Upto 35% off weekend stays, 25% during the week

June 29th, 2009 No comments

The offer keeps on going, which is nice because it offers great rates. I’ve used this a few times and although officially you are not meant to get points, it often turns out that they are awarded! As I’ve said before, it’s worth comparing this against the “Advance Purchase Rate” which has the same no-refundable policy and does award points and counts as a qualifying stay.

What: “InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) is offering a minimum of 25% off weekend stays including up to 35% off Friday and Sunday nights at over 200 participating InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and Express by Holiday Inn hotels across the UK.”

Where: UK

10,000 Points per stay at InterContinental Hotels & Resorts

June 26th, 2009 No comments

What: Earn 10,000 extra Priority Club points per stay at participating InterContinental Hotels & Resorts properties. For a Royal Ambassador that would mean 14,000 points for a 1 night stay!

This is not a sign up promotion, but a “package” promotion. Make sure when booking you select a package which includes the 10,000 points. I priced this up for a weekend in August in Paris, the cost was an extra €35 per night against the “Best Available”, so check other rates first!

Where: Worldwide

Brands: InterContinental Hotels & Resorts

When: Offer valid for stays from 6th July to 31 August 2009. (Book now)
