The transfer rate for IHG Points varies depending on the partner, but the most common transfer rate is 10,000 IHG Points for 2,000 airline miles which can be simplified to 1 airline mile for every 5 IHG Points you transfer.

With base points, elite status points, and credit card points, you can earn up to a max of 30 IHG Points per $1 spent at IHG hotels. That's a total of 6 airline miles with most of IHG's transfer partners which can be well worth it for those who frequent IHG properties.

How To Transfer IHG Points

Unfortunately, IHG Points cannot be transferred to their partners online. You'll have to call the IHG Rewards Club Service center to transfer your points.

Once the transfer has been initiated, it can take at least 2-3 weeks to be deposited into the receiving program. This is not the fastest process, so if you're trying to transfer IHG Points you'll want to make sure to note the time it takes.

Are Transferring IHG Points Worth It?

This will all come down to how much you value IHG Points. If you don't plan on using the IHG Points to stay at IHG brand hotels, transferring your points can be worth it since they'll just be collecting dust.

If you do use IHG Points and redeem them for good value (as in around 0.6 cents per point), then transferring your points to airline partners will usually cause you to lose value.

This is because 10 IHG Points has an average value of $0.60 cents whereas the 1 airline mile you'll receive when transferring will range from 1 cent to 3 cents in value depending on the redemption.

With the exception of Marriott, transferring hotel rewards points to partners is usually not worth it, but that's not to say that it isn't a solid option if you really need to top off your account in another program.

Summary

The IHG Rewards Program provides an easy way for you to top off your favorite frequent flyer accounts. While this is a free and easy route to take, be sure to note that it can take weeks for the actual transfer to complete so you'll want to plan ahead.
