IHG® Rewards Club 
Membership Terms and Conditions

The IHG® Rewards Club programme (“Programme”), which includes InterContinental® Ambassador and IHG® Business Rewards, is a loyalty programme offered by Six Continents Hotels, Inc. (“SCH”) and its subsidiaries and affiliates, all of which are InterContinental Hotels Group companies (collectively, “IHG”). By participating in this Programme, you agree to these terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”).  These Terms and Conditions describe the Programme and some of the benefits offered to IHG Rewards Club members (“Members” or “you”).  Terms specific to the InterContinental Ambassador programme, a loyalty programme specific to hotels within the InterContinental brand, and to the IHG Business Rewards programme, a loyalty programme that offers benefits for corporate travel bookers, can be found in later sections of these Terms and Conditions.

 

General Terms

  1. Enrolment: New Members may enrol in the Programme by completing the required information on the Programme website or through IHG branded hotels or other channels authorised by SCH.  By enrolling in the Programme and using your membership account, you will be eligible for benefits as described below and to earn IHG Rewards Club Points (“Points”), which can be redeemed for Reward Nights (as defined below) and various merchandise.  
  2. Hotel brands currently participating in the Programme include InterContinental®, HUALUXE® Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza®, Hotel Indigo®, EVEN® Hotels, Holiday Inn®, Holiday Inn Express®, Holiday Inn Resort®, Holiday Inn Club Vacations®, Staybridge Suites®, and Candlewood Suites® (collectively, “IHG Hotels”). The Kimpton® Hotels & Restaurants loyalty programme, Kimpton Karma, will become part of IHG Rewards Club in early 2018.  Additional information about the Karma programme’s integration into IHG Rewards Club is available here. Brands participating in the Programme may be added or deleted at the sole discretion of SCH.
  3. There is no fee to join IHG Rewards Club, but all Members must supply valid contact information and update such contact information as necessary. In the event communication with a Member is necessary, SCH will rely on the Member’s contact information on file for such communications. SCH has the right to terminate an account and/or revoke Member Points if it determines, in its sole discretion, that an account has multiple email addresses and/or is suspected of being related to fraudulent or abusive activity.  SCH reserves the right to terminate the accounts and/or revoke Points for Members without valid contact information.
  4. By participating in the Programme and taking advantage of its benefits, you agree:
    1. to maintain and use only one IHG Rewards Club account at any time;
    2. to be the only individual using your membership in the Programme (i.e., not sharing your account with anyone unless expressly permitted by SCH);  
    3. that you have provided valid contact information; 
    4. that your name as shown on your Programme account matches your legal identification; 
    5. that you only have one email address for the account; 
    6. that you have read and understand these Terms and Conditions;
    7. that you are at least 18 years of age or the age of majority in your state or province of residence, whichever is older; and
    8. that you have not enrolled as a company and/or other entity, as only individuals are permitted to enroll in the Programme.
  5. If you choose to terminate your membership, you should contact the IHG Rewards Club Customer Care Centre.
  6. SCH RESERVES THE RIGHT, in its sole discretion, to modify, alter, or otherwise update the Membership Terms and Conditions for the Programme, and/or to modify, suspend, or cancel the Programme at any time, even though such changes may affect the value of rewards or Points already accumulated. You should check the last updated date in the footer of these Terms and Conditions for notice of changes to them or to the Programme. If the footer indicates that the Terms and Conditions, or the Programme itself, have changed, you should review the changes carefully.  By choosing to remain a Programme Member after SCH has posted notice of such modifications or updates, and after you have had provided an opportunity to review the revised Terms and Conditions or Programme information, you agree to be bound by such revised Terms and Conditions or to be a part of the Programme as revised. The current Programme Membership Terms and Conditions supersede all prior published Programme Membership Terms and Conditions.
  7. Our right to cancel your membership, and to revoke or adjust Point deposits. SCH has the right to cancel any individual’s Programme membership, and to revoke any and all unredeemed Points and/or benefits or rewards collected, for reasons that include, but are not limited to: 
    1. Member’s violation of these Terms and Conditions;
    2. Member’s misrepresentation of any information or any misuse of this Programme;
    3. Member’s violation of any national, regional, or local law or regulation in connection with the use of membership privileges;
    4. Member’s failure to provide and maintain valid contact information;
    5. Member’s failure to pay for hotel charges and/or any expenses incurred during a Member’s Stay, including if such failure to pay is the result of a Member’s cheque being returned for insufficient funds or being invalid for any reason;
    6. Member’s commission of fraud or abuse involving any portion of this Programme, including but not limited to the abuse of corporate rates without authorisation (as demonstrated by, for example, appropriate identification or validation at check-in), any conduct that improperly impacts the accumulation of Points or rewards, or abuses the redemption aspects of the Programme (including the use of “bots” or other automated means of promotion entry);
    7. Member maintaining more than one active account; 
    8. Member’s physical, verbal, or written abuse or harassment of hotel personnel or SCH personnel; 
    9. Abuse/misuse of any benefits or privileges provided by SCH and/or any IHG branded hotels, or use of such benefits or privileges in violation of the applicable terms and conditions for them, including but not limited to the sale or barter of any Points or Point vouchers or Reward Nights; or 
    10. Member taking any other action or engaging in any other activities that are to the detriment of the Programme, SCH, or an IHG branded hotel; all as may be determined by SCH in its sole discretion.  
  8. If SCH cancels your membership, the cancellation will be effective immediately, by notice to you, to the contact information provided by you.  SCH will not be responsible for failure to notify any Member of cancellation of the Member’s account if the Member has not provided SCH with valid contact information.

    If membership is terminated either by Member or SCH, the Member will lose all Points, Point vouchers, Reward Nights, and benefits associated with the membership, and the Member will no longer be able to earn or redeem Points under this Programme.  If membership has been terminated by SCH for one of the reasons permitted in these Terms and Conditions, SCH reserves the right to not permit the Member to re-enrol. 

    SCH may withdraw Points from a Member’s account if they were deposited into the Member’s account in error, and may revoke all Points in a Member’s account if the Member abuses the Programme, including but not limited to abuse of the Point redemption process.

    In addition to the consequences set forth above,
    Programme violations (including but not limited to the sale or use of Elite status benefits for commercial gain), suspected fraud, or abuse in relation to promotions, Point or mileage credit or reward usage is subject to appropriate administrative and/or legal action by appropriate governmental authorities and by SCH, including, without limitation, freezing your account, the forfeiture of all Point transfers, rewards, vouchers, or merchandise issued pursuant to Point redemptions, and any accrued Points or miles in your account, as well as cancellation of the account and your future participation in the Programme.

  9. Some employers, by policy, may prohibit or restrict employee participation in the Programme.  Some countries’ laws may also prohibit participation in the Programme or some aspects of the Programme. Members are solely responsible for complying with their employers’ policies and applicable laws. SCH assumes no responsibility or liability for Members’ lack of compliance with such policies or laws.
  10. Arbitration. Except with respect to any claim or dispute involving the ownership, validity, or use of any SCH trademarks or service marks, any dispute arising out of or related to the Programme Terms (including any claim that the Programme Terms are invalid, illegal, or otherwise voidable or void), seeking as relief money damages or Points and/or solicitors’ fees or other damages will be submitted for arbitration to the American Arbitration Association (AAA). SCH shall have the right in a proper case to obtain temporary restraining orders, temporary or preliminary injunctive relief, and/or declaratory relief (other than declarations with respect to the amount of money damages) from a court of competent jurisdiction.
  11. The arbitration proceedings shall be heard by one independent arbitrator who shall be a solicitor or retired judge. The arbitration shall be held in Atlanta, Georgia and in accordance with the then-existing Commercial Arbitration Rules of the AAA. All matters within the scope of the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. 1, et seq.) will be governed by it and not by any state arbitration law. You and SCH waive any rights to maintain other available resolution processes for such disputes, such as a court action or administrative proceeding, to settle disputes. You and SCH waive any right to a jury trial for such disputes. The rules in arbitration are different from the rules that apply in court. There is no judge or jury, and review is limited, but an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief, and must honour the same limitations stated in the terms and conditions, as a court would.

    In reaching his or her decision, the arbitrator shall follow the Programme Terms, shall be bound to apply the applicable law, and shall not rule inconsistently with the applicable law. The arbitration shall be conducted on an individual basis, and not as a consolidated, common, representative, group or class action. The arbitrator shall include in his or her award any relief he or she deems proper in terms of money damages (with interest on unpaid amounts from the date due at the maximum rate allowed by law), and solicitors’ fees and costs. The award of the arbitrator shall be conclusive and binding upon all parties to the proceeding, and judgement upon the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

    Other than as may be required by law, the entire arbitration proceedings (including, but not limited to, any rulings, decisions, or orders of the arbitrator) shall remain confidential and shall not be disclosed to anyone other than the parties to proceeding.

  12. Limitations Period. Any and all claims and actions arising out of or relating to the Programme Terms and Conditions must be started within one (1) year from the occurrence of the facts giving rise to such claim or action, or such claim or action shall be barred. This Limitations Period section does not apply to residents of New Jersey.
  13. Class Action Waiver. You agree that you will not file a class action against SCH, participate in a class action against SCH, file or seek a class arbitration against SCH, or participate in a class arbitration against SCH, for any claim or action arising out of the Programme or the Programme Terms.
  14. Release. By participating in the Programme, each Programme Member agrees to release, discharge, and hold harmless SCH, its advertising and promotion agencies, their respective parent companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, and their directors, officers, agents, and employees from all claims or damages arising out of any use or misuse of the Programme by that Member. This Release section does not apply to residents of New Jersey.
  15. Protect Your Account Information. Each Programme Member is responsible for keeping his/her profile information up to date in the Programme and IHG Rewards Club systems, including relevant contact information, such as mailing address and email address. Most personal information and communication preferences can be updated by logging into your account on the IHG Rewards Club website.  For name changes please contact the IHG Rewards Club Customer Care Centre, and please be prepared to provide supporting legal documentation for your name change (such as a driver’s licence with your new name, marriage certificate, passport, or other legal documentation).  Each Programme Member is responsible for restricting access to and maintaining the confidentiality of his/her membership account and PIN, and agrees to accept responsibility for the activities of anyone using his/her PIN.  When contacting the IHG Rewards Club Customer Care Centre about your account, you may be asked for additional information for fraud prevention and security purposes.
  16. The Programme and its benefits are offered at the sole discretion of SCH and its subsidiaries and affiliates. SCH may assign or transfer any rights or obligations under this Programme, or any other loyalty programme, at any time to any related or unrelated entity, in its sole discretion.
  17. Terms Relating to IHG® Rewards Club Points

  18. You may earn Points for Qualified Stays (defined below) and Eligible Charges (defined below) beginning with the date of your enrolment in the Programme. Points will not be earned for Stays made prior to the date of your enrolment as shown in Programme records.  If you enrol in the Programme at the time of your initial stay in any IHG branded hotel excluding ANA partner hotels worldwide, you will earn 1,000 Points for that enrolling Qualified Stay.  Points for Qualifying Stays at IHG branded hotels are then earned as set forth in the Member benefits chart, available here.
  19. The number of Points earned may vary by hotel brand.  The number of Points a Member must redeem in order to obtain applicable benefits may vary by benefit and by hotel brand.
  20. A “Stay” is defined as one night or consecutive nights at the same hotel, regardless of frequency of check-in/check-out.
  21. Qualifying Rates include most business and leisure rates, such as Advanced Purchase rates, Best Flexible rates, worldwide sales negotiated rates (including but not limited to Corporate Gold rates), national/regional/local government rates, and specified leisure rates as confirmed by SCH’s reservation systems. In addition, in North, South, and Central America, and the Caribbean, Qualifying Rates include locally negotiated rates if those rates are discounted less than 30%. In Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Greater China (Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan) hotels and resorts, Qualifying Rates include all locally negotiated rates.
  22. Points will be awarded for Qualifying Stays booked through IHG’s central reservation offices, IHG web sites, authorised travel agents (excluding online travel agents such as Expedia.com and booking.com, and unauthorised agents on online vertical travel portals), or directly at the hotel.
  23. “Eligible Charges,” except at Kimpton hotels, also include food and beverage, telephone, laundry, and in-room movies charged to the Member's room. Charges at restaurants not operated by the hotel may not be eligible for Points. Hotels may choose to award Points for other charges at their discretion.
  24. At U.S. and Canadian hotels (except InterContinental® Alliance Resorts), you can earn Points on all Eligible Charges for multiple hotel rooms (up to 9) provided those rooms are used in conjunction with the Member's stay at the same hotel, and the Member’s IHG Rewards Club account number is recorded on each reservation, or the charges from those multiple room reservations are referred to on the hotel room bill associated with the Member's reservation. This includes group bookings where the bill for each room is paid for separately at check-out, if the IHG Rewards Club Member pays for each room.  Similarly, if a Member pays for more than one room during a Qualified Stay, as permitted in these Terms and Conditions, each such room is eligible for Your Rate pricing.
  25. Member benefits (including without limitation those for InterContinental Ambassador and IHG Business Rewards) are only available for the individual Member to whom they apply. For in-hotel Member benefits, a Member must personally check in to enjoy such Member benefits, and those benefits are not transferrable and cannot be used by other Members or non-Members.  Any violation of this provision may result in cancellation of a Member’s account, and may also result in a hotel charging the applicable fees for non-eligible Members’ or non-Members’ use of Member benefits.
  26. Points have no retail value, are not redeemable for cash or any other form of credit, and have no value until presented for redemption in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. Members have no ownership interest in accrued Points, and accrued Points do not constitute property of a Member. Use of the word “earn” herein, or in marketing materials, in relation to Programme Points shall mean “collect” and shall not mean that the Points have any value until they are presented for redemption. Points may not be purchased or sold, and are not transferable, except as otherwise stated herein.
  27. Point Expiration. CLUB LEVEL MEMBERSHIP POINTS (SEE MEMBER BENEFITS, INCLUDING LEVELS OF MEMBERSHIP, HERE) WILL EXPIRE IF YOUR MEMBERSHIP ACCOUNT BECOMES INACTIVE FOR ANY PERIOD OF TWELVE (12) MONTHS OR LONGER, WHICH MEANS YOUR POINTS WILL BE REMOVED FROM YOUR ACCOUNT AND WILL NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE FOR REDEMPTION. To maintain the Points in your membership account, you must have at least one “earn” or “redeem” transaction posted to your account every twelve (12) months. Use of the one night per year provided to IHG Rewards Club credit card holders does not constitute an “earn” or “redeem” activity to prevent Point expiration. If you redeem Points for a Stay and subsequently cancel that Stay, the redemption activity does not prevent Point expiration. Points do not expire for current Elite Members, although Points may expire twelve (12) months after an Elite Member’s account moves to Club level if there is no “earn” or “redeem” activity during those twelve (12) months.
  28. Points from Promotions. IHG Rewards Club may offer limited-time promotions that offer bonus Points and/or partner credits. Those promotions are governed by these Terms and Conditions but may have additional terms and conditions specific to the individual promotion. Many of these promotions are only available to Programme Members who receive a specific, targeted communication from SCH. Registration for a targeted offer for which you are not invited to participate is not permitted. Doing so is a Programme violation and may result in any or all of the following:  the freezing of your account, the forfeiture of all of your Point transfers, rewards, vouchers, or merchandise issued pursuant to Point redemptions, and any accrued Points in your account, as well as cancellation of the account and your future participation in the Programme.
  29. Point Purchases. You may purchase additional Points necessary to redeem a reward up to a maximum of 60,000 Points within the Programme within a calendar year. Points must be purchased in minimum increments of 1,000 Points, and can only be paid for by a valid, accepted credit card or approved payment method. Follow the link available on the “redeem” portion of the IHG Rewards Club website for more information, or call your regional IHG Rewards Club Customer Care Centre for assistance. Subject to local laws, no cancellations or refunds are permitted.
  30. Point Transfers. Points may be transferred between any two specifically designated Member accounts. A Member may authorise the transfer of the necessary number of Points into another Member's account. The cost to the Member authorising the transfer will be $5 US per 1,000 Points transferred, and can only be paid for by a valid, accepted credit card or approved payment method. Follow the instructions at https://www.ihg.com/rewardsclub/content/gb/en/redeem-rewards/miles or call your regional IHG Rewards Club Customer Care Centre for assistance. An authorisation to transfer Points form must be completed and submitted in order to transfer the required number of Points. Once the authorisation for transfer is received and processed, the transferor relinquishes all rights to the transferred Points permitted subject to local laws; no cancellations or refunds are permitted. Other than as stated above, no transfer of Points may occur. Points are not the property of any Member. Except for the Point transfers allowed under these Terms and Conditions, Points may not be sold, bartered, attached, seized, levied upon, pledged, or transferred under any circumstances, including, without limitation, by operation of law, upon death, or in connection with any domestic relations dispute and/or legal proceeding, unless authorised in writing by SCH. Any unauthorised transfers of Points shall be deemed a violation of these Terms and Conditions.
  31. Other Point Awards. Points may be distributed as rewards, recognition, or incentives, including in the form of Point vouchers, by IHG branded hotels to guests and hotel employees, and also by other companies with whom SCH has agreements, to their employees and customers.  Allow 6-8 weeks for Points (or miles) from Point vouchers to be deposited to your account if you send your voucher in the post. For Internet deposits, Points will be deposited immediately into your account. You should retain a copy of your Point voucher for 6 months or until your deposit appears on your statement, or account record on the IHG Rewards Club website. Point vouchers are distributed on a promotional basis only, and are subject to the terms and conditions set forth on the vouchers.
  32. Exclusions. Members will not earn Points and/or enjoy Member benefits during a Stay, or earn Points retroactively, on any reservations booked through Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) or through unauthorised travel agents on online vertical travel portals. This restriction includes but is not limited to: earning Points on food and beverage purchases, parking, in-room dining, movies, and any other incidental charges incurred during the Member’s Stay.
  33. Points are not issued for Stays at the following reduced room rates, which are Non-Qualifying Rates, and which make a Stay a Non-Qualifying Stay: net wholesale individual and group rates, certain package rates, the employee discount rate, the friends and family rate, the crew rate, special discounted contract rates, the seasonal worker/crew rate, the 50% travel club discount rate, the distressed passenger rate, IHG Rewards Club Reward Nights/Airline Hotel Reward rate, most rates booked through most third-party web sites, complimentary hotel Stays, and any other rates not defined as Qualifying Rates.

    Except as expressly permitted elsewhere in these Terms and Conditions, Points are not awarded for fractions of a U.S. dollar spent, or for dollars spent on tax, VAT, GST, service charges, gratuities, or hotel incidentals.

    Charges not billed to your room, gift shop purchases, and meeting charges (other than IHG® Business Rewards charges), will not be eligible for Points.

  34. You must have stayed in the room and paid for it in full to earn Points. Only the Member whose name, as reflected on his or her IHG Rewards Club account, is on the reservation record will be awarded Points and will be awarded Qualifying Night (a single night during a Qualified Stay) credit toward achieving Elite-level status or other promotional goals.  For the avoidance of doubt, if more than one Member stays in a room, only one of the Members will be awarded Points and/or benefits, as long as all other conditions for such award of Points and/or benefits are satisfied.  Using a Member’s account number for a non-Member’s stay is not permitted, and may result in cancellation of the Member’s account, with all Points forfeited. In the event that multiple accounts are found to belong to the same person, SCH reserves the right to close all of the accounts and revoke all Points. 
  35. Points and/or Qualifying Night credit are not awarded for no-shows even if the room is paid for in full. 
  36. Points will not be issued if your room is paid for by a trade group, association, or company as part of a convention or group business meeting (10 rooms or more). If you stay at an IHG branded hotel under the terms of a contract or group commitment, you will not be eligible to receive Points unless you separately pay for your own room.
  37. For Bonus Point packages or Bonus Mile packages, additional terms and conditions apply, and you should review those if you purchase such packages.
  38. Points Adjustments. The Points listed in your IHG Rewards Club account are subject to change to reflect actual stay information, any adjustments based on these Terms and Conditions or the terms of a promotion, and Programme changes. If you believe your account activity statement is inaccurate, contact your regional IHG Rewards Club Customer Care Centre or InterContinental Ambassador Service Centre. Point adjustments will not be made more than 60 days after the statement date. Please keep all of your hotel room receipts for your records, as they will be required for Point adjustment requests based on those hotel stays.
  39. Data Protection. Under the data protection legislation of various countries, we are required to particularly draw your attention to the fact that by applying for Programme membership, and by virtue of your continued membership, you accept and explicitly authorise SCH, in its capacity as data controller, by its subsidiaries, affiliates, and/or franchisees, including IHG hotels in nearly 100 countries, and by the IHG Rewards Club Customer Care Centres and InterContinental Ambassador Service Centres, to do the following with the personal information you supplied during enrolment in the Programme or during the course of your Programme membership:  (i) process it, (ii) transfer it worldwide to any third parties with which SCH is affiliated within the scope of the Programme, (iii) transfer it to third parties to process on SCH’s behalf, where required by applicable law, or in the event of a company reorganisation, merger, or acquisition, for use of such information in the administration of membership records, or for use in connection with guest service, advertising, marketing, and communication purposes.  Such third parties or SCH may contact you by mail, fax, telephone, or email.  In addition, SCH may offer you a benefit in the form of an opportunity to receive information on goods or services that may be of interest or value to you, by providing various companies with a list of IHG Rewards Club Members.  This is an opt-in benefit for Programme Members who are residents of Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Australia, Canada, or other countries that require an opt-in process.  If you reside in a country that requires such benefits to be offered on an opt-in basis, and you would like to opt in, you will need to make the appropriate selection in the online preference centre or contact your IHG Rewards Club Customer Care Centre or InterContinental Ambassador Service Centre. Members residing in all other areas of the world, including the U.S.A., will automatically get this benefit upon enrolment, but can choose to be excluded from such affiliated third-party contacts and/or such mailing lists by making the appropriate selection in the online preference centre or by contacting their IHG Rewards Club Customer Care Centre or InterContinental Ambassador Service Centre.

    You have a right of access to your data by sending a written request to your regional IHG Rewards Club Customer Care Centre or InterContinental Ambassador Service Centre.

  40. Governing Law. These terms and conditions shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia, United States, without regard to its conflicts of law rules. Any dispute not covered by the terms of the Arbitration provision set forth in these Programme Terms may be filed only in the state or federal courts located in the State of Georgia, United States.
  41. Communications Not Received. SCH is not liable for loss of misdirected correspondence, requests, freight, or Reward Certificates that may be incomplete, illegal, delayed, lost, or stolen.
  42. Restricted by Law. This Programme or participation in it is not valid, and/or the awarding of Points or partner miles/credits, and/or the granting of rewards is void, where prohibited or restricted by law in the Member's home country (domicile).
  43. Tax Liability. Taxing authorities may determine that IHG Rewards Club Points, rewards, and airline miles received through participation may be subject to tax liability, including, without limitation, foreign, federal, state and local taxes, surcharges, security charges and departure taxes. In that case, any tax liability, including disclosure, connected with the receipt and/or use of rewards is the responsibility of the IHG Rewards Club Member.
  44. Programme Interpretation. Interpretations of Programme Terms & Conditions shall be at the sole discretion of SCH.
  45. Transfer of IHG® Rewards Club Points Upon Death. When an IHG Rewards Club Member passes away, the Member's Points may be transferred to the IHG Rewards Club account(s) of the Member's beneficiary(ies). The request for transfer should be sent to the IHG Rewards Club Service Centre by the executor or administrator of the decedent’s estate, along with court documents showing authority, or by a sole beneficiary, along with copies of the decedent’s will and death certificate. The request must be received within one (1) year of the date of death. Transfer fees will be waived.
  46. No Guarantees on Merchandise. SCH, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, franchisees, and agents make no guarantees, warranties or representations of any kind, expressed or implied, with respect to items of merchandise or products (including but not limited to merchandise or products obtained by redeeming Points), or services of partners, and shall not be liable for any loss, expense (including without limitation, any legal fees), accident or inconvenience that may arise in connection with the use of such items or as a result of any defect or failure of such items. Any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose are specifically disclaimed. This Guarantees on Merchandise section does not apply to residents of New Jersey.

At the end of the calendar year, Qualifying Nights in excess of the number required for each status level will be counted towards the Member’s Elite status qualification for the following calendar year. Elite Rollover Nights are only valid for one calendar year.
  52. Member Benefits

  53. As a Member of the Programme, you may be entitled to special services and benefits at IHG hotels. Benefits and services may change from time to time and may vary by hotel, country, and geographical region.  Click here for more information and to view the benefits chart.  Most benefits, including Member-exclusive rates, are available only for Members who book their hotel reservations through IHG’s websites (including mobile sites), the IHG app, IHG’s central reservations office, or at an IHG hotel’s front desk.
  54. Reward Nights

  55. IHG Rewards Club Points may be redeemed for Reward Nights, and the number of Points required for a Reward Night varies by brand and by hotel. Point requirements are valid for IHG branded hotels worldwide, except IHG Army Hotels and Kimpton hotels before Kimpton Karma becomes part of the Programme in early 2018. Point values for any hotel or destination may change at any time. Points have no value until presented for redemption by the Member.
  56. IHG Rewards Club reserves the right to restrict, suspend, modify, discontinue, substitute, or cancel the Reward Nights programme at any time without notice.
  57. Advance reservations are required to use a Reward Night. Reward Night reservations are not travel agent commissionable.  Members may redeem Points for Reward Nights by calling the IHG Rewards Club Customer Care Centre in their region or by reserving the Reward Nights on the IHG Rewards Club website.  Members must be logged in to redeem Points online for a Reward Night. Reward Night reservations require a credit card to guarantee the reservation. Reward Night reservations can be cancelled online but cannot be modified (modifying a Reward Night reservation will cancel it).  Any fraudulent conduct or misuse of a Reward Night, including but not limited to cancelling a Reward Night reservation following check-in, may result in forfeiture of Points and/or other remedies permitted under these Terms and Conditions.
  58. If a third-party beneficiary (instead of the Member who made the relevant booking) intends to check in at any Greater China properties (Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan) with a Reward Night, the Member must call the IHG Rewards Club Customer Care Centre no less than 7 days before the Reward Night stay date. Member must provide specific personal details of such third-party beneficiary as requested by SCH for its registration and validation purposes. To change any provided information, the Member must follow the same procedure mentioned above.  If the Member fails to provide and/or change the requested information on time or the information provided is not correct for any reason, the third-party beneficiary will not be able to check in at the front desk and the relevant booking will be cancelled. The above requirement for third-party beneficiary check-in applies to all Reward Nights earned through Stays, Points, promotions, or in any other way.
  59. Each Reward Night is valid only for a double or king room for one night and tax. Reward Nights at all-inclusive resorts are based on double occupancy. Extra person charges apply beyond double occupancy. Please call the IHG Rewards Club Customer Care Centre for details.
  60. Reward Night reservations may be booked for multiple hotel rooms (up to 9) on the same stay date at the same property, provided the IHG Rewards Club Member number is recorded on each reservation, the required Points are redeemed for each room, and there is available inventory.
  61. There are no blackout dates for Reward Nights; however, room inventory is limited and subject to prior sale. In addition, Members may not be able to redeem Points for Reward Nights at InterContinental Residences.

  63. Reward Nights are void where prohibited by law.
  64. IHG Rewards Club Points or partner miles/credits are not awarded for the room rate equivalent on Reward Night stays; however, Points are awarded for all other eligible charges. Reward Night stays are defined as those in which a Member redeems Points for a Reward Night and include Reward Nights booked via Points & Cash.
  65. Reward Nights (including those booked through PointBreaks), in-hotel redemptions, redeemable gift vouchers and merchandise may not be sold or used for commercial gains. Doing so is a Programme violation and may result in a hotel refusing to permit the use of a Reward Night that was sold or used for commercial gains, and may also result in the freezing of your account, the forfeiture of all Point transfers, rewards, vouchers, or merchandise issued pursuant to Point redemptions and any accrued Points or miles in your account, as well as cancellation of the account and your future participation in the Programme. 
  66. Members who cancel their Reward Night reservation prior to the cut-off time set by the hotel for cancelling reservations, and who do not stay, will have their redeemed Points for that reservation re-deposited into their IHG Rewards Club account, and may be subjected to a processing fee. 
  67. Members who do not cancel their Reward Night reservation by the hotel’s cancellation deadline and do not use their reservation (no-show) are still subject to a no-show charge for the first night of the reservation, plus tax, per room, billed to the credit card used to guarantee the reservation upon booking.
  68. IHG® Rewards Club PointBreaks

  69. IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks is a Reward Nights special offer. PointBreaks are Reward Nights with prices beginning at 5,000 Points at selected hotels for a limited period of time, instead of the standard redemption rate. IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks Reward Nights are based on availability and PointBreaks locations may be added or deleted at any time. Due to the limited availability, each Member may only book two PointBreaks Reward Nights reservations per hotel during the special offer time period. The PointBreaks special offer may be restricted, suspended, modified, or substituted at any time without notice. All other Reward Nights terms and conditions apply.
  70. IHG® Rewards Club “Points & Cash”

  71. IHG Rewards Club “Points & Cash” is an option for obtaining a Reward Night. You may choose to redeem Points for a Reward Night by using your existing Points for all required Points for the desired Reward Night, or using your existing Points and purchasing additional Points in various increments to total the required Points.
  72. Amounts required for Point purchases are subject to change at any time. You must use a valid, accepted credit card or approved payment method for Points purchases. 
  73. Points & Cash Reward Nights may be redeemed on the IHG Rewards Club website, the IHG mobile app, or through the IHG reservation call centre.
  74. Upon completion of the Points purchase, you agree that the total U.S. dollar amount will be immediately charged to the valid credit card or approved payment method you specified. The cost for the Points purchased is non-refundable. If the Reward Night is cancelled in accordance with Reward Nights terms and conditions and with the hotel's cancellation policy, the purchased Points will be re-deposited into your IHG Rewards Club account. 
  75. Cash components of this award that are viewed in currencies other than U.S. dollars will be adjusted by IHG Rewards Club, as needed, to reflect the U.S. dollar equivalent of the non-U.S. dollar currency at the time of payment. All other Reward Night terms and conditions apply.

A Loyalty Programme Alliance is a third-party loyalty programme with which SCH has an arrangement to allow members of that third-party programme, who are also IHG Rewards Club Members, to collect miles or other credits for that third-party programme instead of collecting Points.
  85. The Loyalty Programme Alliances available may change at any time, at SCH’s sole discretion.  If a Member chooses to collect a Loyalty Programme Alliance’s miles/credits and that Loyalty Programme Alliance is later removed from the programme, that Member’s choice will automatically be changed to collecting IHG Rewards Club Points.

Consult your Loyalty Programme Alliance programme to determine Loyalty Programme miles/credits needed to obtain the airline reward of your choice. The posting time of frequent flyer miles varies by airline and can take up to 6 weeks to post to your frequent flyer account. For IHG Rewards Club Points that are converted to Loyalty Programme Alliance miles/credits in a Loyalty Programme Alliance programme, the IHG Rewards Club Programme will be responsible only for arranging for the airline or other vendor to post the appropriate credit to your account. Following such posting, all risk of loss, bankruptcy, theft or dishonour will be borne by you, and there shall be no refund or conversion of IHG Rewards Club Points into any other reward option. Once Points are converted to Loyalty Programme Alliance miles/credits, they cannot be converted back to Points or shifted to another Loyalty Programme Alliance programme.
