LAST CALL: IHG Europe Summer Weekends 50% Off Sale: Book By July 31 & Stay July 18 – September 28, 2014


IHG launched a fantastic Summer Weekend sale back in May (access my piece here) and I thought that it would be a right time to reminder about this offer now that the summer vacations are about to start for most Europeans in two weeks time.

InterContinental Vienna

IHG Europe Summer 2014 50 Percent Off July 18 September 28 2014 IC Vienna Rates


There were questions, whether this is a qualifying rate for IHG Rewards Club points, as the online booking shows that one would earn 0 points and some had contacted IHG and were told that this would have been too discounted rate to be eligible.

I can reiterate that there is nothing on the terms and conditions of the IHG Rewards Club that would make this rate plan excluded from earning points.

“Eligible Charges Worldwide include the following Qualifying Room Rates  paid for hotel room nights: including the hotel’s Advanced Purchase  Rate, Best Flexible Rate, worldwide sales negotiated rate, national/regional/local government rate and specified leisure rates as  confirmed by IHG’s HOLIDEX® Plus reservation systems. Points will be awarded for Qualifying Room Rates booked through IHG central reservation offices, IHG web sites, travel agents or directly at the hotel. In  addition, in North, South and Central America and the Caribbean, points may be collected on locally negotiated rates if these rates are discounted less than 30%. At Asia Pacific hotels, Qualifying Room Rates also include all locally negotiated rates.”


“Points are not issued for stays at the following reduced room rates (Non-Qualifying Room Rates; Non-Qualifying Stay): net wholesale individual and group rate, certain package rates, employee discount rate, friends and family rate, crew rate, special discounted contract rates, seasonal worker/crew rate, 50% travel club discount rate,
distressed passenger rate, IHG® Rewards Club Reward  Nights/Airline Hotel Reward rate, most rates booked through most third-party web sites, complimentary hotel stays and any other rates not defined as a Qualifying Room Rate.”

It well could be that this rate plan is marked as non-qualifying at the IHG’s end and the stay may initially post as non-qualifying. You must then take this with the IHG Rewards Club customer service and argue about the program terms and conditions if they are not willing to fix the stay without a “fight”.

Unfortunately, I am not going to be in Europe before early October at the earliest, so I won’t have a chance to test how this rate offer posts.

I am not sure if IHG has intentionally included most of the hotels for this sale even when they are not listed at participating property on the long list above? At these rates, it makes zero sense to redeem points for these hotels. Just pay, register for promotions and collect more IHG Rewards Club points.

Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:

• 50% off Best Flex represents a saving of 50% off our Best Flexible rate per room, per night for two adults sharing a standard double/twin room (inclusive of VAT).

• Bookings must be made at least 3 days in advance of first night of stay.

• Offer available for stays on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights (with some limited midweek availability – please check when booking).

• Member ID or IHG voucher will be required at check-in as proof of eligibility for this offer.

• Offer only available at participating European InterContinental Hotels; Resorts, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, Staybridge Suites and Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express hotels.

• Offer available for reservations made between 15th May 2014 and 31st July 2014 for stays in the period 18th July 2014 to 28th September 2014.

• All bookings are subject to availability of rooms allocated to this offer at participating hotels.

• Room only rate for InterContinental® Hotels; Resorts, Crowne Plaza® Hotels; Resorts, Hotel Indigo®, Holiday Inn® and Staybridge Suites®. Breakfast included for Holiday Inn Express® Hotels.

• Full payment must be made at time of booking; no amendments permitted; no refunds will be given (except where prohibited).

• This offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or promotion.

• This offer cannot be redeemed with IHG Rewards Club points.
