Europe's Miles & More Is Newest TripRewards Airlines Partner

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - January 10, 2008) - Wyndham Hotel Group has signed a three-year agreement with Miles & More®, Europe's largest frequent flyer program, to allow TripRewards® members to choose that program's miles as their preferred currency.

As part of the agreement, Miles & More members can earn 500 miles per stay at any Wyndham® or Ramada® hotel in Germany, the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland and China.

Miles & More is Europe's largest frequent flyer program, serving Lufthansa Airlines, Austrian Airlines, SWISS, LOT Polish Airlines and several other European-based airlines.

It is anticipated that TripRewards members will be able to begin earning Miles & More credits during the first quarter of 2008.
