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.

  • Brian says:

    You say that the M&M offer is better than the Hilton 2,000 bonus points offer – they’re parallel – you can get both, so it’s not a question of choosing one or the other.

  • Gary says:

    Looking for a hotel in St Petersburg this summer during the World Cup – hotel costs are so high. Any tips on points redemption opportunities?

    • Rob says:

      You will be lucky to get something now. However all of the hotel schemes let you search availability without having the points already to hand so no harm in digging around. Perhaps wait until the last minute if this is for the knock-out rounds as others will cancel (although I can’t believe you’d be looking to book a hotel for the knock-out rounds if you are backing England …..)

    • Andrew (@andrewseftel) says:

      Radisson Rewards – I think they have a decent presence there, offer last room availability and you can transfer 1:3 from Amex.

  • Matt says:

    So there is mention that in the past these Amex Hilton offers were triggered by cumulative rather than single booking spend within the period.

    Whilst I see there is no guarantee that this might work now, was it a rare event or common before?

    • Rob says:

      The Hilton ones have always been cumulative as far as I remember. Most of the Amex offers although they never tell you.

      • Matthew Clark says:

        Thanks that’s helpful Rob.
        I won’t bet on it but it will probably tip the balance from Marriott to Hilton in for some bookings I’m doing.

  • RussellH says:

    I have two stays at NCL soon; both originally booked points + cash over two months ago. One still worked out slightly cheaper on points+cash than on the sale price, but the other sale price was (a bit) cheaper than points+cash (using Rob’s 0.3p value, though I usually get much better than that at the city centre Hampton). I checked the current non sale prices and they seemed pretty much in line with what I would have expected, ie they had gone up slightly over the last two months. Certainly had not been pushed up significantly.

    • TGLoyalty says:

      Are you factoring in the points you will earn on the stay Inc the 2k bonus?

      BTW I like the current offer 5 1 night says and a nice 20k of bonus points.

  • Anna says:

    Re the public sector discount mentioned earlier, the code does seem to work on US hotel bookings, however it looks like they offer a limited number of rooms with this discount, and these get snapped up a long way in advance. I’ll try it earlier for next year!

  • Dave Barron says:

    1. Public sector code is PR11PN valid UK and Europe. Generally cheaper than sale prices with free breakfast included. I can genuinely benefit from this as a public sector employee. ID is very rarely checked in my experience.

    2. If you have status with Hilton remember to update your My Way Preferences to benefit from 1000 bonus points when booking public sector rate (or any rate with breakfast included). If the choice is a free breakfast or points then may as well claim the points if the breakfast rate is cheapest anyway!

    3. Sadly my current gold status is due to expire in a couple of weeks (after 2 years!) and I revert to Silver. I’m sure I’ve read on HFP previously that if I were to make a booking now, whilst still Gold, that associated benefits would be retained even when I’ve dropped back to silver? Can anyone confirm – thanks!

  • Bob says:

    As an Hilton Elite member, if I book 2 rooms for same stay, for my family, Do everyone get free breakfast? And room upgrades?
