Free HoteLux membership for World and World Elite Mastercard cardholders

Get a 3 or 12 month HoteLux membership through Mastercard and book luxury privileges rates with free breakfast, upgrades and more.

HoteLux has tied up with Mastercard to offer all World and World Elite members a complimentary HoteLux Elite membership, valid for 3 and 12 months respectively. 

Download HoteLux app

HoteLux members can browse and book luxury privileges rates like Virtuoso, Marriott STARS and Hyatt Prive instantly through the HoteLux app. 

How it works

To enjoy your free HoteLux elite membership, simply follow the steps below:

  1. Download the HoteLux app via this link
  2. Register for an account
  3. After registration, tap on your name in the top left corner, then “Join HoteLux Elite”. Then tap “Join HoteLux Elite” again at the bottom right

4. Select the option for World and World Elite Mastercard, enter the first six digits of your card, and you’re all set.

World Mastercard cardholders enjoy a 3-month membership, while World Elite Mastercard cardholders enjoy a 12-month membership and an additional 500 HoteLux welcome points (worth S$50). All registrations must take place before 14 July 2022. 

It’s not terribly difficult to get a World Mastercard. Practically every miles (or cashback) Mastercard I can think of falls into this tier, for example:

There are only a handful of World Elite cards in Singapore (Citi Prestige, UOB Lady’s Solitaire Metal Card), but it’s not terribly difficult to find the first six digits of a card either…

What benefits do HoteLux bookings enjoy?

HoteLux allows members to book what’s known as “luxury privileges rates” from programs such as:

  • Four Seasons Preferred Partner
  • Hilton Impresario
  • Hyatt Privé
  • Mandarin Oriental Fan Club
  • Marriott STARS & Luminous
  • Rosewood Elite
  • Shangri-la The Luxury Circle
  • The IHG Luxury & Lifestyle
  • The Peninsula PenClub
  • VITA by The Leading Hotels of the World

These bookings enjoy additional benefits such as:

  • Daily breakfast
  • Up to US$100 hotel dining or spa credit per stay
  • Room upgrade (subject to availability)
  • Early check-in & late check-out (subject to availability)
  • Welcome amenities

In other words, you receive all the perks of elite membership, without actually needing to have it.  There’s also third/fourth/fifth night free offers and bonus hotel credits from time to time, depending on the property. 

Luxury privilege rates price the same as the hotel’s best flexible rate, and are fully refundable up to 24-48 hours before check-in. They’re also eligible to earn hotel points and elite night credits, where applicable. 


To be clear, you don’t need a HoteLux membership to book these luxury privileges rates; there are many agents out there who offer the same service.

However, HoteLux does make the search and booking process more convenient through its app, and now there’s no reason why you can’t get a free membership.

Cool promo but i entered the info for my DBS women’s world, and was not accepted. Oh well.


try 5524 15. worked instantly for me, and 12 months


So I’ve already signed up for Hotelux, and now want to take advantage of this offer: can I retroactively add my Mastercard details to upgrade my membership, or do I need to set this up afresh?
