Last call: Hilton ‘Winter Weekends’ flash sale ends at midnight

This is a quick reminder that the 7-day Hilton flash sale which is currently running will end at midnight tonight (Sunday).

It covers Europe and the Middle East, with a smattering of Africa, and offers decent discounts on weekend stays until 31st January 2015.

The special website for the flash sale is here.

As well as the current Virgin Atlantic and British Airways miles promotions with Hilton, I also wrote this week about a weekend promotion with Lufthansa Miles & More.  This gives you 1,500 Miles & More miles per weekend NIGHT until 15th December.  This could work very nicely in conjunction with a sale rate.

If you have any European or UK weekend breaks lined up before the end of January, it is worth a look at the Hilton site to see if any good deals are about.
