You can earn Best Western Rewards points in many ways:
- With hotel stays
- With car rentals
With hotel stays
Best Western Rewards points’ earning depends of:
- your status
- the amount spent
So, as a basic member, you can earn 10 points per dollar.
Then, depending on your status, you’ll earn more points (10% more for Gold members to 50% more for Diamond Select members).
With car rentals
Most of the major car rental companies are partners with Best Western, so you can easily earn Best Western points for your car rental.
|Alamo||3 points for every dollar spent|
|Avis||1,000 points for each rental|
|Budget||1,000 points for each rental|
|National||3 points for every dollar spent|
|Sixt||1,000 points for each rental|
For free hotel nights
As with any hotel program, Best Western Rewards is designed so that points earned can be redeemed for stays at Best Western hotels.
The number of points to get a free hotel night depends on:
- the property
- the location
- the time of year
So it’s a variable cost schedule. However, the chart has 11 tiers,so a free hotel night costs between 8,000 points and 70,000 Best Western Rewards points.
