Entering its ninth year, the award winning campaign which runs in conjunction with MasterCard, the global payment solution experts and Emirates Holidays, the tour operating arm of Emirates Airline now offers customers an unrivalled selection of exciting package stays in key destinations around the globe.
From now until the end of September, business and leisure travellers alike will be able to take advantage of a luxurious break, which can not only be extended for free, but will also earn them extra airline miles, Hilton HHonors bonus points and an additional ten percent discount when booking through MasterCard.
“We’re thrilled to be able to offer such a splendid opportunity to our guests. It’s a chance for Hilton to reward the continued loyalty of our customers and what better way than to extend their summer escape for just that bit longer? Travellers wishing to take up Hilton For Free can book packages with Emirates flights, giving them even better value for money,”
said Guy Epsom, Regional Sales and Marketing Director, Hilton International, Arabian Peninsula.
Hilton hotels are renowned for their exceptional standards of service, and this summer guests will be able to take advantage of a stress free break at an additional ten hotels around the world. A three night consecutive stay will earn travellers one additional night. For five nights, they can get an additional two and if they stay for a week, they’ll be rewarded with a fantastic three night free extension. Customers who are looking for a longer holiday can earn themselves virtually an entire complimentary week.
“MasterCard is delighted at the success that the Hilton For Free campaign has enjoyed in 2005 and is pleased to continue developing this award winning promotional concept through 2006. This innovative alliance brings us closer to our goal to work closely with strategic allies and hence to be the preferred method of payment in the hotel, travel and entertainment industries. Hilton For Free delivers on the promise of providing unique, value-added benefits to our cardholders across the Middle East, Levant and India region,” said Thomas Edelmann, Vice President, Strategic Alliances & Business Development, MasterCard International South Asia Middle East Africa (SAMEA).
The newly opened Conrad Chicago in Illinois is fresh this year to the Hilton For Free portfolio. In the Windy City’s ideal urban oasis, the hotel boasts one of the most prestigious addresses within the Magnificent Mile, located above Westfield North Bridge on Michigan Avenue, with a main entrance on Rush Street at Grand Avenue. With 311 luxuriously appointed guest rooms and state-of-the-art facilities, travellers will benefit from the very best of both work and play opportunities; situated just moments from superior shopping the Conrad Chicago is also based at the heart of the financial district, amidst some of the finest dining in North America.
Alternatively, travellers taking advantage of the promotion will be able to sample a real taste of the Orient at Hilton’s very first Worldwide Resort based in China. The spectacular Sanya Resort & Spa offers guests the ultimate experience in laidback living. Whether it’s relaxing by the meandering lagoons or drifting off on the stunning sands of Yalong Bay, the serenity of the set up is guaranteed to ease the stresses of everyday life. The 501 rooms, suites and villas are all surrounded by lush tropical gardens and are designed to incorporate the five Chinese elements of fire, water, metal, wood and earth.
The hallmarks of Emirates Holidays – quality, affordability and flexibility are equally as applicable to Hilton’s summer promotion. By joining forces in the promotion, Emirates Holidays is able to provide its customers with a significantly enhanced product, which builds on last year’s successful partnership.
