The Discovery Loyalty program is kicking off 2021 with a Double Nights credit offer. In other words, this promotion allows you to retain or attain a status level in half the nights you would normally require.
The promotion is running for the first three months of the year – through to 31 March 2021.

Discovery Hotels are an alliance of a number of smaller hotel chains. In Australia, hotels participating in the Discovery program include Event Hotels (Rydges, QT, and Atura), Oaks, Pan Pacific, and Park Royal hotels.
Discovery Loyalty Programme Levels
The Discovery Loyalty Programme has three levels – Gold, Platinum, and Black. The entry-level for the program is the Gold level. From there you can move up to Platinum, and onwards to Black.
Your status level is based on the number of qualifying nights you have each year. In the case of Platinum, you would normally need to stay 10 nights. If you have the Black level in your sights, you will normally require 30 nights.
The Double Night Credits allows you to attain status in half the time. For example, you could obtain Platinum after just 5 nights instead of 10 nights. Similarly, Black could be yours after just 15 nights, rather than the 30 nights it would normally require.
Of course, this would be if all your nights happened in the promotion period. It may be more likely to be some way toward the requirements already. In that case, you now only need half the nights you thought you did.
The main benefits for Platinum and Black members are that room upgrades, and late checkouts are made available.
Platinum Members are eligible for a one-level upgrade, and a 3 pm checkout. If you can get to Black Level, you will then be in line for a two-level upgrade and a 6 pm checkout.
There is another plus for Black members. If you earn over 30 nights in one year, the excess will be carried forward to the new year. This will give you a head start in the new year.
I’m expecting 2021 to be a good year for promotions. While travel is restricted, the programs will be out trying to get you to stay at their hotels.
