I recently joined 'Priority Guest Rewards' as my wife and I are traveling to OS for a couple of weeks, and planned on staying at Rydges Hotels. After making the booking via a third party web site, (wotif), I contacted the hotel to have them add my PGR membership number. I was surprised to receive a response from the hotel stating that I would not receive any points or benefits as the booking was not made with them direct. Can anyone tell me if this policy also applies to bookings in Australia, or only OS. Nothing was mentioned about this when I joined PGR, although I admit it didn't read the terms and conditions, (who does). Has anyone had any similar experiences?
