Hilton has a 3-day flash sale going on for stays in EAME (Europe, Africa & Middle East) for weekend stays from October 11 to December 29, 2013.
Weekend is defined as Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights in the Middle East and Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in Europe and Africa.
The discount offered during this sale varies from 15% to 33% off of the BAR (Best Available Rates). Note that this rate is prepaid, nonchangeable and nonrefundable. Only book it if your plans are firm.
You can access Hilton’s web page for this sale here.
You should also check the following sale rates that may offer, when available, better rates than this flash sale:
Here are some rate examples:
Athenee Palace Hilton Bucharest
The flash sale rate is the same as the advance purchase rate.
Hilton Beirut Metropolitan Palace
Flash sale rate is the lowest publicly available rate for the Friday nights stay in November.
Hilton Abu Dhabi
Flash sale rate is again the lowest.
To be frank, I was not blown away by the rates that I saw. They were often the lowest but nothing too remarkable. You should check if you can save using these rates and compare to other discount plans.
The Hilton’s website is really horrible. You cannot bring other discount rates using the same window. You have to use other browser if you prefer bringing up the other discount rates as well. Obviously Hilton doesn’t want you to see what other rates the hotel maybe offering for the dates.
