Two new exclusive hotel partners at Miles & More
Tuesday 28, September 2010
Two new hotel partners have come into the Miles & More fold to broaden still more the opportunities for members to collect and redeem mile credits.
With Ritz-Carlton Hotels and Oberoi Hotels & Resorts, Europe’s most successful frequent flyer programme has gained two distinguished hotel groups, which operate exclusive hotels in the deluxe category, worldwide.
Ritz-Carlton became a Miles & More partner on 15 September. From now on, Miles & More members can earn two Miles & More award miles for every U.S. dollar / Euro spent per stay at any of the group’s 73 hotels and resorts in North and South America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Ritz-Carlton’s parent company, Marriott International, has partnered Miles & More for 17 years, allowing members to accrue and spend mileage at a total of 3,300 Marriot International hotels.
Oberoi Hotels & Resorts is joining the programme on 1 October 2010. Miles & More cardholders can earn a minimum 500 award miles per stay at the group’s deluxe hotels or resorts in India, Egypt, Indonesia and Mauritius. An attractive inaugural promotion is also on offer to the programme’s close to 20 million members to stock up their mileage account: Up to 30 November, Oberoi Hotels & Resorts is offering double award mileage per stay as well as an upgrade to the next higher room category.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
