IHG award sale: 50% off award stays for Mexico, Latin America, and the Caribbean
IHG just launched a sale on award stays for Mexico, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
I’m pasting in the details and all available hotels below, but my “quick take” on the deal is this:
While IHG’s full price award rates are often unappealing except during “high demand” periods, 50% off can be a great deal. Most of these hotels will be going up in price as we get closer into the cold season Stateside, so
your best value is likely to be at the nicer properties and in mid to late October.
Note you cannot see/book this until Aug 6th.
If you are short on IHG points, you can always buy IHG points but beware it can take 24-72 hours to post. Be sure to do the math before buying to make sure it is a good deal for your situation. There happens to be a deal right now for an 80% points bonus right now, which may tip the odds in your favor.
