A LoyaltyLobby reader forwarded me an offer that he had received from UK based discount portal offering 50% off IHG stays between December 1 – February 28, 2017.
Members must book minimum five per the T&Cs (only three by the rate rules though) days in advance or by December 15, 2016, and the stay length must be at least two nights to enjoy the discount.
You can access this sale on IHG’s website here.
Note that the discount is labeled as “Health Service” one based on the UK portal promoting deals for the sector. These are open for all, however.
The discount is valid for stays on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Some hotels, however, may offer midweek availability too during the softer occupancy periods.
Here are some rate displays:
Here are the participating hotels:
IHG Rewards Club has traditionally had pretty good winter sales for stays in Europe when the occupancy rates fall off due to year end holidays and drop off in business stays.
The T&Cs don’t state that this rate would not earn IHG Rewards Club points. I remember that some readers, however, did have challenges to get points posted for heavily discounted rate such as this in the past.
Seems that whoever wrote the T&Cs for this promotion merely copy/pasted them from 2015. February 29 doesn’t exist in 2017 regardless what the IHG says.
The T&Cs state that you may be asked to present the voucher above at the time of checking in. I have never heard any property actually requesting it. IHG has similar PARTNER promotions going on with companies such as MasterCard.
