Hilton kicked off a global sale across most of its chains that rewards people who plan their 2010 getaways - and pay for them in January. The sale gives us a glimpse at what hotel giants might try to get leisure travelers to take vacations this year since business travel remains sluggish. How the sale works:
To take advantage of the sale, visit the Hilton HHonors sale website by Jan. 31 to book and pay for your hotel stay between Jan. 7 and Dec. 26, 2010. The discounts will apply mainly to Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights throughout 2010, although some hotels will also discount Thursday nights.
How big your discount will be will depend on where you go. You'll save more money when you vacation across the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
The Hilton Luxor in Egypt is one of the hotels that Hilton has put on sale for 2010. The catch? You must book and pay in January.
