Book Now: IHG PointBreaks available through July 2018

Earlier this year, IHG Rewards Club announced that they are revamping IHG PointBreaks and introduced three redemption tiers. Select hotels under PointBreaks are now available for 5K/10K/15K IHG Rewards Club points for stays, which is a huge discount as compared to their full redemption prices. The new IHG Point Breaks 2018 list is out now, for the quarter May through July 2018.

The new IHG PointBreaks list is now live for booking at has about 200 hotels are participating. The list has hotels participating mostly in the US. However, there is one hotel in India and a number of then located close by in Oman, Singapore and Thailand. These hotels are open for stays until July 31, 2018, so definitely a good time to plan summer travels. The nicer hotels do sell out quickly as there are a limited number of rooms available under PointBreaks, so if you like a hotel make sure to book it quickly.

Points + Cash booking is now available

Until 2017, PointBreaks hotels were priced at 5K points per night and could be only booked for points. Though now hotels that cost 10k and 15k points per night can be redeemed for points plus cash. The cash component will differ for each hotel so you’ll need to check the price for each hotel.

The one thing you should keep in mind while booking hotels under IHG PointBreaks is that each member can only make two PointBreaks reservations at one hotel, although there is no restriction on the number of days a stay can be booked for.

Here’s the full list of hotels participating:

For 5,000 points


For 10,000 IHG Points

For 15,000 IHG Points


I’m not happy to see that there’s only Holiday Inn participating in Chennai. Though there are a few good hotels like the Intercontinental in Oman and the centrally located Holiday Inn in Singapore. In case you are looking to book any hotel under IHG PointBreaks and falling short of points you can always purchase IHG points at 80% bonus.
