I have some Intercontinental Hotel points that I bought on a pay for 1 get 2 deal, which were used on a hotel booking in 2020 but was subsequently cancelled due to Covid. These will expire Jan 22.

Does that mean I can use them for a hotel stay after Jan 2022 as long as I book the room before the expiration date?

Also, does the booking have to be for me or can I book a family member?

Thanks for your help.

IHG points only expire after 12 months of account inactivity. Earn or redeem at least 1 point and they'll tick over for another 12 months.

But to answer your question, you would just need to redeem the points before they expire - that could be for a later stay.

Yes, you can use the points to book a hotel for someone else.
