Waldorf Astoria is an official sponsor of the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year, and has made a selection of ticket packages available on the Hilton Auction site for ‘buy it now’.
These are exceptional value, especially for the Saturday and Sunday.
For 25,000 Hilton Honors points, which I value at around £85, you get tickets for two people (Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday) plus access to the trackside Waldorf Astoria viewing platform.
To put this in context, two tickets for the Saturday or Sunday plus grandstand access (which may not be as good a view as the Waldorf Astoria viewing platform) would normally cost £270. Even on Thursday, the cheapest day, you would normally be paying £122 for two.
The festival runs from Thursday 12th July to Sunday 15th July. You can redeem your Hilton points via the auction site here.
I would love to go but apparently I will be touring castles in Northern Germany that week, according to my wife ……
