Is there anything worse than finding out that you could have scored cashback on a hotel booking too late?

If you ever stay at Marriott hotels, book and pay for your hotel stay using the Curve credit card (that is free to apply for) and you will get between 1.5% (free card) to 3% (paid card) cashback across all Marriott hotel bookings in the UK.

Unfortunately, this deal only apples to UK hotels. Our luxury travel concierge offers free upgrades and breakfast on ALL JW Marriott hotel bookings worldwide.

What Is The Curve Card

The Curve Card is a free credit card which anyone can apply for and which uploads all your credit and debit cards into one single card which is accepted everywhere MasterCard® cards are.

Crucially for travellers, Curve only charges currency conversion fees at the MasterCard rate + 1%, (most credit and debit cards charge 3%) making it perfect for travel.

The Curve Card also offers rewards of between 1.5% to 5% cashback at the retailers listed below (including Marriott.co.uk). I always use my Curve Card in the food departent at M&S:

Plus, you will also get the rewards from your underlying Visa or MasterCard. In fact, if you regularly shop at any of these retailers, the Black Card (with a fee) is worth considering.

If you apply for the FREE card through the link below you will get £5 cashback (as will I). Apply for the Curve Card. My referral code, if it doesn’t track automatically, is NRJWI.
