Sonesta Travel Pass 

Named “Best Hotel Rewards Program” by the U.S. News and World Report 2019-2020, Sonesta Travel pass is the guest rewards program from Sonesta Hotels, Resorts, and Cruises. Make each stay rewarding and earn free nights in as few as 15,000 rewards points, along with great perks, privileges and exclusive opportunities not available to just anyone.

How Does Sonesta Travel Pass Work? 

Points can be earned by members who spend money directly with Sonesta to book hotel stays at properties across the United States and in more than six countries. For every dollar a member spends at participating Sonesta properties, 10 points are credited to their account. Additional point-earning can be found when you combine spending with the power of the Sonesta World Mastercard® – every $1 spent with the card earns 1 point, and cardholders get 2x points per $1 on eligible airfare, car rentals, and dining purchases. Best of all, cardholders get 3x points per $1 spent on all eligible Sonesta purchases, which means that Travel Pass members can score up to 13x points (3x points for using your card, and 10x for spending on a qualified room rate) just for booking a room directly with Sonesta using their co-branded Mastercard® credit card.

Sonesta Travel Pass members can book with the Member Rate, and enjoy a minimum of 5% off at all locations worldwide. Members can book rooms without worrying about blackout dates, and receive complimentary upgraded internet access during every stay, as an exclusive member offer just for signing up. Additionally, Sonesta will happily match your status with any other hotel loyalty program to sweeten the deal for you. Points never expire.
