Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Hilton Honors

Hilton Honors is the loyalty scheme for Hilton hotels, which includes these brands: Canopy, Conrad, Curio, DoubleTree, Embassy Suites, Hampton, Hilton, Homewood Suites, Home2 Suites, LXR, Motto, Tapestry Collection, Tru and Waldorf Astoria.

Our main two-part introduction to the Hilton Honors programme is here and you can learn more about the program on hilton.com here.

Check out our ‘Hotel Offers’ page here to see what bonus point offers are currently running.

If you need to top-up your account, you can buy points here.

More information on how you can get Hilton Gold Elite status for free with The Platinum Card by American Express is here.

Hilton Honors does not have its own UK credit card but you can transfer points earned from American Express Platinum (high fee, high bonus), American Express Preferred Rewards Gold (free for a year, good bonus) and Amex Rewards Credit Card (no fee, small bonus!).
