The InterContinental properties around the world are my favorite part of the IHG group (by some distance) and, right now, you can get 30% off at European InterContinental properties with a complimentary breakfast thrown in as well.

Embrace The Magic Of Winter With InterContinental Hotels

The InterContinental winter promotion has a few simple rules.

To get 30% off your room rate and complimentary breakfast for 2 people you need to:

  • Book a stay of 3 nights or more
  • Book by 28 February 2018
  • Stay between 11 December 2017 and 8 April 2018
  • The 30% discount is applied to the best flexible rate
  • Full payment is required at the time of booking
  • 33 European InterContinental properties are participating

You have to go through this booking page to get the 30% discount

Checking Out The Offer

Despite the fact that the 30% discount applies to the best available flexible rate (i.e. not be best rate overall) it’s always worth checking to see what rates the hotels are offering outside of the promotion.

I selected a few random dates at various European InterContinental properties and was surprised to find that, on each search, the winter promotion was the cheapest rate available (you should also check this for yourself as I didn’t check every set of dates at every property).

Here’s an example using the InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam:

The Magical Winter promotion rate…..

…and the best rate available outside of the promotion:

Here the winter promotion is actually only giving you a 13.3% discount on the best rate available but you’re also getting breakfast for two thrown in on each night of your stay.

I value a full breakfast at a good European InterContinental at around $20 per person (and that’s probably a conservative valuation) so, if you take that into account, I make the discount is closer to 25%.

Making Sure You See The Offer

When doing a search for prices you’ll need to make sure you’ve gone through the promotion page as I found that this was the only way to ensure that you’re offered the “Magical Winter” rate.

I tried accessing the offer through the regular IHG site and the dedicated InterContinental site but neither offered me the “Magical Winter” rate.

Bottom Line

You can make some impressive savings through this promotion if you’re looking to visit Europe before 8 April. It’s worth bearing in mind that the promotion offers the 30% discount on stays of between 3 and 21 nights so you’re not penalised for staying more than the 3-night minimum.

If you’ve been waiting for a good deal to come around to try out some of the traditionally more expensive IC properties in Europe this could be a good chance to do just that.
