MONTREAL — Aeroplan has launched HotelSavers, allowing its members to book 39 hotel brands across 11 chains worldwide, with up to 30 per cent fewer points.
HotelSavers offers the best member value for Aeroplan points outside flights with a simple rewards grid that makes it easy to know how many points are needed for stays in one of eight reward categories, ranging from economy to luxury from as few as 10,000 points per night for a standard room with no restrictions on room availability.
Participating properties include:
- Luxury: Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts, Taj Hotels, Small Luxury Hotels of the World, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Preferred Hotels & Resorts, Kimpton Hotels

- Midscale & Economy: Coast Hotels, Holiday Inn Hotels, Novotel Hotels & Resorts, Alt Hotels; Ibis and Ibis Styles
With HotelSavers, Aeroplan has added more than 7,000 points to hotels worldwide, giving members more ways to redeem their Aeroplan points.
All Aeroplan HotelSavers properties offer an option to book a refundable rate (taxes included), with some HotelSavers properties also offering non-refundable options for even fewer points. Additionally, members can redeem 50/50 (points plus cash) to pay for their stays.
“With HotelSavers, we’re now offering Aeroplan members great options to book hotels using their points – without compromising the excellent value they expect. HotelSavers is yet another way we’re investing to solidify Aeroplan as the go-to rewards choice for all Canadians who travel,” says Scott O’Leary, VP of Loyalty and Product at Air Canada.
“As one of the world’s largest hospitality companies, we have more than 6,000 hotels and 17 brands globally to meet the needs and budgets of all types of travellers. We are proud to now be able to offer Aeroplan members amazing value at many of our properties around the world through HotelSavers,” says Heather Balsley, SVP Global Loyalty and Partnerships, IHG Hotels & Resorts.
“We pioneered the boutique-hotel concept in Canada, and we are honoured to extend our famous hospitality to even more Aeroplan members as one of the select few hotel groups in the world in the HotelSavers network. As the only genuinely Canadian hotel group in our country, working with Canada’s flag carrier, Air Canada, is a perfect pairing,” says Christiane Germain, co-president of Germain Hôtels.
