Aeroplan Launches HotelSavers, Giving Members a New Redemption Option
Aeroplan, Canada’s leading travel loyalty program, has launched HotelSavers. This is a new option for members, allowing them to book stays with Aeroplan points at preferential rates at a broad range of hotels worldwide.
Aeroplan’s direct partnerships with hotels and exclusively negotiated redemption rates promises good value for members. Aeroplan says savings in points are up to 30% versus non-HotelSavers hotels available on the member exclusive reservation platform. A simple rewards grid makes it easy to know how many points you need for stays at one of eight reward categories, ranging from economy to luxury. There are stays to suit every budget, from as few as 10,000 points per night for a standard room with no restrictions on room availability.
Taxes are always included and all Aeroplan HotelSavers properties offer an option to book a refundable rate. Some HotelSavers properties also offer non-refundable options for even fewer points. Additionally, members have the option to redeem 50/50 (points plus cash) to pay for their stays.
HotelSavers is launching with 39 world-class hotel brands for redemption, including some of the world’s most coveted hotels and unique properties, including:
- (Luxury) Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts, Taj Hotels, Small Luxury Hotels of the World, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Preferred Hotels & Resorts, Kimpton Hotels and others;
- (Premium) Le Germain Hotels, Omni Hotels & Resorts, Noble House Hotels & Resorts, Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts, Pullman, Hotel Indigo, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts and others;
- (Midscale & Economy) Coast Hotels, Holiday Inn Hotels, Novotel Hotels & Resorts, Alt Hotels; Ibis and Ibis Styles;
HotelSavers offers the best member value for Aeroplan points outside of flights. In addition, borrowing from the best of Aeroplan flight redemptions, there are aspirational “sweet spots” to uncover where value on hotels is even better than the typical value per point when purchasing flights.
Examples of Canadian locations include five-star hotels like the Shangri-La Vancouver and the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto, which can be booked for as little as 45,000 points and 35,000 points per night respectively; plus both the InterContinental Montreal and the Le Germain Charlevoix Hotel & Spa can be booked for as little as 25,000 points per night, all including taxes. For international locations, the Fairmont Orchid in Hawaii and the Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa in the Cayman Islands can be booked for as little as 75,000 points and 55,000 points per night respectively, including taxes. Members should look for the “HotelSavers” tag on properties and see the value for themselves.
Since relaunching in 2020, the Aeroplan program has continued to deliver world-class partnerships for its members. On top of its industry-leading, 45 airline partners for flight rewards, the program has expanded to retail partners like Starbucks and Ontario’s LCBO, and additional travel partners like Uber. With HotelSavers, Aeroplan has added over 7,000 points hotels around the world to choose from, giving members even more ways than ever to redeem their Aeroplan points.
