With the offer, IHG (which operates Holiday Inn, InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Staybridge Suites, and Hotel Indigo properties) will pay up to $850 of a guests checked baggage fees on any airline September 1 through December 30 under a few conditions, of course.
To snag the reimbursement, customers need to book two consecutive weekend nights at any one of IHGs 4,600 properties, pay for the stay with a Visa card, and save baggage fee receipts and flight documentation, to prove that the travel dates matched up with the hotel stay. Each weekend trip is eligible for a $50 rebate (which covers the $25-per-trip baggage fee that many major carriers charge), and guests can claim the rebate as many weekends theyd like while the deal is valid (up to $850 total).
Although $50 is a small rebate in the grand scheme of most hotel stays, this deal certainly generates a bit of goodwill for IHG and eliminates a pesky incidental cost that many travelers overlook before takeoff. Plus, the offer lasts through the holidays, when most travelers could certainly put an extra $50 to good use.
