The two offers are:

  • £100 back when you spend £400 at a selection of European luxury hotels
  • £50 back when you spend £200 at a selection of midmarket European hotels

The offers run to 31st December. Cumulative spending is OK.

If you have the Marriott Bonvoy American Express card, a far better version is available.

You will receive £100 cashback when you spend £250 at any of the luxury or midmarket European hotels included in the two earlier offers.

This is cleary a very generous offer, worth 40% back if you spend exactly £250.

As with the other offers, it ends on 31st December.
