My current occupation as a freelance photographer and blogger allows me to travel all over the world (and I haven’t been to America yet!), for business or pleasure I view it as a pleasurable and invaluable experience, and I’m willing to take a chance at something totally worthwhile for my life and work opportunity.
It wasn’t long until after I returned to London from my business-holiday trip to Hong Kong this summer, IHG Rewards Club* has offered me an opportunity that I couldn’t resist and I was suffering post-holiday blues, who wouldn’t want another holiday! IHG Rewards Club has given me 289,000 points to tailor-made my own trip and experience, my immediate thought was I wanted to return to HK, my holiday there was incomplete due to work commitment. Using the rewards points to spend on any IHG partners, I was able to book a return flights from London to Hong Kong with Virgin Atlantic in combined with my frequent flyer air miles from Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, an overnight stay at Hotel Indigo** in Wan Chai, and three tickets to Disneyland HK with my lovely duo, Winnie Nip of Diamond Canopy from London who was visiting in HK at the same week as me, and the loveliest Sam Wong of Sam Is Home.
So what is IHG Rewards Club? IHG Rewards Club (part of the Intercontinental Hotels Group) is the first and largest hotel loyalty programme, with more 77 million members globally and it’s free to sign up. There are over 4,000 hotels worldwide, you then start earning points on your stays that convert to rewards club points, redeem points on flights, free nights at a hotel of your choice, and perhaps spend the points on a spa-cation for two!
Guess what? The IHG Rewards Club points does not expire!
Stay tuned for my next post on Hotel Indigo and the neighbourhood of Wan Chai.
* In collaboration with IHG Rewards Club, they provided me with points to use to create a unique experience.
**I stayed additional 2 nights at Hotel Indigo (with media rate) before returning to my family home in North Territories.
