Friends & Family Discount links to use for stays @ InterContinental-Hotel Groups- Holiday Express inn ICrowne Plaza / Holiday Inn. ** No personal referral links **

The link is for the InterContinental Hotels Group in 1st post.
The employees link is available to freely use,as it's certainly the best marketing ploy they came up with,and this is why it is still going (3 years now ) and being used throughout the internet world, you can google about this, just incase your worried about booking,more info etc in 1st post.

Worked for me many times and others.Facebook IHG REWARDS is your friend for info on naming a friend on your voucher.

That's strange,when I posted before Andywedge moved it to vouchers.lol as I wasn't sure we're to put it,as you need to print out a voucher to take with you oh well as long as it helps.

You could always try printing out the lower price and take it with you as they say

"We’re so confident in our prices that we’re standing by them with our Best Price Guarantee. Find our rooms for a lower price elsewhere and your first night is free."

nice one

I've been using this for years no problems and freely advertised onm their Facebook pages

Checked their terms, don't think it will work this time. But I have saved the link as I've stayed at a few of their hotels so will always come in useful for furture stays! Just wish I'd found ths 12 months ago, forget £20 would have saved me a small fortune oO

Good link too,as in 1st post,always compare prices

credit to hotscot on a usefull find that will benefit many.just one point to be aware of bookings via hotscots employee link accrue no priority club points whilst bookings via the green room link are rewarded priority club points

Been using this for a while, would have posted but I thought it might jepordise my future stays if more folks used it..

Is this taking the p**? £214 for a night on 9 th march in holiday inn express bath!!!
Can anyone find a deal for Bristol same night as this is taking the mick? Thanks

Don't forget though that you might be asked some mild prodding and questions at the desk about which employee you know etc etc so this deal not for those that get easily flustered or panicked while under questioning.

Same here, checked a number of dates and RAC link cheaper, used it loads last year. Log into TCB or quidco, click through their holiday inn link. Then once on the HI website, paste the RAC URL into the address bar. I get cashback every time.

Thankn...

Very good of the people who've posted here to let us know they've known about this for ages, but didn't want to post it because it might "jepordise my future stays".

Hope you choke enjoying your next lager deal.

All well and good...but is there really a need to make a post to tell us. Keep it to yourself and get lost or be decent and post a deal.

Any advice on what we should say or should we thourougherly stalk a holiday inn employee first?
Edited by: "Saintledger" 14th Jan 2013

Say it's none of your business and tell them to jog on

Thanks, will try this out at some point.

The risk is, of course, that you do the cheap deal online, and think you've got a bargain.

Then you turn up at the hotel some time later, it turns out there's no connection between you and the IHG employee, and you end up paying the much higher full rate chargeable on the day.

Could be a very expensive gamble.

Personally I always go for this: greenroom.co.uk/alumni
- 35% off or 241
- Quidco and Priority Points always work

As an ex employee of a intercontinental hotel I can confirm that this doesn't always work.

The hotel I used to work; the receptionists were told they had to check the voucher.

However most will probably turn a blind eye.

That's the general opinion on FT, Too many times have people worked hard to get deals for people that spend their lives travelling, making their lives a little easier and more bearable, only for it to get closed with overexposure. Companies seem to turn a blind eye to these loopholes, as it pretty much guarantees new business from frequent travellers.

Sally booking a long weekend in the West End is a one off. A large influx of one off bookings forces the loophole closed almost every time. And the person that shared their Discount is disciplined and doesn't do it again...

I can see the discounts area of FT becoming like the mileage run area, protected from new members "discovering" these deals and sharing offsite with ridiculous riddles and code words that only frequent travellers will understand.

If people needed these deals, they are freely available to find on FT. They don't need to be spoonfed here.

FT? But I take your point entirely. HUKD exposure has wrecked many a good deal (because it's been withdrawn soon afterwards) and you post at the risk of losing the deal for everybody.

This will probably go the same way, and could well end up costing those who get caught out a lot of money when the special rate's declined at the hotel.

If this did happen (which is so highly unlikely it's not), then I would thank my friend who is a friend-of-a-work-colleague for letting me use her employee discount around the world.

Australia, Boston, Cape Cod (a week), Toronto and Montreal in the last couple of years. In addition to a number we've stayed in in the UK (Last one was Chester racecourse IIRC).

I've never been asked about the employee I know and as someone pointed out, they put these links on their own facebook page all the time.

Oh and just to add, there are a finite number of rooms at each hotel you can use this on. I have no idea of the number, but just in case you find that you put the link in and can find better deals using hotels.com etc.

This has been posted on here for 2years now,into the 3rd year. I found this through google which led me too Flyertalk,whom I'm a member of,which is why I linked it to FT as a very helpful site for any travellers.
The old thread kept getting expired,so this is just to remind and share.

Would save around £40 on a three day trip to Orlando but i think i might give it a miss. As you say there's always the risk of getting caught short and having t pay a hell of a lot more.

If it was just me going I'd jump at it but as it' with someone else I'd fear for my own safety if it didn't work out ;p

If any of you work in the public sector you will have another code to use which is much much better ;-)

I've been using this for a while, it's a really good deal

People "travelling around the world frequently" are generally on very good salaries. How does this make their lives a little bit more bearable?

Your comment is downright ridiculous and stinks of that secretive bullcrap, we all want to save money....

I suspect you actually believe the rubbish your spouting so I'll leave it there but you want to have a think about what you're actually saying and stop kidding yourself, that your thoughts are some kind of virtuous light of goodness, cos they damn well aren't.

Oh dear

I agree Robert, people travelling around the world could very well be on "very good salaries". I did not specify location. Here is a hypothetical scenario
John is a contractor who lives in Southampton. He spends most of his time away from home. This week, he commuted to Glasgow from Monday to Friday and went home to his family for the weekend. Johns contract with his client gives him a £60 allowance for accommodation per night. This limits him to a Travelodge or a B&B. With this "deal", John is able to spend the week in somewhere he is likely to meet others working away and share a drink and conversation. With this deal closed he is back at the Premier Inn, devoid of any life or personality. How very depressing.

My comment may be ridiculous to you, and I agree "we all want to save money". But can you not at least put a little bit of work in to saving this money? As I commented above, these deals are not hard to find if you need them.

I do believe the "rubbish I am spouting", because I have seen it happen countless times over the years and many people now resort to private messaging and emails to avoid it happening in future. This means even those who need these deals and are willing to search for them, are no longer able to find them. I certainly do not believe that my thoughts are a "virtuous kind of goodness" - that seems a little dramatic... and I certainly did not expect my opinion to be a popular one on this forum.

I am going to make an assumption, so please correct me if I am wrong. You do not travel for a living. You sleep in your own bed almost every night of the week. You have no idea the difference that a nice hotel to spend your free time can make, when everyone you know and love is hundreds of miles away.

Newbold, FT = Flyertalk.

Anyone who booked using this link be prepared to have to pay the full room rate for your stay when you arrive at the hotel.
