Online restaurant reservations platform OpenTable is now allowing users in the US to redeem its OpenTable Dining Points for discounts at hotels booked through search engine KAYAK.
The scheme will allow OpenTable customers to save between $20 and $200 on their stay at more than 400,000 participating hotels.
OpenTable chief technology officer Joseph Essas said: “This will be the first of several additional ways that OpenTable users will be able to redeem their Dining Points.
“We’re looking forward to rolling out more options in the near future to further enhance the Dining Rewards programme.”
Costumers earn OpenTable Dining Points by making and attending reservations at participating restaurants. The points can be redeemed for discounts at more than 20,000 participating restaurants on the platform.
The hotel rewards are only available to US customers that have at least 2,000 points in their account.
KAYAK CEO Steve Hafner said: “OpenTable diners are avid travellers, so we are excited to offer a Dining Reward that will help them save on their next trip.
“KAYAK and OpenTable are both Booking Holdings’ brands and creating shared value for our respective users, diners that love to travel and travellers that need to eat, is a priority.”
Diners can check their points on their OpenTable profile and redeem them at opentable.kayak.com.
Founded in 1998, OpenTable has a network of more than 40,000 restaurants worldwide. Headquartered in San Francisco, the company has a presence in multiple countries, including Australia, India, Japan, the UK and Mexico.
