Hotel booking site Kaligo.com to transform rewards landscape

Singapore, November 12th, 2014 – A radically different hotel booking site has launched in Asia Pacific today, rewarding travellers with an incredible volume of airline miles or points to redeem for free flights, upgrades and other lifestyle treats.

Kaligo.com customers can earn up to 10,000 points or miles per night with their favourite carriers by choosing from 300,000 boutique and chain properties, and at rates comparable to other online travel sites.

“Asia is ripe for disruption with a more customer-centric hotel booking model,” said Kyle Armstrong, Kaligo Co-Founder and CEO. “We are simply putting travellers first and rewarding them for their loyalty. Price is of course vital, but earning a free flight or the VIP treatment of a business class seat? That has impact, especially in a region that aspires to travel more.”

It’s a message that is already resonating. Thousands of travellers are registering at Kaligo.com to accelerate their earning potential with early partners Asia Miles and JetPrivilege. AirAsia BIG has also joined Kaligo.com with a ‘jaw-dropping’ offer of up to 15,000 bonus points for their members’ first hotel booking on the site. That’s enough for a free flight from Kuala Lumpur to Hong Kong, Bali or Hanoi.

“The value we offer and personalised service are compelling points of difference within Asia Pacific’s crowded online travel space. We are investing in our customers and their satisfaction,” added Armstrong, whose conviction comes from years of related experience at American Express and is confirmed by Kaligo’s team of CRM, travel and loyalty technology specialists.

The strategy has attracted many more aviation and banking brands, now preparing to join Kaligo in 2015, from Asia Pacific and beyond. “To create loyalty, you have to exceed expectations,” he said. “At Kaligo, we aim to do just that.”
