Egencia and Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced that their affiliates have entered into a new multi-year agreement to include Hyatt properties around the world in the Egencia Preferred Rate (EPR) program.
Hotels participating in the EPR program will offer advantages such as special rates and/or amenities to Egencia travellers.
Egencia has successfully brought the technology heritage, relentless focus on user experience and innovative spirit of its parent company Expedia, Inc. into the enterprise. In 2013, Egencia launched its new app, Egencia TripNavigator, designed to improve the in-trip experience for business travellers. The app provides step-by-step navigation and offers integrated access to Egencia travel consultants. Today, 10,000 companies worldwide partner with Egencia to drive travel compliance and cost savings.
“Hyatt represents a valuable addition to our EPR program,” said Chris Vukelich, Egencia vice-president, supplier relations for the Americas. “The Hyatt portfolio of brands and locations are an ideal fit for the contemporary Egencia business traveller seeking modern convenience and value, and we look forward to working with them to offer innovative promotions that will help our clients travel better.”
With the addition of more than 500 Hyatt properties across 47 countries, the Egencia global EPR program now totals over 10,000 hotels.
The rollout of individual Hyatt properties into the EPR program is anticipated to begin in early August.
