Grandparents want to book family holiday can now secure a free room at hotels in the UK, Ireland, France and Germany.
That’s because IHG Hotels & Resorts — with brands like Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza — rolled out a new grandparent-stay-free offer for 2022.
The offer allows families to book two rooms for a two-night stay at IHG hotels and receive the cheapest room for free.
There is also a generous travel date window between April 6th and July 15th, giving you ample opportunity to plan a getaway together for some well-deserved quality time.
You can already book the free rooms ihg.com/grandparents However, you must do so by April 20, when the offer ends (and it’s worth noting that rooms are subject to availability).

There are some terms and conditions; For example, Free Stay is based on booking two rooms under the same name, in the same hotel, and on the same dates.
IHG also says guests see a second-room fee when they book, but it’s reduced to zero upon check-in at the hotel.
IHG Hotels rolled out the new offering after research from the brand found that creating new family memories will be a top priority for more than half of grandparents in 2022.
In fact, as lockdown rules forced families to stay apart, nearly a third of post-pandemic grandparents admitted that the lack of hugs was one of the things they missed most when they weren’t seeing their loved ones.
dr Audrey Tang, a psychologist who has worked with the group, said: “For the past two years, we have been deprived of the wonderful element of connecting. Grandchildren are born, children grow, parents and grandparents have been limited to waving across online platforms. It was something, but it’s not the same as a true, personal connection in life.
“Lack of human physical contact can lead to lower levels of happiness, higher reports of depression and stress, but when restrictions are lifted, people can come together again to embrace life and each other, transform their environments, and create new memories and experiences as a family.”
