TORONTO, Nov. 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Points (TSX:PTS) (Nasdaq:PCOM), the global leader in powering loyalty commerce, and Miles & More, Europe's leading frequent flyer and awards program with more than 300 partners, are expanding their partnership. Miles & More members can now redeem their award miles to pay for all or part of hotel bookings at over 200,000 hotels and resorts across the globe. Miles & More was the first loyalty program to integrate their web and mobile properties with the Points Travel service, offering their members the ability to earn, on average, 4,000 miles per night on hotel bookings. "We're committed to constantly finding new ways to bring value to our partners and their programs and Points Travel, the first hotel booking template to enable earning and redeeming in a single booking experience, is a key realization of that," said Rob MacLean, CEO of Points. "With this new functionality, Miles & More will deepen their member engagement by creating an even richer experience, and extend the value of their brand." "At Miles & More, we're always looking for new innovations that can provide greater value to our members," said Sven Helge Lampe, Associate Director Online Partnerships at Miles & More. "We look forward to growing our relationship with Points and leveraging Points Travel to offer our members more options to earn and redeem their award miles." Points Travel can be quickly integrated into any loyalty program's web and mobile properties to create a highly-converting, travel eCommerce offering that is program-branded and leverages the capabilities of the Points Loyalty Commerce Platform. Currently available in six languages, the user experience is simple and intuitive, taking members from consideration to purchase in just a few clicks, ultimately rewarding members with thousands of points or miles as well as being able to redeem miles for bookings at thousands of hotels around the world.
