Airbnb has certainly disrupted the “accommodation sector” of the travel industry, leading some hotel chains to dabble with their own version of home rentals. Marriott is making a stronger effort than most with its Homes & Villas offering. You can earn points and pick up elite status credit when booking a Marriott home rental. You can also redeem points, although not usually at an attractive rate.
And, if you BOOK before October 21, 2021 and STAY before March 31, 2022, you can earn TRIPLE points on your Marriott Homes & Villas stays. The only catch is that you must stay for a minimum of 3 consecutive nights. The bonus 10 points per US dollar spent (pre-tax) means that you can lock in an extra rebate worth 6-8% by booking your next Marriott Homes & Villas stay now…
