Bits: Hilton family discounts (and win a stay in London), no BA Fast Track in Nice, HFP comments

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

News in brief:

New Hilton family deal (and win a weekend in London for a family of four)

(EDIT:  For some odd reason the competition disappeared this afternoon!  Sorry about that.  The Disney voucher promo is still showing if you click through.)

For a limited period, Hilton is offering a £10 Disney Store voucher when booking the Kids Stay and Eat for Free package in the UK.  You can find out more on here.

To promote this, Hilton is giving away a stay for two adults and two children at the Hilton London Tower Bridge hotel.

The entry form is at the bottom of this page.  You need to be a Hilton Honors member to enter but you can sign up during the entry process if you want.  I don’t know the closing date but the offer only launched last week.

British Airways not paying for Fast Track in Nice

Reader Justin sent me a photo of the Fast Track lane at Nice Terminal 1 which is a relatively new development over the last year or so.

As you can see, despite the heavy Club Europe loads on flights to Nice, the signs imply that British Airways has chosen not to pay the airport to let BA passengers use Fast Track.  A quick dig around online confirmed that this was the case.

Over the last year British Airways has been signing a few lounge access deals in airports where there was a lounge but they had previously refused to pay for it.  It would be good if this could be extended to Fast Track security access too.

A tweak to HFP comments

A quick admin note.  Underneath the comments box on the desktop and tablet versions of HFP, you will now see a box marked “Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.”

Assuming you tick the box, it brings back the functionality we used to have before GDPR forced us to remove it. Your details should automatically be saved for future comments. Mobile should follow soon.

    O/T just struggling to double check the rukes on Priority Pass – cardholder can get in 1 guest free, right? next one £15.

    Wife popped over to Rome for 3 nights with our 2 younger kids, just about to encourage her (with an email) to use the PP lounge on the way back, I don’t mind paying £15 for 3 of them, but if it’s going to be £30 they can go to McD’s.

      She tried to prank me on the airport parking, insisting I both drop her off (early flight today) and pick her up (about midnight in a couple of days). Ie 4 hours+ of my time. Threw quite a strop when I said no bleddy way.

      Only when I found online parking on decent discount – in her language, I might add – for about £20 did she actually give up the argument.

    • the real harry1 says:

      Or 2 of them could get into lounge and give the 3rd one 10 quid to sit outside, I think that would work.

    • Lady London says:

      Yes only the PP that comes with Amex Plat gives a free guest as well. Regular PP’s you get no free guest.

  2. OT I am sure I read the other day that you can no longer refer an Amex card outside of the same family? Was this a temp glitch as it seems possible now? Sorry if this has been discussed already, I couldn’t find anything.

      temp glitch but get in now while the luck holds – they’re onto us

  3. rams1981 says:

    Has anyone who self-referred an Amex card not received the points? My card has arrived today but no referral points yet.

    • SR last week, the 18k bonus hit my account day after receiving the card this time.

  4. “Mobile should follow soon.” It might just be me but hasn’t mobile had this for some time? I though it weird that it was there on mobile before but not desktop.

    Either that or my mobile has been saving it whilst desktop refused..

  5. Are all Hilton redemptions cancellable for a full points refund ?
