Orbitz expands rewards program with addition of LoungeBuddy passes, travel reimbursement

Online travel agency Orbitz has announced it is giving members of Orbitz Rewards, its loyalty program, more ways to save throughout their trip, the company said.

Platinum members — those who have reached the program´s highest tier — can now choose between free TSA Precheck or LoungeBuddy passes and earn USD 50 back on everyday travel expenses.

Orbitz Rewards saved Platinum members nearly USD 300,000 via these benefits last year. Orbitz is also introducing a streamlined redemption process designed to help Platinum members maximize their benefits at Orbitz.com/rewards/choice.

Compared with other popular OTA rewards programs, Orbitz Rewards is the easiest to attain top-tier status. Stay just 12 room nights to reach Platinum, versus 15 nights or 30 nights to achieve similar status at other booking sites.

More than 8 million travelers are already enrolled in Orbitz Rewards in the US.

Orbitz is a leading travel provider where millions of customers are rewarded when they search for and book hotels, flights, car rentals, cruises, vacation packages and destination activities on Orbitz.com and Orbitz mobile apps.
