News release placeholder

New Benefit Enhancement from IHG® Flexes with your Current Lifestyle – No Questions Asked

InterContinental® Ambassador, the exclusive member benefits program of InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts, is encouraging its members to embrace life’s exceptional and unexpected adventures by offering a new benefit that will provide greater flexibility when life calls. Beginning 14 Aug., InterContinental Ambassadors can take advantage of a once-per-lifetime extension of their annual membership—for up to six months—when their travel plans are interrupted, whether it’s starting a new job or welcoming a baby.

The InterContinental Ambassador program, an elevated tier of IHG® Rewards Club, connects the well-travelled to more than 200 InterContinental Hotels & Resorts worldwide, from the most emblematic historical landmarks, such as InterContinental Lyon – Hotel Dieu, to stunning resorts, including the soon-to-be-opened all-Club Intercontinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort. The membership program offers a range of exclusive benefits, including a complimentary weekend night, guaranteed room upgrade for every stay and exclusive access to private events. 

 

Brendon Elliot, Head of Luxury Loyalty Programs & Partnerships, commented: “The new membership extension gives our members one of the values they desire most—flexibility. Our ambition has always been to connect our members to new international destinations and support when and where life takes them. We have observed their ever-changing needs and are committed to enabling members to navigate life’s moments on their travel journey.”

 
To apply the extension, InterContinental Ambassadors simply visit the website and submit a request, selecting a membership extension option that fits their life and needs. Every member can request a two-month extension at any time, and members who have been a part of the program for at least two consecutive membership years are eligible for a six-month extension. 
 
The InterContinental Ambassador program is available for USD$200 or 40,000 IHG Rewards Club points annually. Visit https://www.intercontinental.com/amb-membership-extension for more information.
