IHG Hotels & Resorts have announced a competition to celebrate the return of travel and mark the launch of their summer offerings.
The competition will give 52 lucky winners the chance to take a loved one away on one of 52 fabulous weekends, choosing from IHG’s properties, including InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, the brand new Kimpton Sydney Hotel, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts, voco Hotels, Hotel Indigo, Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express.
Whether it’s an anniversary celebration, indulging in the food, wine and culture in Hobart, celebrating a missed milestone birthday in the Hunter Valley vineyards or a girlfriend getaway complete with spa and shopping in Sydney, IHG has you covered across over 50 hotels in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.
“At IHG Hotels & Resorts, our teams connect people through travel and we’ve really missed making that happen over the last few months,” said Dean Jones Head of Commercial, Japan, Australasia, Pacific.
“With the launch of our summer campaign and having 52 weekends away on offer, we’re helping kick start the memorable experiences people have been waiting for – strengthening family bonds, celebrating milestone moments, uniting far-flung friends, forging business partnerships”.
To win one of 52 weekends, guests need to book with IHG Hotels & Resorts then nominate a special person in their life and in 25 words or less share why they would love to go on holiday with them.
After lengthy lockdowns in NSW and Victoria and ongoing border closures, a holiday has never been so well deserved. This summer, IHG Hotels & Resorts are making it easy for guests to book a much-anticipated getaway with all of the choice and flexibility of booking terms they need to feel confident to travel.
IHG are offering additional savings of up to 45%* on midweek stays and encouraging travellers to use up any stockpiled annual leave days, escape the crowds and even nab that highly sought-after restaurant booking.
The campaign and competition will be running from 14 October 2021 until 31 January 2022. Entrants need to be an existing IHG Rewards Member or register to become an IHG Rewards Member during the competition period. Prizes will be fulfilled by IHG Reward points gifted to winners.
