Follow these steps to find a hotel that offers free cancellation options:
Step 1: Enter the relevant details for your stay to search for hotels.
Step 2: Filter your search results by selecting the “Free cancellation” option and choose a hotel.
Step 3: Select a room option that offers free cancellation and remember to check the cancellation policy before you book.
⁴Some hotels require you to cancel more than 24 hours before check-in. Please check the site for details.

No expiration for stamps or reward nights this year
We want to offer you the flexibility to make the most of your stamps and unused reward nights, so we’re extending stamps and reward night expiry dates until December 31, 2021.
Gold and Silver membership
Since travel opportunities have been limited because of the pandemic, we’re extending Silver and Gold members’ current membership status for another year. That’s a 24-month status extension in total (but only if you were a Silver or Gold member as of February 2020).
Getting to Gold or Silver
We’re giving you a head start to progress to Silver or Gold by counting all nights stayed during your last membership year, as well as this year, toward your progress. Please note that these nights stayed (and subsequent stamps collected) will only count toward your membership progress, and will not be reinstated toward your reward nights.
