Frequent holiday-goers and corporate travellers can earn up to three free nights across the promotion period for every two night stay – meaning a long weekend courtesy of IHG is just around the corner. Plus, for those who like to bank their stays, guests have until December 2020 to redeem*.

2019 has been a landmark year of rewards and recognition for IHG Rewards Club members, with exclusive experiences and accelerated reward opportunities launching across dining, green initiatives and even priceless experiences with Mastercard.
