A reader mentioned this offer in an email to me last week and, as some people may have never seen it before, I thought it was worth another outing.
Hilton has a very attractive discount code for UK residents who work in the public sector.
If you work in the public sector then you will save 30% on the best flexible rate at many Hilton Group properties. That is NOT ‘up to 30%’, it is a guaranteed 30% saving. The only exception is the budget Hampton chain, where the discount is 20%.
(The discount will be smaller than 30% if you compare it to the Advanced Purchase rate of course – but it should still be lower.)
The promotion is designed to run on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, although some hotels may load the rate for other nights as well.
The Hilton definition of ‘public sector’ is ‘organisations that have a direct report to a UK Government Ministry (including the Welsh, Scottish and Northern Ireland Assemblies), are entirely funded by UK Tax Payers’ money, are non-profit making and operate entirely for the public interest and have no commercial interests whatsoever.’
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 Hilton promotional code PR11PN. Not all hotels participate but many do.
At present, because of the current Hilton sale, the discounts are not as strong as they often are. As an example, for 16th-18th September, when I do actually need to be in Sheffield, the Hilton is £65 per night and includes breakfast. You can get an identical rate in the Hilton sale. Once the current promotion ends, however, this will become a valuable addition to your booking arsenal again.
