The Best Hotel Rewards Program to Collect Points in 2019?

I’ve been using various hotel booking sites but this time I decided to sit down and do the research on which one has the best rewards program.

So this is how to collect points for the best benefits in 2019.

I went through so many sites, including both the most and less popular ones, and I must say that I was rather surprised by the results.

The program of my choice that won competition was “PointsMAX“.

Best Hotel Rewards Program

The “PointsMAX” hotel rewards program is operated by Agoda, a 2010 founded and reputable online travel agency, headquartered in Singapore.

While Agoda is a large and reliable hotel booking site, I would have expected the best program to be on one of the even biggest sites. But no.

Why PointsMAX?

This is no ordinary program for collecting points and miles, they’ve joined up with 46 travel and flight partners so you can use the points the way you like.

So that for example, you can join your hard earned hotel booking points and flight miles to a one single reward for bigger benefit.

So get that free flight sooner, with the help of Agoda bookings. They can be anything from accomodations, flights, airpot transfer or car rentals.

Other regular rewards programs want you to spend their points only on their services so that they get the benefit. Not with Agoda, nope.

How does PointsMAX work?

Just go to PointsMAX at Agoda.com, and select one of the 46 participating partners for use with your account. Book a hotel room, and you could earn as much as 6,000 points which you can add to the program of your choice.

It’s really simple. Just make sure that your membership ID and the account name are the same on both rewards programs.
