VOILA's points-based frequency guest program provides recognition benefits and room redemption opportunities at participating network hotels. But unlike big chain programs, VOILA enables independent hotel groups to stay independent and maintain their unique qualities.
VOILA provides hotel- or group-branded solutions for our partner hotels, with VOILA acting as the supporting brand (similar to Star Alliance or OneWorld for FFP's). This allows members to earn and redeem points across a wide variety of hotels and redemption partners in the VOILA global network.
From the consumer's perspective, this means members can enjoy the rich experiences and extraordinary qualities independent hotels offer while earning points and receiving benefits typically tied to big chain loyalty programs.
