What is PPG?
PESTANA PRIORITY GUEST is the loyalty programme for Pestana Hotel Group Customers which includes the Pestana Hotels & Resorts, Pousadas de Portugal, Pestana Collection Hotels and Pestana CR7 brands. This programme allows points to be earned for each stay or meal at participating hotels.
Those points may later be used for free stays at Pestana brands on any day of the year. Programme members will therefore have access to free stays at all the Hotels and Pousadas specified
here . Membership of the loyalty programme also provides discounts on Accommodation and in Bars, Restaurants, Magic Spas and several of the Group’s partners.
What are the programme options and benefits?
The programme has five levels: PPG SILVER, basic level, accessible for free by all Customers; PPG GOLD, after reaching 20,000 points in 2 years or after making 10 bookings in 1 year, with additional benefits, such as VIP treatment; PPG PLATINUM after reaching 50,000 points in 2 years or 15 bookings within 1 year, with access to even more discounts and benefits than the previous step; PPG DIAMOND with top benefits and advantages obtained through direct purchases; PPG CORPORATE under agreements with partner companies. All reservations must be made through the direct Pestana channels (website, Hotel, Pousada or Contact Centre) to be entitled to discount privileges.
CARD | Is there any cost associated with the card?
SILVER, GOLD, PLATINUM and CORPORATE cards are free and have no annual fee. The DIAMOND card is paid for only once at the time of purchase.
