And the folks at IHG gave us a sneak peak into a few of the hotels that will be included on the PointBreaks list they’re releasing October 31, 2016.

On October 31, 2016, IHG will release their newest IHG PointBreaks list.  It’s valid for stays through January 31, 2017.

In the meantime, I wanted to share a few interesting hotels that we know will be included on the list.  And remind you that using the IHG Points & Cash trickthese rooms are only ~$35!  Or ~$30 using this version of the trick.

1.    Holiday Inn Salerno – Cava de’ Tierreni, Italy

This hotel gets excellent reviews on TripAdvisor, and rooms here normally cost ~$95 per night.  So if you’re planning a trip to Pompeii, or traveling to the picturesque Amalfi Coast, this could be a great option for you!

2.   InterContinental Cali, Colombia

Folks especially like the breakfast and pool at this hotel.  And rooms usually cost ~$130 or 25,000 IHG points per night.  So you could save a lot of money & points booking a PointBreaks rate here!

Save 20,000 IHG Points Per Night at the InterContinental Cali in Colombia on Stays Through January 31, 2017

3.   Holiday Inn Sandton – Rivonia Road, Johannesburg, South Africa

Headed to South Africa?  Consider the Holiday Inn Sandton in Johannesburg.  Folks on TripAdvisor report it’s great for business travelers, and love the comfortable beds and friendly staff.

With rooms costing ~$115 per night, you’d definitely save money with the PointBreaks deal!

And lastly, a few more PointBreaks hotels that will be available to book October 31, 2016:

Bottom Line

On October 31, 2016, IHG will release the latest list of PointBreaks hotels.  These can be booked for just 5,000 IHG points through January 31, 2017.

But be prepared to book fast, because the best hotels won’t last!  Because PointBreaks hotels are an excellent deal if you can find one that fits into your travel plans!

What time does it usually go live on the website? I have a few hotels in mind that I really want to try for.

Unfortunately there’s no standard time, but they’re usually bookable sometime before noon. And we’ll let you know when the list is live!

You can book as many consecutive nights you want (or tgey have) but only at up to two hotels. I did 7 nights at one in August.

Thank you, Erika.


Due to the limited availability, each member may only book two PointBreaks® Reward Nights reservations per hotel during the special offer time period. Offer and participating hotels are subject to change at any time, valid for booking through October 31, 2016. All other Reward Night terms and conditions apply.

Thanks. I was waiting for this one. What is the policy to book PB hotels? How many rooms ans nights can you book per account?
