Hilton Honors announced a first-of-its-kind travel and hospitality partnership with rideshare leader Lyft. Created to reward the 89 million Hilton Honors loyalty members in their everyday lives, members will now be able to earn Hilton Honors Points when they ride with Lyft.
“Hilton Honors is always seeking out ways to connect with our members and the brands they love. Whether it is our partnership with Live Nation to curate one-of-a-kind music experiences or our partnership with American Express as the exclusive issuer of Hilton Honors credit cards, we’re continually offering avenues for members to get more out of the program.
We know ridesharing is important to our members and extends beyond getting to and from our hotels to a function they rely on nearly every day. It’s easy to see how the missions of Hilton Honors and Lyft came together so nicely. That intense focus on creating a better customer experience, prioritizing and pioneering innovation in travel and committing to leaving the world a better place than we found it by reducing our impact on the environment and increasing our commitment to our communities,” said Mark Weinstein, Hilton Honors.
“Most immediately, members will get more value. And more value means more Points towards free nights, more flexibility in spending and redeeming Points, and more options and access to exclusive experiences.
This partnership allows us to reward members for riding with Lyft every day, not just when they travel. Down the road, you will see us working on how members can redeem their Hilton Honors Points for Lyft credits. We look forward to unlocking new ways to create an even more effortless travel experience.”
“What excites me most about the future of travel is the increased opportunity and interest that organizations have to make a meaningful impact at scale on the communities they operate in. Through initiatives like our carbon offset program, Round Up and Donate, and City Works, we’ve been committed to improving lives through better transportation from day one. And with Hilton’s initiative to cut their environmental footprint in half by 2030, we’re excited to align ourselves with a hospitality leader that shares a similar vision of improving the areas we operate in. I hope to see other brands adopt a similar mindset where tech and travel can come together to provide the best user experience while also making a positive impact,” said David Baga, Lyft.
