Hilton HHonors has launched a number of different airline-related promotions over recent weeks. 

I have written about the ones most relevant to a UK audience, including Virgin, BA and Luthansa Miles & More.  You will find the BA promotion and links to the others I’ve written about in this article.

The Virgin promotion remains the most interesting – you can get 15,000 Virgin Flying Club miles from just 5 Hilton stays.  The BA one offers a one-time bonus of up to 3,000 Avios for one stay, with the Avios you receive being based on your British Airways Executive Club status.

Good old Loyalty Traveler, the US hotel writer, has put together the definitive list of all 26 airline promotions that Hilton HHonors is running.

So, whatever airline you have some miles in, there is bound to be something for you.  If you have already done the Virgin and BA promos, which cap out after 6 stays, you may want to try one of the others – although on the face of it none are as generous as Virgin Atlantic Flying Club.

You can convert Virgin miles back into Hilton points so even if you don’t collect Virgin miles it may be worth signing up just for this promotion and crediting the miles back to Hilton HHonors at their 1:2 ratio.

Remember to keep an eye on our ‘Hotel Offers‘ page for the latest offers.

  • Snoozing-and-Loosing says:

    Can’t find any terms for the promotion that say the Hilton -> BA promotion is only “One-time”.

    • Raffles says:

      Yes I know. The T&C’s are rubbish. However, the main body of the text does say “stay once and …”. If it worked multiple times we would know about it by now as this has been running for a few weeks.
