Vancouver: Free Prepaid Mastercard for Stays until March 2024 = Hotels with up to 49% Discount

Vancouver, Kanada

Vancouver on Canada‘s west coast is always worth a trip! Unfortunately, the city is no longer a dark horse – and so the hotels are extremely expensive, especially in summer. If you want to save money, visit the city in the off-season.

A deal by the local hotel association makes such a visit even cheaper. Anyone staying in one of 40 selected hotels by the end of March 2024 will receive a prepaid Mastercard worth up to CA$250 (~€171). You can then use this card to pay your room bill. In this way, you can book hotels in the city up to 49% cheaper than through other sites.

You can book easily using the following link. Make sure that the Mastercard is really mentioned:

Apparently, a booking via the portal is considered a direct booking at the hotel. So it should be possible to use the usual status benefits at Hilton, IHG, … and earn points.

Use the Mastercard to Pay the Hotel Bill

With the Mastercard, you can of course go on a shopping tour and pay for your souvenirs, and restaurant visits, …. However, it is much easier to simply use the card to pay the hotel bill.

The fact that this works was also confirmed to us by email. According to a report by the Canadian blog Prince of Travel, employees often suggest this themselves:

These gift cards will be delivered upon check-in. In my experience, the check-in staff will often ask whether you’d simply like to skip the physical gift card itself and simply use the amount to offset against your room charge, so you can think of the gift card as essentially a straight-up discount against the nightly rate.
