– Members Can Use Points to Assist Micro-Finance Group,
With Matching Contribution from FRHI Hotels & Resorts –
5th December 2013 – Christmas is almost here, and for the second consecutive year, FRHI Hotels & Resorts (FRHI), the parent company of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, Raffles Hotels & Resorts and Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts, is offering members of the Famous Agents programme the chance to give back. FRHI is working with Kiva, a non-profit organisation that provides micro-loans to small entrepreneurs in developing countries, allowing them to grow their business and lift their families out of poverty. Agents who redeem 25 of their Famous Agents points for a Kiva card from 25th November 2013 to 6th January 2014 will have their contribution matched by the Famous Agents programme, increasing their Kiva card value to USD50 (*GBP31).
As businesspeople, travel agents know that without capital a business cannot grow. After redeeming their points for a Kiva card, agents can use the funds to provide micro-loans to small entrepreneurs such as weavers, potters, or farmers who have limited access to traditional banking systems. For more information about Kiva and how to redeem Famous Agents points, please visit frhi.com/promo/kiva2013.
Year-round, Famous Agents members earn one point per qualified room night at the company’s distinctive properties around the world. Members can redeem a minimum of 50 points for a standard room at a FRHI city-centre hotel, while 75 points can go towards a standard room at a resort within the portfolio. Also available for redemption are gift cards from major retailers. Additionally, members can redeem 15 Famous Agents Points for 500 Aeroplane Miles, MileagePlus Award Miles, Miles & More miles or Privilege Club Qmiles.
Agents enjoy a multitude of benefits by joining Famous Agents in addition to room nights and vouchers, including exclusive member-only rates at FRHI locations worldwide. The programme is easy to enroll in at frhi.com/famousagents, where travel professionals review a short lesson module and answer corresponding multiple-choice questions, only taking about 20 minutes. After submitting an online application form, agents receive a personalised membership number, which can be used immediately to track client reservations and earn points that can later be redeemed for free room nights. As points are earned for reservations in all room categories and wholesale bookings, Famous Agent members can quickly look forward to a vacation at any of FRHI’s unrivalled destinations. Staying up-to-date is made easy with bi-monthly e-newsletters containing the latest news and developments as well as client and member-only offers, which are sent directly to Famous Agents members.
