Hilton launches ‘See The World’ week-long hotel flash sale with discounts of up to 35%

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Hilton is running three flash sales this week with discounts of up to 35%.

Confusingly there are different stay dates for each part of the world, although the one thing that is fixed is that you must book by 19th March.

This is what is on offer.  You need to be a Hilton Honors members to get the full discount listed below but that is unlikely to be a problem for HfP readers, and in any event it is free to join via

Remember that many American Express cardholders have a new offer of £50 cashback on £250 of spend at selected hotels in Europe – click here for details.  This should combine with the sale.

UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa

Save 25% on Best Available Rate at Conrad, Waldorf Astoria, DoubleTree, Hilton, Canopy and Curio.  A smaller discount of 15% off Best Available Rate is available at Hampton and Hilton Garden Inn.

You must stay between 16th March and 31st August.  Three day advanced purchase required.

US, Canada and Latin America

Save 20% on Best Available Rate, except at Conrad and Waldorf Astoria where a lower 15% discount is available.

You must stay between 25th March and 9th September.  Three day advanced purchase required.

South East Asia and Australasia

Save 35% on Best Available Rate or Bed & Breakfast rates.

You must stay between 18th March and 31st December.  Five day advanced purchase required. 

Remember that rooms booked under this offer are non-refundable.  This means that, whilst it is correct to say that the discount is based on Best Flexible Rate, this is not your actual saving.  Non-refundable rooms are generally 10% cheaper than Best Flexible Rate so the genuine sale discount is probably around 10% – 25%.

At the time of writing, the South East Asia and Australasia sale is already live – you can book here.

UK, Europe, Middle East, Africa, US, Canada and Latin America rooms can be booked via the this page.

Don’t forget the current Hilton Honors bonus offer

The sale will combine with the current Hilton Honors promotion for 2,000 bonus points per stay plus an extra 10,000 points if you can manage five stays and for every 5th stay thereafter.

This is valid for stays until 30th April.  The main Head for Points article and registration link is here.

If you collect Lufthansa miles, see this article for an excellent Miles & More bonus offer which works alongside the 2,000 bonus points deal if you change your earnings setting to ‘points and miles’.  It ends on 25th March.

  • Axer99 says:

    I don’t think it will combine with my amex offer since the teens and conditions of that seem to mean it cannot be prepaid online .

    • John says:

      Except in the US, Amex has no way of knowing whether you prepaid online since the transactions are all processed at the hotel’s front desk anyway.

    • Crafty says:

      It worked last time. Can’t guarantee anything but personally I’m going to assume the setup will be the same.

  • Sam G says:

    @ 4.54am looks like the Asia page is up but rates not loaded – checked a few hotels

  • David says:

    Just looking at Australia – doesn’t look like the deals have been loaded yet. According to the T&Cs, the deals go live at 8am UK time.

  • Craig Strickland says:

    Do all hotels charge immediately for this offer, it might be worth me risking the Amex offer triggering? I have 2 nights in London in July to take me to six of eight over three months which I will probably turn into a status match.

    • John says:

      It’s entirely up the hotel as they charge you manually, except for prepaid stays in the US.

      • Rob says:

        I have experience of this, with the hotel ‘doing you a favour’ by not charging until the day you arrive and so costing me a bonus.

        • Craig Strickland says:

          That’s jolly decent of them!

        • Jamie says:

          I’m thinking of booking Hilton Berlin (outside Amex offer dates) but as it’s a pre pay I’m hoping it may trigger the Amex offer. In the past though from memory I think I’ve had the same experience with the big hotel chains and not been charged until the day I’ve arrived. If the hotel does take the payment I wonder if the offer will be triggered regardless of dates?

          • Rob says:

            All based on the day payment is taken. By the way, review of the excellent Berlin Marriott tomorrow.

        • Craig Strickland says:

          I booked a night at the Doubletree Liverpool a few months ago and that was charged when I booked. I have another in Mumbai and that hasn’t been. I have 2 flexible nights booked already, just deciding whether to take the ‘gamble’.

        • Save East Coast Rewards says:

          In my experience that’s easily solved just call up the hotel and tell them you’d like them to take payment now. I’ve done that a couple of times.

        • Danny says:

          I always emailed the hotel direct and ask them to take the payment if no payment has been taken within 7 days of booking and they always obliged 🙂

        • Yuff says:

          I’ve done the same, they normally take payment immediately 😉

  • a270 says:

    Looking at staying in Singapore from 1st-2nd April but saying my dates are not eligible for this rate although clearly the dates are not blackout dates. Tried both Conrad and Hilton Garden Inn.

  • Stu P. says:

    O/T Melia Rewards can now be allocated to BAEC. Was not able to select them as a partner over the weekend but seems to work now.

  • Paul says:

    Good luck to anyone who benefits from this sale however in my view this sale is not a sale. I hesitate to use other adjectives.
    Hotels I have bee researching for some week rocketed late last week across the board and surprise surprise are now lower than the exhorbitant levels they went to late last week. They are still higher than before this “Fladh Sale” was so well trailed and publicised last week.


    • Dale says:

      Can’t agree, I’ve been looking at Hiltons in Atlanta for a couple of months for June, and they are reduced across the board in this sale by the advertised %. You should always look at the bottom line and compare with similar properties. There’s some great value here.

  • Craig Strickland says:

    Does anyone have any experience of treatment for Gold/Diamond at Conrad St James?

    • Rob says:

      Lounge is excellent so as a Diamond with guaranteed access you’re sorted.

      • Craig Strickland says:

        Thanks, it’s only £25 more than the flexible I have for the DT Westminster. Here’s hoping that Hilton will status match me again when I request in May.

      • New Card says:

        Is lounge access not guaranteed for Gold too? I had thought it was (I have a stay there next week…)

        • LB says:

          Breakfast is guaranteed for Gold but not lounge access.

        • Rob says:

          You’re thinking of Marriott Gold possibly which is the only mid tier (if you call 50 nights mid tier) to give lounge access.

        • New Card says:

          Ah I see – thanks everyone. I think I was thinking of Marriott Gold. Better keep my fingers crossed for a room upgrade then…

      • John says:

        Excellent if you enjoy the bunker feel. Zero natural light, zero view.

        • Rob says:

          Given the location that is to be expected though, same goes for most of the rooms.

    • Olly says:

      Very nice hotel and agree with Rob re:exec lounge.We were there on Hilton CC voucher night and the room we were given was a quite spacious exec room, for London.

    • KevMc says:

      I was there for 2 weekend nights a month ago – we used 2 free Hilton Barclaycard certificate nights, and both of us are Gold (via Amex). We were given a room on the Exec floor with lounge access for the weekend, as well as the free breakfast (which we thought was delicious). There is a £10 supplement for an a-la-carte offering.
