To convert or not to convert?
That is the question!
With the redesign of the Marriott Bonvoy program (category chart removal), upscale hotels are less accessible than before. However, you can find some good deals to book on the more common hotels, especially in larger cities. And don’t forget to maximize your Marriott Bonvoy points by staying five nights for the price of four.
On the Aeroplan side, following the redesign of the program (new travel zones, dynamic pricing on the Air Canada side), you can find great value for premium flights with partner airlines. Or optimizing eUpgrades for business travel on Air Canada using this technique.
Therefore, this promotion will be aimed at those who have Marriott Bonvoy points but find more interest in the Aeroplan program today.
But remember: a hotel room can be shared between several travellers, which is not the case for an airplane seat! With 60,000 Marriott Bonvoy points, you could get up to 12 nights at select hotels worldwide for an entire family! Or 2-3 nights in many hotels in North America.
While 30,000 Aeroplan points could get you one round-trip economy flight to select North American destinations.
