Gold and Silver membership

As travel opportunities have been limited because of the pandemic, we're extending Silver and Gold members' current membership status for another year. That's a 24-month status extension in total (but only if you were a Silver or Gold member as of February 2020).

Check your Rewards membership status

Getting to Gold or Silver

We're giving you a head start to progress to Silver or Gold by counting all nights stayed in your last membership year, as well as this year, to count towards your progress. Please note that these nights stayed (and subsequent stamps collected) will count towards your membership progress only, and not reinstated towards your reward nights.
