When you have executed searches on Hilton’s website lately, you may have noticed a new rate plan called EXPRESS SAVER.
It appears that EXPRESS SAVER-rate is only available for the stays in the Americas (North/Central/South) and the Caribbean within short notice.
You can access Hilton here.
Here’s a typical rate search:
This Express Saver appears to have the same cancellation policy as the Best Available rate while being cheaper.
Here’s the statement we received from the Hilton spokesperson:
The Hilton Honors Express Saver rate provides members looking to book a near-term stay with maximum flexibility, by allowing them to change or cancel a reservation up to one day before arrival. As always, members have access to exclusive discounted rates when they book direct through Hilton preferred channels.
It seems that this rate plan only pop-ups when you make searches for a stay within the next few days or a week. You cannot book it far in advance.
As most rates are currently cancelable and changeable, you can rebook using this Express Saver-rate if it is lower. You don’t even need to cancel the reservation, but merely modify it to a lower price that you can do it all online, which I have done.
