Middle Eastern travellers looking to escape the summer heat this year can choose from 130 Hilton hotels in 45 countries, and receive extra nights for free, in addition to a ten per cent discount when booking with their Visa card.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, the award-winning Hilton For Free summer holiday promotion will launch on May 1 and runs until the end of September. Customers can not only book direct with Hilton’s reservations call centre, but with new partner Dnata Holidays.
Guy Epsom, regional director of sales and marketing for Hilton Hotels in the Arabian Peninsula said: “Hilton for Free is an immensely popular programme, hence why it continues to run after ten years. New partners this year are Visa and Dnata Holidays. A three-night consecutive stay will earn travellers one additional complimentary night. For five nights booked, guests will receive an additional two nights stay, and a week’s stay will earn them a fantastic three night extension. And for longer holidays, they can receive an extra week’s stay for free!”
The programme expands every year, and this year nine new properties join the Hilton For Free family to provide even more choice to travellers. In addition to Visa’s ten per cent saving, customers can also earn Hilton HHonors points and Airmiles. The most popular Hilton For Free destinations are expected to be London, Paris, Vienna, Istanbul and Cairo. Travellers can also take advantage of staying at newly opened Hilton properties with locations all around the world.
Hilton Warsaw, newly opened in the downtown business district in the centre of Poland’s capital; Hilton Molino Stucky, which will open in Venice on June 1, is located on Giudecca Island offering breathtaking views of the Venetian canals; and Hilton Evian-les-bains, France, is set on the banks of Lake Geneva against the backdrop of the French Alps.
Additional new openings are Hilton Namhae Golf & Spa Resort in South Korea’s Namhae Island – preserved as a National Park and surrounded by scenic mountains, forests and waterfalls; Hilton London Tower Bridge in the UK is located on the doorstep of the city’s financial and shopping districts; Hilton Manchester Deansgate is characterised by its modern spiral atrium, and the first Hilton Garden Inn to join the promotion at Rome Airport.
