“We applaud Marriott for including partner agents in its most recent campaign,” ASTA CEO Zane Kerby said in a statement. Marriott said it will not disclose the list of who, exactly, are the eligible travel agents, but starting April 11, a new rate will become available to them and rewards members who book direct, the company announced earlier this month. Members already get other perks, like free WiFi. Marriott's lowest rates won't be available through OTAs. ASTA was similarly pleased when Hilton Worldwide announced last month it would extend direct-booking perks to travel agents.
