Hilton releases more tickets for the McLaren Technology Centre family day

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

A few weeks ago we wrote about the Hilton Family Day being organised at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking on Saturday 27th July, where you can see the Formula 1 and production cars close up.

All 60 pairs of tickets went to Head for Points readers within a few hours of our article going live.

11 additional pairs of tickets have now been made available. Take a look here.

To quote:

“Join Hilton at their exclusive Family Day event at the McLaren Technology Centre with our McLaren Formula 1 and Golf partners. Hosted at the home of one of motorsport’s most prestigious facilities, you and your family will have behind-the-scenes access to McLaren’s state of the art HQ, as well as life on Tour experiences and golf tips told by Hilton Golf Ambassador and Ryder Cup star Jamie Donaldson.

Your family will have the opportunity to take part in a range of unique experiential activities, including tours of the MTC Boulevard, walking among the historical Formula 1 cars, setting a new time in the Pit Stop Challenge, the chance to test golfing skills on the renowned Hilton Bedroom Chipping experience and to try and beat a pro on the ultimate golfing simulator, plus much more! Your family can also take advantage of a range of food and refreshments on offer throughout the day, as well as a variety of giveaways and prizes to be won!”

Hilton McLaren family fun day

The packages are just 25,000 Hilton Honors points per package.  Given that I value a Hilton point at 0.33p, you are effectively ‘paying’ £85 for the full package above for four people.  This seems like a good deal to me.

You can redeem your Hilton Honors points for the McLaren family package here.  I would jump in quickly if interested as they are unlikely to stick around for long given the demand last time.  Whilst I am not there, it is effectively an unofficial Head for Points reader event now!

How to earn Hilton Honors points via UK credit cards

As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Hilton Honors points from UK credit cards.  Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!

Holders of The Platinum Card from American Express receive FREE Hilton Honors Gold status for as long as they hold the card.  It also comes with Marriott Bonvoy Gold, Radisson Rewards Gold, Shangri-La Golden Circle Jade and Melia Rewards Gold status.  We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here.
