Here's an interesting hotel deal for independent hotels around the world. Porter & Sail is a fairly new platform that sells hotel credits and they are offering 50% bonus credits at the moment. There are several hotels on the list, but do note that those hotels are independent hotels meaning they are not part of any big hotel chains such as Marriott, Hilton, etc. You won't be able to earn or redeem points. You can, however, earn points through credit card that you use to purchase the hotel credits.

    How Porter & Sail Hotel Credits Work

    The process is very simple. You buy hotel credits using a credit card or through PayPal. You then receive a digital voucher with redemption details via email. When you are ready to spend the credit, you simply call the hotel directly to redeem the credit. 

    Full Refund If Hotel Closes

    We all know about purchasing hotel gift cards for the most part. Gift cards don't expire. However, there's a risk involves hotel gift cards. If the hotel ends up shutting down, the gift cards may be invalidated. Whereas hotel credits that are sold by Porter & Sail, there is an expiration date based on the hotel. However, Porter & Sail promises to provide a full refund in the event that a specific independent hotel is closed before you use the credit prior to its expiration date.

    Is The Deal Worth It?

    It really depends on your traveling's lifestyle. Independent hotels that partner with Porter & Sail are quite great quality hotels. Taking Hotel Julian in Chicago for example, you pay $200 for a $300 hotel credit. I went to the hotel's website to get a quote for Fall travel. I was able to see one day in September for only $99/night. That means for $200, you can potentially stay at Hotel Julian in Chicago for 3 nights with a savings of $100.
