Kaligo is one of the most aggressive hotel aggregators out there that offer bonus points for hotel bookings – they partner with a large number of frequent flyer and bank rewards programs, with chunky bonuses on offer that are changing relatively frequently.

Kaligo is more focused at the Asia-Pacific and European markets – when it comes to customers, rather than their range of hotels. They now have over 400,000 hotels available, all of which you should be able to earn points from.

We’re going to try and round up all of the different deals they are running each month into one consolidated place – this guide.

Their pricing is variable, and like most hotel bookings, you’ll want to double check prices against other booking options to ensure you are getting a good deal, even if it does come with a points bonus.

There may be some other offers floating around that we have excluded because they aren’t generally applicable to Australia, such as for holders of overseas credit cards.

Earning points / miles for stays from Kaligo

Outside of specific bonus points promotions, you’ll also earn miles for each stay you book in future. There’s no set earn rate, and this varies with how much you spend and the hotel you book, with presumably Kaligo kicking you back more miles for hotels they receive higher commissions for.

Kaligo requires pre-payment for all bookings, but shows the cancellation policies and associated fees clearly in the checkout process.

Generally Kaligo’s pricing should compete well with other consolidators, especially once you take into account the value of the bonus points or miles on offer – but you may still find better outright deals by booking direct, so make sure you always do a comparison to check.

Summing up – keep Kaligo as an option in mind for hotel bookings

Kaligo has a compelling offer if the hotel you want pops up at a cost that is competitive – but you should check against booking direct to be sure you’re not losing out on either more restrictive booking terms or price in order to earn points or miles.
