Bangkok, Thailand, June 20, 2023 / TRAVELINDEX / Members of the award-winning Best Western Rewards® program are encouraged to gift points to friends and family for milestone trips around the world. With a season filled with celebratory milestones, BWH Hotels’ award-winning loyalty program – Best Western Rewards (BWR®) – is excited to announce its new “Gift of Travel” program. With the Gift of Travel program, BWR loyalty members can provide travel experiences to their loved ones at any BWH Hotels (BWH) property around the globe by gifting rewards points to other BWR members for momentous trips.
These gifts will allow their loved ones to embark on amazing journeys, whether it be a cross-country road trip or a celebratory adventure. BWR members can extend the “Gift of Travel” in one of two ways:
• Gifting a Free Night: BWR members can gift a one-night stay to immediate family members through the “Gift a Free Night” option in their BWR account.
• Redeeming a Best Western Gift Card: BWR members can redeem their points for a Best Western Gift Card and gift that to friends and family. Members can access this option in the redemption section of their BWR account.
“The Gift of Travel program allows globetrotters of all ages to celebrate life’s most cherished moments through travel. By allowing our valued BWR members to use their points – which never expire – towards free nights or gift cards for loved ones, it has never been easier to gift experiences that will undoubtedly last a lifetime,” said Larry Cuculic, President and CEO, BWH. “By choosing one of our hotels around the world for their travels, our loyal guests will enjoy the exceptional hospitality they have come to know and love.”
