Whether you’re about to embark on your umpteenth business trip of the year, or planning a once-in-a-lifetime family holiday, becoming a Marriott Bonvoy member opens up a whole world of benefits, from free hotel stays to concerts and car rentals. Read on to learn about the advantages of becoming a member, no matter what kind of traveller you are. 

Reap the rich rewards of family travel

Families are filled with different personalities, so achieving the right balance of activities is key.

Combining city culture with beachside relaxation covers a lot of bases. It's exactly this appealing mix that makes Le Méridien Ra Beach Hotel & Spa near Barcelona such a great choice for families. There are also two children's clubs to keep the little ones entertained with music, dance and art workshops, as well as photography classes, kayaking, paddle surfing and volleyball for older children – so there’ll be more than enough time for parents to relax.

If the younger members of your family have a thirst for knowledge, then an iconically historic destination is bound to go down well. You might treat them to an unforgettable holiday to Cairo, where the JW Marriott Hotel Cairo will help organise a trip to the Pyramids of Giza. Journey on camelback to see the ancient ruins, then sail the River Nile on wooden felucca boats and learn about mummies at the Pharaonic Village.

With the perfect destination for your family selected, you can rely on the Marriott Bonvoy Travel Programme to provide the icing on the cake, as you earn or redeem points during your stay.

Satisfy all your culinary cravings as you travel

From European foodie hubs like Dublin, London and Hamburg to gastronomic stars of the Middle East like Jeddah, Muscat and Riyadh, travelling to experience delicious new flavours is as good a reason as any. 

For the dedicated gourmet traveller, one must-try destination is, of course, San Sebastian in Spain, with 16 Michelin stars in a 20km radius. Staying in the Hotel Maria Cristina, a Luxury Collection Hotel, San Sebastian will keep you in the heart of the action with 29 luxury suites and its own impressive restaurant overlooking the Urumea River.

If you’re searching for further culinary inspiration, look no further than Marriott Bonvoy Moments. Marriott Bonvoy members can redeem their points for exclusive money-can’t-buy experiences for a range of culinary experiences. Members can also now earn points at participating bars, cafés and restaurants, even if they're not staying at the hotel that's home to the venue.

Introduce a new dimension into your business trips

Business travellers understand the importance both of a good night’s rest and a healthy quota of enjoyment during trips. To this end, Members of Marriott Bonvoy can take advantage of a whole host of benefits, from late check-outs, allowing for those all-important extra few hours’ sleep, to using their phone as a check-in key. Holders of Marriott Bonvoy Credit Cards will earn bonus points on spends, too.

Travelling a lot for work inevitably means staying in airport hotels from time to time, but when they’re as good as Marriott's, it's a pleasure to do so. A case in point is the Renaissance Amsterdam Schiphol Airport Hotel – with its stylish and spacious guest rooms, including expansive suites, plush bedding and upbeat cocktail bar, you'll think you're on holiday.

Enrich your luxury travel experiences

If you're no stranger to mixing travel and luxury, the Marriott Bonvoy Travel Programme just enhances your options. Each new tier brings its own unique rewards, but at the highest level, Ambassador Elite, you’ll discover a wealth of delights to make your stay memorable.

Highlights include the Ambassador Service, a dedicated personal concierge, and Your24 – the option to check in at any time of the day. So, if your flight arrives in the early hours of the morning, there'll be no waiting around to check in. If you opt to enjoy the room until 8pm in the evening, then it's fully at your discretion – the very definition of luxury.

So whether you’re being pampered in Oman at the stunning Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel or unwinding in a luxury boutique suite in the Renaissance Paris Vendome Hotel, Marriott Bonvoy turns your holiday into a dreamy getaway.

And don’t forget: four out of the five membership tiers on offer include an Enhanced Room Upgrade benefit. In other words, if a more premium room is available, it’s yours, for the duration of your stay. Not only that but for Platinum Elite members and above, this includes selected suites. With this in mind, it’s always worth opting in to receive marketing communications to get the latest offers, tips and new destinations.

Seize the day with spontaneous travel

Sometimes, the best decisions we make in life are the spontaneous ones. As a Marriott Bonvoy member, you’ll get even more out of those eleventh-hour holiday plans and spur-of-the-moment getaways. No matter where you’re flying to, you can earn points with over 40 airlines worldwide which you can then redeem for free nights in extraordinary hotels, incredible Marriott Bonvoy experiences and plenty more besides. Redeeming Marriott Bonvoy points for a four-night stay and getting the fifth night free is a brilliant example of just how rewarding Marriott Bonvoy membership can be, while all members can take advantage of exclusive rates, and at participating hotels and resorts members will save 20% on last-minute weekend getaways.

All Elite Benefits, including those for Ambassadors, are valid only upon availability and programme terms and conditions apply.
