Hyatt has extended the date for their waiver coverage on change and cancellation fees. This is great news for people that want to make changes due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Hyatt has pushed out their cancellation waivers on the previous policy. Now, it will apply for travel through June 30, 2020. Here is the update from Hyatt regarding this new policy extension.

Hyatt Pushes Out Their Waiver Dates

Here is the new policy extension from Hyatt:

Waiving change and cancellation fees through June 30, 2020

We are adjusting our policies to allow for flexibility regarding travel at this time by extending our cancellation fee waivers through June 30, 2020. See below for details:

  • Existing reservations for upcoming travel through June 30, 2020: All existing reservations (booked April 1 or before) for arrivals through June 30, 2020 can be changed or cancelled at no charge up to 24 hours before your scheduled arrival. This includes Advance Purchase Rate reservations.
  • New reservation for any future travel: With some very limited exceptions noted below, reservations booked between April 2, 2020 and June 30, 2020 – for any future arrival date – can be changed or cancelled at no charge up to 24 hours before your scheduled arrival. This includes Advance Purchase Rate reservations. The only exceptions are reservations booked after April 1, 2020 at Destination Residences and Special Events Rate reservations booked after April 1, 2020. The cancellation policies for a Special Event Rate will be noted in the rate’s Rate Rules section when booking.

Reservations can be changed or cancelled up to 24 hours before a scheduled arrival on or via the World of Hyatt app (subject to the exceptions noted above).

These policies apply to reservations made through Hyatt directly. Guests who booked via online travel agents or other third parties are advised to contact their booking provider for information on their policies and for assistance. These policies do not apply to convention and group business due to the contractual nature of these reservations. Guests with reservations at a Hyatt Residence Club property who did not book through Hyatt channels should contact Hyatt Residence Club.

This is good news from Hyatt for anyone with reservations up through June 30. It is also good news to see their commitment at staying ahead of this virus. This should make people feel more comfortable in booking future reservations with Hyatt knowing that Hyatt will move their dates on fee waivers when they feel it is important to do so.
