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.

  • Alex says:

    Don’t forget that if you qualify for the public sector offer, that remains cheaper (in all cases that I’ve just checked)… Only found out about this through HfP late last year!

    • Jon says:

      What is the public sector offer? A discount code?

      • Rob says:

        Special booking site for public sector workers with big discounts.

        • Anna says:

          I can’t remember, was this just for UK properties?

        • Olly says:

          As far as I recall but might be wrong, its only for weekends (including Friday’s and Monday’s) and I have used it at Vienna and Budapest but unlike UK stays I didn’t receive any points for the stays.

    • Rob says:

      Link on our Hotel Promos page.

      • Olly says:

        I don’t know if the Hotel Promos page mentions it but I couldn’t see it. IHG has the same Public Sectors discounts program for ask their portfolio except IC.

    • Olly says:

      And you get free breakfast in the price, regardless of status.

  • David says:

    Website booking section appears to be down however if you use the app, you can make bookings with the deal applied

  • Sam G says:

    Got the Hilton KL at a legit discount (seems they are late going on sale – check later if your date appears to be sold out

    Hilton Paddington the flex rate magically has jumped so I would only be saving £6… No thanks!

  • Scottydoggiom says:

    I was looking at booking a Double tree in Swindon for a trip i have planned , was £54 the other day , now £51 , its hardly 25% off , but i suppose its a saving !
    It has brought the deluxe and suite prices a bit nearer to my budget tho

    • Louise says:

      Stayed at Doubletree Swindon last year, free upgrade to suite as diamond, nice stay

  • Stew says:

    I can see the sheffield hampton at £49 this sunday was £60 before and the abu dhabi grand capital at 240 DH rather than 288 DH in a few weeks time so looks like it’s live.

    Agree the 25%-35% rates don’t seem to be applied consistently across properties though, also the % is taken off the best available rate price, so that’s why it might not be 25% off the cheapest headline HH price displayed before the sale.

  • Simon says:

    What a con – I was all set yesterday to book a night in the Hampton in Amsterdam for €149, but thought I’d hang on until today to see what the discount would be. Very disappointed to see the sharp practice of increasing the regular rate to €179 and publishing the “Sale” rate of €152.

    It’s not just the Hampton I was going to book, but at least all the other Hilton properties in and around Amsterdam that are participating. Very poor!!

    • sunguy says:

      I noticed this as well, a base rate jumping from 209EUR to 217EUR overnight…

      Does anyone remember the Dixons perennial “Closing down sales” of the 1980s ? Or the fact that when companies file for bankrupsy, in general, the prices the administrators start charging for products to flog them off is usually more expensive than they were on sale for before the administration process….

      Same thing…..its imoral, but part of (dubios) business….

      • John says:

        It’s called playing the suckers and is very common. Only suckers fall for this nonsense.

  • Jamie says:

    If anyone has success in the Amex £50 offer triggering for these bookings (even when outside the Amex offer dates) please shout! Would be very grateful…

    • John says:

      It certainly won’t trigger if it’s outside the offer dates – that is, the payment needs to be taken when the offer is active, regardless of when you actually stay.

      • Jamie says:

        Thanks John, yes so wondering if the payment is taken now (i.e. when offer is active) but the stay is outside offer dates, will it trigger?

        • mark2 says:

          It is triggered by the payment. Amex will not know when you stay.

    • Jamie says:

      Thanks Mark, fingers crossed it triggers 🙂

      • TGLoyalty says:

        No need to cross fingers it will work as long as the hotel makes the charge, if they don’t email or phone and ask them to asap.

        I assume AMEX only mention stays becuase that is when you are guaranteed to be charged and they don’t want people claiming they had booked in those dates but we’re never charged the fee within the offer dates.

  • John says:

    I only got 8%.

    • John says:

      I have 2 Halifax accounts and 1 bank of Scotland account I don’t see anything regarding UK are you sure you have Hilton doubletree uk offer?
