    I will defer to anyone who has done this, but in general – irrespective of what a site tells you – there are 3 options:

    1. No name checks done (eg Amex to Radisson, Nectar)
    2. Only surname checked
    3. Both names checked

    In reality most people go with 2) due to issues over people using, for example, Rob or Robert across different accounts which makes 3) error prone. You would be fine if IHG is using 1) or 2).

    Thanks Rob, my wife hasnt taken my surname so it looks like it isn’t going to work. Never mind, thank you.
