10 Ways To Book An InterContinental Hotel With A Discount


Book A Hotel

Would you like a discount on your next stay at an InterContinental hotel? We have some brilliant tips and insider information on how to get the best deal and the cheapest room at your favorite InterContinental.

We have several favorite InterContinental hotels, which include the InterContinental Park Lane, which interestingly offers free club lounge when booking with our luxury travel concierge.

InterContinental O2 is a great property in the East of London with views of the Thames and a great pool and Spa. The InterContinental in Paris and New York offers free club lounge when you book your stay via our concierge. Other InterContinentals across France are also great, including InterContinental Bordeaux, which has a great rooftop terrace.

Below we outline how to get the best deal or discount at InterContinental hotels.

1. Book With A Luxury Travel Agent For Extra Benefits

You can take advantage of free additional loyalty style benefits from your very first stay at InterContinental hotels and resorts by merely booking with our luxury travel concierge. It is that easy. Book with us, and you will benefit from our official InterContinental Hotels IHG® Lifestyle Exclusive partner agency benefits, which are added in for free.

Most luxury hotels have hidden travel agent loyalty programs that give you free benefits if you book with the right “Virtuoso” or hotel partner agent. We offer similar free upgrades, free breakfasts, and free perks at other luxury hotels, including Hilton’s Waldorf Astoria, Hyatt, Andaz, Ritz-Carlton, Marriott, InterContinental, and more.

2. Best Discount Available At InterContinental Hotels

Member rates are always a good deal, but remember to check with our luxury travel concierge as usually, our benefits are far more valuable than the cheaper rate offered by a member rate.

3. Join the IHG loyalty program

Join the IHG loyalty program and get loyalty points when you stay on top of all our complimentary benefits. This is a no-brainer, no-lose suggestion.

4. Book Early

I regularly recommend clients who book their stay with our luxury travel concierge to book as soon as the rates come out. It is not worth holding out for a last-minute discount as these magical discounts rarely exist at luxury hotels.

5. Book Discounted Advance Purchase Rates

If you are booking an InterContintnal hotel in advance and are very sure of your dates, you can take advantage of advance purchase discounted rates. This is one of the few ways to get you a cheaper room. You must be sure of your dates because there are no refunds on advance purchase rates once you have booked in, so if you can’t make your stay, you won’t get your money back!

6. Change Your Holiday Dates

Try re-arranging your dates and plan to target certain InterContinental hotels when they are cheapest and offer the best discounts. InterContinental hotels in cities are often used for business, so can be cheaper on weekends than during weekdays. You can arrange your plans around specific dates that you know your favorite InterContinental hotel is cheaper.

7. Look Out For New Properties

Brilliant new InterContinental hotels are opening all the time. Expect opening discounts to encourage you to book just after opening. This is a great way to stay at an InterContinental hotel for less.

8. Stay Shorter

It sounds obvious when you say it out loud, but I’d prefer three nights at a luxury InterContinental hotel rather than a week at a bog-standard cheap hotel. Do one night in Paris and take advantage of our early check-in / late check-out and free club lounge access rather than spending two nights somewhere less exciting.

9. Pick The Cheapest Properties

It doesn’t matter how luxury the InterContinental brand is. Some parts of the world are cheaper than others. Bali tends to be cheaper than London. This is not a discount; this is simply using common sense to book your vacation in a cheaper area of the world.

10. Use Corporate Promo Codes

There are special corporate promo discount codes, so if you are an employee of a company like Goldman Sachs, Bank Of America, IBM, or the government, you might be able to take advantage of these discounts, but these codes are not widely available to the general public and are not meant to be used on leisure stays.

In addition, the discount may not be as good as the free benefits offered by our luxury travel concierge. We suggest asking for a free quote so you can compare prices and benefits and get the full picture before booking.
