Club CarlsonSM, the global rewards program from Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group announced it is the first hotel rewards program to offer TSA Precheck® as a redemption option. TSA PreCheck provides expedited security screenings to travelers at airports in the U.S. Beginning July 1, 2016 Club Carlson members will be able to redeem 65,000 points to receive an authorization code which can be used towards the $85 application fee for five years of hassle-free security screenings with TSA Precheck.
“It is exciting to be the first hotel rewards program to offer TSA PreCheck as a redemption option. As one of the most rewarding hotel loyalty programs, we pride ourselves on offering new and unique ways to redeem points,” said Alissa Montbriand, vice president, Global Integrated Marketing Communications, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group. “This enhancement is also timely as summer travel ramps up and security lines at airports increase.”
TSA Precheck members traveling through airport security checkpoints do not need to remove their shoes, light jacket or belt, and can leave laptops and liquids in their carry-on bags.
“Partnerships of this nature allow more travelers to experience the benefits of TSA Precheck while reducing checkpoint wait times,” said John Sammon, Chief Marketing Officer TSA.
