PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - May 8, 2008) - Wyndham Worldwide (NYSE: WYN), one of the world's largest hospitality companies, is breathing new life into Wyndham's pioneering WOMEN ON THEIR WAY® program with the reprise of its "Jane Air" column on the Women on Their Way website, www.WomenOnTheirWay.com. As part of the re-launch, visitors can save 15% on their next hotel stay by booking through the program's website and using the promo code 1000005351.

Jane Air is a weekly column penned by veteran travel journalist, Laura Powell that will discuss the plights and nuances of being on the road and in the air as a career woman, dotted with tips and suggestions on various travel topics.

While once a single hotel chain program, Wyndham Worldwide expanded the program across all brands and businesses offering over 70,000 hotels, vacation rentals and resorts in 100 countries. In addition to the Jane Air column, www.WomenOnTheirWay.com also includes a leisure family travel column penned by Alyson R. Johnson of Wyndham Worldwide. The column discusses everything from traveling with children to recommended products that are useful to moms on the road.

"80% of all travel is planned and booked by women today," said Betsy O'Rourke, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Wyndham Worldwide. "Women on Their Way is about recognizing, supporting and celebrating women while providing a resource for them to research, plan and book all their travel, giving them ideas on how to make the most of their valuable time away from work and their everyday lives."

Women on Their Way is the hospitality industry's longest-running branded program entirely dedicated to female travelers. Since the program's launch in 1995, Wyndham has supported women travelers as they've emerged from a niche market to a formidable force, listening and responding to women's feedback, which has resulted in a better hotel experience for all travelers; including the addition of various amenities to hotel rooms such as coffee makers, full length mirrors and healthier room service menus.
