One of the best hotel deals each year is the Vancouver gift card promotion and given the state of the travel business these days it’s even more lucrative than usual this time.
Bookings through StayVancouverHotels.com for stays by September 15 earn gift cards for each night of the stay. The Vancouver Hotel Destination Association is offering:
- A $75, $100 or $125 Visa gift card for each of the first and second nights of your stay
- A $50 Visa gift card on each of the third, fourth, and fifth nights of a stay
There’s no minimum stay, they do not reward you for the sixth night and beyond of longer stays. And if you book back-to-back reservations to get more gift cards they say it’s not going to work.
Use promo code VISA when booking. Only a limited set of hotels are available. While hotels are prepaid reservations are refundable if cancelled up to 48 hours prior to scheduled check-in.
You’re permitted up to 3 bookings per person (though two spouses could make a total of six bookings). Visa gift cards are delivered at check-in, and though this is a promotion with Visa you can actually pay for your stay with your choice of card.
While the ban on non-essential travel from the U.S. to Canada is beginning to thaw it is currently in place until at least June 21. It could be extended. Flexibility is key. But if you’d like to escape the heat and spend time in a beautiful region, it’s worth checking out these hotel deals.
In the past hotels booked through this site have been at comparable pricing to what you might find elsewhere but that is not always the case. And for short stays at luxury hotel properties you migth do better with American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts. Since these are third party bookings you probably won’t earn hotel points or elite stay credit (or receive elite benefits on your stay) at chain hotels.
