How to break MORE than even

The worst thing one can do on a trip is spend money and get nothing back. No one likes total losses.

Its far too easy these days to stack the points up when spending. Credit cards have rebates in forms of cash back, points or membership / loyalty rewards and multi million rand travel insurances plus on-top of that spend you will earn miles and points from airline and hotel loyalty programmes. Traveloyalty is dedicated to this.

The least you want out of a hotel stay is to have some sort of a reward in the form of climbing up a elite status ladder to the next tier (unless you already there) and the satisfaction of earning points and bonus points as an elite member in order to maximise future free stays.

Traveloyalty offers this faster. Read more here

Breaking even on spend is great but..

..surpassing your spend by staying one night and being able to score 3-4 nights FREE is GREATER.

We offer this after your first paid night at IHG.

Below is an example of IHG Crown Plaza – booked at 39 Euro’s  / +- ZAR 560

Surprisingly low rates can be found often especially at Holiday Inn and Holiday inn Express. Crown Plazas this low are a steal.

Above: the bonus points shipped to my account for the stay.

Im out of pocket ZAR 560 for the stay (with platinum status I got a free upgrade to a corner suite value rate: Euro 320 / ZAR 4600) however:

I scored close to over 15 000 points total for the one night stay.

15 000 points gets me 3 free nights on pointbreaks, with the benefit of getting a suite upgrade worth ZAR 4600 per night.

so ZAR 560 spend =  ZAR13800 in suite stays (will be more at some more exclusive hotels.)
