Your last call for the Hilton weekends sale

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

September 3rd is your last chance to book in the Hilton Summer Sale with decent weekend deals across Europe, Africa and Middle East.

The sale offers up to 25% off the standard Best Available Rate if you are a Hilton Honors member.

Hilton weekends sale

That said ….. basing the ‘25% saving’ on the Best Available Bed & Breakfast rate is not exactly fair.  Sale rates are non refundable so it is cheeky to compare them to a refundable rate but these deals do usually offer a saving on the usual ‘advanced purchase’ price.  Full pre-payment needs to be made at time of booking.

This rate is only available for weekend stays to 7th October 2018 and must be booked by 3rd September 2018.
