Hilton 25% off
Hilton’s latest sale in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa has launched with up to 25% off. Book by 31 January to get up to 25% off stays to 9 May 2022. To get the full 25% off you will need to be a Hilton Honors member which is free to join. The discount is 25% off the Best Available or Best available with breakfast rates, so it may not be 25% off the cheapest rate available such as an advance purchase.
The offer is available for weekend stays booked between 12 November 2021, and 31 January 2022 for Hilton Honors members booking direct and 16 November 2021 and 31 January 2022 for all other bookings. Stays are to be completed on weekends between 19 November until 9 May 2022. For purposes of the offer, “weekend” is defined as Friday, Saturday, and/or Sunday nights and in the Middle East (excluding Turkey, Lebanon, Morocco, Africa) as Thursday, Friday, and/or Saturday nights. You must book a minimum of 3 days before arrival.
The downside is that full prepayment is required at the time of booking. Your credit card will be charged immediately for the total amount quoted for the entire stay.
Accor Save Up To 30%
Accor also has a sale on the Americas which includes Canada, US (including Puerto Rico), Mexico, Barbados & Bermuda for bookings by 5 January 2022. You can travel up to 30 April 2022.
Fairmont 20% off gift cards
Twice a year Fairmont gives a discount when you purchase gift cards. I have used the offer twice now. Obviously, in the current climate which is still a little uncertain you may worry what you would do if the trip is cancelled. The good news is that if it was a while before you could use them abroad, there are several UK properties you can use them in, not only for stays but any spend such as restaurants or spa treatments. There is a new Fairmont at Windsor, the Savoy and the Fairmont St Andrews.
You can buy Fairmont gift cards in USD, CAD, or EUR. Obviously it is best to choose the rate of the country that you are staying in or what is likely to get the best exchange. For example in Barbados, US dollars would be best since most things are priced in US dollars anyway. The minimum purchase is $25 and the maximum is $5000. Only one purchase can be made per person.
The good news is that they don’t expire and I just spent one from 3 years ago!
I bought some for a trip to the Fairmont The Palm and made an even better killing on the discount as the exchange rate had got better by the time I went. Obviously, this can go the other way too!
There are a few things worth noting:
- You can use these at the hotel or online.
- Some hotels have been pre-charging a credit card for your hotel deposit and then refunding the credit card once they have the gift certificate when you check-in
- Fairmont Gift Cards are not accepted at Fairmont Heritage Place properties, with the exception of Franz Klammer Lodge and Ghirardelli Square.
The gift cards will go on sale on at a 20% bonus between 7 PM – 10 PM UK time on 26 November 2021. The gift card page is here but don’t buy outside the stated times if you want the bonus!
You can combine the gift cards with other discounts and also with the perks you can get booking through our partners Debonair.
