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.

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.

4. Hilton promos

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)

Click on the dropdown ‘show more/down arrow’ in the Youtube link above for the full description to each booking we have previously posted and taken advantage of.

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

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.

Worlds most exclusive resort soon opens up to loyalty. Save 6500 Eur per night!

Marriott introduces its new rewards pricing tomorrow. Premium top of range properties go up from 60,000 points to 100,000 points per night in peak. As mentioned previously, one can forward book on ‘credit’ needing the full points a week before check in but do take note some properties have been holding fees for award bookings in the future.

Previously on traveloyalty.com we reviewed The most outrageous, phenomenal and biggest hotel suite in the world at one of the worlds most famous hotels which bring us on to our main topic:

The worlds most sought after – royalty worthy – outrageously exclusive resort.

——————————————————————————————————————–

Hello North Island, Seychelles.

Note: (not to be confused with North Sentinel Island in the Indian ocean..)

——————————————————————————————————————–

Breaking news is that its joining Marriott’s Luxury Collection brand portfolio soon. I presume this has been kept until after the category 8 sets in as the standard cash rates at this exclusive island goes for a whopping Euro 6500 – 10,000 per night ( about Zar 105,000 to 160,000 per night!)

This is the Island you may recall that Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton spent their honeymoon at, so did George + Amal Clooney and other holiday makers included Brad Pitt + Angelina Jolie.

Return to the Blue Lagoon memoirs?

I’ve visited Seychelles 3rd largest island affectionately known as Silhouette island that houses Hilton Labriz a few times, it lies just across North Island and to this day remains the most stunning and intriguing islands I’ve been to of all worldwide. No ways? Hear me out: I know I post plenttyyy of Maldives trips on social media especially surfing and many times including foodie.
However unlike Maldives, Silhouette island has a mountain one can hike over for 3 hours +, you could even get lost and will need a search party to find you hence needing permission to wander into the jungle prior. There are Arabian Pirate graveyards on the other end, legend has it there’s heaps of buried / hidden pirate treasure on this island worth billions of dollars, once myself and family adventured into the wilderness and we found some guests with metal detectors scouting the sand on other sides.

Silhouette Island at most parts has that.. how can I say, Johnny Castaway / Robinson Crusoe type feeling, lost in another world, like you the only humans around and this lasts for hours and hours when you explore, this is really hard to find at other places that holds a world class branded hotel group that one can stay for free at by redeeming points (with vip perks).

Personally after spending heaps of time ( scoring free stopover trips) in the Seychelles I’d say Silhouette Island is way better than the more famous and in demand (+whew crowded) La Digue Island as well as Praslin Island, dont get me wrong I agree that these 2 islands have many of the worlds top 10 beaches but the mere over crowd factor doesn’t tick off all the boxes, kind of the same way crowded Antalya vs exclusive Bodrum in Turkey does.

I would assume North Island although much smaller in size( 10x to be exact) to have a similar feel if not better, there are double the amount of staff as guests on this island that has only 10 Presidential villas and 1 exclusive Villa North Island in the category above (yep this is the 10k one in Euro)

Its all inclusive resort:including mini bar and room snacks that has jars and jars of goodies so lets hope they include it in the award pricing and not ping pong about Al Maha style. Speaking of awards, I’m sure there wont be much availability once it loads given the small amount of accommodation.

Getting there: its a very short helicopter flight from Mahe, I have seen boats service the island as well that should take 55 mins from the jetty in Mahe.

Activities: Everything you could expect on a island from hill top picnics to fishing, this ocean stretch has been my favourite to fish in, I’ve caught heaps of Tuna, Job fish, Snapper and many others. Don’t miss doing this.

Seychelles fishing is world class, the first tip is reel in fast or risk half if not more of your catch being bitten off by something bigger !

Between a rock and a hard place: is where most Marriott Bonvoy Elites will be tonight, book at the premium resorts such as St. Regis Vommuli Maldives or St. Regis New York or Luxury Collection Al Maha UAE?? or keep the points in anticipation for scoring North Island with 5th night free for 400,000 Bonvoy points, thats if they don’t decide to pull a “Waldorf Astoria Maldives” redemption on us…

No one around not even a foot print should be your forte in your 2019 travels.
