20% Off Hotels.com Bookings for 24 Hours! (or 21 Avios per £1)

I don’t really like posting two cashback deals on the same day, but TopCashback has just launched a very good Hotels.com offer that is only available for 24 hours. Until tomorrow morning (4th October), you can get a 20% rebate on all your bookings with Hotels.com.

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to stack the 20% cashback with Hotels.com’s own Rewards Nights loyalty programme, so to make sure you get the higher cashback rate, DON’T sign into your hotels.com account!

Good deal?

If you want to collect Rewards Nights, the cashback rate is just 6-8%. Given that Rewards Nights provides an effective rebate of ~9%, you would be getting 15-17% back in total, as opposed to 20% if you just stick to the cashback.

I would also argue that the option to convert cashback to Avios with a 5% bonus (or to cash out for various giftcards etc with a 10% bonus) also makes it more attractive.

It’s also worth a quick mention that TopCashback is also currently offering up to 15% back on stays at Accor Hotel brands like Sofitel, Novotel, Mercure and Ibis.

Not a TopCashback member yet? – get an extra £10 on top!

If you’re new to TopCashback, sign up through this link and you will receive an additional £10 bonus when you spend £10+ with any retailer.

Bottom line

20% back on any hotel booking simply for clicking through from a cashback site is an excellent offer. More advanced ‘travel hackers’ like to get substantially more back from their stays in Hotel Points etc, but if you’re looking for something simple, quick and that offers a vast range of hotel options, this offer is tough to beat.

      Not quite, but definitely good thinking. Quidco highest cashback rate guarantee states, “Quidco’s ‘double the difference’ Highest Cashback Guarantee will be applied to all retailers aside from those in the following categories: travel, utilities, finance, insurance, telecoms, subscription services, gambling, bingo, casino, poker and sportsbook.
      In the aforementioned categories a maximum 10% top up will be applied to retailer rates. In these cases we will beat the advertised cashback rate on a rival UK cashback site by 10% (for example, 10% will be increased to 11%)” – so 20% would be 22%. Whether the extra 2% is worth the hassle and potential risk (in case it didn’t get honoured for some obscure reason) depends I suppose.

    You can still be advanced with hotels.con

    Book via quidco, use their price guarantee, which takes cashback to 30% for the original purchase amount, and then scout for cheaper hotel prices. I tend to find amoma often the most competitive. Submit a request to hotels.com for their price guarantee so they’ll refund you the difference.

    …and voila! You can get quite a saving. Original price of booking was 454. With all these methods, I’ve reduced that down to 255 which I think it’s pretty good going.

      Have you used the hotels.com best rate guarantee much before? I don’t think I’ve ever tried it, but could definitely be potentially useful when hotels.com has high cashback (assuming an amended rate still gets honoured by TCB/Quidco)

      • Andrew says

        Hey Joe, yes I have. Quite frequently actually and rarely any problems. Previous experience with the cashback is that they adhere to the original price. As the system is automated the original figure is seen as complete. The guarantee is refunded as a separate transaction by hotels.com

        • Joe Deeney says

          Cheers! – sounds good. If there was a big difference in price between sites (and there often is) you could end up doing extremely well.

            update – they were a bit more difficult this time (perhaps they saw this board!). It’s worth pointing out that they won’t guarantee against loyalty club prices and I’ve just been informed that non refundable bookings are reimbursed with a voucher. You have to make sure it is an exact comparison as well i.e. breakfast/no breakfast, refundable/non refundable etc. Admittedly they gave me a bigger sum than the difference because of the way that they had dealt with my claim.
