For those that don't know how certificates work.

Seven night and five night certificates

1. Marriott certificates can be used for any reservation that can be booked with points. To search for reward availability simply go to marriott.com and check the box to search "using points".

Marriott hotels are divided into categories. (Cheapest being category one) below is a list of all the category 1-4 hotels  http://www.marriott.com/hotel-search/Category1.hotels.Category2.Category3.Category4.Category5/


2. A 5/7 night certificates must be used for 5/7 consecutive nights. The reservation cannot be split up.

3. In order to hold the room you need a credit card. Your card will be kept for incidentals and you won't be charged for the room.

4. Certificates can be gifted BUT the room needs to be booked under the account holders name and you will be added a secondary guest.

5. Gold or plat benefits depend heavily on the hotel. At check in you may or may not get an upgrade.

I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

How does this work, does the certificate owner make the reservation for the buyers name? What difference does it make for the buyer which status the seller has? And is QP the typical payment method here?

The reservation shows up as on the seller's account, with the buyer as an additional guest. YMMV whether buyer gets benefits that seller would have been entitled to.

Hello everyone. I plan to go on vacation at Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa. Does it need the certification holder to do CI?  Or it is the same as in North America that just adding the additional guest? Thank you.
