IHG Rewards Club (the Holiday Inn, HI Express, Crowne Plaza, InterContinental etc group) published the new list of PointBreaks redemptions last night.
These hotels can be booked for stays until 30th April.
These hotels are now bookable via ihg.com. Popular hotels will use up their allocation of reduced price rooms quickly, so book now if you are interested. As with all IHG Rewards Club reward nights, you can cancel without penalty at any point and get your points back.
PointBreaks is changing …..
Historically all PointBreaks rooms cost a flat 5,000 IHG Rewards Club points per night.
This was a great deal, except for the teeny tiny fact that the selection of hotels had been getting progressively worse for the last couple of years. If you were looking for a good deal in a major tourist centre then you were going to be disappointed – although it was handy if you wanted a weekend break in Doncaster.
This has now changed.
The 200 hotels on the list below are priced at between 5,000 and 15,000 IHG Rewards Club points per night.
Looking at the list, the majority of HfP readers will be better off. You won’t be saving quite as many points as before but you WILL be able to book hotels in places where you are likely to want to visit. We are talking about good quality hotels in Helsinki, Kiev, Newark, Belgrade, Rome, Calgary, Kuala Lumpur, Berlin and (the edge of) London.
If you want a weekend break closer to home, the Crowne Plaza Five Lakes Resort near Colchester is worth a look.
The Holiday Inn Express London Wandsworth is virtually Central London, although the location leaves a LOT to be desired. It is opposite the municipal tip for a start! It is also nowhere near a tube station although a mainline station is only a couple of minutes away (across a monstrous road).
PointBreaks availability is very limited so book ASAP if you are interested.
You will be able to book these hotels for dates up to 30th April.
If you are short of points, you can currently buy them with a bonus of up to 75% via this link.
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 may reprice at the full rate.
