You can earn cashback for most travel bookings you make. Here’s an update to the piece that I wrote more than a year ago about the online shopping cashback malls that you can use to get some cash to your PayPal account or more miles/points.

Different type of cashback malls

1. Straight cashback malls

These are my personal choice as you normally get the cashback deposited directly to your PayPal account. It is easy to compare the cashback options because the payout is represented in percentage of the price. You just choose the cashback mall that is offering the highest payout at the time you do the booking/purchase.

My favorites on this category are Ebates, MrRebates, TopCashback (US for Worldwide Use) or UK (for UK residents), Quidco (only for UK residents & Upromise. There are number of others as well. [click to continue…]

Getting cashback for Hilton bookings hasn’t been too easy, as it seems that they are not available in most of the usual cashback websites. I wrote a piece last month, when TopCashback UK started offering 5% cashback for Hilton stays in form of Tesco Clubcard points (that you can later convert to BA Avios) that you can access here.

Now, UK based websites Quidco is offering 13% cashback for those that book the Hilton’s Great Getaway (you can read more about this sale here) rate plans for stays in EMEA by the end of this week for stays up until the end of the year. Note that you need to have a UK bank account, if the payment is more than 25 GBP. Payments less than that can be paid to your PayPal account. [click to continue…]

Note that due to special requirements from Hilton part, you cannot withdraw these to any other than Tesco’s Club Card points that you can later exchange to British Airways Avios or Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles and other travel related vouchers. I will cover this aspect on a later post. [click to continue…]
