BETHESDA, Md. — Marriott International has released a re-designed version of its Marriott Bonvoy mobile app, which boasts enhanced customization, new booking options and tailored ways to earn and redeem points.
As the centrepiece of the company’s mobile-first mindset, the updated Marriott Bonvoy app is designed to make it easier for guests to choose a contactless option for check-in and check-out, access mobile keys and request services and amenities via chat and mobile requests.
“The enhanced Marriott Bonvoy Mobile app is a must-have travel companion. It simplifies the travel-planning process; allows for the most frictionless experience before and during your stay; and gets smarter the more you interact with it,” says Leigh Zarelli, SVP Digital, Marriott International. “Through tailored, displayed offers, members can learn how to earn hundreds of thousands of points just by booking stays or going about their daily lives, grocery shopping, ordering takeout or buying items for their home.”
The updated app features new shopping and booking options, including Homes & Villas by Marriott International home rentals, Work Anywhere with Marriott Bonvoy day, stay-and-play passes and Marriott Bonvoy Tours & Activities. Members can also capitalize on points promotions, including tailored Marriott Bonvoy American Express and Chase limited-time offers, as well as access to points promotions with Eat Around Town and Hertz.
The app also offers increased functionality for non-members, allowing them to search and book stays with greater ease.
The app is available in seven languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Korean and Chinese. Four additional languages will be added later this year, including Italian (April), Russian (May), Portuguese (June) and Arabic (August). The improved app experience launches first on Apple’s iOS operating system, which accounts for most Marriott Bonvoy app users, followed the Android operating system later this year.
