Chase, Delta Air Lines and Hilton Honors will all offer travelers bonus points if they contribute to Lyft’s fund to give people rides to COVID-19 vaccine appointments. The bonuses range from 10x Ultimate Rewards points for purchases through Lyft’s Fund a Ride program, to 2,000 Hilton Honors points.

Travel brands are banding together to help Lyft get people to COVID-19 vaccine appoints, regardless of whether or not they can afford it. The rideshare company announced a partnership with Chase, Delta Air Lines and Hilton to offer donors to the Fund a Ride program extra points for their contribution.

Points Bonuses Offered for Delta SkyMiles, Hilton Honors and Ultimate Rewards

The bonuses travelers will receive are based on which program they sync with. For Chase customers with a Freedom, Ink or Sapphire card, flyers can earn 10x total points or cash back on purchases made through the Fund a Ride program. In addition, cardholders can also use the Pay Yourself Back option to use points to take a statement credit for Fund a Ride purchases.

At Delta, the first 15,000 flyers who have their SkyMiles account linked with Lyft and contribute at least $5 to the Fund A Ride program will get a bonus 250 miles. Those who would rather earn Hilton Honors rewards can pick up a bonus 2,000 points when they link their accounts with Lyft and contribute a minimum of $5. Hilton will also match member donations up to $50,000.

The Lyft Fund a Ride program seeks to connect underserved communities with transportation to COVID-19 vaccination appointments with free rides. Donations will go towards rides coordinated through a number of non-profit partners, including the National Asian Pacific Center on Aging, the NAACP, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the National Down Syndrome Society.

Vaccinations Hold Key to Re-Opening Travel Sector Worldwide

Multiple travel stakeholders saying herd immunity through vaccination is the key to re-opening the travel space once again. At the J.P. Morgan 2021 Industrials Conference, leaders from both Delta and JetBlue noted that as more people get vaccinated, their demand is increasing – resulting in more bookings and higher demand, and coming closer to closing the burn rate gap.
