Qatar Airways partners with independent hotel scheme
Voila Hotel Rewards, a hotel loyalty program for independent hotels, has partnered with Qatar Airways Privilege Club frequent flyer programme.
Voila Rewards members will now also be able to exchange their Volia points for award flights via Qatar Airways’ loyalty program Privilege Club.
Gabi Kool, senior VP and MD of Volia Hotel Rewards, said: “This partnership continues to enhance the attractiveness of Volia Hotel Rewards in the markets we operate in and supports the participating independent hotels and hotel groups in competing more effectively and profitably against the large global hotel chains.”
Volia members exchanging their Voila points to Qmiles before January 31 next year will be eligible for a prize draw with the winner getting seven free nights in any Volia hotel worldwide.
The hotel chain says it is continuing to add many new hotels around the world to its existing portfolio of nearly 250+ hotels in over 120 cities. New hotels in Brazil, United States (New York) and Thailand will be added “very soon”.
The Voila program unites a network of more than 230 four- and five-star independent hotels and luxury brands. The program first launched in 2008 and is aimed at travelers who like to stay in up-market independent properties.
Voila’s co-branded loyalty programs support travelers who frequent Swissbel Hotels and Resorts, Kayumanis, Husa Hotels, Coral Hotels & Resorts, Hoteles Lucerna, Continental Hotels Group, and Great Hotels Organisation.
