In case you are an avid traveler, you will be happy to find out that Marriott offers a few other ways to save!

Marriott Bonvoy rewards

Bonvoy is Marriott’s loyalty and reward program. Members get access to a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Reduced member rates.
  • Free Wi-Fi.
  • Mobile check-in.

The Marriott loyalty program is tiered – you get bigger benefits as you spend more and more nights per year at Marriott hotels. As you go up the ladder, you receive access to more and more perks, like:

  • Up to 75% Points bonus.
  • Late checkout.
  • Lounge access.
  • Guaranteed room type.
  • Dedicated elite support.

With the Bonvoy program, members can also accumulate points and spend them toward future reservations.

Best Rate Guarantee

The Best Rate Guarantee is designed to help you get the best rates at Marriott. This program works a lot like price matching guarantees at Home Depot or Walmart, though it’s slightly different.

To make use of this program, you need to first make a reservation via an official Marriott reservation channel. Then, if you find a lower rate for the same hotel, the same room type, and the same reservation dates on a non-Marriott website, you may submit a Best Rate claim.

If the claim is approved, you’ll get a lower rate plus either a 25% extra discount on the room (20% for Design Hotels) or 5,000 Bonvoy Points.

Resort deals

Marriott occasionally runs resort deals throughout the year – you may check them out at the Marriott website. As of this post’s writing, Marriott offered 20% off at participating resorts.
