IHG Hotels in the UK and Ireland have launched a Flash Sale now that most people in the UK can start roaming freely.
The base discount is 25%, and IHG Rewards Club members are eligible for an additional 5% off (total discount roughly 29%). The sale is valid for stays through December 17, 2021, but must be booked by May 23.
You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.
There is no prepayment requirement on these Flash Sale rates. You must, however, cancel a minimum of three days before your stay, or a one-day penalty applies.
Here’s a rate search for a weekend stay in June:
There are still hotels that are either closed or used as quarantine hotels (those around Heathrow).
InterContinental London Park Lane
The rate here is decent, although nothing extraordinary.
It is rather interesting that there are hotels that don’t plan to open by June (the ones around Heathrow are likely quarantine ones from RED country arrivals).
Perhaps worth looking at the rates if you are planning to stay in UK or Ireland by the end of the year, and book if they are reasonable. You can always cancel without a fee if done a minimum of three days before your stay.
Here are the terms and conditions of this sale:
The May 2021 UK and Ireland Flash Sale (the “Promotion”) is valid only for selected bookings made from 17 May 2021 to 23 May 2021 (both dates inclusive) (the “Booking Dates”) for stays at participating IHG® branded hotels in the UK and Ireland between 20 May 2021 and 17 December 2021 (both dates inclusive) (the “Stay Dates”) using the “Book Now, Pay Later” or “Book Now, Pay Later – IHG® Rewards Member Rate” during the Booking Dates.
