It is offering special deals at 300 hotels across Europe (including the UK), Middle East and Africa, but only at weekends. Many rooms are discounted by 30% (if you are a Hilton HHonors member) except for Hampton by Hilton hotels where the maximum discount is 15%.
The rates are valid for weekend stays until 29th January. You will also find that some hotels have loaded these rates for weekday stays.
As usual with Hilton sales, you need to take the ‘30% discount’ with a pinch of salt. This is based on the discount from ‘Best Available Rate’ for the same day. However, these sale rates require pre-payment and are non-refundable. A ‘Best Available Rate’ room is cancellable without charge.
There are some deals out there. I picked a couple at random – the first two based on hotels we have reviewed recently. All prices quoted include the extra discount for being an Hilton HHonors member:
Hilton Tallinn, 11-13 November (photo above)
€116 Flash Sale vs €145 Best Available Rate (no Advanced Purchase option shown)
Hilton Paris Opera, 09-11 December
€201 Flash Sale vs €269 Best Available Rate (no Advanced Purchase option shown)
Waldorf-Astoria Berlin, 26-28 October
€175 Flash Sale vs €250 Best Available (no Advanced Purchase option shown)
If you have any weekends away planned between now and 29th January, you should take a look at these offers to see if there is anything of interest. The ‘flash sale’ website is here.
How to earn Hilton Honors points and status from UK credit cards (September 2021)
There are various ways of earning Hilton Honors points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses.
Do you know that holders of The Platinum Card from American Express receive FREE Hilton Honors Gold status for as long as they hold the card? It also comes with Marriott Bonvoy Gold, Radisson Rewards Gold and MeliaRewards Gold status. We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here and you can apply here.
The Platinum Card comes with a limited time bonus of 60,000 Amex points (converts to 120,000 Hilton Honors points) until 2nd November 2021.
Did you know that the Virgin Atlantic credit cards are a great way of earning Hilton Honors points? Two Virgin Points can be converted into three Hilton Honors points. The Virgin Atlantic cards are the only Visa or Mastercard products in the UK which can indirectly earn Hilton Honors points. You can apply here.
You can also earn Hilton Honors points indirectly via American Express Gold, the American Express Rewards Credit Card and – for small business owners – American Express Business Gold and Business Platinum.
