Hilton Flash Sale Fall 2016: Save Up to 30 Percent on Room Rates in Europe, Middle East and Africa
D uring the Hilton flash sale fall 2016 — which will last for seven days between Tuesday, October 4, 2016 and Monday, October 10, 2016 at 11:59 in the evening British Summer Time — you can save up to 30 percent off of room rates for reservations booked at most hotel and resort properties in the Hilton Worldwide portfolio across Europe, Africa and the Middle East; and stays must be completed on weekends between Friday, October 7, 2016 and Sunday, January 29, 2017 except as otherwise indicated.
Although this offer is for stays completed on weekends — defined as Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in Europe and Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights in the Middle East and Africa — some hotel and resort properties may offer:
- What appears to be discounts of greater than 30 percent, which has not been unusual in similar flash sales in the past — such as this one earlier this year
- Stays with arrivals during the week
- A discount on premium room categories only — Executive or Deluxe rooms as two examples — and rates advertised may be for premium room categories
- A discount off of the Dinner, Bed and Breakfast best available rate — or half board rate
Save Up to 30 Percent on Room Rates in Europe, Middle East and Africa
The discount is 25 percent off of the best available rate across all participating hotel and resort properties; is subject to availability; and the rates for members of the Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program during the flash sale are an additional five percent discount off of the best available rate and the best available bed and breakfast rate for participating hotel and resort properties of the Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts; Conrad Hotels & Resorts; DoubleTree by Hilton; Hilton Hotels & Resorts; Curio, a collection by Hilton; and Hilton Garden Inn brands. Participating Hampton by Hilton properties are offering discount of up to ten percent on the best available rate. Discounts vary by hotel or resort property.
The full prepayment — which is required at the time of booking — cannot be refunded.
The best available rate is a specific rate type which varies — depending on the time of purchase; is unrestricted; non-qualified; and excludes discount rates.
To qualify for the lowest price offering or guaranteed discount of an additional five percent off of the discounted price indicated for participating hotel and resort properties, you must be a registered member of the Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program at the time of booking your reservation; and the reservation must be booked at least one day in advance of your arrival through direct channels of Hilton:
- The Hilton reservation call center
Best Price Guarantee
If you find a lower publicly available room rate anywhere else, keep in mind that important changes to this policy have recently occurred with the Best Price Guarantee offered by Hilton Worldwide, which will offer you a discount of 25 percent off of the lower third party rate for approved claims.
Access to the Internet Via Free Wi-Fi
Members of the Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program who book direct will enjoy free standard Wi-Fi access at any hotel or resort properties under the Hilton, Doubletree, Embassy, Waldorf, Conrad, Curio, and Canopy brands. Free standard Wi-Fi access is available for all booked stays at Hampton, Hilton Garden Inn, Homewood Suites, and Home 2 Suites; while premium Wi-Fi access is available for a fee at selected properties — except for members of the Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program who have earned Diamond elite level VIP status. Wi-Fi access is not free of charge in meeting spaces or at hotel or resort properties with a resort charge.
Select Terms and Conditions
Blackout dates may apply and vary by hotel or resort property. Rates are valid for single or double occupancy and include taxes but are exclusive of incidental charges, gratuities, and resort fees where applicable.
Your credit card will be charged immediately for the total amount quoted for the entire stay as reserved, as payment in full is due at the time of booking your reservation; and refunds or credits will not be issued unless otherwise indicated by local law. In case your contract with Hilton is governed by German law, a refund of ten percent of the paid rates applies upon cancellation. In such a case, you may however prove that no or a significantly lower damage has been incurred for Hilton.
If you fail to arrive at the hotel property on the scheduled arrival date, your reservation will be cancelled and you will not receive any refund or credit. Charges cannot be applied to other stays, services or merchandise. Once booked, reservations cannot be changed.
Rates featured in advertising are the lowest rates available for destinations and not at specific properties.
Prices shown are per room per night based on two adults sharing one room. Any currency conversions provided or displayed on advertising are for comparison as a guide only and should be used only as examples; and reservations will be booked in the local hotel currency displayed. Offer components cannot be transferred or redeemed for cash; and cannot be used during future stays.
Other restrictions, terms and conditions apply; but this offer:
- Is subject to limited availability at the advertised rate at participating hotel and resort properties within the Hilton Worldwide portfolio of brands
- Is subject to offer details herein and the booking terms and conditions of the individual hotel or resort property
- May not be combined with:
- Other select promotions
- Negotiated rate plans
- Qualified rate plans
- Bonus offer or discounts
- Is not valid for existing reservations
- Is not valid for group bookings
- Cannot be combined with the Hilton Minibreaks offer of a second room for children for half price
Your room rate can be as low as £65.00 per night; but the hotel and resort properties are unknown yet at this time, as the flash sale has not yet started — so there is a possibility that the room rates can actually be lower at some hotel and resort properties which are participating in this flash sale — but do not be surprised if this sale starts a little earlier, as flash sales offered by Hilton have tended to do in the past.
Although you can potentially save a significant amount of money as a result of this flash sale, you are strongly advised to thoroughly do your research, as the possibility of finding even lower room rates at some hotel and resort properties as a result of a different sale after the conclusion of the flash sale can occur — and you might be able to take advantage of the aforementioned best rate guarantee. Please read this article for additional information and details before you participate in this flash sale.
Despite the purchasing of hotel room nights in advance, this sale could save you money as well if you act within those seven days — after you do your research, of course.
