- Residents outside North America only earn $10 Travel Card for Best Western hotel stays in North America.
- $10 Travel Cards are combinable for single stay payment. If you have earned $30 in Travel Cards from 3 stays, you can redeem all three at one hotel for $30 hotel bill credit.
Can a guest redeem more than one of these promotional travel cards during their stay?
(Example – guest earned 3 $10 promotional travel cards during the promotion and wants to redeem all 3 (totaling $30) for their stay at one individual hotel).
Yes, assuming that all gift cards are still valid and not expired, they may redeem more than one gift card for their stay.
A major negative Best Western $10 Travel Card is it cannot be used online when booking prepaid rates booked online, generally the lowest priced Advance Purchase rates. Yet, you must make the booking online at BestWestern.com to be eligible for TravelCard redemption.
The FAQ do not address the question if you could apply the card to pay a hotel dining bill at check-out?
My $10 Travel Card saves me 50 cents on my next hotel stay
I booked the lowest non-prepaid rate I found this morning for a Best Western hotel I need in Poland. The Prepaid Rate was $9.50 less than the flexible rate I booked. I booked a higher flexible cancellation rate to use my $10 Travel Card earned from a hotel stay in Vienna in December.
Basically, my $10 TravelCard earned in Vienna is a waste for my hotel stay in Poland. I don’t know that I will want or need another Best Western hotel stay before my $10 Travel Card expires in early May. I’ll earn another $10 Travel Card from the Poland hotel to be used by July.
Or I can book the prepaid rate for Poland, save $9.50 today and have $20 Best Western credit for another hotel stay before May 7. And if my $20 discount hotel stay is by April 30, then I earn another $10 credit valid for Europe in July when I will need many hotel nights. $30 sounds like a great rebate on what might only be $150 to $200 in hotel rooms at highly competitive rates for the places I book.
Best Western Rewards $10 Travel Card on every stay sounds like a great deal, especially when paying $40 to $50 hotel room rates like I booked in Austria and Poland. However, the reality is that for my actual hotel stays, the $10 Travel Card is projected to come out at less than $1.00 overall savings, if I redeem my $10 Travel card on my next Best Western hotel stay.
I could be a hamster on the Best Western loyalty wheel going nowhere, or I may be getting the best deals around. All depends on my stay pattern and if I can actually find truly good redemption value for the $10 Best Western Travel Cards.
I like the sound of a $10 Travel Card on every Best Western hotel stay. I’d really like the promotion if it were possible to redeem the e-TravelCard credit online when booking advance purchase prepaid reservations at BestWestern.com.
In my quest for knowledge, I might run up a $10+ tab at the Best Western restaurant/bar in Poland and see if my $10 Travel Card bails me out when staying on an advance purchase prepaid rate.
