(PRWEB) December 14, 2005
WorldHotels, the Americas, a leader in the global independent hotel sales, marketing and distribution industry, today announced its “Mad for Miles” promotion, in which guests can earn 500 miles per night – rather than per stay. The promo is valid Jan. 15, 2006 through April 30, 2006, and is open to guest who are members of United Mileage Plus, Northwest WorldPerks, Delta SkyMiles and American AAdvantage. Frequent flyer program members must provide their membership number at check-in to receive the miles.
The “Mad for Miles” program, announced by Tom Griffiths, vice president of WorldHotels, the Americas, is designed to reach the most active frequent flyer members with a history of staying at WorldHotels’ member properties in the key cities served by the participating airline partners.
“These types of promotions not only benefit our hotels, but also a high percentage of our guests who are active members of frequent flyer programs,” said Griffiths. “We’re able to add real value to our guests’ experiences, while driving increased sales at the hotel level. Our ability to offer members revenue-generating promotions on par with those of large franchise organizations is just one the reasons we’re seeing an increasing number of hotel owners reconsider their brand affiliations, and increasingly evaluate a return to an independent status.”
Griffiths added that the marketing support for this promotion includes a direct mail campaign to qualifying frequent flyer program members, featured information on the airlines’ Web sites and in e-mileage statements, email transmissions to targeted guests, and exposure on http://www.worldhotels.com.
