In October, Hyatt unveiled its new global loyalty program, World of Hyatt, which will launch on March 1, 2017. World of Hyatt is about building community and engaging with high-end travelers. A bold, modern and confident platform, the program’s three elite tiers – Discoverist, Explorist and Globalist – reflect the aspirations of the World of Hyatt community as they travel and expand their world. In the new program, members will receive more rewards as they advance through the three elite tiers based on Qualifying Nights or Base Points. The many guest-driven benefits for World of Hyatt members include: Base Points earned for dining and spa experiences, free night award for staying at five different Hyatt brands and confirmed suite upgrades at the time of booking for qualifying elite members. World of Hyatt will also go beyond a traditional loyalty program in offering a platform to celebrate members and broaden their global view. For example, World of Hyatt will honor the generosity of its members, celebrating the ways in which they use their points to make a difference in someone else’s life. The Hyatt Gold Passport program will remain in effect through February 28, 2017, at which time it will transition to World of Hyatt. Between now and then, members can continue to achieve and enjoy tier status in Hyatt Gold Passport and earn and redeem points as they always have. Qualifying activity beginning January 1, 2017 will also count toward earning status in World of Hyatt when the program launches on March 1, 2017. When World of Hyatt launches, members will continue to earn five Base Points for every eligible U.S. dollar spent. In addition, the hotels in each redemption category and the number of points required to redeem free night awards will remain unchanged.
