Accor Hotels has put out a release which reads "[t]his summer, the Ibis brands want to be the travel partner of millennials with the launch of their first 100% student offer" Any press release claiming to be aimed at millennials gets me annoyed very quickly but, because this may offer some genuine value to a few readers, I carried on reading - this is what the offer is all about
British Airways has launched its latest sale on holidays to the Caribbean with prices starting at £579 per person for 7 nights with departures starting from September 2018. While the headline price is for a stay at a 3* resort the airline is also offering deals for stays at 4* and 5* properties too and, if you're looking to avoid the cramped 10-across Economy Class seating, there are deals including Premium Economy and Business Class too.
Hilton has launched a new sale that's going to be of interest to anyone looking to visit the Asia-Pacific region this year. The sale is called "the great getaways" and encompasses Hilton properties across Australasia, India and Southeast Asia although it would appear as if not all properties are participating.
Starwood is running a promotion which is offering 40% off every second night at stays in various properties throughout the Americas. There doesn't appear to be an end date for this promotion in the terms and conditions so it could be around for some time or disappear as quickly as it appeared.
Radisson has launched yet another promotion and this time it's aimed at travelers looking to stay in Europe, the Middle East or Africa between now and 31 August 2018. As is getting more common with Radisson, the rules aren't as straightforward as one might hope so make sure you read the T&Cs before booking.
Accor Hotels has a promotion running which I've only just picked up on and it's one that could be of use if you're looking to book a stay in Europe. While Accor has hotels all over the world it is in Europe where the bulk of its properties are to be found (if you're visiting France it's almost impossible to avoid Accor). The "stay for three pay for two" promotion is as simple as it sounds although it's worth noting that only 2,000 out of Accor's "over 3,700 hotels" are actually participating.
Hilton has announced a sale across all of the regions in which it operates (although not all countries within each region are necessarily taking part). As usual Hilton Honors members get an additional discount and savings (for Honors members) range between 20% and 35% depending on which region the property you're booking is in.
IHG is running a very poorly publicised promotion (I only found it by accident) which offers discounts of between 15% and 30% on hotel bookings in 6 major US cities. Importantly, it looks as if 8 InterContinental properties are participating in this sale and the locations on offer are actually ones that you're likely to want to visit so this is a sale worth a closer look.
IHG Rewards released full details of its first PointBreaks list of 2018 yesterday and, as well as being the first list of the year, it was also the first PointBreaks list to offer properties at three different price points. Gone is the old list where all properties cost 5,000 points per night and, in its place, is the new list where properties cost 5,000, 10,000 or 15,000 points per night. On the face of things this may seem like a devaluation but, as I explained yesterday, the old PointBreaks lists were so full of properties no one really wanted to visit that they were almost completely useless.
The Accor Hotels worldwide "Private Sale" is now live and offering a variety of discounts and promotions depending on where you're looking to book. The deals vary from 25% to 40% and the dates for which the promotion is valid vary from region to region.
