IHG and Melia launch January hotel room sales

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

Until Monday, IHG is running a sale covering the UK, Ireland and Germany.

There are some genuine discounts here, and I have rebooked a stay for next week to prove it!  You need to book by 15th January for stays until 15th April.

Most Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo and Staybridge Suites hotels in these three countries are included.  The discount is calculated as 35% off the Best Available Rate.  Rooms are non-refundable.

If you are not already a member of IHG Rewards Club, you will need to sign up for free during the booking process.

You can find full details, and book, here.
