In the Know: Decoding Travel Rewards Loyalty Programs

After you have picked the destination to your next vacation, it is important to choose the right accommodation to make the trip truly special. For those who travel regularly, be it for business or pleasure, joining a travel rewards loyalty program can be a great way to help stretch your dollar further and help you earn points while you travel. More and more travellers are looking for a loyalty program with greater flexibility that is simpler, more intuitive and seamless – and with Marriott Rewards, members have the freedom to fuel their passion for travel experiences even faster.

According to a recent Switchfly Hotel Reward Payback Survey, Marriott Rewards offers the best reward payback among leading hotel loyalty programs. When Switchfly compared the rewards and frequent guest programs of four key hotel brands, Marriott Rewards came out on top offering guests the best reward value for every dollar spent on hotel rates at 9.4% return. Joining a points program has also become increasingly beneficial as more hotel chains allow customers to pay with points and is a smart way for Canadian travellers to save by avoiding the inflated exchange rate when travelling abroad.

Marriott Rewards points can help you travel more and save more. With Marriott Rewards, members enjoy the benefits of loyalty in ways that are most meaningful to them, in their everyday lives. Members can earn points at over 4,000 hotels globally across 17 distinct brands that can be redeemed for hotel stays, as well as for a range of other benefits, such as air travel, frequent flyer miles, cruises, car rentals, and merchandise. In addition to earning points for their stays, Marriott Rewards members enjoy exclusive benefits, such as free Wi-Fi and mobile check-in and check-out through the Marriott Mobile app, as well as special offers only available when booking direct on

In addition, the Marriott Rewards program recently expanded to now include Delta Hotels and Resorts, giving its 55 million members even more choice and flexibility while they travel.  Giving you access now to a wider range of hotels world-wide, members can now earn points or miles and Elite night credits, and redeem for free night stays, at twenty-one Delta Hotels across Canada, with the brand’s fourteen remaining Canadian properties joining the program in late April 2016.
