Hi, there are many very useful bloggers & blogs in the US about miles/points/promos. Does anybody know any sites like that focused on UK market?

(seems to cover more European than most others not specifically European)

My little effort is by far the largest in terms of posts, page views and engaged readership.

The other people out there include:
georgethetravelmonkey (who I don't know)
ukpoints (whom I know)
invol-upgrade (whom I know)
milesfromblighty (who I don't know)
continentalclub.co.uk (whom I know)

GhettoIFE is not 'miles and points'. 'Points To Be Made' is in theory pan-European although has yet to define its niche. (I also know the authors of both of these, just to be clear about whether or not I am biased in who I list!)

Head for Points covers all the interesting Avios and Virgin stuff, plus a chunk of Miles & More and Air France / KLM, which is where the key UK interest lies. Whilst I also cover the major hotel promos, they are genuinely global and - whilst I put a UK spin on them which has some value - you will also get a lot of value from Loyalty Traveler and Loyalty Lobby.

The Business Traveller website is also good for who is flying where and new hotel openings, although its miles and points coverage lacks depth, to put it mildly.

Whilst not strictly UK, flightquery.de is great for good fares from Europe (good fares from LHR are near impossible cause of those pesky taxes).
