New York, NY (Vocus) September 9, 2008
With Continental Airlines joining the list of major air carriers charging passengers a $15 fee for travelers' first checked bag, loewshotels.com Loews Hotels has announced that its "Baggage Buy Back" incentive will be extended through November 30, 2008. The program, initiated immediately after American Airlines began charging passengers for checked baggage this spring, reimburses guests for their $15 checked baggage fee. Arriving guests need only present any airline bag fee receipt at the front desk to receive the rebate, which will be issued in the form of a credit to their bill at check-out. The Baggage Buy Back rebate is available at Loews' 17 properties in the U.S. and Canada. Loews Hotels will offer credit for up to two bags for a maximum of $30 per occupied room per stay.
"Since we announced this program in May, we have received tremendously positive feedback from our guests, particularly as more and more airlines have instituted a baggage fee," said Jonathan Tisch, Chairman and CEO of Loews Hotels. "With the holiday season approaching, we know that many people will be traveling and want to help them defray some of the costs."
