SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- OpenTable, the world's leading provider of online restaurant reservations and part of Booking Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: BKNG), today announced that OpenTable Dining Points can be used for hotel savings. U.S. diners can easily redeem their points to save anywhere from $20 to $200 at over 400,000 participating hotels available on KAYAK. From boutique properties to international favorites, diners can use their points to save on the perfect hotel.
OpenTable Dining Points are received by making and honoring reservations at participating restaurants, and can be redeemed for Dining Rewards, which can be used toward meals at over 20,000 participating restaurants on OpenTable, and now, hotel savings. Diners can maximize their rewards by redeeming points for discounts on participating KAYAK hotels; for example, 2,000 points can be redeemed for a $40 discount on hotel bookings. The more points you have, the more diners can save on travel.
"OpenTable diners are avid travelers, so we are excited to offer a Dining Reward that will help them save on their next trip," said Steve Hafner, CEO, KAYAK. "KAYAK and OpenTable are both Booking Holdings' brands and creating shared value for our respective users - diners that love to travel and travelers that need to eat - is a priority."
"This will be the first of several additional ways that OpenTable users will be able to redeem their Dining Points," said Joseph Essas, Chief Technology Officer, OpenTable. "We're looking forward to rolling out more options in the near future to further enhance the Dining Rewards program."
