IHG Rewards Club originally planned to introduce changes to award pricing on 14th January 2019, but for some reason the changes were put back to 25th January. Unless there’s another delay, that means that today is your last chance to book hotels using IHG Points before the prices go up.
Note that if you wish to make changes to bookings after the 25th, the updated pricing will apply (even if you just want to drop a night or adjust dates slightly).
As Craig lamented when the list was first released, generally speaking, these are not positive changes,
“Although everybody has their own travel patterns and hotel preferences, the news really does not look good at all. A quick glance at British hotels shows that none of the hotels listed will cost fewer points going forward, and a substantial number will cost 5,000 points extra. In fact, a brief skim through the entire list suggests that 90-95% of the hotels listed are increasing in price.
One consolation is that the 70,000 points per night maximum appears to be maintained, so you don’t have to look for the Intercontinental Park Lane, etc.”
If you collect IHG Rewards Club Points, you definitely want to check out the list and make your award bookings today!
