A stay is defined as one or more consecutive nights at the same Best Western branded hotel.
  • Only one check-in/check-out permitted per stay. Limit one (1) Travel Card per household per claim for any stay and only one (1) Travel Card per household during any thirty (30) day period (lower rate will be honored regardless of eligibility of Travel Card due to limitations). 
  • The Travel Card will be issued in the form of a virtual card (an E-mail certificate or printout from the website) unless a physical plastic card is requested. 
  • Reservations booked within forty-eight (48) hours of the hotel’s earliest published check-in time on the arrival date of the claim are not eligible for the Program.

Additionally, the competing rate must be publicly viewable and bookable via the Internet at the time the claim is reviewed by a Best Western Customer Care Specialist. A viewable rate means that the general public can view the rate on the website. A bookable rate means that the rate is available and can be reserved online. 
  • Websites and online memberships or programs that require a password or login to view hotel rates and inventory are not eligible for the Program. This includes any memberships or programs in which membership is not automatic and 
    • (i) requires consumers to “opt-in” to become a member,

  • If redeemed internationally, the value of the $100 (USD) Travel Card will be determined by foreign exchange rates at the time of redemption. 
  • For a multiple night stay, the total cost for the stay will be evaluated in determining whether the competing rate is lower.
  • The difference between the rates when compared pursuant to these terms and conditions must be equal to or greater than $1.00 (USD). 
  • Best Western Rewards points or airline miles will be awarded based on the rate actually paid by the consumer at check-out. 
  • A consumer does not need to book a room on the competing website to take advantage of the Program. The consumer must only be able to prove the validity of the claim and then stay at the Best Western branded hotel. 
  • If, for any reason, the lower rate is not honored at the hotel, the consumer must call the Customer Care Department within thirty (30) days of the conclusion of the stay and provide the file tracking number for the claim.
