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 31st January.

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.

This list is shorter than the previous one and, from a European point of view, weaker.  As always, however, if there are good hotels in places where you want to go then you’re onto a winner.

If you try to book one of these hotels on Tuesday morning for the period to 31st January and it is showing the full points price, this means that the hotel has sold out of its allocation of PointBreaks nights.

What are the PointBreaks highlights?

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

The UK hotels are a bit of an odd mix, although Gatwick is there.  Crowne Plaza’s in Geneva and Istanbul are the pick of the European list.  Holiday Inn Dubai Festival City which we wrote about here is a good deal given it is peak tourist season.  InterContinental Johannesburg which we reviewed here is also on the list.

My pic of the 10,000 point redemptions is Holiday Inn London – Heathrow Bath Road.  Here is our review and it is pictured below.  It is a brand new hotel and impressive.

For once, there are some good options in Australia and New Zealand.  Japan is also well represented.

How to book a PointBreaks room

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 31st January.

If you are trying to book a reward night for a date up to 31st January and it is pricing at the full rate, the hotel has sold its allocation of PointBreaks nights.

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.
