In late 2019, Marriott extended Bonvoy Elite benefits and earned points for Employee, Friends, and Family rates (learn more here).

Now, the Travel Agent, Fam-Tastic and Plan-Tastic rate plans, available to travel agents and advisors, are eligible starting May 2, 2022.

Marriott previously listed Fam-Tastic fares, Plan-Tastic fares, and travel industry fares as ineligible for the Bonvoy program in the terms and conditions, but removed reference to these in the update. of May 18, 2022.

There are, however, still notes on Marriott’s website that these fares are not eligible under Bonvoy, but these are out of date.

We confirmed it with Marriott:

Effective May 2, Fam-Tastic, Plan-Tastic, and Travel Agent fares began earning Marriott Bonvoy points.

Fam-Tastic, Plan-Tastic and Travel Agent rates are only available to qualified travel counselors working for an active accredited intermediary (ARC, IATA, CLIA).

Conclusion

It makes sense for Marriott to have these rate plans eligible, as it helps travel agents and advisors learn about the benefits of the Bonvoy program and make more direct bookings.

You should remember that most bookings you make through independent agencies are eligible for Bonvoy as long as the agent does not obtain availability from specific room wholesalers.

And no, you cannot benefit from these rates simply by becoming an affiliate with an agency. You must pass qualifying tests and the agency must also book standard income reservations.
