A Golden partnership for travellers

Golden Chain Motels New Zealand’s largest motel chain has joined New Zealand’s largest and most successful loyalty programme, providing Fly Buys Members with even greater choice in accommodation reward options.

Fly Buys Chief Executive Lance Walker says Golden Chain is a welcome addition to Fly Buys.

“We’re thrilled to have Golden Chain on board and widen our offer to customers for travel. Our Fly Buys Members are keen travellers - we know this from the popularity of our travel rewards. We can now offer Members Fly Buys Points on their entire travel experience. No matter whether it’s a weekend with the kids or a luxury break away, you can collect points for car rental, hotels and motels or redeem flight rewards through our partnership with Air New Zealand.”

“With 98 Golden Chain Motel locations from the Far North to Invercargill, we are pleased to offer our Members more accommodation options than ever, so they can collect points while they are on the move,” he says.

Golden Chain General Manager Kevin Gough says that joining Fly Buys is an exciting way to increase customer loyalty and expand the business’s customer base.

“With over 2.5 million Members, our partnership with Fly Buys gives us great exposure. It’s fantastic to be able to reward our current customers for their loyalty, as well as attract new ones. Customers are rewarded, simply by staying with us, something they would do anyway. They will receive one point for every $20 they spend and we are thrilled we can offer our customers this benefit,” he says.

Fly Buys, established in 1996, now has over 50 Partners, including some of New Zealand’s most well known brands like Z Energy, State, BNZ, New World, Noel Leeming, and Mitre 10.
