Free night awards
Redeeming Choice Hotels UK points for free nights will give you around 0.4p on average, but it's possible to get more or less value depending on the hotel. For example, I was able to get 0.52p in value making a booking at the Clarion Collection Hotel St. Albans City Centre.
It's also easy to come across low value if you're not careful.
The Comfort Inn Victoria in London for example has a base price of £53 plus taxes, but can still cost as much as 20,000 per night. This redemption would give your points a low value of 0.28p.
When it comes to redeeming Choice Points, you'll want to compare the cost in cash and the cost in points in order to find which properties in any given area is offering the best bang for your point.
Choice doesn't have a redemption chart or any kind of (known) order to their pricing, so you will not know the value of your points until you start comparing prices and running the numbers.
On top of that, the reward costs for hotels will occasionally fluctuate. A hotel that you're looking at now could be 16,000 points today and 20,000 points tomorrow.
