Homes & Villas by Marriott International has launched a double points promotion.
This is separate to the main ‘double points and double elite nights’ offer being run by the hotels. The ‘Homes & Villas’ offer runs for longer, but you will not receive double elite night credits – you need a hotel stay for that.
The standard Bonvoy earning rate with Homes & Villas is 5 points per $1. This is doubled to 10 points per $1 for all stays with a check-in date by 31st August.
Bookings must be made by 22nd February to quality. There is a 3 night minimum stay.
You can find full details on the Homes & Villas by Marriott International website here.
