Avios launches major sale
Families can significantly cut the costs of their holiday with the Avios sale, offering up to 40% off hotels, flights, package holidays and cruises.
Avios holders can also collect bonus points this month as part of the Avios sale.
Discounts apply to over 100 hotels across Europe, US and UAE, when travelling between March and May 2016.
As an example, a hotel costing 60,000 points plus £50 is now 36,000 points plus £30, representing a 40% saving.
Families booking package holidays can get four times the value of Avios at Thomas Cook, Thomson and Kuoni. Holidays have to be booked before 24 January via Avios online.
Bonus points can be collected at Abercrombie & Kent, Rocketmiles, Hotels.com, Avis and on tour operators and cruise packages.
Avios can be great way to save for your family holiday, as you can collect points on everyday spending, which can soon add up and can significantly slash the costs of a family getaway.

Reduce your grocery bill by 70% this summer!
The kids are off school and they are going to be hungry – inevitably, the next few weeks will see the cost of your weekly shop shoot up.
To help families keep the costs of food shopping down, MMM put Approved Food to the test, which can help slash the cost of shopping by as much as 70%.
There is of course one catch – the food is past or close to its sell-by date, but perfectly safe.
With a £30 budget, MMM managed to bag a fair amount – cereals, tinned food, sweets and treats, drinks and even laundry detergent and dishwasher tablets – the sort of things where you can generally ignore the date stamped on the product.
If you’ve tried reducing the cost of the grub by switching brands or shopping at discount stores but think you can do better, then try Approved Food – you’ll be surprised at just how much you could save on some store cupboard essentials.
New products are available everyday and there are some real bargains. For example, Sprite Zero 330ml for just 29p or a 2kg Reeses Peanut jar for just £2.99. There’s even stuff for pets, at more than 50% off.
MMM was really pleased with service and surprised at just how at just how much £30 would buy (see pic above/ instagram).
Although we would like to see Approved Food cut down on the cardboard packaging, the items arrived well packed and in excellent condition.
So, if you’re looking to save a few more pounds on your groceries, take a look at Approved food – you’ll be surprised at just how good the bargains are.
