“Members who do not have any stay activity within an 18-month consecutive period may be removed from the program, and all accrued points will be forfeited.”

So not only will you lose your points, but your entire account may be terminated, and your points forfeit. The only way to keep your points and account alive is to complete a stay at least once every 18 months.

Possible Solution

If your points are nearing expiry and you have no planned stays at any La Quinta properties or other earning/redemption plans you have a problem. However, a quick search reveals one possible solution. There are a few cases around of individuals reaching out to La Quinta on social media and via customer service about points about to expire and receiving 10 complimentary points from La Quinta to reset the expiration clock. This is something to bear in mind although there is no guarantee it would work every time, but it might be worth it as a last resort.
