Choice Hotels International, Inc. is helping travelers make their next getaway plan even more rewarding with a new promotion aimed at the serious vacation taker.

Through May 31, 2020, Choice Privileges members who book a rental home or condo with Vacation Rentals by Choice Hotels for five consecutive nights or more will receive a bonus of 13,000 Choice Privileges points – which may be used to redeem a free night at more than 5,000 Choice Hotels properties. To participate in the promotion, guests must book directly on, and use the code FREEHOTEL at checkout.

Each property selected to be a part of the Vacation Rentals portfolio is managed by a local, professional management company that provides on-call support and peace of mind for guests during their stay. Popular amenities in these vacation properties include full kitchens, spacious living areas, and private pools. Additionally, many Choice vacation rentals offer pet-friendly accommodations and convenient access to beaches, golf courses, ski slopes and more.
