Preferred Hotels & Resorts has rolled out Loving Local, a global travel campaign that offers bonuses for both travellers and travel advisors alike.

More than 200 hotels and resorts across 21 regional markets worldwide are participating in this limited-time global campaign – valid for bookings made by 31 July, 2020 for stays of two nights or more through 31 December, 2020.

The Loving Local deal will offer guests the best available rate, daily breakfast options for two, and a stay credit ranging from US$25-$70 that can be used toward on-property expenditures, along with immediate fast track to Elite status in the brand’s I Prefer Hotel Rewards programme, which features a VIP amenity, next category room upgrade, 2,500 bonus points, and complimentary internet.

All Loving Local bookings will also unlock access to special benefits from partner brands including Avis (for car rentals in Asia), and Travel Curious (for those who would like curated tours of their chosen destination).

For travel advisors, Preferred Hotels & Resorts is also offering a 3% bonus on top of the standard 10% agency commission for Loving Local bookings made through the GDS or direct channels with a qualifying IATA/TIDS number.

“With all indicators showing that domestic travel will be an essential driver for economic recovery as travel restrictions are lifted at different times around the world, we created Loving Local to encourage interrupted travelers to once again embrace the virtues of community and explore destinations closer to home through our incredible independent hotels,” said Kristie Goshow, chief marketing officer for Preferred Hotels & Resorts.

In Asia Pacific, participating hotels include One Farrer Hotel in Singapore, The Siam in Bangkok, The Sanchaya on Indonesia's Bintan Island, The Leela Palace Udaipur, The Fullerton Hotel Sydney, and Bungaraya Island Resort in Sabah, among others.
