In light of travel uncertainty due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Marriott Bonvoy has announced that all elite statuses earned in 2019 have been extended through February 2022. In addition, the expiration of points will be halted until February 2021—points will only expire then if an account has been inactive for at least 24 months.

Marriott International president and CEO Arne M. Sorenson said: “As the days unfold, we will continue to monitor and evolve our program requirements as necessary.”

The hospitality group has also pushed back the expiration of Suite Night Awards by one year from December 31, 2020, to December 31, 2021. Members with an active Free Night Award (FNA) expiring in 2020 as part of their credit card benefit, annual choice benefit, promotions or travel package, will be able to use it through January 31, 2021.

Meanwhile, members in mainland China, Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR, and Taiwan will have their Free Night Awards extended for 12 months into 2021 from the date of expiration.

Members who have booked stays through June 30 this year can also enjoy change and cancellation fee waivers.

The loyalty program’s Giving Platform also encourages members to donate their Marriott Bonvoy points to relief organizations that are actively involved in COVID-19 responses around the world, such as the American Red Cross, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, UNICEF, and World Central Kitchen.
