FIVE DAYS ONLY, ENDS FRIDAY: Get 30% off UK & Ireland hotel bookings for IHG Rewards Club members

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

IHG has launched a “5 days only” flash sale exclusively for IHG Rewards Club members.

From today until Friday 1st February, IHG is offering 30% off UK and Ireland hotels for stays until the end of April 2019.

The so called Pay Day Sale includes brands such as Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Hotel Indigo, Crowne Plaza and Staybridge Suites.

You can book via a special link here.

(EDIT by Rob: having looked at two IHG hotels on Friday which I needed to book for the next few weeks, I can confirm that the prices offered in this sale are genuinely and noticeably lower than the cheapest price on offer last week.)

IHG flash sale

Over 300 hotels are included in this promotion.  The discount is billed as 30% off Best Flexible Rate but – as these rooms are non-refundable – it is more accurate to say that you are getting around 20% off the usual Advanced Purchase rate.

A few example discounts, as provided by IHG, are :

Holiday Inn Manchester City Centre from £80 (reduced from £110)

Holiday Inn Express Glasgow Theatreland from £65 per night (reduced from £89)

voco St Davids Cardiff from £72 per night (reduced from £139)

All of the above are for travel on 8th and 9th February.

IHG flash sale

If you are not an IHG Rewards Club member yet, you can sign up before making your booking and also benefit from the 30% off offer.

Rewards Nights. Faster.

This offer should work alongside the current generous ‘Reward Nights. Faster’ promotion.

All IHG Rewards Club members have been given different personalised targets.  You can find out your targets, and register, on the IHG website here.

IHG flash sale

Rob’s wife, for example, has:

10,000 bonus points for staying five nights

28,800 bonus points for staying at three different IHG brands

8,400 bonus points for two Holiday Inn stays

10,800 bonus points for 3 x 2-night weekend stays (Saturday plus another night)

6,600 bonus points for booking two ‘Bonus Point Packages’

….. which is not bad at all.  The bonus points promotion runs until 30th April so it matches the stay dates of the 30% off deal.

The special booking page for the UK & Ireland ‘30% off’ deal is here.  You need to book by Friday.

  1. Slightly Off topic but something id like to raise an IHG:

    Does anyone else have issues with the way IHG deal with receipts from their Points+Cash Bookings? Each time i complete one, i cant get a receipt for the cash paid from the hotel so i have to apply to IHG directly. Each time i do i receive differing requests for differing proof to be able to attain my receipt, ranging from/to:

    My complete credit card number [which is obviously a bad thing to send via email]
    My last 4 digits of Credit Card [even though they are on the booking i send them, they request i have to rewrite them to them as they cant take from my booking.

    Each time i have long drawn out mails every 2 days [as thats their turnaround for reply… when they remember to reply], just to get what i legally require.

    Any thoughts?

    • Genghis says:

      It doesn’t surprise me that you struggle as points and cash bookings are essentially you buying the points from IHG and then using those points along with some you already have to pay for the booking.

      • indeed… but just seems very painful. Doing paperwork is in general but having this extra layer of bureaucracy doesnt help…
