Norwegian Reward is free to join and now has 4.6 million members globally, adding 100,000 each month on average who receive exclusive discounts and offers with Norwegian. Reward members can flexibly spend CashPoints on any Norwegian flight including taxes in addition to checked baggage, seat reservation and fast-track for more seamless travel at a reduced cost.

Whether biking the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco or wanting to avoid the lines at the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, the largest website for travellers to book tours, excursions and tickets to tourist attractions, hosts a wealth of experiences at unmatched prices for holidaymakers.
To mark the new partnership, Norwegian and GetYouGuide is offering all passengers using Norwegian’s inflight Wi-Fi the opportunity to receive a 10% discount on any activity. Passengers who register interest for activity suggestions during their flight will receive an email upon arrival at their destination with options to book exciting discounted activities.
Norwegian Reward members will benefit from 10% discount on all GetYourGuide activities and double the amount of CashPoints for any activity booked by 6 October, 2016.
Brede Huser, Senior Vice President of Norwegian Reward said: “All of our members can now explore and earn CashPoints by doing tourist activities anywhere in the world. We are continuing to enhance the travel experiences of our members while providing more ways to make flying with Norwegian as affordable as possible. So whether you’re a holidaymaker or feeling curious in your hometown, this fantastic new partnership will help you build priceless memories while reducing the price tag of your next trip.”
Eugen Triebelhorn, Head of Business Development at GetYourGuide said: “We are very excited to work with Norwegian Reward, a true innovative leader in loyalty programmes. This partnership allows us to offer amazing local tours and activities to Norwegian Reward members at the most relevant moment of their journey, making their travel experiences truly memorable."
Members can also earn rewards on all Norwegian flights which can be used to boost CashPoints, gain free seat reservation, free fast-track or free baggage for a year.
The popular loyalty programme was awarded the “Best up-and-coming Award”at the 2016 Freddie Awards - the most prestigious member-generated awards in the travel loyalty industry.
