Hilton Honors is offering a 100% bonus when you buy points by 7th March. Click here to buy.
Hilton Honors has arranged another tour of the McLaren F1 factory at the Norman Foster-designed McLaren Technology Centre in Woking.
The date is Thursday 19th March. The cost is 130,000 Hilton Honors points for two people and includes a buffet. There were four packages left at 10pm last night.
No time is given, annoyingly.
The factory is not normally open to the public so this is a rare opportunity to take a look inside.
Note the price, which is now getting a little steep in my view. These packages were originally 50,000 points, then 75,000 points and then 100,000. Given my 0.33p valuation for a Hilton Honors point, you are effectively trading off £430 of free hotel stays by going.
