Brussels, 12 April 2006 – Summer is the ideal time to visit Scandinavia, known as “the land of the midnight sun,” with long summer days, a moderate climate and many festivals and celebrations, and Radisson SAS Hotels & Resorts, the first class, full-service European hotel brand, and Park Inn, the international, mid-market hotel brand, are making it even better this year with the “Get More Scandinavia” program. “Get More Scandinavia,” the loyalty program specially created for vacationers at more than 42 Radisson SAS and 26 Park Inn hotels in Norway, Sweden and Denmark, is offering discounts off standard rates, free nights, complimentary breakfast and other special perks to members this summer.

Members of “Get More Scandinavia” will get one night free when they stay four nights in any of the Radisson SAS or Park Inn hotels in Norway, Sweden and/or Denmark from May 1 through August 31, 2006. While the stay credits must be earned in Scandinavia, the fifth or “free” night can be used any night of the week at any one of the more than 180 Radisson SAS and 70 Park Inn hotels in Europe, the Middle East and Africa between June 1 and August 31, 2006.
