Hilton Honors announces new policies
Members can expect to retain their points and elite status for an extended period
As people continue to navigate the changing dynamics of travel and get back on the road, Hilton remains optimistic and committed to providing flexibility to its more than 118 million Hilton Honors members worldwide. Hilton Honors has announced that its members can expect to retain their points and elite status for an extended period of time and earn status more easily in 2022.
Hilton Honors, the guest loyalty programme of Hilton’s world-class portfolio of 18 brands, has implemented global benefit changes to help members maintain or achieve elite status, even as travel remains limited in some parts of the world. The Loyality programme will extend status through March 31, 2023, so members can maintain their status perks and benefits longer. It will also pause points’ expiration until December 31, 2022, so members have more time to use their points towards free nights at more than 6,600 Hilton hotels. Apart from that, it will relax 2022 qualifications around earning status, milestone bonuses, and status gifting to make these benefits easier to achieve.
The Hilton Honors members will be entitled to earn the Silver status at seven nights, three stays or 17,500 Base Points. Gold status at 28 nights, 14 stays or 52,500 base points and Diamond status at 42 nights, 21 stays or 84,000 base points. 10,000 bonus points will be awarded at 30 nights of stay and after that 10000 Bonus Points for every 10 additional nights. 30000 bonus points will be awarded at 60 nights.
Free Weekend Night Certificates, including those issued in 2022 can continue to be used any night of the week. Hilton Honors Bonus Points earned from eligible purchases on any Hilton Honors American Express Card will continue to count as Base Points toward Elite tier qualification and Lifetime Diamond status through Dec. 31, 2022.
“As we get back to a new season of travel together, we want our loyal guests to know that we made these program changes with them top-of-mind. We are proud to lead the hospitality industry in providing flexibility, once again, to our valued Hilton Honors members to help them make new memories when they’re ready to travel again,” said Jenn Chick, Vice President and Global Head, Hilton Honors & Customer Engagement, Hilton.
