There's good news for frequent travellers who want to elevate their earnings through their travel choices. This newly relaunched programme is "bigger, better and bolder", says the two iconic brands behind it: Emirates and Marriott International.

Your World Rewards, a partnership that originally launched in 2014, now gives flexibility and choice to registered members of both loyalty programmes - Marriott Bonvoy and Emirates Skywards. 

Members get to "enjoy the best in travel from take-off to check-out with rich benefits, personalized services and extensive access around the world".

This is how the joint loyalty rewards translates for travellers:

  • Marriott Bonvoy Gold Elite, Platinum Elite, Titanium Elite and Ambassador Elite members earn 3 Marriott Bonvoy points for every USD or its foreign equivalent spent on all eligible Emirates flights (in addition to Skywards Miles).
  • Marriott Bonvoy Platinum Elite, Titanium Elite and Ambassador Elite also enjoy in-airport benefits, including priority check-in and priority boarding.
  • Emirates Skywards Silver, Gold and Platinum members earn one Skywards Mile for every USD or its foreign equivalent spent (in addition to points) on all eligible stays at Marriott Bonvoy hotels and resorts worldwide.
  • Emirates Skywards Gold and Platinum members also enjoy additional benefits at Marriott Bonvoy hotels, including 4pm late checkout, access to the Elite check-in and complimentary in-room internet access.
