Hyatt Transfer Partners

Hyatt Points can be transferred to more than 25 different airline partners. Most of these transfers are 2.5 to 1, meaning that every 2,500 Hyatt Points you transfer will give you 1,000 airline miles. Transferring Hyatt Points to airline miles isn't the best way to earn miles with these programs, but it is an easy way to top off your account if you're a few miles short of your next redemption.

Hyatt Transfer Bonus

As with Marriott Bonvoy Points, Hyatt also gives you a bonus when transferring a large amount of points at once. For every 50,000 Hyatt Points you transfer, you'll receive 5,000 bonus miles with that airline partner. This comes out to be a total of 30,000 airline miles with most of Hyatt's transfer partners.

  • Air France-KLM
  • China Airlines
  • China Eastern Airlines
  • Delta Airlines
  • Korean Air

Transfer Partner Comparison

The tables below compares the transfer partners of Hyatt against Marriott and Chase.

Hyatt vs Marriott Transfer Partners

Hyatt and Marriott shares over 20 airline partners. Hyatt transfers to 3 airlines that Marriott does not, and those airlines are Lufthansa, Royal Brunei, and China Airlines. On the other hand, there are 16 partners that Marriott transfers to that Hyatt does not.

When it comes down to point transfers, basic World of Hyatt members earn 5 base points per $1 spent at Hyatt which is equal to 2 airline miles with most partners. Basic Marriott Bonvoy members earn 10 points per $1 spent at Marriott hotels which is equal to 3.3 airline miles. When it comes to maxing out earnings with elite status and using co-branded hotel credit cards, Marriott comes out ahead earning 7.83 airline miles per $1 spent (Titanium Status + Marriott Credit Card) while Hyatt loyalists will earn 4.2 airline miles per $1 spent (Hyatt Globalist + Hyatt Credit Card).

Hyatt vs Chase Transfer Partners

Chase Ultimate Rewards Points can be transferred directly to World of Hyatt at a 1:1 ratio. This means you can transfer points to Hyatt from Chase and then transfer your Hyatt points to airlines that aren't direct partners of Chase. There are over 20 airlines that Hyatt Points can be transferred to that Chase can not. So if you were short 1,000 miles in one of those 20 programs, you could transfer 2,500 Ultimate Rewards Points to Hyatt and then transfer those Hyatt Points to the airline for 1,000 miles.

When doing this, be aware of the value you're getting out of the transfer. Make sure that buying Hyatt Points or buying airline miles with that program doesn't make more sense.

Transferring Points To Hyatt

Chase Ultimate Rewards is the only program you can use to earn Hyatt Points via point transfers. If you frequently stay at Hyatt Hotels and you're looking to build your balance of Hyatt Points, you'll want to heavily consider picking up one or more of Chase's credit cards.

Summary

Hyatt Points are best redeemed for free nights at Hyatt brand hotels, but if you're short on airline miles then topping off your frequent flyer account could be worth it. You can also earn lots of Hyatt Points quickly, by using Chase Ultimate Rewards and cash back cards via credit card spend and sign up bonuses.

If you're looking for more ways to redeem your Hyatt Points and you want to know the cash value of your Hyatt Points, check out our Hyatt Points Value Calculator which calculate the average cash value of your points based on how you redeem them. It covers a bunch of redemption options including Hyatt, MGM, Miraval, Small Luxury Hotels of the World, and much more.

If you don't have the ability to transfer Hyatt Points to your account, you can always consider buying Hyatt Points. This is a more expensive approach, but it can still be useful if you need to top off your account. The best time to buy Hyatt Points is when they're on sale.
