Bookable from 2pm: new list of 5,000 points per night IHG PointBreaks

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 Sunday, 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 190 hotels below will be available for just 5,000 IHG Rewards Club points per night from this afternoon, saving up 25,000 points per night in some cases.

IHG Rewards Club wide 2

PointBreaks availability is very limited so book ASAP if you are interested, as soon as bookings open up this afternoon. 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 here.  If 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 January 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.

Here are a few key properties I highlighted yesterday:

Crowne Plaza Heythrop Park near Chipping Norton.  This is meant to be a decent property for a weekend break in the country, with a pool.

Holiday Inn Express hotels near Birmingham (Star City) and near Manchester (Manchester East).  Some people may find it cheaper to move in there for a couple of months than continue to pay rent!

The Lille property may make an interesting base for a Eurostar weekend break

Bilbao sounds interesting but the hotel is by the airport which is not ideal.  The Berlin property also seems rather remote.

The InterContinental in Cairo is interesting but that is a challenging place to visit at the moment, to put it mildly.

The Holiday Inn Vilnius is back on the list and does seem to be in a good location although I imagine it could be rather chilly.

The Holiday Inn Resort Bali Benoa in Indonesia.  If I had nothing else to do, spending a couple of months there at 5,000 points per night would probably not be a huge hardship.  This is not an expensive resort to book for cash, however, so it is not a ‘bargain’ in that sense.

    Nice tip once again!

    1 night at CP Chipping Norton and 2 nights in Lille. Now I need to book the Eurostar with Avios.

    Thanks very much!

  • Anon says:

    Nice just booked a 5000 pts stay for a Sat eve for my Florida trip next month, would normally be >$100 a night..

  • ee says:

    Managed to get a weekend in January (Friday and Saturday nights) at CP Oxford. Site was live before 4pm for me.

  • howard says:

    bad luck for me…I tried for weekends……I got the booking ok…rewards available and clicked booked…..said congratulations you have the lowest possible booking etc…..but then I got an error message taking me back to the home page….I tried 4 times…I actually have screen shots of what happened……

  • Waribai says:

    Yes, I’ve got Heythrop Park for next week. They’ve probably never had so many bookings in a day!

  • Lisa says:

    Got one for next year. Anyone stayed there before and whether they honour Ambassador benefits on rewards stays?

    • Simmo says:

      Ambassador? – which property are you talking about?

      Ambassador is only for the Intercontinental Hotels (IHG would be, Silver, Gold, Plat, Spire)

      • Lisa says:

        Not strictly true, Crowne Plaza do acknowledge Ambassador in some properties. At CP Gatwick Gold Ambassador is worth more than Spire non-amb.

        I’ve also had upgrades in HI properties on the back of Ambassador, it’s only IC where the benefits are guaranteed. At others in the IHG it’s down to hotel discretion.

  • Waribai says:

    Just emailed Heythrop. Asked if we could get an upgrade based on Spire status. They wrote back quoting the price of suite rooms. I guess that’s a no 🙂

  • Travelbug says:

    Quite a few hotels have reverted back to standard rewards redemption rate now. CP Heythrop, HI Maidstone and IC Cairo.

    With regards to upgrade for Amb/Gold Member at non-IC hotel, you are at the mercy of the person checking you in, rather than Amb getting a better upgrade than Spire members. 🙂
