Hyatt said Monday that the discounts would apply to travel agents who book at a Hyatt website on behalf of loyalty members. The new policy applies to Hyatt properties in the U.S., Canada and Australia. Customers who book direct can save as much as 10% on room rates, Hyatt said. In addition to the lower rates, loyalty members who book direct can further benefit via more loyalty points and express checkout service. Starting later this year, they will be able to make on-demand requests via text message. Hyatt already offers free WiFi to all guests at all hotels, no matter how they booked.
