The popular Roomlia hotel savings application for iOS and Android is today launching an interesting new loyalty program. Basically, if you stay 7 nights, you will get a night free.
In order to get to that free night, the application will add up the amount you paid each night for your first 7 nights, and then it will credit you back the average. In most cases, this will obviously work out to an eight night free.
The cool parts about the program, which differentiate it from competitors, are that these are actual nights, not days, and the nights can be combined. You don’t need to stay 7 nights in a row to get the credit back toward an either night. You can stay for 3 nights during one trip, and 4 nights on another trip to get up to the 7.
The app is developed by a team made up of former Expedia developers, the application actually has some great deals that beat out some of the competition.
New hotels and supported cities are added each week, and users can book rooms up to 7 days in advance, for up to 5 nights at a time.
