So, we have reached that time of year again where the loyalty programs roll out their scheme changes.

 

Like last year, IHG seems fairly mild, 400 hotels are changing which is about 10% of IHGs inventory with 200 going up and 200 going down. On the surface simply a readjustment addressing different redemption patterns.

 

Alas that's not the entire story as IHG has now created 2 new categories at 55,000 and 60,000 points, and although few properties have moved into these, they are IHGs most desirable locations in London, Paris and New York.

 

You can find the changes here:

You have until 17th February to book at current rates before this comes in.
