Handpicked Holidays by IHG® launches home of all-inclusive packages in time for festive season

December 7, 2020 Hotel Deals No Comments

IHG® Hotels & Resorts – one of the largest hotel companies in the world – has unveiled the launch of Handpicked Holidays by IHG®: a new platform home to all-inclusive packages created exclusively for IHG Rewards Club loyalty members.

Launching with 14 packages across Australia and New Zealand’s most loved destinations, each offer has been designed to balance exceptional value and thoughtful perks, representing significant savings and made exclusive to the Handpicked Holidays platform. The all-inclusive design means guests can book their holidays as a complete experience including two-to-three nights’ accommodation, daily restaurant and bars experiences, and perks ranging from room upgrades and luxury catamaran transfers at InterContinental Hayman Island Resort to rounds of golf and a half-day wine tour at Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley.

IHG’s commitment to flexibility and cleanliness underpins each package, with guests able to change their travel dates up to 24 hours prior to arrival*. Guests can also purchase as a voucher to gift ahead of the holiday season, or choose to travel when they’re ready. The IHG Way of Clean program is rolled out across each hotel and resort, offering confidence and assurance for a safe stay with new, science-led protocols and service measures in partnership with industry leading experts Cleveland Clinic, Ecolab and Diversey.

The launch of Handpicked Holidays by IHG is the latest offering for IHG Rewards Club members, accentuating the recognition and exclusive benefits as a loyalty member. In November IHG tied the knot with Mr & Mrs Smith, adding over 400 handpicked luxury and lifestyle Mr & Mrs Smith hotels available to book.

*Subject to availability. All Handpicked Holidays by IHG packages are valid for stay dates until 30 June 2021 and available until sold out. Full terms and conditions can be found here.
