plus earn up to 3,000 Wyndham Rewards bonus points over a two or more night stay

Wyndham Rewards®, the world’s most generous rewards programme, today announced it is relaxing requirements for earning Member Levels (status) in 2020, reducing the number of nights members need to stay by 40 percent.

The relaxed requirements build on earlier efforts by Wyndham Hotels & Resorts to help its Wyndham Rewards®, members amid COVID-19, such as extending the expiration of any previously earned Member Levels through the end of 2021 and pausing points expiration through September 30, 2020. They also complement Wyndham Hotels & Resort’s recently unveiled summer promotion in Europe Middle-East Eurasia and Africa, Travel Again which offers guests 15% off plus gives Wyndham Rewards®members the opportunity to earn 3,000 Wyndham Rewards points.

“Throughout the pandemic, we’ve put our Wyndham Rewards® members first, providing flexibility while protecting their points and their benefits,” said Eliot Hamlisch, executive vice president, Loyalty and Revenue Optimization, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “Now with travel picking up, and hotels adopting our new Count on Us health and safety protocols, we’re taking the additional step of easing requirements for our Member Levels. It’s one more way we’re letting members know, when they’re ready to travel, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts is ready to welcome them.”

Reach New Levels with Fewer Stays
Wyndham Rewards’ Member Levels are already among the most attainable in the industry and now, attaining new levels is even easier in 2020. Members will unlock Gold when they stay three qualifying nights, Platinum when they stay nine qualifying nights and Diamond when they stay 24 qualifying nights. Only stays in 2020 will count towards the new requirements, including those from earlier this year, which will be retroactively applied. Member Level benefits vary by level and range from perks like late check-out, preferred rooms and points accelerators to suite upgrades, welcome amenities and more.

The initiative’s immediate focus is to further enhance a broad range of health and safety protocols across properties in the region. This includes the consistent use of quality disinfectants at all hotels, the introduction of robust new training and guidelines, and ongoing access to critical health essentials through trusted suppliers. Every hotel in EMEA operating under one of the brands of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts will also be encouraged to appoint a ‘hygiene hero’ to champion the new protocols at each hotel.
