Technology in the 21st century has broken the barriers of communication & made it possible to work away from office. Smartphones and internet powered devices allow uninterrupted connection to the outside world and employees can switch from business to leisure and vice versa as and when they please. Gone are the days when a business trip strictly meant business.

Just like frequent-flier programs, hotel loyalty clubs like Taj InnerCircle have expanded redemption options beyond free rooms and upgrades in recent years, giving members the chance to trade points for gift certificates, concerts and events, and even airline tickets. What’s more, Most of the major loyalty programs like TIC offers points that don’t expire so even infrequent travelers can at the very least, simply join a program and gradually accrue points.

Membership to Taj InnerCircle comes with several amazing benefits at every tier of the hotel loyalty program. All members of the program enjoy benefits like redemption of points through the program rewards catalogue & the newly introduced real time redemptions at the hotels. As earlier mentioned, there are no blackouts across room categories for room redemptions & no point expiry for active members. However, the best way to maximize your points is to earn status by reaching the Platinum tier.

 

The entry tier is Copper where you can earn a point every time you spend ₹125. As you ascend to Silver and Gold, the benefits really start to kick in. For instance, reaching the Gold tier comes with 2 Suite Upgrade Vouchers, 15% discount on room redemption rate & more! You’re also entitled to early check-ins and late checkouts as part of the Gold tier, subject to availability.

The Platinum tier is the real deal though. From earning a point every ₹125 spent in the copper tier, Platinum InnerCircle members earn points for every ₹60 spent, get 5 Suite Upgrade Vouchers & 20% discount on room redemption rate. Besides early check-ins and late checkouts, as a Platinum tier member of Taj InnerCircle, you can access Signature Platinum Experiences across the world. There is a dedicated 24 X 7 Platinum Desk for taking care of all your Taj requirements & 5 Mbps high speed internet access for 5 devices.

In addition to an incredible loyalty program, Taj offers hotel credits for spends on food & beverages, Business center, laundry, etc., at all Taj Hotels in India including Taj Safaris & all Taj International Hotels on bookings made till 15th October, 2016.
