Low-cost airline Norwegian has signed an exclusive global partnership with Expedia Affiliate Network.
It means the airline’s customers can get access to exclusive rates at 300,000 hotels listed on Expedia’s accommodation website hotels.com, while also earning cost savings on their flights.
Customers will get accommodation suggestions from hotels.com when they receive Norwegian’s flight booking confirmation emails.
They can chose whether they want to pay for their hotel at the time of booking or on arrival.
The agreement, part of Expedia’s ‘Hotels.com for Partners’ product, sees Norwegian co-brand its hotel offering to ‘benefit from the strength of the Hotels.com brand’.
The 5 million global members of Norwegian’s loyalty programme, Norwegian Reward, can also now earn CashPoints when booking hotels, which can be used as full or partial payment for Norwegian flights.
Norwegian Reward members can earn 5% CashPoints on each booking.
The new partnership comes as Norwegian gears up for the launch of 10 new transatlantic routes from the UK and Ireland to three new destinations in the US this summer.
