Hilton has launched its Summer sale for hotels in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

You can see full details on the Hilton website here.

In summary:

Hilton launches its Summer sale
  • you must book and stay by 12th September
  • you must book at least one day in advance
  • full prepayment is required and rooms are not refundable
  • sale rates are available at all hotels at weekends and at some hotels midweek

You will save 25% off the standard Best Flexible Rate, apart from Hampton and Hilton Garden Inn hotels where the discount is 20%. The discount is lower if you are not a Hilton Honors member.

As we always say with such offers, the 25% saving quoted is not really true. Best Flexible Rates are fully cancellable and do not require any prepayment, whilst the sale rates are pre-paid and non-refundable. That said, you should still make a saving on the usual Advance Purchase rate.

You will earn double base points on stays of 1-2 nights and triple base points on stays of three or more nights up to 5th September.

You need to register in advance of your stay via the Hilton website here.  Existing bookings count and all Hilton Honors hotels are taking part.
