Invite Friends, Save More with Hotel Engine’s Referral Program


Hotel Engine is more than just another hotel booking site. We are a community—of tech lovers, passionate travelers, and of course deal seekers. Our user community is why we are here and we are constantly striving to create a better hotel booking experience for our members. We also rely on our community to drive our growth into the future.

The Hotel Engine Referral Program

To grow our community, as well as reward our members for bringing more people into the fold, we now have a referral program. There are no complicated calculations and, unlike other referral programs, we don’t just give you more rewards points. We give you money you can immediately apply toward your own hotel bookings.

Each time you invite a friend to Hotel Engine, your friend gets a $25 credit. When your friend books their first hotel, you’ll get $25 in your account.

It’s as simple as that.

How to invite your friends to Hotel Engine

Inviting your friends to Hotel Engine is easy. Sign into your account and click the “Refer your friends” link. You will be given a unique link that you can email directly to your friends or share via various social networks, including Facebook and Twitter. You will also have the option to share the link with your Gmail contacts and LinkedIn profile. That’s it, that’s all.

For each friend that signs up and books a hotel, you will receive a $25 credit. The more friends you invite, the more you can earn.

How to redeem your credit

Inviting your friends is easy, but redeeming your credit is even easier. Your credits will automatically be applied to your account, so to take advantage of them all you have to do is book a hotel. You’ll even earn rewards points on the booking, which means that you’ll be saving money and earning more money at the same time.

No expiration dates

The best part of travel is relaxing and enjoying where you are, wherever you are. We subscribe to this philosophy wholeheartedly and don’t believe in putting undue stress on our members…or their friends. Thus, your referral credits will never expire. As long as your friends sign up immediately, their points will never expire, even if they don’t book a hotel for months. And whenever they book, even if it is months down the road, your account will still be credited.

The goal of our referral program is both to grow our community and reward our members. Learn more under the “Refer your friends” tab in your user account and on our FAQs page.
