Every stay for me will be or already cancelled ,I’m at 32 nights already if the trend continue I will not be able to be a titanium next year ,do you think Marriott should extend their status for 2 years ? It will be a very appreciated
Hope so. Similar situation. Canceled two of my four Bonvoy credit cards yesterday. Was looking for an excuse.
As Bob Marley said "Don't worry, (earning your Titanium Bonvoy Status, in a big scheme/picture of current environment means nothing), be Happy !
daniel21 IMO you may be a little premature in asking a question like this. Much is still unknown about the duration, morbidity rates, and other impacts of the Corvid-19 virus on our planet and global population. One thing is for sure, many people our very worried and scared. I would rather corporations focus their energies and efforts on customer and employee safety, cleaning standards, and how to quickly respond as we learn more each day. I know the Travel Industry is taking a big hit and will/has suffered tremendous losses (cruise ships, airlines, hotels, rental cars, restaurants, etc). Our world has changed on a global basis. Lets see how everything shakes out first, apply some compassion and selflessness, and take care of one another at this time of uncertainty. I'm sure the rest will take care of itself; including Titanium Status.
I think it is more likely that they will simply lower the requirements this year. I offer no prediction on what that lower level will be.
If they do decide to extend everyone's status for a year, it wouldn't make sense to announce that now. Better for Marriott if they just keep announcing that they are "looking at the issue," which will cause elites to book more room nights in hopes of hitting whatever requirements Marriott later chooses so they can requalify. If they announce now, then those who are already hesitant to travel will have less motivation to do so and be more apt to just stay home, further impacting Marriott's bottom line.
It's probably too early for them to make a decision on this just yet, but if they do decide to extend status for a year (even if they've already decided to do so), I wouldn't expect them to notify us till much later in the year.
Same here. Japan is serious. Both international and local business travel will be cancelled and not allowed to request new one. Even platinum is not possible this year.
