Preferred Hotels & Resorts launches global travel series

Preferred Hotels & Resorts has launched Loving Local, a global travel series designed to facilitate highly localised, luxury hotel experiences across 21 compelling regional markets as consumers prepare to rediscover destinations close to home.

This limited-time global campaign – valid for bookings made by July 31 2020 for stays of two nights or more through December 31, 2020 – entices travellers to staycation within their hometown or venture further into their surrounding region for the opportunity to enjoy authentic, memorable hospitality along with value-rich amenities at more than 200 participating hotels and resorts worldwide.

Travellers who book Loving Local will receive the best available rate, daily breakfast options for two, and a stay credit ranging from $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. Upon confirmation, all Loving Local bookings will also unlock access to special benefits from partner brands including Sixt (for car rentals in Europe), Avis (for car rentals in the Americas and Asia), and Travel Curious (for those who want curated tours of their chosen destination).

Preferred Hotels & Resorts is 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 travellers to once again embrace the virtues of community and explore destinations closer to home through our independent hotels,” said Kristie Goshow, chief marketing officer for Preferred Hotels & Resorts.
