Program Review

The Wyndham Rewards program caters to leisure and business travelers who visit popular destinations in the United States, Europe, the Caribbean, Asia and Mexico. As a Wyndham Rewards member, you'll earn points when you stay in any of the Wyndham Hotel Group's more than 7,000 properties across 14 distinctive brands, including Ramada and Dream Hotels. Wyndham Hotel Group's alliance with Amtrak and numerous air carriers — including American Airlines, United Airlines and Southwest Airlines — also allows you to use accumulated miles or points with affiliated carriers. You can earn points on car rentals, too, thanks to Wyndham's partnership with Avis, Alamo, Budget and National Car Rental. Additionally, you can earn rewards points on hotel and everyday purchases if you have the Wyndham Rewards Visa credit card.
