The Hilton Big World Sale is On: Save Money on Room Rates Around the World

T he Hilton Big World Sale is now in effect where you can save up to 30 percent off of the best available room rate at hotel and resort properties around the world which are part of the brand portfolio of Hilton Worldwide; and members of the Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program receive an additional discount of five percent across the board — except in mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau, where the discount is the same as it is for guests who are not members — but the specific details vary by region and brand; and they may also vary by specific hotel and resort properties.

Access to standard Wi-Fi access is available free of charge; whereas access to premium Wi-Fi access — if available — will incur a fee. Wi-Fi access is not free at hotel and resort properties which charge a resort fee.

The Hilton Big World Sale is On — But…

You must pay in full for your reservation in advance at the time of booking it, as your credit card will be charged immediately for the total amount quoted for the entire stay as reserved; and refunds or credits will not be issued unless otherwise indicated by local law. Your reservation may be canceled by the hotel or resort property if your credit card information is invalid or if your credit card is declined. Charges cannot be applied to other stays, services or merchandise. Once your reservation is booked, it cannot be changed or cancelled under any circumstance. If you fail to arrive at the hotel or resort property on the scheduled arrival date, your reservation will be cancelled and you will not receive any refund or credit.

Summary

You can score some potentially significant savings on hotel and resort stays via the Hilton Big World Sale; but keep in mind that there is a possibility that you may not always get the best rate through this sale. Ensure that you shop carefully before booking your reservation — especially as you are required to pay in full for your reservation in advance if you decide to take advantage of this sale.

If you must keep your travel plans flexible, consider bypassing this sale and look for deals which are more forgiving should you need to change or cancel your reservations — and if you want to remain loyal to Hilton HHonors, you might want to start with room rates for members only as an incentive to get you to “stop clicking around” where you can potentially find a good deal but with significantly fewer restrictions…

…and those rates will not always reliably be the best either — which is why you should shop around carefully for the best room rate at a Hilton hotel or resort property. Check all of the options available to you before booking your reservation.

Regardless, remember that you will earn double Hilton HHonors points on every stay at any hotel or resort property in the world which is part of the brand portfolio of Hilton Worldwide.

    @Brian —
    Thanks for the heads up. Re-booked my itinerary through February 2017. Here’s the cool part — I only had to pay for one of them in advance but saved $20 bucks. As for the rest, Hilton actually had lower rates on almost all of them without the advanced purchase requirement. As a result, I saved $725 bucks on three reservations. Not bad.
