Hotel discounts for Airline staff

Hotel discounts for Airline staff

One of the greatest parts of working in the travel industry is the discounts.  How many times have you ever asked,

“Excuse me, do I get a discount at your hotel?”

File this post for your next travel adventure. Listed are the discount codes for major U.S. brand hotels!






When we plan each adventure, the first thing we do is check what is the best rate we can get with each U.S. brand hotel.  Being in the travel industry, you can sometimes get greatly discounted rates.  Knowing what to look for could save you big bucks!

Keep in mind, not all brands offer discounts on all properties.  You’ll need to be flexible and a bit of homework to get the best rates.

Make sure you review all the terms, cancellation policy and rate details before you book!

What is the rate code:
Getting a discount on Marriott properties is very easy.  If you have an account, sign in.  On the right side, you will see “Corporate/promotional code”.  Enter, TVL.

Does this rate earn points and qualifying nights:
It’s been hit or miss, with more miss.  Using this rate will almost always get you a discount, however, often most properties will NOT honor the rate for earning points.  So you’ll need to make the decision what’s more important.

Getting a discount at the Hilton Properties requires you to go to a website.  For the link, click here. Others have reported success entering code AL on the Hilton main website.

Does this rate earn points and qualifying nights:
We’ve never had luck getting points on these Hilton rates.  In fact, it’s rare that we could get a discount at a Hilton property we wanted to stay at.  However, some discounted rate properties are near airports which could be useful.



What is the rate code:
SPG has a direct link for industry employees.  The link is buggy.  Just punch in the city and or date hit search.  Don’t put in anything else until you are on the next page.  You will then see the AIRL code for the rate.  For the link, click here.

Does this rate earn points and qualifying nights:
According to the phone agent, they do honor points and night status with the rate.   However, it’s been a while since we’ve used this rate, so use caution if you are wanting points and nights credit.

What is the rate code:
When looking for Hyatt properties you will need a discount code.  Visit, then enter code TIRT under the Special Offer Code.

Does this rate earn points and qualifying nights:
We haven’t spent much time at any Hyatt properties.  We did have luck with the one in New York, however, they did NOT award the points for this rate.

If you prefer staying at IHG properties like Holiday Inn, Crown Plaza and Intercontinental Hotels then simply click on their airline staff rates webpage.

Does this rate earn points and qualifying nights:
We haven’t stayed at one of the IHG properties with this rate, however, we’d be interested to hear from those that have.  Did it work?  Did you get points?




AmEx Fine Hotels & Resorts

If you have the AmEx Platinum card, it always doesn’t hurt to check the FH&R rate.  You won’t get a discount, but you will get a bunch of benefits!  Read our post on using our AmEx Platinum at Las Vegas here.



Here are a few of the properties that we’ve successfully booked with the rates above:

JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort and Spa
Courtyard Bangkok
Le Meridien Angkor

Have you used any of these codes?  What codes have you used that we didn’t list?
