ADVERTORIAL • March 2021
With Marriott Bonvoy, you can turn loyalty points into Avios, free stays and much more
Travel may have taken a backseat for now, but our wanderlust is stronger than ever, and planning future holidays is a firm fixture among our favourite lockdown pastimes.
For Executive Club Members, banking those all-important points is, without doubt, a priority, and Marriott Bonvoy – the travel programme that connects 30 hotel brands across 133 countries, as well as more than 20,000 stunning home rentals – has made it simpler than ever for Members to earn rewards and free stays in those dreamiest of locales as soon as restrictions lift.

Signing up is a no-brainer if you’re an Executive Club Member because the opportunities to bank Avios are so wide-ranging. You’ll have access to members’ rates across the largest hotel group on the planet, with more than 7,600 properties across sterling brands such as St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, The Ritz-Carlton, JW Marriott, W Hotels and The Luxury Collection, and you’ll earn Avios on every stay. You’ll get two Avios per US dollar spent at premium properties such as Le Méridien and Autograph Collection, and one point for every dollar on select service brands such as Moxy and AC Hotels. If you’re keen to convert your Marriott Bonvoy points to Avios, you’ll get one Avios for every three points.
Cashing in on your points is a doddle, too. Just remember to set your earning preferences to ‘Miles’ when you enrol, making sure to add your Executive Club Membership number to your profile. When you make a reservation, simply quote your Marriott Bonvoy membership number, and the Avios points will land in your account around six weeks after your stay.

Stay with confidence
We know cleanliness and hygiene will continue to be front of mind for anyone considering travelling this year. Good news then that Marriott Bonvoy hotels have introduced enhanced technologies and cleanliness standards to provide ultimate reassurance for travellers. Plus, the Marriott Bonvoy app has rolled out contactless options meaning you’ll be able to check in and out with ease, speak with hotel staff and other guests, and even lock your room, all using your mobile device. Nifty, right?
Work from anywhere
Marriott Bonvoy’s benefits don’t stop there. Why ‘work from home’ when you could ‘work from hotel’? Take your office offshore and use Marriott’s Day Pass and Stay Pass to help you attain that all-important work-life equilibrium. Day Pass users get access to super slick Wi-Fi and use of a guest room from 6am to 6pm, guaranteeing a prolifically productive day of work, while Stay Pass also allows access to facilities such as the gym and dining vouchers. It’s great for the whole gang, too – pick up a Play Pass, and work in peace while your kids enjoy a host of supervised activities.
