The deal

When you book an eligible hotel through Hotels.com as a rewards member now through 29 July for stays between 15 July 2020 – 31 December 2020 you will earn two stamps for each night stayed instead of the typical one stamp per night.

Once you’ve collected 10 stamps, you earn a reward night that’s valued at the average price of the nights you collected.

Here’s what you have to do:

  1. Sign-up or sign-in to the Hotels.com loyalty programme
  2. Book an eligible hotel by 29 July 2020 for a stay between 15 July 2020 – 31 December 2020
  3. Select the “pay now” option, but keep it flexible by selecting the “free cancellation rate”
  4. Use this promo code (RWD1EXTRA) at checkout

Voila! Your rewards nights will be credited to your account 72 hours after your stay. The best part about this deal? You can collect unlimited stamps, so you could be well on your way to earning multiple free nights. On top of that, there are no blackout dates for reward nights and you can redeem your nights at over 500,000 properties worldwide.

Much of Europe has reopened to British travellers so there’s still time to squeeze in a summer holiday this year after months of lockdown. Hotels.com has properties all around the world that you can book now to redeem rewards nights at later.

For travel within the U.K., there are some stunning hotels to earn rewards nights on. Not to mention, Hotels.com offers more than its namesake — you can book apartments, vacation rentals, houses and more.

Here’s a look at some stays you can book through Hotels.com:

How to maximise your booking

Hotels.com offers one of the most rewarding loyalty programmes out there with just 10 stays required before earning a free night. While this deal is already very generous, it can become even more lucrative when you book with a travel rewards credit card. This is one of the easiest and fastest ways to build your points balance.
