IHG hat die Best Price Garantie umgebracht. Statt einer kostenlosen Nacht gibt es nur mehr Punkte …

Keine guten News. IHG hat die Best Price Garantie umgestellt. Statt einer kostenlosen Nacht bekommt man jetzt die gesammelten Punkte multipliziert mit dem Faktor 5 bis zu einer Höchstsumme von 40 000 Punkten.

Die neuen Bedingungen:

“The Best Price Guarantee program (“Program”) is offered by Six Continents Hotels, Inc., an InterContinental Hotels Group company (“IHG”), and these terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) describe the Program.  By filing a claim or otherwise seeking to take advantage of the Program, you agree to these Terms and Conditions.  Employees of any InterContinental Hotels Group company or employees at any IHG branded hotel are not eligible for the Program.
The Best Price Guarantee Program is not applicable to hotels in Mainland China, Macau, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
1. Under the Program (as further described below), if you book a hotel room at an IHG branded hotel using any IHG direct channel (such as a branded website, call center or the mobile app), and within 24 hours of making your reservation you find a lower rate online for the same hotel room, number of guests, and reservation dates, and submit a qualified guarantee claim form, we’ll match the lower rate and give you 5X the IHG® Rewards Club points, up to a 40,000-point maximum,  for the room rate for that hotel stay. “

Die Berechnung des Faktor 5:

“If we can verify your claim, we will adjust the rate on the reservation you booked through an IHG direct channel to the lower average nightly rate found on the non-IHG website at the time of verification, and award 5X (5 times) the IHG Rewards Club points for your room rate (the “5X Points Award”), up to a 40,000-point maximum.
10. The 5X Points Award will be calculated on the room rate only, and will not include any other charges billed to your hotel room portfolio. To receive the 5X Points Award, your IHG Rewards Club number must be added to your reservation before check-out at the hotel.  IHG Rewards Club Members with a miles earning preference will earn Points.”

Die Best Price Garantie ist damit vollkommen tot. Kostenlose Nächte gibt es aber jetzt keine mehr. Auch die Claims mit den Suiten oder sehr teuren Hotels machen eigentlich überhaupt keinen Sinn.

Danke einem netten Leser!
