I'll cancel the nights at a coordinated time and you'll book them.

Unless you don't have IHG in which case we can still work something out.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Gotcha, sorry it's not going to work out for me. Hopefully someone can benefit.

Is it really that difficult to get IHG 50K point per night availability for the owb?

It's 50K IHG, plus cash? If yes how much? Just wondering for future planning

No cash.

Yes. Practically impossible to get consecutive nights.

Surprised we don't have any spontaneous DDF'ers here.

AJK did say he was looking into it ;)

It's not a spontaneous trip to MIA. It's a really long trip. You have to have the flight miles and the IHG, the ability for 2 people to take off work/school with just 10 days notice. A lot to go into this that even a spontaneous person might not be able to handle.

How did you get the nights? Did the thief do it for you and not have a chance to use them?

+1 Would be much easier for a single person to pull it off, but Borabora is for couples.

I'd be back by then, but alas, I can't take advantage right now.
