Be loyal, be honored
PROMOTION: Hotel loyalty points are becoming increasingly valuable. Hundreds of thousands of people become members in hotel loyalty programs. What is the benefit? Very simply, it does not cost anything but it’s worth a lot. If you are loyal to a hotel brand, they thank you with presents, upgrades and big discounts!
The hotel industry has helped pioneer the concept of the modern loyalty program. Over the years, hotel loyalty programs have shifted and expanded to meet the ever-changing needs of their customers. Now more than ever, travellers choose their hotels through social media channels, customer reviews and rewards, and hotels around the world are rising to meet the challenge of winning their loyalty by offering incredible perks for their most loyal customers.
To see it very easily why it is a great choice to become a member even if you travel just rarely, the perfect example is the loyalty program of one of the world’s largest hotel chains, Hilton Worldwide.
The Hilton Worldwide loyalty program is called HHonors (Hilton Honors) and its members can just by subscribing receive free internet access in every hotel, are able to choose their room in advance via Digital Check-in and from now are entitled to a discount from the best available online rate.
After a few stays, HHonors members receive complimentary set up and water in the room, upgrade upon availability, 48-hour room guarantee, late check-out and complimentary usage of different services in the hotel.
With the HHonors program, participants can earn points at around 4,300 hotels and resorts across 12 different brands in more than 94 countries. Hilton also partners with a large number of premier travel brands to help offer a full experience for their program participants. Members can redeem points for frequent flier miles at 60 different airlines and as an extra bonus, can cash in their frequent flier miles for HHonors points.
Aside from the awesome perks above there is one perk in particular that makes the HHonors program a number one choice: zero blackout dates. No matter when you travel, program members are generously rewarded for the money they spend with Hilton.
Another rare gem this program offers is the ability for participants to earn points for hotel stay and airline travel in the same stay, which is uncommon in the hotel loyalty industry.
So do not waste your time, become a member and earn some points while on holiday or business trip.
