Egencia, the business travel arm of Expedia, and Hyatt Hotels have entered into an agreement that will see Hyatt properties included in the Egencia Preferred Rate (EPR) programme.
Hotels participating in the EPR programme will offer advantages such as special rates and amenities to Egencia travellers.
“We are pleased to work with a rapidly growing global Travel Management Company like Egencia,” said Hyatt’s senior VP for revenue management, Gregg Cross.
“Business travellers are important to us and by working with Egencia we can cater to the needs of those travellers while also satisfying their companies’ business objectives with great value.”
He added: “This is an excellent opportunity for us to position ourselves as the preferred hotel for business travellers.”
The rollout of individual Hyatt properties into the EPR programme is anticipated to begin in early August 2014.
The EPR programme now totals over 100,000 hotels.
