Last day for Hilton’s UK, Europe and Middle East hotel flash sale
Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.
Hilton is running a flash sale on rooms in the UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa. The sale home page is here.
We never got around to covering this last week, amongst all the coverage of the new British Airways Club Suite and the changes to American Express sign-up bonuses. Apologies. However, you still have today to book.
Here are the terms:
book by Monday 25th March
stay on any weekend until 8th September 2019 (Fri/Sat/Sun nights except in the Middle East)
all bookings are pre-paid and non-refundable
some hotels may have midweek dates available at sale prices
The discount is up to 25% off Best Available Rate. Because these rates are non-refundable, you should really compare them with the standard Advanced Purchase Rate. As this is usually just 10% or so below Best Available Rate, the sale should still offer a saving.
Remember that Hilton Honors is offering 2,000 bonus points per stay, which I value at £6-£7, until 5th May. Full details of that offer, and the registration link (you MUST register before your stay), are in this HfP article.
The home page for the Hilton flash sale is here.
