Hilton has launched its Summer Sale, offering discounts of up to 33% off the Best Available Rate for hotels in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
These rates are valid:
Until 30 September, weekends only, for the UK and Europe (some hotels have weekday availability in August)
Until 5 October, every day, for the Middle East and Africa
Rates are non-refundable
I ran an example based on the Conrad Algarve, photo above. This is the sort of resort property which I wouldn’t expect to be offering much of a deal in this sale as it should be busy in Summer.
For a week in August – 9th to the 16th – the sale rate is €307 per night. This is a substantial discount to the current €373 per night Advanced Purchase rate.
For a weekend in Prague in late July, the sale rate at the Old Town property is 2,747k compared to 3,300k per night for Advanced Purchase.
Based on this non-scientific sample, you may well be able to find some decent deals here.
