ROCKVILLE, Md., Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Free is easy, thanks to a fall travel promotion that kicks off opening registration today from Choice Hotels International (NYSE: CHH).
Starting Sept. 5, 2013, when U.S. and Canadian members of the Choice Privileges rewards program register and take two separate qualifying trips at more than 5,500 hotels worldwide, they can earn a free night at over 1,500 participating Choice Hotels properties throughout North America.* This offer is valid on trips from Sept. 5 – Nov. 13, 2013, and guests can earn unlimited free nights during the promotion period.
"We're delighted to bring our 'Two Trips One Night Free' promotion back by popular demand," said Greg Brown, vice president of loyalty, promotion and relationship marketing for Choice Hotels. "Our guests are always on the lookout for great value, and it doesn't get much better than free. Fall is a wonderful time to travel, and this promotion helps our loyal guests earn free nights faster than many other hotel rewards programs."
Qualifying for the "Two Trips One Night Free" promotion is quick and easy. Guests must be members of the Choice Privileges rewards program and register before their first trip at ChoiceHotels.com. Additionally, they must make their reservations at ChoiceHotels.com or at 800.4CHOICE. After their second qualifying trip, with arrival between Sept. 5 – Nov. 13, 2013, guests will receive enough Choice Privileges rewards points to redeem for one free night at more than 1,500 participating Choice Hotels properties in the U.S. Corporate travelers can make their reservations through a travel agent or their corporate booking system.
Participating Choice Hotels brands are easy on the wallet too. They include: Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion and Cambria Suites as well as Ascend Hotel Collection member hotels. Trips with MainStay Suites, Suburban Extended Stay Hotel, Econo Lodge and Rodeway Inn brand hotels are also eligible, providing each trip is a minimum of two consecutive nights. Plus, guests enjoy perks like free breakfast, free Wi-Fi and free parking at most Choice Hotels locations.
The "Two Trips One Night Free" promotion allows Elite Diamond and Elite Platinum members to make their reservations directly with a hotel. If they book through ChoiceHotels.com, however, they will receive 100 additional Choice Privileges points with every qualifying trip.
Choice Privileges has just surpassed 18 million members worldwide, making it one of the travel industry's fastest growing rewards programs. Membership is free, and members earn points redeemable for free nights, airline miles, gift cards and more.
