starters lets put that down in point form:

  1. Its cheaper, way way cheaper. Gone are the days and mindset that over paying a per person rate for a package is the way to travel. Accommodation has always been booked per room in any event since as far back as my travel memories take me. Personally I have not been on a Umrah package since 1998 and in 2012 prior to traveloyalty.com I went on Umrah backpack style saying in the cheapest (furthest accom for under 50 Riyal per night at the border of 1st Ring Road Madinah and Ajyad in Makkah. Come 2013 with Traveloyalty.com we stayed free on two trips through Hilton Towers in Makkah and Crowne Plaza Madinah, all on points. Heaps closer and heaps better especially for families. This trip would be the kickstart to our future articles and inspiring thousands on staying free even through peak Ramadhaan where most were paying Zar 250,000 and getting zilch back on checkout.
  2. Stay longer through visa validity. You not limited to X-amount days and nights if you not on a package. Visas are valid 30days upon entry to the Kingdom, like most visas they have a fee attached for the full validity period regardless, in this you could maximise the 29 x nights / 30 days validity.
  3. Investment for akhira… and dunya. When you book direct your trip now becomes one that you can earn back points for future free hotel nights. 3rd party bookings are null and void of any earn back and perks.
  4. Perks through Traveloyalty.com in #theTLway, this saves you even more and this alone needs its own chapter, most of which are mentioned in the YouTube video next in the description but just to highlight, food savings by way of lounge access, early check ins and late check outs ( thats like 2 free nights), 2nd adult stays free, upgrades, free breakfast for room, even open complimentary menu’s, all of this has been mentioned many times since 2013, however daily new travelers are discovering the power of loyalty and best of all…
  5. Bonus points. Most never knew that they could earn bulk if not more of their spend back in this alone.
  6. Its easy, super easy. It takes about 20 seconds to make a booking on the hotels app.
  7. Family travel perfected. Thank heavens the locals have large families and in this the hotels are super lenient to those who worry about having to lay out extra person charges and extra rooms in packages.
  8. Flights. Here one can book any way, regardless, be it miles, cash on 3rd party or a find on skyscanner or Ita Matrix. Flights are the easiest part.
  9. Transfers. There are all too many taxis from H1’s to GMC’s to sedans to vans outside airports and hotels that you can negotiate a price with per family not per person.
  10. Yearn for a repeat trip? You will be super pleased you saved mega bucks on last trip incase of the Visa penalty.
  11. DIY travel has worked for hundreds of people you know, theres no reason why it will not work for you!

2. Umrah Diy 29x nights. YouTube. Paid R9500 in Business and R5500 in Economy.

How we have maximised the blessings of miles and points since traveloyalty.com’s inception over the years, well not so much on the miles sector as yet as we have taken most of the cash specials in Business class or the discounted ways in economy by adding another city or country into the itinerary making it a “open jaw”, such as Morocco and Oman, at the same time earning close to 300,000 miles towards future trips. Click the video below (and hit the subscribe button)

Turkey, up next. How we done it in the way better – way less way with Vip terminals for internal flights to benchmark upgrades.

3. Hilton – Power up your points.

Note:
IHG will be switching to dynamic award pricing by the end of 2019, so don’t hold on to your points as they may have minimal value in peak times when cash rates are high. How will this affect Pointbreaks is yet to be seen…

2. Discounting flights from Google.

Upcoming between August 13th and September 2nd (and this should be a industry changer), Google flights will have a test on Airfare Price Guarantee.

This ensures you have paid the lowest price whereby they will notify you and pay you back up to $500 if your flights airfare drops after you purchase it.

Note: if this is loaded as per itinerary, it may make sense to split each pax bookings.

Currently the roll out is for select domestic and international flights and will have a badge showing if the flight is enabled titled: “Price Guarantee”

Previously the best was Flight Centers price beat policy which has been edited numerous times over the past few years, at current its R50 off per person off the matched price but it has to be from certain websites only.

I’ve posted on social media many a times getting paid back on this, check HERE.

3. Maxing Hilton for 601k.

IHG Pointbreaks to May 31st, 2019+ Hilton Apac promo + Hyatt promo + Marriott SA promo

Tip for scoring in travels:

A common tip I use when travelling is using points for free stays (this way there’s no taxes) on the first night or the last night or both at certain destinations especially airport hotels or hotels that offer a free airport shuttle. Airport hotels are often way cheaper using points even if you had to buy them.

If you into scoring premium hotels or the best hotels in your destination you would know it makes zero sense to check in for your full stay if you arriving at night (and subsequently missing the whole day for premium cash rates or even premium points rates that you would or could have otherwise scored with a early check in), the same goes with early morning flights = early morning check outs, similar procedure, check out your premium hotel late and on to your ‘budget hotel’ check in near airport for next days flight.

Some of my favourite savings I’ve had on low points are Hilton Bali Nagurah Rai for 5000 points, Four Points Sheraton Kenya Airport for 17000 points, heaps of Proteas at 7500 points especially for transits, heaps of all brands throughout USA, Crowne Plaza Changi Singapore for 40k points (heavy I know but the cash rates were even more crazy) and Holiday Inn Mauritius scored for 5000 points on pointbreaks previously, usually only 15000 points per night pictured below.

If you followed my road trip through Florida on Instagram last year, you could fly into Orlando and do Disney and all the rest, Nasa Space Centre, Lego Land, Fort Lauderdale and fly out of Miami and make use of the airport hotel on Pointbreaks for 5000 points.

1. Hilton Asia Pacific Sale. Up to 35% off.

Promos + Business Airfares + taking up the biggest score

1. Marriott Bonvoy Promo.

Marriott’s first promo is set to launch which might include a Megabonus for some.

  • Earn double elite night credit for every 2 nights.
  • Now get even more. Earn:
    • 10,000 bonus points when you stay at 10 brands.
    • 29,000 bonus points when you stay at 29 brands.

Access the offer HERE. / or log into promotion central soon as the promo goes live.

Many have asked me whats the best they can do with the heaps of Marriott points earned from my advice prior to their merger. 

Answer:

almaha.jpg

Rates: 6700 aed per night ++. Al Maha is a ultra luxury Oasis in the desert of the UAE. Using points its only 60,000 per night + 5th night free making it 240k for 5 nights.

AL maha2.jpg

It gets even better: Marriott Rewards have included All Inclusive even on points rate, as well as activities. There was a time when it was $1000 per person.

Previously Rates were:

168AED per person for breakfast

273AED per person for lunch

515AED per person for dinner

270AED per person per activity

AL Maha ( and other premium properties) goes up to Catergory 8 next month needing almost double the amount of points. The best part is book it now prior to the increase on credit and have the points 7 days before check in.

Bottom Line:

This is definitely the biggest score for a free stay to the tune of R130,000 + that was super easily obtainable.

2.  Business Class for R6500.

Kenyan Airways has a really good deal from Johannesburg to Mauritius ( there are other destinations thats higher priced ) for R6500 in Business Class. All other Ota’s are showing economy for a similar fare + Skyscanner and Matrix wont pick this up as per tips below.

KQ2xBC.jpg

Tips:

Use a pc to get on Kenyan Airways website.

Search 2 Adults or 2 Adults+2 Kids at most.

Check the flights on the different days, most will have the new Dreamliner’s B787 Out Jnb with excellent Lie flat.

Update: Out of Cape Town its R6220 however its on the old 737 planes..

3.  Radisson Rewards Travel Further. 120k bonus points.

Ends 31st March, 2019

Access the offer HERE.

4. Hyatt buy points +30% bonus.

Earn Even More Points. Purchase 5,000 points or more and earn 30% more bonus Points. Terms Apply. Offer ends Feb 22, 2019.

Marriott Bonvoy + Hilton promos + IHG promos + Royal Suite Conrad Makkah.

1.  Marriott BONVoY launching.

The new name for the Marriott Rewards program launching on Feb’13th. I’ve advised many a time via social media / newsletters that personally I’ve put 80% of my 2017/2018 stays into the Marriott Rewards/SPG/Ritz Carlton Brands. The results are stellar especially now that Marriott has decided to keep the standard award points until March ( and not Dec 31st 2018 as initially forecasted).

See my recent stays and scores through St. Regis Miami, St. Regis Bangkok, Luxury Collection Bodrum, Sheraton Maldives and more on Instagram.

If you thought 2014 was great and were blown away by the merger in 2017 wait till you taste what lies ahead in 2019-2020..

What does this mean?

Readers can now still use their Platinum Elite Status and Reward points to book all the cream of the crop brands and properties for a mere 48,000 points per night ( incl 5th night free). Some properties needed 270,000 points per night prior! Time to save hundred thousands of bucks in 2019 has just got a lifeline. Take advantage asap.

Also,

One can book bulk of stays ahead without the full points or any points in account as Marriott is the only hotel brand that one can book on credit up to a week of check in using points.

Even better:

These premium all suite properties including the all inclusive ones can be had on the highly discounted points rate.

Still better:

As Marriott (formerly a SPG perk) is the only program that gives a 25% bonus on transfers of points to airline miles, all those premium 1st and business class upgrades you’ve seen on my posts and Instagram are still easier than ever.

Yes it was 270,000 points per night, now we getting it at 48,000 per night.

Access Bonvoy’s update  HERE.

 

2.  Hilton Promos:

2.1  Points Unlimited January 4th – May 5th 2019

The Points Unlimited promotion is back!  Get 2,000 Bonus Points per stay, plus 10,000 Bonus Points every 5 stays or 10 nights (whichever comes first) from January 4 – May 5. Register asap.

points unlimited

2.2  Honors Buy points 100% bonus.

Ends February 26, 2019. 

Picture you here. Buy 10,000+ Points by Feb 26 and get 100% more to get there sooner.

Access our dedicated Hilton page HERE

 

3.  IHG promo’s

3.1 Treat yourself to a break with 30% off.

 

 

3.2  Rewards Nights Faster.

4. The Royal Suite of Conrad Makkah

Comes with its own massage chair. A first.

If you have been following my updates on travels on Instagram you would have seen we have currently done reviews of premium suites that are off the chart. Below is Conrad Makkah.

The size of this pad vs the other neighbouring rooms.

Located at the top of the hotel, at 247 sq. m. This amazing suite features two bedrooms with king and 2 queen-sized beds, as well as a separate lounge and a dining area with kitchen + the family essential = 2 full bathrooms, non of their other suites or rooms have this.

The front door at the end of the passage.

The front door once inside.

 

 

 

As usual in most suites one finds a guest bathroom upon entry.

 

Bedroom 1

The King Bedroom

Bedroom 2

Has 2 Queen beds.

Plenty of seating options.

8 seater dining room.

I think everyone who has visited Conrad Makkah has made good use of the two red leather (actually one now) chairs downstairs in the executive lounge.

Full kitchen.

With just about every tried and tested room and suite inventory in most of the premium hotels in the city, Traveloyalty can advise on every need for most travellers especially families.

IHG Pointbreaks + Book Ramadhaan 2019 free on points+ Trip through Miami’s finest hotels FREE + the most hyped hotel yet.

1. Umrah Ramadhaan on points – Book now.

Points have been open for 2 weeks so for those planning Ramadhaan grab the availability now.

Via my Instagram posts which included screenshots and dates of flying in for R5800 with Turkey in the mix is the best at the moment. Check it out.

Last 10 Nights Ramadhaan bookings are open.

Using points will save you almost Zar 170k thats about the same as our posts have shown each year since 2012. Remember these are room rates that can accommodate most families.
The night by night rate shows a blackout in last 5 nights as usual, however using points from a few days before bypasses this to get the booking confirmation.
Plan to stay in the Kingdom after Eid? The points rates drop more than 50-70% and the cash rates go down 10x less!
Flying in:
Use my previous post to Turkey via Jeddah, Skyscanner app has Multi City now so its easier to check dates, it might even be cheaper doing Turkey later with the Inbound. There could even be more savings, some OTA’s are offering discount codes today. For Business class, cash economy flex tickets + under 40k miles per way with get the upgrade on Middle East airliners.
Using Star Alliance miles via Cai or Add is another saving option.
Also:
Other hotel brands have similar blessings in using points, Sheraton and Marriott ( this one used to be 20k pn on points previous years) are 35k pn (140k with 5th night free). Per night thats still only 12k Starpoints! ( former SPG point currency). #ultimate

 

 

2. Doing Miami’s finest suites in finest hotels free on points.

St. Regis – Ritz Carlton – W South Beach.

 

Access the trip HERE.

In 2017 trips, St. Regis Kuala Lampur grabbed my Suite of the year award. This current year 2019 (thus far) its again St. Regis, located in Miami Bal Harbour.

TraveLoyalty’s 2017 Best of the Best:

Best trip: Umrah
Longest trip: Umrah
Best hotel suite: Caroline Astor St.Regis, KL
Best breakfast: Ritz Carlton lounge, Bali
Best Sushi: Grand Hyatt, Hong Kong

Biggest suite: Presidential in Conrad, Bali
Best service: Hyatt Regency & Conrad Makkah
Unique perk: Infinity laundry, Conrad Bali
Best beach: Labriz, Seychelles (again)
Best overall lounge: Ritz Carlton, Bali
Best flight: First class Etihad Auh-Jfk

Most motivational: Silicon Valley, San Francisco
Best shopping: Outlets in Mco, Jhb, Honolulu
Best waves: Holiday Inn Resort, Maldives
Best near death experience: Oahu, Hawaii

2018 Best of the Best coming on Instagram in a bit over a month.

3. Disney’s Star Wars hotel. The HYPE has begun.

I took this pic below during March 2018 trip ( prior to Miami ) at the Hollywood Studios of Disney World in Orlando Florida, I just knew something astronomically big was about to unfold.

 

When I read about this in the media last year I emailed The Disney Concierge that organised our park tickets and found out that its only coming up in 2019. Sure enough here we are at the end of 2018 and I don’t think I have ever seen such HYPE for a hotel, the last I saw this much excitement would have been Atlantis the Palm, Dubai opening about a decade ago.

This HYPE is so big that USA based travel bloggers have gone to extraordinary lengths to publish plans, engineer permits and project drawings that they obtained from the Florida Municipalities and Departments of Environmental Protection.. I have truly never seen this happen before. 

Its a fairly small hotel with 600 rooms and rates will prob cost as one commentator put it ‘cost a kidney’ however the blessings of miles and points should be able to offset this.

I can vouch the very best theme ride ever experienced was the Disney World Hong Kong’s Hyper Space Mountain one during July/August 2018. I’m sure they will have similar if not better ones at the Disney Galaxy Edge in Orlando.

Check into a Star Wars themed hotel that will take the shape of a different planet far far away complete with droids, light sabers and intergalactic rides.

Disney Hollywood Studios 2019 in your plans yet?

Hilton sale – book now + Hyatt points sale plus my take on changes.

 

1. The Hilton Sale.

Book by January 31st, 2019. Stays to be completed on weekends between November 2nd 2018 and May 29th, 2019

 

Access our Hilton page HERE

 

2. Hyatt buy points. My take and update.

Up to 40% bonus. Ends November 27th, 2018.

This might only make sense for redemption at premium Hyatt properties on points rates alone as Hyatt has devalued their points + cash rates drastically on 1 Nov.

What was the worlds premium and best hotel chain for elites to burn points has suddenly hit a complete 180, however one thing unique is that one can use double the points per night for a confirmed premium suite booking, the type of suite is yet to be clarified from hotel to hotel…

I’ve recently had the opportunity of sitting down with Hyatt’s Vice President of Development and cited these concerns on the back track where other brands are pushing perks forward, he cited what many – a – Hyatt hotel manager has mentioned to me in this year “WOH is all about exclusivity and rewarding its top members”.  I still maintain if Hyatt continued to successfully bid for SPG and kept their previous loyalty program: Gold Passport they would be untouchable.

Remember those not so far aback days we could use a mere 6000 points and confirm a premium suite on booking per 4 nights. Try that now on the new points+cash rate…

Get more rewards sooner. Purchase 10,000 points or more and earn 40% more Bonus Points through November 27. Terms apply.

8. Hong Kong airfares are set to change.

In November Hong Kong ( HKG) will allow airlines to load YQ / YR taxes. What this means: goodbye to all the lucks of flying premium reward Business class for R1300 return with SAA into and also an increase on departing  First and Business class out of HKG.

One of my favourite 1st class reward flights that will be changing:

I believe this is the longest one can fly for the least amount of money in 1st class.

That’s over 25 hours over 2 flights worth of 1st class for R1060 ( Normal cash price R189,000) + have access to Emirates 1st class lounge in Dubai, see my trip review HERE.

The last part of the lounge with direct boarding gates in the background.

If you planning to max your awards asap before the increase, use my tips posted in my Youtube account HERE.

 

9. Avios is changing… Taxes increasing.

10. How to find hidden cameras in your room.

For those who frequent Airbnb and self catering places alike there has been plenty spike in reports of hidden cameras found especially after the movie ’13 Cameras’ was released.

I came across this excellent article some days back with plenty of tips for those who are still in the unawares. Do share it.

Personally I’ve been through Airbnb on 3 separate 1 night stays.

The first time was in the snow some years back. The home owner seemed to walk up and down the steps during the night to my upstairs room and tried to open my locked room door on one occasion. It was super creepy.

The second was in Seychelles, needed a place close to harbor jetty, it was expensive, basic, not clean, bathroom had the type of shower you would want to use flip flops in. Charged me half room rate for an extra bed. Left early next day.

Third was in Hawaii, went to look at a place, it was multiple rental rooms with shared kitchen, walked in and walked out. Scored a better deal through Rocketmiles at the North Shore of Oahu’s only hotel.

2) IHG Rewards Club Pointbreaks  Sep 24th – Nov 30th, 2018

Rooms from only 5000 or 10,000 or 15000 points per night.

Book HERE. 

IHG (Intercontinental Hotels Group), the worlds largest hotel and loyalty programme has released a full hotel list for booking.

If you are un-familiar on how to stay for free at top end Intercontinental and Crowne Plaza Hotels kindly read on:

What is Pointbreaks ?

Pointbreaks is the hotel industry’s most economical ( un-matched and un-rivalled) promotion as +200 hotels ( out of 4900 +) are available for the redemption of a mere 5000 points ( it has now been changed to allocate better hotels at 10,000 and 15,000 points per night) regardless of what the normal points reward rate is per night.

How do you earn IHG points ?

You can earn points from stays at hotels or taking up their super lucrative challenges every quarter, personally I earn massive points in their on-going quarterly Accelerate promo blended with 100% bonuses as a Spire Elite

see my Instagram @traveloyalty .

If you don’t have points, Traveloyalty can show you how to manufacture points using this method HERE at a rate of $35 per 5000. ( That’s half the rate the website sells them at ). It can now be done at $30 per 5000 and on a good points+cash sale at $22.50 per 5000 points

You can also buy points on sale offers during the year and earn up to 100% bonus on purchases. One just ended on the 22nd Sep.

Off course personally, I would rather spend the money on a stay and collect all the points + bonuses for free.

Remember when you book on points you SAVE ON TAXES.

2.  Marriott’s new combined chart !

St. Regis Maldives anyone?

The chart will be taking effect in a few days with the merger to SPG. All premium and most sought after properties will be Category 7 = 60k points for a free night and will only move up to the new category 8 only in Jan 2019.

(lets hope they allow bookings prior to New Years Day way into 2019 at these old rates)

SPG’s last points sale ever ends tomorrow, these transfer 1 SPG point = 3 Marriott points. ( Elites get 5th night free ontop)

 

Think Luxury Collection Al Maha in UAE and St. Regis Vommuli Maldives… (google image these 2 if they not familiar to you)

Exciting times ahead. Lets #travelbrilliantly
