Marriott International’s loyalty programme has launched a global promotion which offers members bonus earning opportunities and a fast-track to elite status.

Members can register here before April 20, 2022, to earn 1,000 bonus points and an additional Elite Night Credit for each paid night of their stay during the period of February 8 until May 4, 2022.

This means that a new member could achieve Silver Elite status with a five-night stay and unlock benefits such as priority late checkout and 10 per cent bonus points on eligible future hotel stays.

There is no limit to the number of bonus points or bonus Elite Night Credits that members can earn during the 85-day period, but stays completed prior to registration are not included.

There are, however, some brands that are not taking part in the promotion. These include Homes and Villas by Marriott International, Marriott Executive Apartments and Marriott Vacation Club owner-occupied weeks. Additionally, hotels that do not currently participate in Marriott Bonvoy, such as Ritz-Carlton Reserve and Bvlgari, are excluded from the promotion.

Members must also book stays directly with Marriott on Marriott.com, Marriott Bonvoy Mobile app or through a reservations centre.
