100,000+ travel experiences with Marriott and Placepass
Marriott International recently invested in travel activity price comparison platform Placepass, enabling travellers to choose from the website’s more than 100,000 travel experiences in 800 destinations when they book through the hotel group’s website or the Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) loyalty programme website.
These additional experiences will be offered in addition to Marriott’s existing activities available through its loyalty programmes, including SPG’s Moments and Marriott Rewards’ Experiences Marketplace. According to the hotel group, last year more than 6,000 travel experiences including music, sports, cuisine and culture were redeemed via its Experiences Marketplace.
Among the standout activities available are VIP visits to filming locations of British TV series Downton Abbey, wrestling with a retired sumo wrestler in Tokyo, and dune exploration by camel or 4WD vehicle in Dubai.
