40% off UK and European Hilton’s for public sector workers

Hilton has launched an attractive deal for UK residents who work in the public sector!

If you work in the public sector (and that is not defined, and in any case they do not seem to ask for ID) then you will save 40% on the best flexible rate at Hilton Group properties. That is NOT ‘up to 40%’, it is a guaranteed 40% saving. The only exception is the budget Hampton chain, where the discount is 20%.

The promotion is designed to run on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, although some hotels may load the rate for other nights as well.

HIlton 40 per cent

 You can find further details at this website.

To book, go to the main Hilton website and – on the first booking page where it asks for a city – click ‘Add Special Rate Code’ and enter promotional code PR11PN.  To see the list of participating UK and European hotels, go to this page and click the various tabs.

  1. Hi Raffles,
    Unfortunately, It seems the Hilton affiliate link doesn’t work (Firefox 19).

    • In what way? Do you mean it doesn’t take you through to the Hilton site? Or you don’t see any affiliate code (which you wouldn’t)? And do you mean the link above or the link in the sidebar to the right?

      I am not on a Firefox machine today so can’t test it until later. It certainly seems to be OK on the Mac I am sitting behind at the moment!

        The new window starts to load then almost immediately closes itself.

      • It doesn’t take me through the Hilton site, with either the link on the sidebar to the right or the one in your article(the main website)
        It works for me on Chrome using the same machine, so no biggy.

  2. Yep, on Safari the link appears broken (Website maintenance error) but hilton.co.uk is fine.

    This is a right PITA – my wife’s a nurse and just last weekend I booked for the Hilton at Gatwick on a pre-paid rate. We paid £118, this rate is £85 – grr….

    I see they even offer the suites on these rates although I guess given we’re all hard pressed in the private sector, someone must be able to afford them ;-)

    • All very odd. Especially I have used it this morning on an ipad and a Mac in Safari and all fine!

      It may been downtime at the affiliate site, because the link actually sends you to Affiliate Window who, so quickly you probably don’t notice it, redirect you to Hilton.

  3. All fine now, but it was at the time definitely showing a fault on the Hilton site not on the affiliate one.

    Aaaarrghh – misplaced apostrophe in title!!!

  5. Yep this is a good code – has been around for about a year now, I’ve used it a few times and been asked for ID on one occasion. Would totally agree with the advice to only use it for single stays if you don’t have public sector ID!

  6. Hi Raffles

    Do these stays qualify for HHonors points? I have used the airline rate often and they don’t. I can’t find anything in the T+C’s.

    Thanks for all the great tips

    • Should do. Airline rates are very deeply discounted and are not ‘public’ rates, most schemes refuse to count them.

    Great tip Raffles! Was able to grab (at short notice) two nights (Fri/Sat) at the Hilton London Paddington for £143.40 per night, including breakfast. Even better, as a rather sham HHonors Gold (courtesy of a long-since-cancelled Amex Platinum card), we got upgraded to an Executive Room, free water, free internet, lounge access etc. Can honestly say, this was the largest hotel room I’ve ever had in London – am more used to broom cupboards!

    And for those who may be curious: no proof of eligibility was requested or shown.
