IHG has launched a new promotion where you can save 50% off the Best Flexible Rate on some of its best hotels in the United Kingdom and across Europe — provided your plans don’t change.

Hotels will usually offer non-refundable rates slightly cheaper than their standard refundable rates. If you are confident enough that your plans won’t change to take the risk, you can save a small amount by booking a room you are locked into. With COVID-19 travel restrictions adding uncertainty to some destinations, IHG is now offering huge discounts if you are willing to book these non-refundable rates.

This generous offer applies to more than 300 IHG hotels across 25 countries, including numerous properties in the United Kingdom, which is great if you’re keen for a break but not quite ready to jump on a plane just yet. You’ll need to book before 24 August 2020 for a minimum two-night stay between by 30 April 2021.

If you’re keen on a domestic staycation, here is an example of how much you can save on some participating properties in the U.K. for a two-night weekend stay from 14 August to 16 August (prices correct as at the time of writing):

  • Hotel Indigo York — £77 per night;
  • Hotel Indigo Manchester Victoria — £43.75 per night;
  • Hotel Indigo Edinburgh Princes Street — £55 per night;
  • Voco Oxford Spires — £78.75 per night;
  • Kimpton Charlotte Square — £137 per night;
  • Crowne Plaza, Gerrards Cross — £57.50 per night; and
  • Hotel Indigo Kensington — £62.50 per night.

The offer also applies to properties in European countries currently considered safe to travel to, such as France, Italy, Malta and the Netherlands. There’s also currently no quarantine requirements on your return to the U.K. from these countries, though this is subject to change at any time, so keep this in mind if you are booking non-refundable accommodation.

To take advantage of this lucrative offer, book here until 24 August 2020. This offer is available to both IHG Rewards Club members and non-members.
