Hyatt Gold Passport Platinum membership:
15% point bonus on each stay

The card, which has an annual fee of US$ 75, also offers:

- Visa concierge service and acceptance at millions of merchants in more than 200 countries
- Travel protection, including trip cancellation, lost luggage and trip delay.

John Wallis, global head of marketing and brand strategy, Hyatt Hotels Corporation, said, To further Hyatts mission of providing authentic hospitality, we have made significant enhancements and adjustments to our Hyatt Gold Passport loyalty program over the past two years to make it best-in-class. The Hyatt Card is another logical step in deepening relationships with our guests and welcoming new travelers into the fold.

Our objective, when working with Hyatt on this card, was to create a product that resonated with the Hyatt guest and provided a differentiated offering that aligned with Hyatt's brand, added Val Greer, general manager, Chase Card Services. Having the ability to simply and easily redeem rewards with no blackout dates or limits on available standard rooms, and no resort or internet fees, the card offers unparalleled opportunities to enjoy Hyatt properties worldwide.
