New IHG PointBreaks list of 160 x 5,000 point hotels (inc HI T5!), book on Monday

Yesterday, IHG Rewards Club (the Holiday Inn, HI Express, Crowne Plaza, InterContinental etc group) released a “preview” of the new list of PointBreaks redemptions.

These rooms are a fantastic deal.

All of the 160 hotels below will be available for just 5,000 IHG Rewards Club points per night from Monday, saving up 30,000 points per night in some cases.

PointBreaks availability is very limited so book ASAP if you are interested, as soon as bookings open up on Monday. Bookings are refundable as with a standard reward reservation so there is nothing to lose.  IHG works on US time so I would not expect the offer to be available until mid-afternoon in the UK.

You can book via the IHG PointBreaks page here or via the standard booking page hereIf the PointBreaks page has not yet been updated, it does not necessarily mean that the special deals below will not already be bookable – do a search on the hotel you want to check.

You will be able to book these hotels for dates up to October 31st.

Rotterdam cube houses

You allowed a maximum of two bookings per individual hotel. Each booking can be for as many nights as you want.

Remember that if you attempt to amend your booking later by dropping a night or two the whole booking will reprice at the full rate.

Looking at the European properties, the highlights seem to be:

Holiday Inn Terminal 5 at Heathrow (shuttle bus required, it is not at Terminal 5!)

Holiday Inn Express Hamburg City Centre, purely because I like Hamburg

Holiday Inn Express Rotterdam Central Station, because whether or not you like Rotterdam – and the museums are good – you are plugged into the cheap and quick Dutch rail network for trips to The Hague, Amsterdam etc.  The photo above is from Rotterdam.

Holiday Inn Express Lisbon – Oeiras, because it is a good Winter destination spot.  The hotel is on a business park but claims to be walkable to a station and, anyway, a car would be useful for visiting Sintra, Cascais, Estoril etc.

Thanks to John at Loyalty Lobby for breaking out the list into countries and states – the list provided by IHG is only broken out by continent!

  1. Adam W says:

    “Tuesday” in the third sentence should read “Monday” to remain consistent with the title and second sentence.

  2. Adam W says:

    Wow – just 9 properties across 3 continents! That is pretty dire – although ironically 1 of them fits in perfectly with an upcoming stay that I need to make.

  3. pauldb says:

    Uruguay the 51st State?!

  4. Concerto says:

    What is the first day you can book for? I think the list is quite good this time, relatively speaking. I was hoping for something in Dubai, especially as the hot summer months are low season.

  5. Possibly timing, but the list above bears no resemblance to the list in the IHG web site.

  6. Rob, have you been to Hamburg in December? If so how is it? I’m looking for a nice Xmas market destination.

  7. Moonman says:

    Clutching at straws, but does anyone know any tricks for getting points breaks outside of the stated dates. I’m going to be in Mendoza in the middle of November.

    • Can’t be done. Any date changes get repriced.

      For Mendoza, you should be staying at the Park Hyatt or Sheraton anyhow. Much more central and still low category hotels if you have some points with Hyatt or Starwood…

  8. Darlington isn’t too bad apart from the food in the evening – the McDonalds next door is better! Strange layout with the bathrooms as well – the showers have seats and the sink is in the bedroom rather than the bathroom.

    Burnley is ok if you can get a refurbed room on the car park side. They charge extra for the refurbed rooms so I’m guessing you won’t get one of these on points.

    • I’ve stayed at the Burnley one a few times, and usually placed on the car park side although i didn’t notice it was a refurb, paid the lowest rate available. Once i stayed on the motorway side, very noisy.

      • Not all of them have been refurbed – only about half the rooms have the newer dark wood finish.

        The car park side is much quieter, the other side is that noisy it feels like you are sitting on the central reservation of the M65. Should have been clearer with that sorry!

  9. Froggitt says:

    Some poor Yank’s gonna be upset……….booking London Dartford……expecting a view of Tower Bridge, getting a view of Queen Elizabeth II Bridge.

  10. The_Real_A says:

    I found myself at Kettering last time it was on points break. Huge room, great breakfast, nice bean to cup coffee, friendly staff and well looked after… Completely surpassed my expectations.

  11. John probably deliberately stuck Uruguay into the United States to yet again catch out people who copy his work, with or without giving credit.

  12. Johnny says:

    Does anyone know, is it possible to book 2 pointsbreak at the same hotel on the same nights. I understand I will need to make 2 bookings as I need 2 rooms for 2 days for Heathrow T5. I got 10,000 points but sounds daft, tempted to buy another 10,000 points for US£125 as it would be cheaper than paying the current nightly rate of £82.45 (average) total £164.90

    • You can book two rooms for the same dates, I’ve done it before and never had an issue.

      Rather than buying the points it will be cheaper to do points & cash then cancel as thats only $70 which will be roughly £65-£70 depending on the current exchange rate.

      • Johnny says:

        Thanks. If i use the cash and points and then cancel trick, does the points get added back to my account immediately or very soon after. Keen to make the pointsbreak booking as soon as it is available on monday.

        • Dave R says:

          Yes, usually its immediate.

          • Definitely returned immediately and much cheaper than buying them.

            Enjoy your PBs :)

          • Sorry, meant add that it would be advisable to be checking all the time from early afternoon on Monday for availability being release. I’d imagine that Heathrow will be popular with people the world over due to the location and will probably go very quickly in comparison to Burnley, Darlington, Telford and Kettering.

        • Immediately

          • Johnny says:

            Thanks for your advice. I booked a room with cash and points, then cancelled so got my 20,000 points i wanted. First booking at heathrow t5 of 2 nights went ok. Second booking, no availability on the second night!. So thinking quickly i booked the first night with 5,000 points which leaves me to ponder what to do with the second night. I could pay £92ish or use 19000 avios points for the second night. Oh well i got a bargain.

  13. Anyone know when this is starting?? Been refreshing for hours now…!
