Summary

The hotel and resort properties which participate in PointBreaks are typically not exactly ones which would be the most popular — you could forget about booking a reservation at a hotel or resort property in Hawaii or the Maldives during the winter or holiday seasons, for example — but if they are located in destinations where you want or need to go, redeeming only 5,000 IHG Rewards Club points is difficult to beat. As an example, the Crowne Plaza Johannesburg – The Rosebank would normally cost a redemption of 20,000 IHG Rewards Club points — meaning that PointBreaks is a great way to save points on lodging reservations.

Please note that reward nights booked through PointBreaks may not be sold or used for commercial gains. Doing so is a program violation and may result in the freezing of your account; the forfeiture of all point transfers, rewards, vouchers, or merchandise issued pursuant to point redemptions; and any accrued points or miles in your account, as well as cancellation of the account and your future participation in the IHG Rewards Club frequent guest loyalty program.
