Hilton has an offer for airline/agency staff travel that is bookable within 90 days of intended arrival. This is the Hilton’s “Travel Industry” rate.
You need to present your airline staff ID or valid travel agent identification (IATA/IATAN) card at the time of checking in.
The discount using this offer varies from 25% to 50% off of the Best Available Rate.
Please do not book this offer unless you or your travel partner is eligible for this rate. It is officially not qualifying for points or stay/night credits, but those can post occasionally.
The good thing about this rate is that it is not prepaid and usually cancelable until the day of arrival. This rate offer is valid for stays in Europe, Middle East, Africa & Asia.
Rate rule for “AIRLINE – AGENCY STAFF”:
It just clearly state that the airline and/or staff ID is required at the time of checking in.

This is one of the Hilton rate offers to consider outside of the Americas IF you or the person with you are traveling with qualifies for it. Don’t book this unless you have valid credentials.
I have been contemplating to book it few times but haven’t, because there is no guarantee, whether the stay will post as a qualifying or not. I do have valid IATA ID, so I am eligible to use the rate.
Here are some old terms and conditions of this rate that I believe still to be valid:
Our travel agent and airline rates are highly discounted rates exclusively for certified travel agent and airline employees, therefore the following conditions apply: Valid travel agency or airline employee identification is required on check-in. Without valid identification, you will be required to pay the full standard price that applies on the arrival date. The travel agent and airline rate is exclusive for leisure stays and cannot be booked for business related overnight stays. The rates are only available within the next 90 days and are only available during low demand periods, therefore black-out dates may apply and rates are subject to availability Reservations with Hilton hotels in the UK & Ireland can be canceled up to 48 hours prior to 4pm of the day of arrival. Hilton hotels in Europe, Africa, Middle East & Asia can be canceled up to 4pm on the day of arrival. This is subject to change, please check the full rooms & rates description upon booking. A credit card guarantee may be required. Rate is only available within the Hilton Worldwide portfolio outside the USA. Rates are based on two-people sharing.
