When I have previously written about this IHG Rewards Club’s Book Direct Promotion for up to 30,000 points (read more here, here & here), it has been unclear if the promo is applicable for stays in Pacific (Australasia).
I have not had stays in Australia/New Zealand during this promotion, but Sebastian just visited Auckland and had couple of stays at IHG properties.
You can access this promotion on IHG’s website here.
Here’s what posted for these two stays in Auckland:
The bonus points for the first and the second stays posted just fine. Note that the 1,000 bonus points for this promotion posted before he had had any stays. This proves that you can get the sign up points per the promo T&Cs merely registering for it.
Here’s refresher about this promo from one of the previous posts:
Note that for some reason the promo page may show the old promo from last year. When I use the link from the email that IHG sent, it shows the promo below. You can register for this offer using direct promo link (access here).

There were questions from readers on those previous posts how far in the “Pacific” this promo applies. Now I can say for sure that at least Australia and New Zealand are included. Still not sure if French Polynesia is but I would imagine yes.
This is great promo for those that have their account address in Asia-Pacific (excluding Greater China), Middle East or Africa.
