Hyatt has announced a collaboration with Lindblad Expeditions, a provider of expedition cruise and adventure travel activity, to offer World of Hyatt members unique and exclusive experiences that go beyond the hotel stay. Expected to launch later this year, this loyalty collaboration will include photography excursions, wildlife encounters, renowned naturalists and experts, and group travel outings.
As a part of this collaboration, World of Hyatt members will be able to earn five base points per $1 of eligible spend, not including incidentals, receive their standard elite tier bonus points on eligible spend and redeem points to use for complimentary expeditions.
In addition, members of all tiers will be rewarded with a $250 onboard credit to use during their expedition on spa services, alcoholic beverages, specific excursions or classes and souvenirs. They’ll also receive elite tier qualifying night credits for eligible nights on a Lindblad expedition.
World of Hyatt members can also experience Lindblad Expeditions through Hyatt’s FIND platform. Members can bid on two expeditions – five days wild California escape at Channel Islands National Park, plus accommodations and culinary experience at Andaz West Hollywood in California, or a photography excursion and education in New York City alongside Ralph Lee Hopkins, director of expedition photography, along with two-night accommodations at Andaz Wall Street in New York City.
According to Amy Weinberg, senior vice president, World of Hyatt said, “Through this new relationship with Lindblad Expeditions, World of Hyatt members will soon be able to enjoy even more personalized adventures and distinct, educational experiences – all while being specially rewarded with World of Hyatt loyalty benefits.”
