Redeem a lot of Hilton Honors points for a McLaren track day

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

If you are keen on fast cars, Hilton Honors and McLaren have got together to organise another exceptional track day.

This is what you get:

Here’s your chance to score the ultimate McLaren track day experience at the famous Dunsfold Circuit.  You and a guest will have the opportunity to experience the full capabilities of a McLaren road car, combined with the highest standard of hospitality.

Dunsfold Circuit is designed to deliver a fun mix of low and high-speed corners as well as a series of straights, offering the optimal track for this McLaren track day experience.

This experience for two (2) includes:

Opportunity to drive both a McLaren 570S and 720S alongside professionally qualified driving coaches

Hot Lap, where the driving coach will take the wheel and show you how to maximize car performance around the track

VIP hospitality throughout the day, including lunch

Please note this package does not include rail, airfare or hotel accommodations. Must be 25+ years of age and have valid international driving license.

If you know anything about performance cars you’ll know what an opportunity this is.  If you don’t, it’s not for you anyway!  The date is 24th October.

Last year this was a ‘buy it now’ deal for 275,000 Hilton Honors points.  This year it is being auctioned, and by coincidence the price is currently 275,000 points but could obviously go higher.

It isn’t cheap – based on my 0.33p per point valuation, you are ‘paying’ close to £900 at the current bid – but it would be an amazing day out.  You can bid here.

  1. The new Marriott points pricing structure seems to be based on days of the week rather than periods in the year, e.g. Tuesday and Wednesday or Wednesday and Thursday are standard while the rest of the month is peak.

    Important week coming up for Thomas Cook
    https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/sep/15/thomas-cook-in-race-to-secure-rescue-deal

    [Thomas Cook will on Monday request a delay to a key bondholders’ meeting on Wednesday to try to maximise the chances of securing a £1.1bn emergency rescue package to help stave off imminent financial collapse…The 178-year-old global travel group also needs to persuade the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) – which administers the Air Travel Organiser’s Licence (Atol) scheme covering travel companies – that it should renew its licence at the end of September for another 12 months.]

  3. Rob, you’re the Curve man. Whats the best joining deal at the moment for the free Curve card? Thanks

  4. Can someone explain how and why Alex Macheras seems to pop up on every bloody aviation related tv programme?!?

  5. David Birkbeck says:

    How do you transfer Avios from Iberia Plus to BAEC? I used to do it using the Avios.com site but Iberia Plus doesn’t seem to offer the option?

    • Do it from avios.com and you’re fine. Pull then push to BA. Needs an Aer Lingus or Vueling account to be able to log in at avios.com
