IHG flash sale

Participating hotels in the UK and Europe are on offer at 30% off the standard Best Flexible Rate.

Whilst you need to pre-pay your room, these bookings are fully refundable up to 14 days before arrival.

You can book for travel until 30th April 2021. Full details and rules are on this page of the IHG website.

And earn double points ……

This offer will double up with IHG’s new ‘double points’ promotion.

You will earn double base points on all cash stays between 1st October and 15th December. You MUST register before your stay via this link. Use code 44480 if needed.

Get a 75% bonus buying IHG Rewards Club points

Talking of IHG, IHG Rewards Club has just launched a 75% bonus for buying points.

The link to buy is here.

We have seen numerous offers of a 100% bonus during 2020, so I wouldn’t buy speculatively at this price. If you are looking to make a cash booking in the flash sale, however, it is worth looking at whether buying points for a redemption stay is cheaper.

The 75% bonus runs until 11th October.
