Hilton launches a hotel flash sale across Europe, Middle East and Africa

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

Hilton is running a flash sale on rooms in the UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa.  The sale home page is here.

Here are the terms:

book by Monday 7th October

stay on any weekend until 1st March 2020 (Fri/Sat/Sun nights except in the Middle East)

all bookings are pre-paid and non-refundable

some hotels may have midweek dates available at sale prices

The discount is up to 30% off Best Available Rate.  You need to be a Hilton Honors member (free to join) to get this, otherwise the discount is capped at 25%.  Because these rates are non-refundable, you should really compare them with the standard Advanced Purchase Rate.  As this is usually just 10% or so below Best Available Rate, however, the flash sale should still offer a saving.

Remember that Hilton Honors is offering double base points per stay until 5th January via the new ‘Power Up’ promotion.  Full details of that offer are in this HFP article.  You can register for ‘Power Up’ here.

The home page for the Hilton flash sale is here.
