I’ve written quite a bit about Club1 Hotels savings, they report $50 to $100 off per night on average. I’ve found the best deals at nicer properties. And they’ve been improving their website. They’re giving away a $50.00 Restaurant.com certificate with all reservations, and for every $1,500 spent they’re giving out a Priority Pass membership (both of these things can be gifted).
Many readers signed up for a year free. They’ve gone to a paid membership of $59 a month, but you can sign up for $29 a month and there’s no commitment to continue. So book when you want and cancel.
I’ve shown some of the better hotel deals offered but what’s been underreported is that they have airfare deals, too. This doesn’t get as much attention because you can’t search their airfare deals online, you have to request a quote. I’m told that their air partners don’t want to publicly reveel (and undercut their own online) pricing.
I requested some quotes as a test, and they come back really well for someone that would buy premium cabin tickets.
This Air France business class itinerary for the holidays retails for $8147. Club1 Hotels priced it at $5894
This British Airways first class itinerary retails for $10,125. Club1 Hotels priced it at $8024.
Not all itineraries will have thousands of dollars in savings. For instance, this American Airlines business class itinerary Los Angeles – Tokyo retails for $3397. Club1 Hotels quoted $2835.
Here’s the smallest savings of the itineraries queried — United Chicago – London. This itinerary retails for $3624. Club1 Hotels quoted $3484 ‘only’ a savings of $140.
So if you signed up for a free one year trial, and you’re considering a business class or first class paid ticket, it’s worth checking out the site. And go back to check pricing for hotels, too, since there’s sometimes enough savings to be really worthwhile (it’s a site worth keeping in the arsenal). Some will benefit from their new discounted paid memberships as well.
