New feature makes it easier for loyalty members to book their dream vacation at more than 7,500 properties
ROCKVILLE, Md., Jan. 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH) is making travel even more rewarding for its Choice Privileges and Radisson Rewards Americas members. Beginning today, travelers can now exchange points between the two loyalty programs at a rate of two Radisson Rewards Americas points per one Choice Privileges point. Whether travelers are planning out leisure or business trips for the year ahead, or looking to book trips with spring break approaching, this option gives people more flexibility to earn and redeem points for award nights.
“This program update, along with our recently expanded portfolio of more than 7,500 locations around the world in top and unique destinations, gives Choice and Radisson Hotels Americas guests more rewards options than ever before,” said Robert McDowell, chief commercial officer, Choice Hotels. “We offer the right hotel, at the right price, no matter where our guests find themselves. Allowing our 66 million combined loyalty members to seamlessly exchange points is a testament to how we continue evolving our programs to create better value for both customers and owners.”
Choice Hotels offers status matching with Radisson Hotels Americas following the company’s acquisition of Radisson Hotels Americas last year. Now, with the expanded option to exchange points between programs, travelers can reap the benefits of both loyalty programs even more easily, including:
- Redeeming points at more than 7,500 properties across a diverse set of 22 brands in 46 countries and territories. Award nights start at 6,000 Choice Privileges Points or 12,000 Radisson Rewards Americas points.

To exchange points, guests need to be members of both Choice Privileges and Radisson Rewards Americas, which are free to join. Members can log into their account on either ChoiceHotels.com or RadissonHotelsAmericas.com and follow the prompts to exchange points between accounts.
