Visa Infinite cardholders can enjoy free Langham 1865 Voyager Elite status simply by inputting the first 6 digits of their Visa Infinite card when registering for the 1865 program. Much like the Hilton promo from earlier this year, it appears that you can ‘grab’ any Visa Infinite 6 digit number of the Internet and register for this promotion.
Normally, Langham 1865 Voyager status requires 5 stays within 12 months to achieve the status, so of course this offer negates that and saves you the time an d money required. 1865 Voyager status provides member-exclusive benefits, including complimentary room upgrade (subject
to room availability), in-room broadband internet access, late
check-out till 6pm, personalised welcome amenities and many more. For more details please visit the 1865 website.
This offer appears to have been available since February although we just found out about thanks to Gary at View from the Wing and unlike the Hilton offer which quickly had the terms and conditions modified to reflect regional restrictions so that it was harder for ‘non-Visa Infinite’ people to register, this one does not appear to have many restrictions (yet!). For a list of some Visa Infinite issuer numbers see this Wikipedia page.
If this ends up working for you, you can always leverage it for (not as glamorous) Best Western Status with their Status Match No Catch offer
