A few weeks ago, TPG discovered a new way to save money on some of the most appealing luxury hotels around the globe: Noble Stay. We explained that it's an invite-only platform that offers the opportunity to buy certificates -- with a bonus value -- for future use at high-end resorts.

The prepaid certificates, known as Noble Certificates, act like gift cards but with a complimentary bonus of up to 50% more spending money. Noble refers to this as its Get More bonus.

For example, if a customer were to spend $1,000 toward a Noble Certificate for one of its partner luxury hotels offering a 50% bonus, they would get a total of $1,500 to spend directly at the hotel on the nightly rate or in-house services. That's an extra $500 for free.

Perhaps even more importantly, in a nod to our times, Noble Certificates do not require booking dates at the time of purchase and they are valid for at least three years. Some hotels offer up to five years before the certificates expire.

You also have up to two weeks to change your mind after purchase, thanks to a 14-day refund period.

This flexibility, combined with the complimentary up-to-50% bonus, makes Noble Certificates an excellent investment for future travel. These certificates could be especially appealing to people who have been vaccinated already or are about to get their shot(s). You'll likely feel much more confident booking travel plans when you know that you -- and others around you -- have been vaccinated.

Where can I stay using a Noble certificate?

Noble partners with more than 200 luxury hotels, including these three Caribbean properties:

That growing list of participating resorts includes spots in Mexico, including the St. Regis properties in Punta Mita and Mexico City, Las Alamandas Resort in Costalegre and The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun.

Some European options are the Bvlgari Hotel Milan, Hotel Arts Barcelona, Hotel Bristol Vienna, Six Senses Douro Valley and Gritti Palace of Venice.

In Asia, you could stay at Aman properties in India, Indonesia, Laos, Sri Lanka or Siem Reap. Want to check out the Raffles Maldives Meradhoo or Raffles Singapore? They both accept Noble Certificates.

How do the certificates work?

The most important thing to know about Noble Stay is that the site needs to vet you before you become a member. Membership is currently invite-only, but if you have a friend or family member that's a member, you can ask them for an invite code and then input it on Noble Stay's homepage.

If you don't have a code, you can click "Join the Waitlist" at the top right-hand corner of the homepage and enter your email.

Once you're set up as a member, you can search the site and choose properties from high-end brands such as Aman, Six Senses, Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons, Regent, St. Regis and Raffles.

You then purchase a certificate. After checkout, the hotel creates a credit under your name for the total value of your purchase, plus the complimentary bonus. Next, you'll receive an email that includes the certificate value, redemption instructions and a point of contact for redemption. You'll deal directly with the hotel to make your reservation.

The certificates may be spent on all hotel rates and packages and can be stacked with other promotions and offers that are publicly available on the hotel's official website.

The certificates may also be used on most in-house services, such as dining and spa services.

Because you redeem the certificate directly with the hotel, you should generally earn loyalty points and qualify for elite status benefits as you typically would if you'd booked with cash. However, Noble Stay recommends checking with the property first to confirm.

And, when you make your certificate purchase at Noble Stay's website, it will code as a travel purchase so make sure to use a credit card that rewards you for that type of spending.

For all of these reasons, Noble Stay could become a key part of your return to travel in 2021 and beyond.
