With Aeroplan’s launch of the HotelSavers program, members can use points to book top hotel brands worldwide. The points redemption program is made possible directly through Aeroplan hotel partnerships. Members can book hotel stays with 30% fewer points than other non-Aeroplan bank-bank-based travel programs.
Aeroplan Launches Hotel Rewards Program For Canadians
Aeroplan, Canada’s leading travel loyalty program, has launched HotelSavers, a program that allows members to book hotel stays with their Aeroplan points. For the first time, Aeroplan is focusing its efforts on delivering a hotel rewards program for Canadians. Aeroplan credit card holders now have the option to redeem points for both Air Canada flights and hotel stays at superior rates.
In addition, members can access hundreds of hotels through the Aeroplan member-exclusive reservation platform. Thanks to Aeroplan’s direct hotel partnerships for the HotelSavers program, members can enjoy greater value for their earned points outside of flights.
“When Canadians want to fly on points, they can already count on Aeroplan as Aeroplan credit card holders can redeem for Air Canada flight rewards for an average of 30% fewer points than if they used points for non-Aeroplan Canadian bank-based travel programs. However, no one has focused on delivering Canadians a great hotel rewards program – that changes today. With HotelSavers, we’re now offering Aeroplan members great options to book hotels using their points – without compromising the excellent value they’ve come to expect. HotelSavers is yet another way we’re investing to solidify Aeroplan as the go-to rewards choice for all Canadians who travel,” said Scott O’Leary, Vice President, Loyalty and Product at Air Canada. Press Release.
