How can I earn frequent flyer points for my stays with InterContinental Hotels?

In order to earn frequent flyer points instead of IHG Rewards Club points, you need to change your reward preferences and link your account with your frequent flyer membership. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

  1. Log in to your IHG Rewards Club account via ihg.com.
  2. Go to “My Account” by clicking on your username in the top right-hand corner.
  3. Select “Account Status & Activity” from the toolbar. This will bring up a summary of your account.
  4. Click on “Earning Preferences”, then “Change Earning Preference”. This will take you to a new page.
  5. Select “Airline Miles” as your preference, choose your airline rewards program and enter your frequent flyer membership number and name.
  6. Click “Save changes” to complete the process.

If your frequent flyer program lists InterContinental Hotel Group properties under its hotel partners, you’ll need to follow these steps to earn points for your hotel stays. But remember to also weigh the cost of your stay against the reward earn rate and compare other options to find one that suits your travel needs.
