What are Hyatt Travel Agent Rates?

Like other major hotel brands and travel providers, Hyatt Hotels is known for offering preferred lower rates to travel agents, either for the agents themselves or for them to book on behalf of their clients.

Hyatt For Travel Agents does more than just offer a discount, however. In addition to a discount of up to 50%, Hyatt offers travel tools and resources and pays 10% commission to approved travel agencies for all of these individual travel bookings in the US, Canada, Hawaii and the Caribbean:

  • Corporate rates
  • Rack rates
  • Weekend rates
  • Packages rates
  • Group rates

Commission isn’t paid on award bookings, as expected, but there’s occasionally higher commission amounts for special offer bookings on the Promo Offers page. Other offers there can include further discounted properties or agent incentives, with current promos including:

Resort program offers on the Hyatt travel agent site can include a free night for an agent when booking multiple nights for a client or special touches such as the ability to request a complimentary amenity to be placed in a client’s room:

How do I use Hyatt Travel Agent Rates?

You can directly access the site here or simply follow the link for Travel Agents from the Hyatt website:

You need to register with Hyatt For Travel Agents if you want to access the special rates and exclusive benefits. If you’re already a Hyatt Gold Passport member, you can sign up for your Hyatt travel agent profile here. Not yet a Gold Passport member? Sign up here instead.

To register for an account, you’ll need your IATA or TIDS number, and you’re likely to also need this as your ID at check-in for any of your discounted personal stays, too.

What else do I need to know about Hyatt Travel Agent Rates?

There doesn’t seem to be a public way to check the rates before booking, so we can’t compare to show you example savings. Nevertheless, Travel Industry Discounts states that Hyatt Travel Agent rates can be anywhere from 10% to 50% off the rack rate, with leisure hotels typically offering a 30% discount.

With the current Jamaica Grand Opening Special limited-time offer on the site, travel agents can save 50% at the new Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall or Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall, so it can certainly pay to be a member.

If you’re a travel professional, it seems that you can benefit in several ways by booking on Hyatt For Travel Agents, but always compare rates on the main Hyatt site before booking, just in case.
