How to exchange Clubcard points for Best Western Hotels vouchers

Is it worth converting your Tesco Clubcard points into vouchers for Best Western hotels? And how do you do it? Today I want to look at whether Best Western hotels are a good use of your Clubcard vouchers.

Not all Clubcard Boost offers are a great deal. This page of Shopper Points helps you decide which is the best Clubcard redemption by listing ALL Clubcard Boost offers based on the multiple of face value you get.

As you can see, offers range from 4 x face value (days out vouchers, restaurant deals) down to 2 x. Even at double the face value, of course, you are getting a better deal than redeeming your vouchers in a Tesco store at face value.

Spending Clubcard vouchers at Best Western hotels

If you’re planning a holiday and would like to save money, you could use your Clubcard vouchers towards a hotel booking.

We wrote about how to convert your Clubcard points into Hilton room bookings across the UK here.

But you can also use your Clubcard points to stay at a Best Western hotel.

How do I exchange my Clubcard points?

The Tesco page to convert your Tesco Clubcard vouchers into Best Western tokens is here.

For every £0.50 in Clubcard vouchers you get £1.50 Best Western tokens. This means you will get a face value of 3x, although this is not strictly true as I explain below.

The tokens will be emailed to you within 30 minutes.

How do I use my tokens?

Unfortunately you cannot book or check Best Western availability online. This is the biggest downside of the Best Western deal versus the Hilton deal, because (as our Hilton article explains) you don’t need to ring up to book Hilton rooms any longer.

Once you’ve received your Best Western tokens by email you have to wait about one hour until calling the booking hotline. You can part-pay with Best Western tokens and cash if you don’t have enough.

What do I get for my tokens?

There are around 250 Best Western hotels in the UK and around 2/3 are taking part in this Tesco Clubcard offer. The list of participating Hotels is on this Best Western website.

Most hotels let you book one night or more, however some hotels require a minimum of two nights.

The price you pay is based on the flexible Bed & Breakfast rate, however it is not clear whether you can cancel a Clubcard token booking as you could with a flexible cash booking. If you would otherwise have booked a cheaper non-refundable rate for cash, you won’t be genuinely getting 3x face value for your vouchers although you should do better than 2x.

Certain dates might be excluded and each hotel has got only a limited amount of rooms allocated to the Tesco offer.

It’s worth calling the hotline before ordering the Best Western tokens to find out about availability and minimum nights required. Whilst they could be a good value deal, you don’t want to find yourself in a position where you have already converted your vouchers but the call centre claims that no Tesco rooms are available despite cash rooms being available for sale.

  1. If you can’t get availability via Best Western, which happened to us, then use Hotels.com.
