DBS & POSB cards offering free 3-month HoteLux membership

Enjoy an instant 3-month HoteLux Elite membership with DBS or POSB cards, upgradable to 12 months upon completing the first booking.

HoteLux has tied up with DBS and POSB to offer all cardholders a complimentary 3-month HoteLux Elite membership, upgradable to 12 months after completing a single booking.

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

🏨 Alternative HoteLux joining offers

HoteLux is also running the following joining offers:

  • OCBC VOYAGE cardholders enjoy a 12-month HoteLux Elite membership + US$50 in points
  • OCBC Premier Visa Infinite and OCBC Premier, PPC and BOS VOYAGE cardholders enjoy a 12-month HoteLux Elite Plus membership + US$50 in points
  • World Mastercard cardholders enjoy a 12-month HoteLux Elite membership + US$100 in points
  • World Elite Mastercard cardholders enjoy a 12-month HoteLux Elite Plus membership + US$200 in points

I’d recommend taking the Mastercard offer if you have a World or World Elite Mastercard, because it bumps you all the way to Elite Plus (for World Elite) with complimentary points. Just note that you’ll need a minimum of US$300 in points to redeem something, so you won’t be able to cash out right away.

Free HoteLux membership for DBS/POSB cardholders

Enjoy free breakfast and other privileges at Capella Bangkok and other luxury hotels

From now till 14 July 2023, DBS and POSB cardholders will enjoy a complimentary 3-month HoteLux Elite membership, which will be automatically extended to 12 months after the first completed stay. 

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 DBS cards under the “promotions” tab. If this option does not appear, you will need to update your app to the latest version

What benefits do HoteLux bookings enjoy?

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

  • Four Seasons Preferred Partner
  • Hilton Impresario
  • Hyatt Privé
  • Mandarin Oriental Fan Club
  • Marriott STARS & Luminous
  • Rosewood Elite
  • Shangri-La 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 for two
  • 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 3rd/4th/5th 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 follow the same cancellation policy (typically 24-48 hours before check-in, but this may vary depending on property and season).

For avoidance of doubt, luxury privilege rates are eligible to earn hotel points and elite night credits, where applicable. Be careful, however, because the HoteLux app displays both luxury privileges rates and regular rates- the latter do not enjoy additional benefits or perks. 

Luxury privileges rates will be tagged with “HoteLux Price” in the app. A pop-up warning will also appear if you select a rate that does not include HoteLux benefits.

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

However, HoteLux makes the search process a lot more convenient through its app, and you can book and cancel instantly. That alone is reason enough to try it, especially with all the ways to get a free membership.
