Is it too hard to keep up with ever moving the world of Loyalty Programs and you are not sure what are the latest offers such as this? Don’t want to spend time analyzing stupid offers such as this:-
If we call an offer totally a non-offer, this would be it.
Well, it requires you to pay a lot of money to a certain chain of the hotel to help you build your status with them. Better the status you have with them, you are regarded as more privileged and given comparatively more VIP treatment.
With this program, you automatically get IHG Rewards Elite status.
I can’t put it into words how awesome it can be to hold a status with some of the programs. You always feel you got way more than you bargained. Normally it requires a lot of nights away from the hotel with a group of chain hotels.
Well, now there is a shortcut. You can directly pay upfront for your privilege and forget the hassle. IHG has this program called IHG ambassador program. A program that already pays for itself if you travel even once a year. This is for the people who don’t want to spend time collecting points and miles to get a distant day for vacation.
As soon as you sign up you get the following privileges:
- Priority Check-in
- Guaranteed Room Upgrade
- Early Check in and out – Subject to Availability
- Complimentary weekend night
- In-Room Gift
- Elite status in IHG rewards club
- 5000 bonus IHG pointsIf you are smart about your weekend night and spend it one of the cities such as Budapest, Singapore or some metro capital – Your night pays for the amount of the fees. I recommend booking three months in advance to make sure you get the best room.
Holding status with the hotel at times gets you things which you rarely have a chance of getting it as a non-status guest unless you specify that you are coming for certain occasion.
It is just $200 (Rs 13500). I recommend this for anyone who doesn’t want to get into know-how of travel geeks.
You also get 5000 bonus points which you can get one night stay at certain hotel with (Industry leading Pointsbreak offer)
