Citi has unveiled its new travel portal. The new Citi Travel with Booking.com offers eligible Citi cardmembers the ability to plan and book travel while earning ThankYou Rewards at the same time.
Citi Launches New Travel Portal
The wait for Citi Travel with Booking.com is over. Rocket Travel by Agoda technology powers the New travel portal from banking giant Citi and travel experts Booking.com and allows eligible Citi cardmembers to book hotels, air travel, car rentals, and attractions through the dedicated portal.
How Does Citi Travel Work?
So, how does the new Citi Travel with Booking.com portal work? The process is essentially the exact same process as with other Booking.com bookings. Citi cardmembers log in through their Citi credit card and can earn (and redeem) Citi ThankYou Points when booking flights, hotels, cruises, and other experiences. From there, they simply select their destination, dates, and how many people are traveling.
With this new travel portal, Citi ThankYou cardmembers can enjoy the following:
- Hotels around the globe: Select from 1.4 million hotels worldwide – from boutique hotels with charm to beloved resort brands – by easily comparing options to find the right travel fit.
- Attractions galore: Hundreds of thousands of attractions can be booked globally, ranging from tours to theme parks. Sample attractions include the Chicago Architecture River Cruise, Manhattan Sky Tour, New York Helicopter Flight, Grand Canyon Guided Hiking Tour, Kennedy Space Center, and much more
- An unrivaled points promo: Now through June 2024, Citi Prestige and Citi Premier cardmembers can earn a total of 10x ThankYou Points by booking their hotels, rental cars, or eligible attractions on Citi Travel, and ThankYou Preferred and Rewards+ cardmembers can earn a total of 5x ThankYou Points on the same bookings.
Citi travelers also have access to 24/7 customer support and the flexibility to book their way: using their eligible Citi credit card, ThankYou Points, or a combination of the two. And, even better, by the end of March, eligible Citi cardmembers will be able to update their mobile app when prompted to access Citi Travel with Booking.com directly from their phone.
“Flexibility, Breadth of Options, and Value”
“The launch of Citi Travel with Booking.com is another stellar example of how Citi continues to offer customers options, from how they want to pay to how they want to travel,” said Anthony Merola, Head of Proprietary Products Management for U.S. Branded Cards at Citi. “We are thrilled to provide those customers the flexibility, breadth of options, and value they desire through our new, intuitive portal where they can book a trip tailored to their preferences or an attraction on their bucket list – all while maximizing the rewards they can earn.”
“This new travel platform will transform the travel planning experience for Citi cardholders,” said Sarah Moore, Senior Vice President of Rocket Travel. “Our technology connects Citi customers with the full spectrum of trip planning options available across our brands, where cardmembers will find value from the time they start dreaming of their next trip, through booking, even during and after their travels.”
