BOOK NOW: 108 new IHG PointBreaks hotels for just 5,000 to 15,000 points (some decent!)

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

IHG Rewards Club (the Holiday Inn, HI Express, Crowne Plaza, InterContinental etc group) has just published its new list of heavily discounted PointBreaks redemptions.

You can book these hotels for stays until 28th February.

These hotels are bookable NOW via  Popular hotels will use up their allocation of reduced price rooms quickly, so book soon if you are interested.  As with all IHG Rewards Club reward nights, you can cancel without penalty at any time and get your points back.

(EDIT: If you are reading this on Tuesday via our emails, some of the best deals may have gone.  If rooms are pricing up at the standard points rate for stays before 28th February, this is why.)

(EDIT 2:  I was having issues with some of the links if using Chrome, but Edge was fine. Very odd.  If you have issues try opening the page in a different browser.)

PointBreaks has changed …..

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 108 hotels on the list below are priced at between 5,000 and 15,000 IHG Rewards Club points per night.  In general the quality of hotels included has gone up since the 5,000 point cap was removed, although at the end of the day it always depends on how the list fits around your travel plans.

What are the highlights?

Not surprisingly the better deals are at the 15,000 points level.

  • Crowne Plaza Edinburgh Royal Terrace is clearly a good deal at 15,000 points
  • The Indigo in Antwerp would be an interesting weekend break option, as would the Indigo in Warsaw
  • I am stunned to see anything in the UAE available during peak holiday periods.  The Holiday Inn Dubai Festival City is brand new and the Crowne Plaza Yas Island in Abu Dhabi is very close to the beach and is on a golf course
  • The Holiday Inn Express London Newbury Park is at the very end of the Central Line but, if you want a cheap place for a London break, it will do the job for 10,000 points
  • With three hotels in Munich, you won’t be short of options for a Christmas Markets trip


PointBreaks availability is limited so book ASAP if you are interested.

You can book via the IHG PointBreaks page here or via the standard booking page here.

You are able to book these hotels for dates up to 28th February.

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.

  1. These two Japanese places (apart from Hiroshima) made me do a lot of googling as I never heard of them before. Now I have a new place on my bucket list for my next trip to Japan – Matsuyama.

    PS Warsaw Indigo hotel is a must – well located and the building/decor are amazing, stayed there with my partner in Aug 2017

    • Matsuyama (and Shikoku) is a nice play for your maybe third/forth trip to Japan. Not many tourists, nice hikes (the most important pilgrimage route is there), onsen, a little bit slow to navigate with public transport though.
      I have enjoyed it.

      • I have been four times to Japan already, but hopefully it will still be good for the fifth trip? 😉 thanks for insights, it looks exactly like a place my partner and I would like to visit

  2. How about that IC Medellin?
    I will be there in February and wonder if it is too far away, safe area, still suitable for a holiday, etc…
