IHG Rewards Club seems to have launched an on-going double points promotion for select new hotels in Asia-Pacific.
Member must book using the Best Flexible Rate to earn the bonus points. The valid hotels with the promo dates are displayed on the IHG’s page.
You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.
Here are the hotels offering double points:
- InterContinental Phuket Resort
- InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort
- Holiday Inn Express Pattaya Central
- Holiday Inn & Suites Saigon Airport
- Staybridge Suites Bangkok Thonglor
It seems that someone at IHG has forgotten to update the T&Cs for this offer because it likely lists the previous double points hotels. The dates on the terms also don’t reflect what is listed on the hotel list.
You need to keep in mind that double points are only awarded on the BEST FLEXIBLE (read the most expensive) RATE. It likely makes sense to book a reduced discounted rate if available than this double points one.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
