IHG® Rewards Club Introduces Dynamic Reward Nights Around the World
Rewards points will now flex up and down.
IHG(InterContinental Hotels Group) began extending dynamically priced Reward Nights to more hotels around the world this week, building on a successful launch in the Greater China region last month.
With this program update, the amount of points required for members to redeem a Reward Night will now flex up and down, just like cash ratesfor room bookings.
At initial launch in Greater China, the introduction of dynamic Reward Nights allowed members to experience the benefit of a variable pricing model in the current travel environment:
- Points remained flat to2019 pointamounts or were lowered for the next 50 weeks of stay dates.
- More than 65 percent of hotels in Greater China rolled out with a reduction of point amounts due to Dynamic Reward Nights, with some hotels were lowered up to 30,000 points from their previous point amounts.
Announced last year, we are taking a measured approach to introducing Reward Night price flexibility so that when our members are ready to travel again, theyll be able to enjoy the benefits.
This new way for members to make the most of their points complements the existing IHG Rewards Club benefits our members enjoy atmore than5,900 IHG Hotels Resorts around the world, including exclusive member rates, no blackout dates for Reward Nights, and free Wi-Fimaking every stay as rewarding as possible.
Given the current circumstances, we have also made a number of amendments to our loyalty program, includingadjusting our Elite criteria for 2020to reduce the requirements and extending status through January 2022. Points never expire for members with Elite status, and for our Club members we have extended points expiration dates, so members canmore easilymaintaintheir well-earned points for future travel.
We continue to monitor the evolving situation and keep our cancellation policy and amendments to our loyalty program under constant review. To see the latest details please alwaysrefer to the website here.
