Marriott International has launched a new travel programme designed exclusively for small-to-medium-size businesses (SMBs) booking hotels in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

Marriott Bonvoy Business Ready is designed to help companies book travel easily, access preferential rates and earn Marriott Bonvoy points when the time is right for them to travel again.

“There is pent-up demand for business travel,” said Neal Jones, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Marriott International, EMEA. “People are keen to get back to meeting partners, suppliers and colleagues and connect face to face.

Marriott Bonvoy Business Ready was therefore a “great opportunity” for SMBs to book business travel, earn points and access great rates at Marriott’s EMEA portfolio of more than 950 hotels and 24 brands across 75 countries and territories,” he added.

Marriott Bonvoy Business Ready is a one-stop booking platform with benefits including: an eight per cent discount on standard rates, including breakfast, ​valid seven days a week; a Marriott Bonvoy sign-on bonus of 2,500 points for first paid stay (new members only); no pre-payment required; dedicated landing page and process; and access to company tracking and reporting suite/dashboard, EMEA group and catering promotions via Marriott Bonvoy Events ​and Marriott Bonvoy specific benefits such as mobile check-in/key, late check-out and Wi-Fi and room upgrades.

See for more information. Once registered, travel bookers receive an email welcoming them to the programme, along with a dedicated booking code.

Bookings can then be made via, desktop or mobile but do require the travellers to be members of the Marriott Bonvoy programme.
