Voting Now Open for Freddie Awards — Best Airline and Best Hotel Loyalty Programs

The Freddie Awards have a funny name, but they are actually a serious collective evaluation of the best airline and hotel loyalty programs. The companies involved seem to take them pretty seriously, and the actual award ceremony is a pretty fancy affair.

You can vote for your favorites at

First you will select your national flag (language), then your region of the world, then your votes for Airline Program of the Year, Hotel Program of the Year, and several other options. For each category, you are able to select up to three winners in rank order (1st, 2nd, 3rd).

It only takes about 3 minutes.

If you want to change your vote, click again on a program to de-select it.

For what it’s worth, the best airline program to me is Southwest (go Companion Pass!) and the best hotel program is IHG (go PointBreaks!).
