Orbitz.com recently announced that one million members have joined Orbitz Rewards -the travel site’s simple, fast, flexible and unique loyalty program officially launched in October that rewards travelers instantly for a variety of bookings and bonus promotions that quickly add up to meaningful hotel discounts.
Orbitz Rewards is free and easy to join with just one click to become a member.
“We are thrilled to have reached the milestone of having one million members join the Orbitz Rewards program,” said Chris Orton, president of Orbitz.com. “We designed Orbitz Rewards to be transparent and easy to use, and we’re delighted to see the strong consumer interest we’ve had in our free program since launch. Although it’s still early days, the program is working as planned. We’re seeing loyalty members booking more trips with us as well as more air customers now also booking hotels from us. The higher level of earn when booking a hotel through our mobile apps is also rewarding Orbitz Rewards members when they download and engage with our groundbreaking mobile apps for iPhone, iPad and Android.”
The Orbitz Rewards program lets members earn up to 5 percent on transactions at Orbitz Rewards hotels (5 percent when booking through the Orbitz apps for iPhone, iPad and Android or 3 percent earn across all other booking channels) and 1 percent on standalone flights and vacation packages. Unlike other travel loyalty programs, customers earn immediately and can redeem instantly. For example, an Orbitz Rewards member can book a flight and have Orbucks in their account within milliseconds to instantly use on the booking of an Orbitz Rewards hotel for that same trip or a future stay. There are no complicated points to calculate – one Orbuck equals one U.S. dollar on Orbitz.com.
