Wyndham Hotels & Resorts announced they will be offering a complimentary gold membership upgrade in their Wyndham Rewards to all essential workers who are on the front lines of COVID-19. This is the launch of their #EverydayHeroes initiative.
The gold membership includes benefits like member-only discounts, dedicated member service line, preferred rooms, accelerated points earning and late checkout. This is eligible for, and not limited to, truck and delivery drivers, warehouse, construction, sanitation, grocery and healthcare workers.
During this critical time, medical professionals and other essential workers have had a hard time having to travel back and forth from their homes to their destination as they are working countless hours. This membership allows medical care professionals to enjoy a comfortable stay while giving them more time to rest vs. using that time to travel back and forth.
The upgrade must be requested by September 30, 2020 and is available until December 31, 2021. This also applies to all 20 Wyndham brands. The offer is available to new and existing reward members, essential workers can claim their upgrades by visiting www.wyndhamrewards.com/heroes
As mentioned by Travel Pulse,
“We’re humbled to honor such a deserving group of individuals: everyday people who have been performing herculean tasks in the face of danger,” said Geoff Ballotti, president and CEO of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “This is one small way we can help make their next trip—whether it be to visit loved ones, friends, or simply to get away—as special as it deserves to be. They’ve earned it.”
Aside from these heroic actions, Wyndham continues to update its policies in order to provide reward members increased travel flexibility, as stated by Travel Pulse. They are also encouraging members to donate their reward points to their preferred charitable partners.
A big THANK YOU to Wyndham Hotels and Resorts for making such a big contribution to essential workers working day in and out to save lives and lend a helping hand.
