Fees

Annual Fee

The annual fee for the Hilton Honors Business Card is $95. This is a pretty low fee for all of the bonus categories this card features. It also offers complimentary Hilton Honors Gold and 10 Priority Pass visits which, in my opinion, is worth way more than the fee.

Authorized User Fee

There is no authorized user fee for the Hilton Honors Business Card. Adding employees, family, or friends as additional users can easily help accelerate the point earnings due to the extensive amount of bonus categories the Hilton Honors Business Card has.

Foreign Transaction Fee

The foreign transaction fee for the Hilton Honors Business Card is 0% meaning spending out of country will not take away from the value of your points. Do note that most of the bonus categories on the Hilton Honor Business Card focuses on U.S. businesses so at most you'll be earning the non-category rate of 3x Hilton Honors Points for international purchases.
