Best Price Guarantee Claim Questions & Answers:
- What is the Best Price Guarantee (“BPG”)?
It is our promise to our guests that they will get the best rate available online for IHG branded hotels when they make hotel room reservations directly with IHG. If a lower rate is available on a non-IHG website for an IHG branded hotel room, and that lower rate meets the requirements of the BPG Terms and Conditions, IHG will match the lower rate and provide the individual that submitted the BPG claim 5X (5 times) the IHG® Rewards Club points on the room rate for that stay up to a 40,000-point maximum. *These bonus points are only awarded to IHG Rewards Club Members.
- Can I book my reservation directly with the hotel or through the IHG Central Reservation Office and still be eligible to submit a claim?
Yes, but you still must complete the online claim form to take advantage of the Best Price Guarantee.
- Can I submit screenshot evidence to support the lower rate found?
No, IHG will independently determine the validity of any claim and will not review documentation provided in lieu of an online Claim Form or as part of the validation process for a submitted claim.
