Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Get two nights for the price of one at IHG hotels in UK and Europe – stay by April!

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

IHG, which owns the InterContinental, Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo and various other brands, has launched a generous ‘two nights for the price of one’ offer across Europe.

This 241 deal is called ‘More to See’.

What is especially good about this offer is that it is valid for stays up to 30th April 2021.

What is not so good is that stays booked under this offer are non-refundable unless – presumably – the hotel itself is closed.  The ‘two for one’ price is also driven off the Best Flexible Rate, so it is not a genuine ‘two for one’ offer as cheaper rates are available.

You can find full details on the IHG website here.

How does IHG’s ‘More to See’ deal work?

Here are the rules:

You must book between 3rd August and 24th August

You must stay between 4th August and 30th April 2021

You must book for two nights (longer stays must be booked as back-to-back chunks of two nights)

The price per night will be 50% of the Best Flexible Rate

You must pay in advance and the rate is non-refundable

You WILL earn IHG Rewards Club points and elite night credit

IHG More to See offer

Are there decent deals under this rate?

Yes, without a doubt, but not strictly ‘241’.

Look at InterContinental Porto, pictured above and which was my last IHG stay (I reviewed InterContinental Porto here), for a weekend in October:

IHG More to See offer

A Duplex Suite under this offer is €217 per night.

The next cheapest rate is €326 per night, so you are making a large saving.  However, this ‘Advance Saver’ rate is cancellable up to 14 days before arrival.  The question is therefore whether you are happy saving €109 per night whilst giving up some flexibility.

Of course, if you were planning to travel in the next couple of weeks, the risk profile is different to booking a few months in advance.

Don’t forget IHG’s ‘4x’ promotion either

For stays up to 8th September, your booking will also qualify for the IHG Rewards Club ‘4x’ promotion.

This offers:

Double base points on your first and second stays after registration

Triple base points on your 3rd stay

Quadruple base points on your 4th stay

    ‘Explore with confidence ‘ proudly written at the top left of the banner- meaning what, in what is the reintroduction of non cancellable rates for the first time since april?

  • Andrew says:

    And as usual with these kind of offers, far from 2 for 1 and actually worse than a normal offer like this as the cheapest rates at the moment ARE flexible but with this offer you are paying a higher rate to get 2 for 1 but foregoing flexibility. Holiday Inn Kensington Forum: £52 per night flexible rate; 2 nights for £93 under this promo. So a slight saving but foregoing flexibility. NOT a good deal, move on, nothing to see here.

      @Andrew, well that’s clearly not true, old bean. Did you get out of bed on the wrong side this morning? I must be in London towards the end of the month so I have absolutely no requirements for a flexible booking, non-refundable is just the ticket for my needs this time. Staying at the Crowne Plaza London Docklands would have been £362 but with this promotion, it is now £202. That saves me enough to buy a decent bottle of champagne. There is absolutely something to see here and a very good deal. Spiffingly good times ahead! Fiona x

      So that particular property doesn’t work. There are plants that will.

  • Nick says:

    Assuming there are some decent deals here (I note some examples where it’s definitely not!) Would this stack with the new IC Ambassador offer and count as your stay to trigger the extra free night too?

    • Mike Powell says:

      Which Ambassador offer is this? I must have missed it, could you link to it, nothing showing in offers on my IHG account.
      Thanks

    • Lady London says:

      IME IHG promos allow double-dipping

    • Lady London says:

      You’d have to think about it because you would be losing 3 months use of your Ambassador which might be more useful to have next year ( as the Amb thing can be signed up for, for longer), than this year.

  • KBuffett says:

    I hope Marriott reacts with a strong offering…

    • Chrisasaurus says:

      There are some decent 25% off rates (Welcome Back) at Marriott and those are flexible to 11.59pm night before check in

  • Dave says:

    It is tempting…I’ve got a points redemption booked for two nights in Zurich on the 14th August.

    Under this offer I could pay for a room for £63 which is a better deal than using points../but of course I’d lose that money if it all went wrong with Covid.

    • meta says:

      The offer is valid till 24 August, so I’d rebook the day or two before the travel.

    • John says:

      Which ihg hotel is it… They’re all crap, except affoltern which I haven’t tried but is newish

  • Martin says:

    Any thoughts from anyone on the best IHG stay (either value or quality) in Scotland?

    • Andrew says:

      Probably:-

      Holiday Inn – Aberdeen West (£27.75 a night)
      Holiday Inn Express – Glenrothes (£28.75 a night)

      Glenrothes being better value as you’ll get breakfast.

      I wouldn’t recommend the Points + Cash deal at Aberdeen though. 7,500 points + £26.65 Cash. That values an IHG point at 0.01p per night.

    • Harry T says:

      The Kimpton in Edinburgh is meant to be pretty good – I believe HFP reviewed it.

    • Jessiefan says:

      Dundee is always good value as it has too many hotels, built due to a white elephant V&A museum. Indigo is available for less than £40 under this offer.

    • Kai says:

      Just came back from a stay at Kimpton Edinburgh and it was very good.

  • Richmond_Surrey says:

    I checked France, Germany and Belgium for dates next week. In France and Germany I only found hotels in Paris and Berlin, so no use to me. Belgium had 2 hotels available with this offer (Brussels Airport and Antwerp North). Other hotels either not available under the offer or not available on the required dates. But booking Belgium hotel without cancellation option is too risky, they may be on black list next week.

    I guess, I will keep my Hilton Strasbourg reservation at 63 euro per night. And it’s actually where I need it, on my way back to UK. Hilton has dream away offer with cancellation until midnight day before.

  • John G says:

    Seems like you only pay a deposit equal to the first night charge and it is this that is non-refundable, not the whole stay. At least those are the terms under this offer at the hotel I sm looking at. Also says you can change dates by calling hotel directly, although rate change may apply.

    Also, re IHG hotels I have found in the past that they don’t charge your card until close to check-in day (even for non-refundable stays). I haven’t tried this for a while but it used to be the case that if you wanted to cancel before they take payment you could change the booking online to a more expensive flexible rate first, then cancel and they see it as a flexible rate and don’t charge. This may have changed.
