Welcome.

Welcome to our travel blog. We document our adventures in travel, and bring you info on all the latest hotel and airline deals.

Club Carlson

With Club Carlson, the hotel rewards programme from Carlson Hotels, members can earn free hotel award nights at over 1000 hotel locations around the world. While there are limited opportunities in Asia Pacific (plenty of hotels in China, but none in New Zealand, and only a few in Australia), there are hundreds of hotels across Europe and North America. They also have the only 'Best Price Guarantee' programme that consistently actually beats the prices available on other websites - they will match, and beat by 25%. I have tried my luck with this guarantee twice now - with 100% success, in Shanghai and Amsterdam.

Sign up as a member and spend less time searching and more time saving with their Members Only Rate Exclusive. As a member, you can save up to 10% MORE when you book directly on their website or mobile app. This is their way of encouraging people to book direct rather than through bulk hotel booking sites, where they need to pay commission. Sign up here.

As with most hotel programmes, they're also partnered with numerous car hire firms. For those that are of benefit in Asia Pacific:
