Not many people know that IHG – owner of the InterContinental, Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza etc hotel brands – has a scheme aimed at travel bookers and small businesses.  It is called IHG Business Rewards.

IHG has launched a ‘double points’ promotion for Business Rewards members. This makes it worth taking a look at exactly how the scheme works.

Full details can be found on the IHG website here.

We ran a full HfP article on how IHG Business Rewards works here.

IHG Business Rewards is a very simple scheme. The person who makes a hotel or meeting room booking – but who cannot be the traveller themselves – earns 3 IHG One Rewards points per $1 spent. 

We value IHG One Rewards points at 0.4p.  This means that the travel booker gets 1.2p of points for every 78p ($1) spent.  This is a decent deal given that, for room bookings, the traveller also earns their points as usual.

You get double points for the next few months

IHG is currently running a ‘double points’ promotion. Once you have registered via the Business Rewards website:

  • you will receive double points (6 per $1) on each booking
  • your meeting, room booking or event must be booked by 30th June
  • your meeting, room booking or event must take place by 31st August

You can find out more, and register, here.
