News in brief:
Hilton North America Flash Sale
Hilton has launched a 3-day Flash Sale covering North America. This will end at 5am (note am) UK time on Thursday 8th.
For bookings between 18th December and 2nd January, you will receive a 15% – 20% discount from Best Available Rate. These sale rates must be pre-paid and are non-refundable, however, so it isn’t a full 15% – 20% saving in reality. Conrad and Waldorf-Astoria hotels are offering a $20 discount instead.
This offer is only for Hilton Group properties in North America. The special Flash Sale website is here.
New Qatar Airways four day sale
Qatar Airways launched a new 4-day business class sale yesterday. This is valid for bookings by 8th December for travel until 30th November 2017, although some dates are blacked out. It is only valid for UK departures.
The offers from London are here. £1319 to Goa looks like the best deal although £1700-ish to South East Asia isn’t bad.
This sale appears to be UK focussed only. I think the real action will be held back from Qatar’s January sale but if you need to book something for the next few weeks the current ex-UK deal is worth pricing up.
Remember that you earn Avios and BA tier points on these fares – a return flight to Asia via Doha in Business will earn 560 tier points (140 x 4) which is 90% of a BA Silver card.
