Global Hotel Alliance (GHA) consists of more than 300 hotels under 14 different brands in 52 countries. The loyalty program of the GHA is called Discovery and it has three tiers (Gold/Platinum/Black).

Please note that GHA has discontinued this offer. Make sure that you sign up for our Blog email updates newsletter to be notified, when GHA again has a new Platinum sign up offer.

Now, you can sign up for the instant Platinum status that is valid until February, 2015. Note that the offer link has been discontinued on the promotional page, but I had it saved and it still works. This offer was targeted for MasterCard World Signia cardholders.

These Platinum benefits include all the gold ones + guaranteed room availability for up to 48 hours before, upgrade to next category, late check out until 3PM, and local amenity.

You won’t earn free night awards with GHA discovery, but they are offering local experiences instead. You earn these at the Platinum and Black level. You can search for various local experiences once you have signed up for the program using the link above.

GHA also offers 500 airline miles per stay. The list of airline partners can be found here. Currently the partners are Air France-KLM, ANA, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, China Eastern, Emirates, Etihad, Jet Airways, Lufthansa, Qatar, SAS, Singapore Airlines, South African, and Thai.

Conclusion

Seems that this GHA Discovery Platinum sign up promotion is likely to be retired soon. I just signed up and still got the Platinum status, however. This can come handy at time when staying at Anantara or Kempinski properties.

    The link works perfectly. The site seems to be a little slow at the moment- maybe all those new Platinum members slowing it down ;-)

    JJ I was also unable to get it to work. Was hoping I would since I was thinking of staying at a Kepinski for one of my next trips. Guess I will just stick with the Intercon.

    You don’t get a local discovery award right?

    • http://loyaltylobby.com/ John O.

      I haven’t checked if my account has it after signing up.

    • http://loyaltylobby.com/ John O.

      I think that is the question that we don’t have answer yet. Should know in about a week or so.

  • HBG

    Its worked for me now. Thanks John!

    Thanks a lot for this post! It worked for me! Do you think this status can be used to status match to any other programs?

    • http://loyaltylobby.com/ John O.

      You could likely try Priority Club or Club Carlson. You could use Le Club Accorhotels Platinum status for those two matches as well.

        Thanks, will try!

  • Flyer

    Not working again :( So sad.

  • Leo

    Does this work for existing Gold member? (e.g. Upgrade from Gold to Platinum?) Thanks!

    • http://loyaltylobby.com/ John O.

      You would be likely better off for just opening a new account and maybe merging them later.

      • Leo

        Thanks for your advise John! I will try to do that now.

  • Snackbarry

    tried it several times, but not working :-((

    Damn, once again one day too late, I’m getting the invalid brand code error, no new code?
