Vistara offering 2x Club Vistara points to try out Premium Economy

Vistara launched a new product in the Indian domestic aviation market, which is the Premium Economy cabin, and was never seen in Indian aviation before.

To encourage more people to try out the Premium Economy offering, Vistara is now offering 2x points on Club Vistara to passengers who fly on Premium Economy between February 5, 2015 to March 5, 2015.

UberX usually prices at a slight premium to local transport options such as cab, but I find it reasonable enough to have made a switch to UberX in Mumbai…

Hyatt offering 2 nights for price of 1 across India

Hyatt did an excellent 50% off promotion in India earlier this year, which allowed me to earn Diamond status with them on a cheaper price than what I would have usually paid.
