Marriott International's travel program is expanding its Marriott Bonvoy Moments platform with two new categories. Using Marriott Bonvoy points accumulated from travel, everyday activities and purchases on Marriott Bonvoy co-branded credit cards, members now have access to two new categories on the platform: Throwbacks and Tailor Made.
Throwbacks are intended for travellers with a desire for experiences that evoke the memories of simpler times, while Tailor Made experiences are made for those who appreciate "craftsmanship and personalization," and gives members a special, made-to-order item to serve as a memory of their experience.
The packages that will be available at launch are below, with more Moments under these themes coming throughout 2022:
