One of the best discounts available for some locations in Europe is the IHG 2-for-1 rate. Most hotels offer the 2-for-1 rates only for weekends, but some hotels offer the 2-for-1 rates on other days of the week. This is not always an easy rate to locate, but when you find a hotel offering 2-for-1 rates, the price is hard to beat.
Advance purchase rates may offer 20% to 30% off Best Flexible Rate. 2-for-1 is 50% off Best Flexible Rate. Another feature is some hotels offer several room categories including suites at 2-for-1 rates.
Here are sample nightly rates using 2-for-1 discount. These are prepaid and nonrefundable rates. Use caution when booking.
***** Europe Rate Discount offer high discounts, but these rates do not earn Priority Club points.
- 2-for-1 (select Partner 2-for-1 rate from drop-down menu)
- 2-for-1 rate BMW
- Save 35% Europe, Middle East and Africa weekend stays
- 3-for-2 (select Partner 3-for-2 rate from drop-down menu)
These rates are also available during the late December holiday period when it is possible to get 2-for-1 rates any days of the week at several hotels in some cities like London.
I did not see availability for 2-for-1 rates in Paris in several searches. Also, in the past I have found more room types available than in my searches for this post.
