Way back on 24 April 2019, The Points Guy U.K. was born. We had an incredible first year filled with travel, fun, flying and phenomenal growth. Our second year began as the global pandemic fully took hold. The past year certainly looked a little different, but as we put away our passports, we shifted our focus to help our readers navigate the new world.

We rode the wave of cancellations and refunds, ensuring we all knew our rights. Then came the myriad of sometimes complex airline and hotel status and voucher extensions. Summer 2020 saw travel open up again for a brief moment and we jumped on all the wonderful possibilities, which were to be short-lived as we headed back into lengthy and strict lockdowns, travel bans and the inevitable introduction of hotel quarantine.

All the while, we stayed strong, and through these turbulent times, the numbers speak for themselves.
