Hotels.com Welcome Rewards celebrates first anniversary

Global membership base more than five million

Auckland, 2 October, 2012: Welcome Rewards™, industry-leading loyalty programme from Hotels.com®, is celebrating its first anniversary in New Zealand, as the global membership base exceeds five million travellers since it launched in the US in 2008.

Rewarding New Zealand leisure and business travellers with one free* night’s accommodation for every ten nights stayed, the Welcome Rewards programme gives Hotels.com customers the chance to redeem their free night’s accommodation across more than 65,000 hotels globally, with no blackout periods imposed.

Katherine Birch, Director of Marketing, Hotels.com Australia and New Zealand, said: “New Zealanders love loyalty programmes and we are proud of Welcome Rewards as it is simple and easy-to-use as well as more generous than many existing hotel loyalty programmes.

To celebrate the anniversary, Hotels.com will be offering New Zealand travellers up to 40% off** selected hotel bookings made through Hotels.com.
