Deal: guaranteed 50% off participating hotels and resorts

Expiry: book by 2 December 2020. Stay by 30 June 2021.

As part of the upcoming Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, IHG is going all out with a guaranteed 50% off room rates at participating hotels across Australasia, South Pacific, Asia, Middle East and Africa.

There are 32 hotels in Australia and 5 in New Zealand that are taking part, including properties from InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Voco and more. Here are the key facts you need to know:

  • IHG Members receive a guaranteed 50% off room rates and eligible properties. Non-members get 45% off.
  • A minimum stay of two nights is required
  • IHG members can book from 24 Nov to 2 Dec 2020, and travel from 25 Nov 2020 to 30 Jun 2021.
  • The public sale is open from 26 Nov to 2 Dec 2020 for booking, with stays from 27 Nov 2020 to 30 Jun 2021.
  • All room types at participating properties are included

To take advantage of this deal, you’ll need to be an IHG Rewards member. It’s free to join and grants you two days of early access to the sale, plus the full 50% discount compared to non-members.

Deal: double points on all stays

Expiry: register and stay by 15 December 2020

Whether it’s a work trip or beach trip, here’s how to pocket up to two times the normal number of points you would normally get, from staying at any IHG hotel or resort across Australasia.

Just simply book and stay at a participating property between 1 October through to 15 December 2020. You’ll get double points on every stay. If your dates match up with the Cyber Sale above, you could also double dip with 50% off room rates.

Is this a good deal?

If you are able to travel, it’s a no-brainer to take advantage of this deal if possible. There is no registration or upfront cost required — just book any standard rate as usual and you’ll start earning the bonus points.

Once you’ve amassed a decent balance, the best thing to do is usually redeem it for a free hotel night. Depending on the hotel and seasonal periods, a room could command from 7,500 points to upwards of 45,000 points per night.

IHG is introducing dynamic reward pricing which could lead to higher rates, but the chain promises to keep points rates the same or lower (during off-peak periods) for the next 50 weeks or so.

Rewards Nights booked with points are also fully refundable up to 6pm the night before checking-in, making them a great way to book accommodation during uncertain times.

Offer history

  • November 2020: Up to 50% off room rates (Cyber Sale)

  • September 2020: Up to 4x bonus points on stays

Summing Up

This is a great IHG promotion to take advantage of if you’re able to explore our beautiful backyard. The Intercontinental Hotels Group (i.e. IHG) has many properties across Australia, from luxe city hotels to cosy country properties.

Remember to consider IHG ‘Book Now Pay Later’ for a flexible room rate with sharper pricing than the usual options.
