Q: What are Priority Club Point Breaks?

A: Instead of shelling out 15,000 to 40,000 points to book a reward room you can book rooms for just 5,000 points – this is pretty darn good as you can often get good properties on this deal.

Q: Why do they do this?

A: Either it’s a new hotel and they want to drum up business and then get the all important reviews on Trip Advisor

A: Or it’s the off-season and they have rooms to fill – hopefully your incidental spend will make up for the loss of revenue!

Q: When do they get updated?

A: Every 3/4 months the list is updated with new properties, although as the the period rolls on hotels which have sold out of Point Breaks rooms are removed – so hence the list can look quite scarce towards the end of the quarter.

Q: Help – there is no availability!

A: Not surprisingly the best hotels get snapped up in seconds – for example the Crowne Plaza Hotel -Champs Elysées was on the last list, with a normal rate of €300 per night rooms there were going like hotcakes!

Q: So where are they are at:

Q: Anything else…

A: Two more things – you can sometimes find a points break hotel by accident before it is “formally” published – this is because they use the same rate code – “IVANI” – as normal reward bookings

A: On any reward stay check what room you’ve booked – it’s not always the cheapest room which is a bonus – yet they may try and push you in one when you arrive. Bring a paper copy the booking confirmation!
