Hyatt and Marriott now offer complimentary on-site COVID-19 tests at select properties for any guest scheduled to fly back to the United States. After the announcement that all returning international travelers must provide a negative COVID-19 test for re-entry into the U.S., Hyatt and Marriott stepped up to the plate.
Hyatt now will provide free COVID testing for up to two guests at all of their 19 resorts in Latin America, including Mexico, Costa Rica, the Caribbean, and South America. And if you happen to test positive? Don’t worry - Hyatt also provides a discounted Travel Delay Rate to those guests who do test positive.
Marriott joined in on the fun and is also providing complimentary COVID testing at a number of resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico for up to two guests. Guests must be staying three or more nights at the property. And if you do test positive, they’re offering 50% off on extended stay rates.
We expect to see more hotel brands follow suit in an effort to give travelers peace of mind if they are considering international travel right now (along with keeping them as safe and healthy as possible). If you’re traveling abroad and your hotel does not offer complimentary COVID tests, be sure to check with them ahead of time on where you can get a local test.
Whether you’re ready to travel now or in the future, we’ll be here ready to help. In the meantime, stay safe and we hope to see you soon!
