InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has again updated the terms and conditions associated with its Best Price Guarantee (BPG) program.
BPG “guarantees” you a free night, if you can find a lower rate on 3rd party site compered to IHG branded sites and you can fulfill all the requirements.
You can access the T&C’s of the BPG program here.
Australia & New Zealand 1.5% Minimum Price Difference
Now the minimum price difference must be 1.5% compared to 1% previously.
Reimbursement By Check
If the property has “technical difficulty” adjusting the valid claim to a free stay and the reimbursement is using check, the IHG will send the check to the address that you have on the reservation.
I have lost the number of times IHG has tweaked this guarantee since its inception. No drastic changes this time, however. You just have to make sure that the price difference is at least 1.5% between the IHG and 3rd party sites.
