On 31st March, Global Hotel Alliance dropped all of its airline partnerships except for Lufthansa Miles & More.
As I wrote in this article last month, Global Hotel Alliance is currently focussed on rolling out its own loyalty scheme, GHA Discovery. As part of this, they appear to want to persuade more people to join by removing the alternative option of taking a handful of airline miles instead.
The Avios earning rate used to be 500 points per stay, although occasional promotions lifted that to 1,000 Avios.
Kempinski is the biggest name on the list of GHA members who you might be using. We also profiled the Corinthia Hotel in London recently. Readers in Ireland may also be regular users of The Doyle Collection properties.
The full list of members, none of whom will now issue Avios, are:
- Art Series
- Individual Collection
- Per AQUUM
- QT Hotels
