InterContinental Ambadassor – get an extra free night

If like me you let your InterContinental Ambassador status lapse, it could be worth considering renewing if you are likely to do a stay before the end of August 2021. 

If you renew between 15 April -31 July  2021 and have one paid stay at any InterContinental, Kimpton, or Regent hotel before 31 August 2021, IHG Rewards members will get a free night reward certificate for hotels up to 40,000 points. You can use the certificate up until 30 November 2021. The type of hotels that you can book with 40,000 points varies dramatically from InterContintentals in some part of Asia and Europe such as Madrid to a Crowne Plaza in London. This page shows which IHG hotels are NOT 40,000 points or under.

Intercontinental Madrid

IHG Ambassador is a paid loyalty program that comes with a number of benefits. If you are planning to spend two nights in a pricey InterContinental over a weekend, it can work out a cheap way to do that and then keep the benefits the rest of the year. You get a free weekend night when you have another paid night on the same stay. The rates for the paid night can be higher than usual as they are fully flexible, so it’s worth doing your research before paying for Ambassador status. 12 months memberships costs $200. IHG® Rewards Club members may also purchase a membership for 40,000 points. 

  • Have a paid stay at any InterContinental, Kimpton, or Regent hotel after signing up before August 31, 2021.
  • Earn a free night award capped at 40,000 points that is valid until November 30, 2021.

The perks are:

  • Platinum Elite status in IHG® Rewards Club, and the corresponding Rewards Club benefits
  • Guaranteed one category room upgrade
  • Complimentary premium internet
  • Restaurants & bars credit of up to USD20 for every stay
  • Complimentary mineral water
  • Guaranteed extended 4pm check-out
  • Complimentary weekend night

BA to Singapore Club World from £1318 until November 2021

Singapore

Singapore has already made some steps to allow travel with special transit stays for businessmen wanting to have meetings. I would imagine that by autumn they could be considering opening up, even if it is just to vaccinated travellers. They are making reasonable progress with their own vaccination and have fully vaccinated around a sixth of their population so far.

There is a great offer from British Airways flying from Paris to Singapore via London. This trip would get you 400 tier points return, not including positioning flights. 

The offer is available as a BA Holidays deal which means you could secure the deal for a small deposit rather than paying all the money upfront. You can just add one night to the flight if you don’t want to book all your accommodation with BA. 

The €100 6 month stopover means that if you wanted to later, you could fly the first leg before 30 November and then continue the journey to Singapore up to 6 months later. For me, that was pricing at a bit over €100 extra, at around £1500.

The rules of the fare are:

  • Book by: 30 April 2021
  • Travel: by 30 November 2021
  • Minimum stay: a Saturday night
  • Maximum stay: 12 months
  • Stopovers: limited to 2 at €100.00 each and unlimited at €200.00 each a stopover may not exceed 6 months.
  • Refundable/Changeable: See BA’s Book With Confidence policy. 

You can book direct with British Airways here or find the cheapest online travel agent price with Skyscanner.

  1. In the BA / Singapore article:
    ‘ Singapore has already made some steps to allow travel with special transit stays for businessmen wanting to have meetings.’

    I assume it’s open to ‘businesswomen’ or businesspeople too, from an inclusive language perspective…:)
