Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Last day to book in Hilton’s Asia Pacific hotel sale

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

Hilton has been running an APAC sale to celebrate its 100th anniversary.  This covers hotels across South East Asia, Australasia, Japan, Korea and Greater China.

Today, Friday 6th, is the last day to book.

Discounts are up to 25% off the Best Available Rate.  There is an additional discount for logged-in Hilton Honors members, except in China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.

The new Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi is included, image below, as is the – more affordable – brand new Waldorf Astoria Bangkok.

As always with Hilton sales, your room will be non refundable and requires pre-payment.  This means that the 25% discount is not a genuine one because you would usually save 10% anyway by pre-paying.  You should still see an additional saving, however.

You need to book TODAY for stays until 29th February.

The Hilton APAC sale site is here.

    What is the best Avios buying promotion that BA has done?

    • Shoestring says:

      doesn’t get much better than +50% = 1p/ Avios, I got 100,000 Avios @1p a few years ago via IB when the £ was stronger.

      But for smaller quantities, you can easily achieve 0.75p or 0.8p/ Avios with Avios + Money, I have regularly been ‘picking up’ 150K Avios pa @ 0.8p this way, all without getting off my backside

    Is the Virgin auto convert offer still on?
