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 hilton.com.
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.
