To achieve this, VOILÀ provides hotel- or group-branded solutions for our partner hotels, with VOILÀ acting as the supporting brand (similar to Star Alliance or OneWorld for frequent flyer programs).
VOILÀ’s global presence allows members to earn and redeem points across a wide variety of hotels and redemption partners in the VOILÀ global network. A selection of VOILÀ’s current redemption partners include airline programs such as Flying Blue (Air France / KLM), Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards, and US Airways Dividend Miles, retail partners such as Amazon.com, American Express, Multiplus Fidelidade, Smiles, iTunes, and Thanks Again, and charitable causes such as Kula, Worldreader.org, and Kiva.
From the consumer’s perspective, this means members can enjoy the rich experiences and extraordinary qualities independent hotels offer while earning points and receiving benefits typically tied to big chain loyalty programs. For more information, please visit:
