Hilton launches hotel discounts for UK ‘key workers’

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

Hilton has joined the list of companies offering discounts for ‘key workers’ during coronavirus.

You need to book via this special link.

Hilton UK key worker discount

For bookings in Europe, Middle East and Africa, it is valid for:

“professionals within Health and Social care, Education and Childcare, Key Public Services, Local and National Government, Military, Food and other necessary goods, Public safety and National security, Transport, Utilities, Communication and Financial Services. You must be a Hilton Honors member to book this rate.”

ID will be required at check in.

I’m not sure when Financial Services workers became ‘key workers’, but it does mean our City of London readership can jump in – as indeed can my wife.
