Today is the last day to book in Hilton‘s Summer Sale with decent weekend deals across Europe, Africa and Middle East.  The sale home page is here.

The sale offers up to 30% off the standard Best Available Rate if you are a Hilton Honors member.

Hilton Summer sale

As usual we need to add that basing the ‘30% saving’ on the Best Available Bed & Breakfast rate is not exactly fair.  Sale rates are non refundable so it is a bit 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 up to 6th January 2020.

Included is, for example, the gorgeous Hilton Paris Opera, which we reviewed here and pictured above, for €276 per night instead of €369 on 21st September.  As I said above, €369 is actually the ‘refundable’ price so it is not a true comparison, but the difference between the refundable and non-refundable price is usually only 10% or so.

The 30% savings are for Hilton Honors members only. The normal sale discount rate is 25%. If you aren’t a Hilton Honors member – very unlikely I admit if you are a regular HfP reader – you can sign up when booking your stay. You receive a smaller discount at Hampton by Hilton properties.
