On top of that, for reservations made between March 13 and April 30, 2020, Marriott will allow reservations to be canceled for free up until 24 hours before arrival, even if it’s a pre-paid rate. This is clearly intended to incentivize future bookings.

Flexibility for Marriott Bonvoy members

Marriott Bonvoy has also announced some extensions for members, to provide greater flexibility:

  • The expiration of Bonvoy points is paused through August 31, 2020
  • The expiration of Suite Night Awards with an expiration of December 31, 2020, has been extended to December 31, 2021
  • Members who have a Free Night Award expiring in 2020 as part of a credit card benefit, annual choice benefit promotion, or travel package, will be able to use it through January 31, 2021

There is no word about Status Extension or any changes in night requirement for elite tiers as of now. However, Marriott did acknowledge that it would look into it.
