Citi Travel with Booking.com
Citi today launched its brand-new travel portal, Citi Travel with Booking.com. The new booking portal was first announced in the summer of 2022 and was set to launch later that year. While delayed by a couple of months, the site is now up and running.
The new travel portal, powered by Rocket Travel by Agoda technology, allows Citi customers who have Citi ThankYou Rewards credit cards to book hotels, air travel, car rentals, and attractions through Citi Travel, via the Citi website. And, by the end of March, eligible Citi cardmembers will be able to update their mobile app when prompted to access Citi Travel with Booking.com directly from their phone.
These bookings allow eligible Citi cardmembers to earn ThankYou Points which are redeemable for their next trip booking with Citi Travel or with one of the 180+ other ThankYou Rewards partners, including iconic and hyper-relevant brands.
Citi travelers also now have access to 24/7 customer support and have the flexibility to book their way. You can choose to book with an eligible Citi credit card, ThankYou Points, or a combination of the two. x
With this new travel portal, Citi ThankYou cardmembers can enjoy:
- Hotels around the globe: Select from 1.4 million hotels worldwide – from boutique hotels with charm to beloved resort brands – by easily comparing options to find the right travel fit.
- Attractions galore: There are hundreds of thousands of attractions that can be booked globally, ranging from tours to theme parks. Sample attractions include the Chicago Architecture River Cruise, Manhattan Sky Tour, New York Helicopter Flight, Grand Canyon Guided Hiking Tour, Kennedy Space Center and much more!
- An unrivaled points promo: Now through June 2024, Citi Prestige and Citi Premier cardmembers can earn a total of 10x ThankYou Points by booking their hotels, rental cars, or eligible attractions on Citi Travel, and ThankYou Preferred and Rewards+ cardmembers can earn a total of 5x ThankYou Points on the same bookings.
Once you visit the new booking portal, you will be prompted to log in with your Citi credentials. You will then see all your eligible Citi credit cards. Here you get a snapshot of the benefits and options that each card provides for Citi Travel bookings. You also see the points available on each card. As you can notice in the image above, Citi Premier is a much better option than the Citi Double Cash card. You get $100 off a single hotel stay of $500 or more every year and 10X points on bookings.
As part of this launch, Citi Travel is also rolling out the first phase of its Hotel and Luxury Collection properties and will continue to broaden the breadth of these luxury properties and offerings over the next year.
