Marriott Bonvoy has announced multiple offers for its members at the start of 2021.
Marriott intends to give “travel goals a big boost” and help Elite status earners progress to the next level faster following the downturn in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The group will deposit 50% of the required Elite Night Credits based on members’ 2020 Elite status into accounts in February, giving them a head start towards gaining Elite status in 2022. The American hotel brand is also reducing the spend threshold for achieving Ambassador Elite status by 30 per cent this year to US$14,000 – this will return to US$20,000 in 2022.
In addition to all this, the group is reducing off-peak redemption rates globally by 10% for all future reservations until 30th September, 2021, when booked by 21st February, 2021. The group advises that the new pricing may take time to show up on the system.
Looking ahead, the group promises to open up registration for its new global promotion Better Two-gether, allowing members to earn double the number of points and Elite Night Credits for stays of two nights or more between February 16 and April 27, 2021.
