Hilton is running an Australasia and South East Asia flash sale which runs until Tuesday 2nd April.  See here for details.

Countries covered include Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia and other South East Asia destinations.

The headline saving is an impressive ‘up to’ 35% off the standard flexible rate – albeit these bookings are non-refundable – so it is worth looking to see if any existing Hilton bookings you have should be rebooked.  It may also be worth cancelling redemptions and rebooking for cash if the rate is low enough.

There is a 15% discount on dining during your stay for anyone who books during this sale.

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