If you need to lock in any IHG hotels for stays before 5th September, you should take a look at the latest IHG flash sale.
The headline discount is up to 30% off the Best Available Rate. This is available exclusively to IHG Rewards members, so it’s a good time to sign up to the programme if you are one of the six HfP readers who has not already done 🙂 Non-members receive a smaller discount of 20%.
These Flash Sale offers are available at hotels across the IHG portfolio, including Kimpton, InterContinental, Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn.
There isn’t much small print to worry about:
- It is available for stays between 26th March and 5th September 2021
- You must book by 1st March
- Only European hotels are included
All bookings are on ‘book now, pay later’ rates. This means that the sale is better value than usual.
When IHG usually has a sale, it discounts from the refundable rate even though sale rates are usually not refundable. You were not getting the full saving, because non-refundable rates are always a bit cheaper than refundable ones. In this case, as the sales rates ARE cancellable, it is a ‘proper’ saving.
Don’t forget to register for the current IHG promotion
These sale rates will qualify for the current IHG Rewards promotion, although due to current restrictions few readers will be able to take advantage.
You receive 2,000 bonus points for every two nights you stay by 31st March. These nights do NOT need to be consecutive.
Importantly, the 2,000 bonus points are treated as base points and so will count towards status for 2022.
You can register for the offer here using promo code 42050.
The flash sale booking page is here. Remember that you need to book by 1st March.
