In an effort to combat Vancouver’s hotel off-season, beVancouver in partnership with American Express has brought back an exceptional deal. Receive between $50-$125 CAD off your first night stay at one of 37 hotels across Vancouver. Then receive $50 CAD off your stay for each additional night!
You’ll receive the credits in prepaid American Express gift cards upon check-in, which can be put towards your stay. This deal is yet another reason American Express is an essential card for Canadians looking to travel hack.
From Vancouver’s economy hotels to five star luxury, there’s an opportunity for everyone to use this deal, for stays between October 30th and December 31, 2017.
What You Need To Know About Saving On Your Next Vancouver Hotel Stay
A few considerations to note if you’re looking to take advantage of this deal:
- Because you’ll need to book this stay through beVancouver, you won’t receive points or member perks for your stay (if you have status with a program). If you’re planning on using this deal at a Fairmont property, you might want to consider the perks that the Fairmont President’s Club offers in combination with American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts. The benefits of booking with FHR along with your status may be more valuable than a gift card on a short stay
- All reservations are pre-paid, and is NON-transferable, and NON-refundable. Make sure your plans are confirmed, and consider booking with a credit card that offers trip cancellation insurance, such as The American Express Platinum Card.
- beVancouver offers a best rate guarantee, and lightning fast email responses, so be sure to check out some other online travel agencies to see if you can find the same room at a lower price. Filing a best rate guarantee claim is how Tyer saved 50% on a Premier Suite at The Four Seasons in Jakarta!
- You can choose to use the prepaid gift cards towards your stay, or anywhere American Express prepaid gift cards are accepted, but they must be redeemed within 3 months of receiving them.
- Separate consecutive bookings at the same hotel will not result in you receiving more than one $50-$125 prepaid gift card.
- A maximum of 3 bookings per person is enforced – all subsequent bookings will be converted into normal best available rate bookings
- Bookings can be made using VISA, MasterCard, or American Express
