Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has announced it is offering essential workers complimentary gold membership upgrades in its Wyndham Rewards loyalty programme

Eligible workers are defined as (but not limited to) “truck drivers, delivery drivers, warehouse workers, construction workers, sanitation workers, grocery associates and… healthcare workers) can claim their upgrades by visiting www.wyndhamrewards.com/heroes. The offer is available to both new and existing Wyndham Rewards members.

Gold membership offers late checkout, a dedicated member services line, preferred rooms, accelerated points earning and members-only discounts. The membership upgrade must be requested by September 30, 2020 and is valid until the end of 2021, and applies to stays at all 20 Wyndham brands including Days Inn by Wyndham, Super 8 by Wyndham, La Quinta by Wyndham and Wyndham Grand.

“We’re humbled to honour such a deserving group of individuals: everyday people who have been performing herculean tasks in the face of danger,” said Geoff Ballotti, president and CEO of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “This is one small way we can help make their next trip—whether it be to visit loved ones, friends, or simply to get away—as special as it deserves to be. They’ve earned it.”

Wyndham is continuing to update its policies worldwide by relaxing cancellation policies, extending current Wyndham Rewards Member Levels (status) for all members globally until the end of 2021 and delaying points expiration until September 30, 2020.
