The InterContinental Hotels Group, or IHG, is a very popular hotel rewards program for frequent travelers. With almost 6,000 properties worldwide it’s an attractive portfolio for business travelers meaning many negotiate corporate rates in advance.

If you happen to be lucky enough to be associated with any of the partner organizations you should definitely plan on taking advantage of one of these perks. The discount can be sometimes be 10% – 30% off the regular nightly rate and will typically include perks like free wireless internet, parking, and breakfast.

Depending on where and when you travel there won’t always be availability but given it’s a major city you are almost always likely to find space.

Just because you find a corporate rate doesn’t always mean its the lowest rate the hotel has to offer. Be alert to compare the rate you find to the normal nightly price since there are times a corporate rate can be higher based on the corporations deal terms.

Use the steps below to see if you can receive a IHG discount on your next booking.

Who Is Eligible To Use Corporate Rates

This will vary by company but it’s not uncommon for full time employees, contract workers, consultants, or those affiliate with an organization to use a corporate rate. If you work for an organization on the list but are not aware if you are eligible seek out advice internally.

Often times if you are affiliated with an organization to obtain identification associating yourself with it that is usually enough for a hotel group to consider you eligible.

Locate your corporate rate

There is a high chance business travelers currently book hotels through a company portal or have a travel agent secure all reservations. With the corporate rate inserted on the backend a lot of times you may not even be aware of what your own companies code is.

Input discount code into IHG search

IGH makes it easy to search using a corporate discount. Simply navigate to the stay tab in the menu bar bar to begin your search. When you click to input “Destination” you will see a drop down appear that includes a section to input a “Corporate ID”. Make sure even when making your search you have your “Rate Preference” set to “Best Available”. This will make sure you don’t overpay for a corporate rate when the standard rate is cheaper.

As soon as you enter your rate and click “Search” all the results will be eligible for that rate.

Compare rates

As mentioned above corporate rates are considered “Special/Preferred Rates” and while they do usually provide discounts, they are actually not always the cheapest. There are a lot of reasons to why, but hotels may be running their own special deal making the standard rate lower than the corporate rate for a given night. We always recommend comparing your corporate rate to other promotions the hotel may be running directly.

In this example, the corporate rate is cheaper per night than the hotel’s direct “Best Flexible Rate”

What Is Included With A Corporate Rate

A corporate rate is not always just a discount in room price, they often come with additional perks. In our experience the most common additional benefits include free wifi, breakfast, and at times more flexible checkout.

Each property varies in what they offer business travelers so make sure you read the details before booking.

Present identification upon arrival

This part can may not always happen but according to several hotel group’s official policy, a hotel must check ID to confirm your rate upon check in. We found this to vary wildly based on location.

Acceptable forms of identification include

  • A badge or pass with the company name and picture
  • A business card that includes your name and company
  • An email address the hotel will confirm by sending you a confirmation

In our experience, hotels in Asia tend to check ID almost 100% of the time but in North America and Europe, it has been less than 10%.
