    You can now use CC vouchers at Hotels.com

    But a word of warning, the number of hotels where you cannot use them is massive

    UBER looks like a cracking deal - particularly seeing how much cheaper they are than standard taxis.

    Thank you for posting your review. We have today updated the fine print on our website to make it clear on how to use your tokens. I can confirm there are no exclusions so I do hope you have a great stay when using your Hotel.com tokens.

    Our Uber in Nottingham is useless. Almost always surge pricing because they have so few drivers, but they have stopped employing taking them on. They wont last long
    The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.

    Hotels.com Clubcard Boost worked for me

    Just spent a few days worrying about this deal as it was really going to help fund our family holiday.

    Took the plunge yesterday thinking I'd keep trying until I found something that worked but in the end I had no problems booking our 1st choice (a Novotel - brand has been listed on all the versions of the exception list I found).

    Tesco have messed up on getting the info right in the first place and making the details clear but for me it worked like this.
    1. I hoped that the Clubcard employee Martin was correct, grabbed a screenshot to prove my point if he wasn't.
    2. Converted points to vouchers and didn't bother about the exclusion list the email mentioned - Clubcard Martin told me not too
    3. I used the link Tesco currently (13th July) has in point 4 of the deal "How it works" - it seems to be true that if you use the wrong link the vouchers aren't excepted
    4. I had to pay for taxes and charges with another payment method but the voucher amount was removed from the total and booking confirmed.

    Thought I'd share in case it helped anyone else

    Can anyone confirm or deny the rumour that you don't get secret prices when using Clubcard vouchers? If true that makes this deal a lot less attractive.

    I think headforpoints have got this one wrong. I've just used Clubcard vouchers to book a hotel on that 'exclusion list'.

    Uber is often not cheaper than normal minicabs
    Be careful and get quotes before booking an Uber. Their prices rise and fall depending upon demand and the time of day. Often a private cab company is cheaper.

    Can I use a voucher in someone else's name?
    Does anyone know if I use a voucher from a relative's account to book my Hotels.com room, will it be accepted if the name doesn't match the name of the hotel booking?
    thanks.
