IHG® Rewards

Our goal is simple, yet innovative. We want to help you earn as much as possible, as often as possible. Earn when you travel. Earn when you shop. Earn every time you spend. For us, it’s all about you.

The IHG® Rewards is one of the world’s most extensive and most popular loyalty programs. More than 5,000 InterContinental Hotels Group hotels are covered by the card. The card is free and can be obtained, for instance, by joining the Club at any of Finland’s Holiday Inn hotels or at the Crowne Plaza Helsinki. Alternatively, the IHG REwards can be joined online at www.ihg.com/rewardsclub

When joining, the customer selects the target for point collection; either IHG Rewards points or miles with the airline of choice. Finnair is one of more than 30 airlines covered by the card. Accumulated points and miles can be redeemed for hotel nights, flights, hotel services, etc. For more information, see www.ihg.com/rewardsclub.

New benefits

  • All Members of the IHG Rewards will enjoy free internet access from the beginning of 2014
  • A faster track to the Elite level – when staying in at least three different IHG brands, the GOLD level is reached after only 10 nights, rather than 15 nights
  • Reward Nights also count towards Elite membership status
  • Starting in July, a Platinum level Member’s nights in excess of 50 nights are credited to the coming year’s balance

Please note that to get Finnair Plus points from the InterContinental Hotels Group hotels (InterContinental Hotels and Resorts, Crowne Plaza Hotels and Resorts, Hotel Indigo, Holiday Inn Hotels and Resorts, Holiday Inn Express, Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites), you must first join the IHG Rewards on the internet (when you’ve joined, in the Earnings Preference section select Finnair and feed in your Finnair Plus card number) or at any IHG Rewards hotel. When staying at the Group’s hotels, show your IHG Rewards card, not your Finnair Plus card. Read more here.

Any Hotel, Anywhere Card

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) launched the unique Any Hotel, Anywhere Card at the beginning of September 2007. Now, the first in the hotel industry, Members of the IHG Rewards can freely select the hotel of their choice from among more than 500,000 hotels – even from among competitor hotels.

Any Hotel, Anywhere Card can be redeemed with IHG Rewards points, and it can be used to pay for nights all over the world in hotels that accept the American Express credit card as payment. The Any Hotel, Anywhere Card isn’t a credit card, it’s a prepaid stored value card pre-loaded with the sum, in euros, that corresponds to the bonus points. The cards can be used for payment at hotels that accept the American Express credit card as payment.
