Why you should use Rocketmiles at least once

Why you should use Rocketmiles at least once

While most major hotel chains give you the opportunity to earn airline miles for your nights, these rewards are rarely very generous. And if you're like me, who first of all doesn't travel a lot for work, and secondly isn't very loyal to any hotel chain, you tend to value miles or airline points more … Continue reading Why you should use Rocketmiles at least once

Hotel review: Kimpton Mason & Rook, Washington DC, USA

Hotel review: Kimpton Mason & Rook, Washington DC, USA

While researching hotels for my trip to Washington DC, I came across the Kimpton brand's "Third night free" promo, which made their stylish design hotel Kimpton & Rook seem like a very good deal at around $150 a night including taxes. The hotel is located in a fairly quiet residential zone just next to the … Continue reading Hotel review: Kimpton Mason & Rook, Washington DC, USA

Review: SAS Go (Economy) – Copenhagen – Washington DC (Airbus A330)

Every once in a while, Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) runs a promo for their staff and their friends, with some very decent prices in both their Go (economy) and Plus (premium economy) cabins.

The trip in Go … Continue reading Review: SAS Go (Economy) – Copenhagen – Washington DC (Airbus A330)

I enjoyed my first economy flight with Finnair (Oslo-Helsinki-Bangkok), and was excited when I saw an email from the airline drop in my inbox that started something like this: «To thank you for choosing Finnair for your journey, we’d like to offer you an exclusive travel class upgrade for your reservation XXXXXX».  I kept reading, … Continue reading «Exclusive offer»: Thanks, Finnair, but no thanks

Review: Finnair Economy Class, Helsinki – Bangkok (Airbus A350-900)

Review: Finnair Economy Class, Helsinki – Bangkok (Airbus A350-900)

For this year's Thailand trip, Finnair once again offered the best combination of travel time and ticket cost. The direct options from Oslo were overall more expensive than having a short stopover in Helsinki, and I really liked the idea of travelling in the Airbus A350 again, even though it had to happen in Economy … Continue reading Review: Finnair Economy Class, Helsinki – Bangkok (Airbus A350-900)
