For regular clientele, IHG offers what is now called the “InterContinental Ambassador” program, which works to reward and incentivise ambassadors to use more of the IHG facilities worldwide.
In this post, we will be looking at the benefits and advantages of being an InterContinental Ambassador, and also, we will be telling you all about how to join, if you think this is the perfect fit for you and something that would benefit you on your travels
9 ADVANTAGES OF BEING AN INTERCONTINENTAL AMBASSADOR
IT’S AN AFFORDABLE LUXURY
The IHG Ambassador program will cost you $200 a year, and $150 a year after your first initial 12 months.
This means that for just $0.41c a day, you will unlock the full experience and all the benefits that come with the InterContinental lifestyle.
That, along with the other advantages of being an InterContinental Ambassador (which we’ll list below) is already enough incentive to join us.
A GUARANTEED ROOM UPGRADE
Whenever you book as an Ambassador, you will also get a complimentary guaranteed room upgrade.
This is an another way for us to reward our Ambassadors and the frequent customers that make use of our hotel and activities.
COMPLIMENTARY FOOD & DRINKS IN YOUR ROOM
As an ambassador, you will also be receiving complimentary water bottles and fresh fruit to your room to welcome you in.
We can also offer you something savoury instead of fruit, so be sure to tell us what you prefer when you are checking in.
A “WELCOME GIFT” FROM IHG
You will also be getting a little gift from us to welcome you to our hotel. This usually is some sort of souvenir from the country you’re visiting, food delicacies, etc..
Just a little something to show you we appreciate your visit and to make your trip and stay much more enjoyable.
Check out is usually at 12 pm, but if you are an IHG ambassador; you get an additional 4 hours to enjoy your hotel room.
Yes, an ambassador, you are given a complimentary “extended checkout”, and you can check out at 4 pm instead of the usual 12 pm.
DEDICATED AMBASSADOR CHECK-IN AREA
To check in when you arrive, you do not have to wait in line. Across all the IHG hotels around the world, you will find a dedicated “Ambassador check in area” making sure you get served as soon as possible and to your hotel room in little to no time.
COMPLIMENTARY NEWSPAPER DELIVERED DAILY
An added, minor bonus of being an Ambassador is that you get the local paper delivered to your door every morning.
*Due to the rise of smartphones, you may find that some hotels have stopped offering this service.
A COMPLIMENTARY WEEKEND NIGHT STAY
IHG also offers you a free weekend night whenever you book with a check-in on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
This can be set up while you are making your booking online – this is a free complimentary night (at any IHG hotel) which you can use.
IS AMBASSADOR STATUS WORTH IT?
The IHG Ambassador program is obviously designed to reward the people that use IHG hotels more frequently than others, which may not be the case for everybody.
However, if you stay in an IHG hotel at least a couple of time per year, then this is definitely something that will benefit you and would be worth trying out.
