As tourism sees a revival with loosened border restrictions, it seems people all over the world are embarking on “revenge travel” — to indulge themselves in some long-awaited travelling overseas.

This high demand met with a relatively less supply of flights and accommodations has unfortunately driven up the prices. Coupled with inflation and the recent GST hike, our wallets are going to feel the pinch.

However, if you must travel, you can still get the best bargains by signing up for free hotel loyalty programmes. Hotel loyalty programmes tend to come with member-exclusive benefits like special pricing, room upgrades, and free breakfast.

With Marriott Bonvoy’s loyalty programme, you can unlock amazing benefits at more than 8,000 properties across 139 countries and territories. Some of the brands under Marriott Bonvoy include The Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis, W Hotels, JW Marriott, Sheraton, and Westin, just to name a few.

Like most loyalty programmes, Marriott Bonvoy employs a tiered membership with a total of six tiers: Member, Silver Elite, Gold Elite, Platinum Elite, Titanium Elite, and Ambassador Elite.

Even with the most basic Member tier, you can already enjoy exclusive member rates and earn points with your stays. These points can then be used to redeem dining and spa experiences at the hotel or to offset future bookings.

As you rise up the ranks, you can get more points on your stays, late checkouts, room upgrades, welcome gifts (points, breakfast, or amenity) upon arrival, and full lounge access.

Besides, you can also earn points from booking hotel and flight packages, local experiences, or all-inclusive vacations at Marriott Bonvoy.

Below are some of the properties under Marriott Bonvoy. If you need some travel inspiration, check out these meaningful travel experiences.
