SILVER SPRING, Md. /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- What does it take to feed a family of four in today's economy? Just two separate stays at any Choice Hotels location in the Choice Privileges program. This summer, when travelers stay just two separate times with check-in from May 20 through August 5, 2010 at any participating Choice brand hotel, they'll receive enough Choice Privileges points to redeem for a $50 restaurant gift card.*
And this added value should come as a welcomed surprise for most travelers this year, as more than three quarters of U.S. active travelers who are planning to take at least one leisure trip by July of this year (56 percent) said they plan to spend less or the same amount on leisure travel services as they did last year, according to the February 2010 travelhorizons(TM) survey co-authored by Ypartnership and the U.S. Travel Association. As usual, getting more for your money seems to be as popular as ever among today's travelers.
"This offer is yet another way for our guests to enjoy great value when they stay at our hotels while also cashing in on their summer travel," said Greg Brown, vice president of loyalty and relationship marketing for Choice Hotels. "With this great new value, along with our free breakfast and free Wi-Fi at many of our hotels, we hope our guests will enjoy traveling even more this summer."
To qualify for the promotion, guests only need book their reservations at ChoiceHotels.com or through 800.4CHOICE. This offer is available across all 10 Choice hotel brands.
