Last year Hilton relaunched their loyalty scheme, Hilton Honors earlier in the year. The relaunch, which included a name change from Hilton HHonors to Hilton Honors, also brought a few new features to the scheme. Hilton Honors points pooling was introduced as part of the relaunched. When loyalty programs change their structure and rebrand it gives them a reminder to review all existing areas of the scheme where discounts are offered – in this case the Hilton Public Sector offer that has been running for quite some time. After a quick check earlier in the week, this little known Hilton discount, appears to still be running, so here is a reminder of how the discount applies.
In short, if you are employed in the public sector, then you will be able to receive a discount of up to 30% when staying at Hilton properties. Hilton are offering a guaranteed discount of up to 30% on hotel stays to anyone working in the public sector. To receive the public sector discount you need to:
- Work in the public sector, for a UK company
- Booking a hotel within Europe, Africa or the Middle East
- Stay on either a Friday, Saturday or Sunday night
All Hilton brands are included including luxury Waldorf Astoria and Conrad Hotels. Cheaper, budget Hilton hotels, such as the budget brand Hilton Hampton properties, offer a lower discount of 20%. The majority of Hilton Hotels are also participating in the offer, though some are excluded.
Hilton Public Sector Offer
To book a room using the Hilton Public Sector discount go to the Hilton site, click on ‘Advanced Search’ and enter the special rate code PR11PN. Pricing will then be adjusted to reflect the discount in the search results.
Bookings made using the discount code will also still continue to earn Hilton Honors points and count as nights towards the various status levels.
The Hilton Public Sector offer is available to anyone working for “organisations that have a direct report to a UK Government Ministry (including the Welsh, Scottish and Northern Ireland Assemblies), are entirely funded by UK Tax Payers’ money, are non-profit making and operate entirely for the public interest and have no commercial interests whatsoever”.
