    Just had this in my inbox from Holidaycheck.

    Not very happy. Points avenue closed.

    It's a shame :(

    It seems that your account does work on their German site, which incidentally seems to have a lot more views for UK hotels I often visit than their English site ever did, possibly why they're giving up on the English language market.

    Anyone know if you can get points on their German language site? With some basic german knowledge, and Google translate, it might be possible to keep doing simple reviews (mostly the stars with just a very short bit of text) in German

    Hopefully. I suspect that copying and pasting your review into a translation tool and pasting it into Holidaycheck is going to be picked up.

    Yeah I was a touch disappointed by this. The German/Google translate option could work, and you've also got the option of the second most spoken language in the UK, Polish.

    In terms of the .de site, you can earn miles for reviews, as follows:

    - 100 M&M
    - 200 airberlin topbonus
    - 100 Boomerang Club miles (Eurowings)
    - 150 PINS (airbaltic)
    - 100 Webmiles (no idea, but: https://www.webmiles.at/)

    The .pl site offers M&M, topbonus and PINS.

    Damn, no Etihad Guest miles, which is what I've been earning.

    Holidaycheck tell me:

    "We have decided to focus our efforts on our core markets Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Poland and stop for now activities on other markets."
