Outrigger Hotels & Resorts Joins TripRewards(R) Loyalty Program

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Cendant Hotel Group today announced that Outrigger Hotels & Resorts has joined the company’s TripRewards loyalty program as an earning and redemption partner.

Outrigger Hotels & Resorts is the second non-Cendant hotel brand to participate in the TripRewards program. Members can earn and redeem points for free stays at participating Outrigger locations in Hawaii.

Jill Noblett, Cendant Hotel Group vice president of loyalty and direct marketing, said the addition of Outrigger Hotels & Resorts as an earning and redemption partner adds significant value to TripRewards. “We continue to enhance TripRewards to the benefit of members, who now can earn and redeem points in all fifty states, including Hawaii.”

Featuring points-earning opportunities with more than 6,000 hotels and 46 partners as well as 140-plus point-redemption options, TripRewards is the world’s largest loyalty program, based on the number of participating hotels.

The program’s “open earn” structure allows members faster access to point earning by staying in Cendant-franchised hotels, renting Avis(R) and Budget(R) rental cars and purchasing everyday products and services from earning partners.

Likewise, TripRewards members can redeem their points for either hotel stays — with no blackout dates — or partner rewards including airline tickets, resort vacations, electronics, home appliances, sporting goods, movie and theme park tickets and gift certificates from 46 retailers and restaurants.

TripRewards members may elect to earn TripRewards points or airline miles or rail points for their hotel stays at Cendant-franchised hotels. A hassle- free online system allows members to check points and redeem for rewards 24 hours a day.

Consumers can enroll at triprewards.com or by visiting their local Super 8(R), Days Inn(R), Ramada(R), Travelodge(R), Howard Johnson(R), Knights Inn(R), Wingate Inn(R) or AmeriHost Inn(R) hotel or by calling toll-free, (800) FOR-TRIP — (800) 367-8747.
