There are many reasons you’ll travel better as a Marriott Bonvoy member

Take Advantage of Global Promotions

Global Promotions — hotly anticipated and ever-changing — enable you to live your best life across thousands of Marriott Bonvoy participating properties around the world. Check for new global promotions every time you log into your Marriott Bonvoy account. 

What kind of goodies are in store? You could score bonus points with a stay … or rise up the ranks like a boss with bonus Elite Night Credits. The possibilities are endless — but you have to catch the promotions before they expire, so always make sure to hop into your account to see what offers are available. 

Uber Eats to the Rescue 

Perhaps you are craving a takeout pad Thai or could really use a gourmet cheeseburger with all the fixings. Maybe you’re even looking to save time grocery shopping or get points for everyday activities. 

Whether you’re ordering takeout or groceries, you can turn to Uber Eats to satisfy your appetite. All over the U.S., when you link your Marriott Bonvoy account to the popular food delivery app, you’ll earn points on eligible purchases. You can also get extra points when you order food or grocery orders for delivery with Uber Eats while staying at a hotel within the Marriott portfolio. 

Pile Up Points with Airline Partnerships

Let’s say you’re an international person of mystery. (Life goals, right?) If you love to fly from London to Hong Kong or Mexico City to Vancouver at the drop of a hat, you’ll definitely want to take advantage of Marriott Bonvoy’s partnerships with over 40 airline partners

You can earn more towards your next hotel stay by transferring your airline miles with our participating partners into Marriott Bonvoy Points. It’s an easy way to earn airline miles for free nights — and there’s nothing mysterious about that. 

Air + Car = All Your Transportation Needs 

Whether your plane is landing in Berlin or Miami, sometimes you need to hit the highway, stat. That transition becomes ultrasmooth when you book your air travel and car rentals with 250-plus airlines and car rental companies under the Marriott Bonvoy umbrella. Plus, you can pay in points or points plus cash — the choice is yours. 

Make the Most of Marriott Bonvoy Moments 

The perfect trip includes fulfilling unbelievable dreams and forging unforgettable memories. That’s what Marriott Bonvoy Moments are all about, too. 

New Marriott Bonvoy Moments are made available almost daily, but you could use points to redeem instantly or bid on experiences that have you savoring incredible, Michelin-starred cuisine in Tokyo; watching from a Marriott Bonvoy Luxury Suite as hockey superstars do battle in Toronto; or singing along from prime floor seats as a chart-topping pop group performs live in Amsterdam. There’s so much magic to choose from. 

Don’t miss out on 1-Point Drops, which enable you to convert a single Marriott Bonvoy point (yes, you’re reading that right) into a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The 1-Point Drops are unveiled on Marriott Bonvoy’s TikTok and Instagram, along with the Marriott Bonvoy Moments website, before each drop, so check back regularly. 

Plan Your Ultimate Trip with the Mobile App 

The Marriott Bonvoy App delivers the convenience you crave. Via the app, you can book the best available rates directly at some 8,000 hotels worldwide. It also enables you to enjoy Mobile Check-in and Mobile Key. Plus, you can chat with your hotel whenever you need help. 

Use the Road Trip Search planner to search and book hotels along your route, whether it’s from Seattle to San Diego or Calgary to Ottawa. With the “Wishlist” feature, you can also keep track of all your dream stays in fabulous locations, such as the Paris Marriott Champs Elysees Hotel or The St. Regis Hong Kong.  

So, pick up your phone and get ready to plan your ideal vacation or business trip.
