InterCon offers 50pc savings


Middle East families and individual leisure travellers can take advantage of savings of 50 per cent or more at InterContinental Hotels and Resorts in the region and right around the world this summer.

Shop until you drop in Dubai, sip coffee beside the Nile in Cairo, or plunge into a pool on the Egyptian Red Sea Riviera, with some of the affordable discounted rates available until September 21 with the InterContinental 'Whole World Half Off' programme.

"The Whole World Half Off promotion proved to be a tremendous success last year and, due to demand, we have extended the duration of the promotion for 2003," said Denis Johnson vice-president, sales and marketing, Middle East and Africa, Six Continents Hotels.

"Following the introduction of our new range of service initiatives, including health clubs open 24 hours a day, and laundry services also available around the clock, businessmen, and holidaymakers, are getting a great deal more from their stays at InterContinental."

The InterContinental Whole World Half Off promotion is available seven days a week with prices starting from $38 per night at the Makkah InterContinental in Saudi Arabia.
