Get tickets for the Goodwood Festival of Speed with Hilton Honors

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

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 ……

How to earn Hilton Honors points via UK credit cards

As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Hilton Honors points from UK credit cards.  Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!

Do you know that holders of The Platinum Card from American Express receive FREE Hilton Honors Gold status for as long as they hold the card?  It also comes with Marriott Bonvoy Gold, Radisson Rewards Gold, Shangri-La Golden Circle Jade and Melia Rewards Gold status.  We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here.

  1. A celebratory OT: Just sold my last Tesco HP cartridge from yonks ago!

  2. Lumma says:

    OT. With avios bookings are you allowed same day flight changes like you can with the tickets with the baggage? Or does there need to be avios availability and I’d need to pay the change/cancellation fees?

  3. OT but waiting for gold credit card bonus points and was told it could take 10 working days….

  4. Disgusting says:

    O/T Please can you advise how I can remove the Allen & Jain masturbation advert when viewing your website?

    • You can’t, it is locked in for the week. Sorry!

    • Lumma says:

      I’ve got a feeling they won’t be using hfp for advertising in the future judging by the comments

  5. mutley says:

    O/T Rob, when staying at Marriott in Venice on 45000 point redemption did your stay include breakfast?


    • No – because it is a resort. You need to bite the bullet on that as there is nowhere else to eat given you are on an island. The saving using points over cash for peak August dates means it still makes sense.

      Anyway, I am hoping to get my Marriott Plat sorted out soon (via the ‘9 stays’ Platinum challenge) which will mean we get breakfast anyway, since the new scheme will remove the resorts exclusion from August. I just need to hope it is before we get there in August.

  6. Uh oh, when you login online, at what point does it show up on the screen?

  7. O/T – Has anyone else experienced problems using the HfP link for IHG’s 30% off Mastercard weekend rate? I am checking more than 21 days out and e.g. Paris works but London doesn’t (and hasn’t for the last two days). It says an error has occurred and to phone them. Thanks for any insights.

    OT – :
    Has the IT plug been pulled ? Just logged in and can see availability for 5pax domestically with Flybe in Oct 18 ( BHD to EMA return ) and 2pax ( DUB to ACE ) with Aer Lingus in FEB 19 BUT I cannot book same. Tried to transfer from BA – email says successful transfer of Avios but not showing as updated in
    Checked for same flights and neither trip shows any availability using Flybe or Aer Lingus. Only BA and Iberia showing at £ cash prices only – well hacked off….

    • The first wave of accounts have been closed. They are doing a chunk every day for the next couple of months I think. What that means for bookings I don’t know.
