Miles flagged some nice deals in the current Hilton Europe/Middle East/Africa Winter Sale yesterday, but if your January Blues require something even more exotic, it’s well worth remembering that Hilton is also running an excellent Asia/Pacific sale at the moment too!
Before getting onto the deals, given that we’re at the start of a new year and you may be plotting your own travel loyalty strategy, I thought I’d just quickly share why I find myself staying with (and recommending) Hilton more and more these days.
Hilton Honors isn’t a perfect loyalty programme, but for many travellers I do think it’s probably the best of what is available these days. Generally speaking, it boils down to 4 main elements:
- ‘Meaningful’ elite status is relatively easy to get (Gold via Amex Platinum, fast tracks, or status matches).
- Hilton Honors Gold is the best mid-tier status offered by any of the major hotel programmes. Diamond benefits are also solid for a top-tier, though achieving that is more difficult unless you can status match.
- Hilton Honors offers a good rate of return on spend in terms of Points earned – particularly when you factor in the regular bonuses.
- You can find Hilton hotels almost everywhere and there’s usually a choice of different types of hotels (and price points!) to choose from.
Unless you happen to regularly stay in parts of the world with lots of Hyatt options, or can spend a vast amount of your time each year at Marriotts, Hilton is likely your best bet.
