Bookable from 2pm-ish: new list of 5,000 point per night IHG PointBreaks (inc HI T5!)

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Just a reminder that, as I originally wrote on Saturday, the latest batch of IHG Rewards Club (the Holiday Inn, HI Express, Crowne Plaza, InterContinental etc group) PointBreaks redemptions will be open for booking this afternoon.  It is usually about 2pm.

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 this afternoon, saving up 30,000 points per redemption 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 today 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.


Under the new PointBreaks rule, 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 would 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 of 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

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 is handy anyway 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. Too bad I already booked my ex-DE trips to HKG starting somewhere other than HAM. If this had come out earlier I might have gotten to know the HIEx too well…

  2. Concerto says:

    Would the Holiday Inn Cagliari not be a potentially good option for September or October, once the worst of the Summer heat is over? There are a few offbeat places in the US that are going to be useful for me this time.

  3. Damien says:

    Is it possible to book 2 rooms on the same day with point breaks?

  4. James says:

    Anyone got the rates to load correctly yet?

    • Jovan says:


    • Jim C says:

      Yes. But they are only available up to 31 July 2015 i.e. the next 5 nights. Not very useful?
      The list also seems to be different (at least in Europe) to that intimated in this article?

      • Nigel says:

        That will be the old list then 🙂

        Clear your cache in the browser.

        Or if you have a specific hotel in Mind go direct to its booking page.

        • Are you seeing the new rates then? Just went to the booking page for a hotel that ought to be included, in a new browser (on which I hadn’t visited, and still got the old rate.

      • Jovan says:

        That is the old list [available until 31st July].

  5. Cleared the cache (several times) and still have a list that doesn’t resemble the one that is listed on the site…also the points requirement for the current list (which may not be the updated one) requires the full points. Perhaps all the hotels haven’t been loaded yet…which seems strange for a global hotel chain like IHG that they can’t “switch on” at a precise time!

    Will keep checking!

    • Jovan says:

      Nothing strange for IHG – their IT is not renown for being the best…

  6. James says:

    The post references today but then mentions Tuesday…..are we ahead of ourselves!

  7. Ricky says:

    Holiday Inn West Kelowna coming up as 15,000 for all of Sept. WIll check again later this evening.

  8. Danksy says:

    Not managed to see or book anything as yet 🙁

  9. Jovan says:

    Per FT: IHG Rewards Club tweeted “The list should go live at sometime shortly after noon EDT.”

  10. Rob P CapeCam says:

    I have stayed at the T5 Holiday Inn, which is just on the outskirts of the village of Poyle / Colnebrook, the village has quite a good old historic pub in it. The hotel is not great. It is actually a refurbished BA crew hotel that was operated by Arora Hotel exclusively for BA crew. The refurb seems primarily to have been in the public areas. It certainly did not include new room air conditioning, or heating, and it took 3 room changes to get a room that was warm. Staff try hard though. Rooms are all of one standard, so dont count on any room upgrades as PP member, even if like me you are Spire level. Parking can be an issue. the secure parking at the hotel was £20 a night from memory, and the streets around the hotel can fill up with airport staff’s cars, who then use the shuttle bus to go to work.

    • Nigel says:

      Secure Parking is £10. though the underground parking is very small.
      There is more parking around the back of the hotel which has no barriers…
      No ugrades due to all rooms being standard.
      OK for a 1 nighter.
      Eat at the Italian about 50 yards down the road.
      Bus stop right outside the hotel can work for you to T5 (£2.20) or the Tfl bus 80-though it’s not free.

  11. Rob P CapeCam says:

    Holiday Inn Lodz in Poland is a good hotel – New Buid City Centre. Interesting city for a weekend break, with Ryanair out of Stansted or East Midlands
