Last chance for the Hilton hotels weekends sale

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

The two current Hilton sales are ending this week.

The first sale, which ends on Thursday 31st, has decent weekend deals across Europe, Africa and Middle East.

Full details are on the Hilton website here.

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

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 until 29th May 2019.

An Asia-Pacific sale too

There is a separate Hilton sale covering its properties in Asia and Australasia.  See here for details.

It includes hotels such as the Millennium Hilton Bangkok.  If you are heading to Thailand you might also want to take a look at the brand new Waldorf Astoria Bangkok which looks impressive.

The deals are valid for stays up to 30th September.  These deals can be booked until Saturday 2nd February. The headline saving is ‘up to 25% off’ the standard flexible rate – albeit these bookings are non-refundable.

Full details of the APAC sale can be found on this special page of hilton.com.

Hilton Points Unlimited

Don’t forget to register for the NEW bonus points offer

If you are booking a Hilton sale room, don’t forget the new Spring promotion, Points Unlimitedwhich is open for registration here.

You will earn 2,000 bonus Hilton Honors points for every stay until 5th May.  Even better, you will earn an additional 10,000 bonus Hilton Honors points for every FIVE stays OR TEN nights you complete, whichever comes first.

2,000 bonus points per stay is a decent offer, especially for someone who tends to do short stays.  The additional 10,000 points carrot for every five stays or 10 nights is a worthwhile extra bonus.  If your hotel stays are generally just for one night then you should seriously consider moving them (in chunks of five) to Hilton this Spring.

Make sure you register here if you have any Hilton stays coming up over the next four months.  Even if you don’t have any stays planned, it is still worth registering just in case – a lot can happen between now and 5th May.
