New to IHG PointBreaks?

IHG Rewards Club releases a list of discounted PointBreaks hotels every few months which are bookable for 5,000 points per night. The promotion is incredibly generous and means you can book any hotel on the list for $35 per night when you purchase IHG points for 0.7 cents each using the IHG’s “Points & Cash” loophole.

Usually they will include an assortment of hotels around the world that can be booked for only 5,000 points per night, and often include even a few InterContinental hotels.

Of the current lists 175 properties there are only 2 InterContinental and 16 Crowne Plaza properties, which include:

Rules and Tips for Booking IHG Point Breaks

  • Many people book the minute the list goes live, but few people check back a week or month later. If you can’t find any availability after the blitz at the start it’s always worth checking back towards the end of the promotion to see if the hotel released more award nights.
  • Book as soon as you find a location that you would like to stay in before the offer runs out because each location has a limited amount of PointBreaks reservations that they provide.
  • You can only make two PointBreaks reservations per month, per hotel with the new rules implemented by IHG. It may be possible to book a 3rd reservation within the same month after the first stay is completed.
  • PointBreaks Reservations are fully refundable, so if you have to cancel your stay you will get all of your points deposited back into your account.
