IHG Rewards Club is running a short flash sale for the UK and Europe this week. This covers InterContinental, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, Staybridge Suites etc.
You can get up to 30% off at more than 600 hotels in over 100 cities throughout Europe. We’ve included a few examples that we’ve reviewed recently below.
The rules are simple:
Book by Friday 22nd March
Stay between 5th April 2019 and 31st January 2020
You can only book via this link
Booking must be made at least 3 days in advance
Only UK and European hotels are participating
The discount is usually 30% off Best Available Rate. IHG Rewards Club members receive an additional 3%-7% off.
However, as these sale rates are non-cancellable and non-refundable, you should really be comparing them to the existing Advanced Purchase rates.
Your saving might not be as high as 30% but prices are definitely lower than the usual Advanced Purchase rates. There are genuine discounts on offer until Friday.
Remember that, until 30th April, your stays will also count towards IHG’s ‘Rewards Nights. Faster.’ promotion.
Everyone has personalised targets which, in general, are easier or more generous than we have seen for a while. This is our article on the offer. Registration is now closed, however.
Rob got the following targets:
- 10,000 bonus points for staying five nights
- 19,200 bonus points for staying at three different IHG brands
- 5,600 bonus points for 2 x 2-night weekend stays (Saturday plus another night)
- 8,000 bonus points for four stays booked on a corporate rate
- 3,000 bonus points for one stay in February
- 42,800 bonus points for completing four of the five targets above
Take a look at what you’ve been offered. Assuming you registered before the deadline last week, you can check your targets here.
A few Flash Sale pricing examples:
Prices quoted above are IHG Rewards Club member prices per night for a random day in mid April 2019. As a non member you will pay more, but it is free to sign up.
If you have existing flexible IHG bookings for the Summer which can be changed, you may want to check the pricing. You may feel happier turning an existing refundable rate into a non-refundable booking as the date gets nearer.
The IHG flash sale booking site is here. You have until Friday to book these sale rates.
