How to quickly earn Hilton points in Canada

Hilton does not offer co-branded credit cards in Canada, so the best way to earn Hilton Honors points in Canada is through intro bonuses and credit card spending across American Express Membership Rewards cards.

AMEX Points can be transferred to Hilton at a 1:1 ratio meaning that 1,000 AMEX Points is equal to 1,000 Hilton Honors Points once transferred.

While this allows you to easily build up lots of Hilton Honors Points, be aware that AMEX Canada Points can be worth up to 2 cents each when redeemed for airfare.

How much are Hilton points worth in Canada?

The Point Calculator values Hilton Honors Points at 0.6 cents each on average meaning that 1,000 Hilton Honors Points is roughly equal to CA$6 in value. This is the easiest value you can obtain with little to no research before booking your award stay at Hilton brand hotels.

Hilton Honors points value

Redemption Point Value in cents
Award Nights 0.5 - 0.7

Redeeming points for free nights

Redeeming Hilton Honors Points for free nights at Hilton brand hotels will typically give your points the best value. For award nights, most redemptions will give your points between 0.5 and 0.7 cents in value though it is possible to get higher or lower depending on the property.

Hilton does not have an award chart, so you will not know how much your points are worth until you start booking. At that point you can compare the cash price and award price.

As an example, I searched for award availability in Toronto for a November weekend and ran the calculations for the first 10 results in the listing.

The best option redemption was Hilton Toronto Airport Hotel and Suites which offered a value of 0.62 cents per point. The worst was DoubleTree Hilton Toronto Airport with a point value of 0.39. The average point value between all 10 hotels was 0.48 which is on the low end.

Again, this is just a sample testing of random hotels and is pretty much the route you have to take to figure out if your points are being redeemed for good value.

Hilton 5th night free perk

Hilton's 5th Night Free Benefit is the easiest way to get the most value out of your Hilton Honors Points. This benefit allows you to book 5 consecutive award nights for the cost of 4.

In order to use this benefit you'll need to have elite status with Hilton Honors. This is obtained by:

  • Earning a certain amount of stays in a calendar year at Hilton
  • Earning a certain amount of nights in a calendar year at Hilton
  • Earning a certain amount of Hilton Honors base points in a calendar year

Hilton does not offer any co-branded credit cards in Canada, but you can obtain complimentary Hilton Honors Gold status with The Platinum Card and The Business Platinum Card.

Popular redemptions for Hilton points

With Hilton having over 5,200 properties around the world, there's a lot of options when it comes to redeeming Hilton Honors Points. Most redemptions will give your points the same 0.5 to 0.7 cents in average value, though there are times in which high-end/popular properties will offer slightly higher value—especially when combined with the 5th night free perk.

Listed below are a few of the many top properties that Hilton has around the globe that can get you some grand value out of your Hilton Honors Points.

Maldives

The Maldives is a bucket list location for many looking for the best of the best when it comes to luxury travel. Regardless of which hotel brand you book with, you're bound to get very high value out of your points due to cash prices ranging from US$700 and US$2,000 (or more) per night.

Hilton has two top-tier properties out in the Maldives:

Europe

Hilton has properties all over Europe. Of those many properties, you can get some great value if you plan on visiting Amsterdam or London.

Other top Hilton properties

Hilton has many more properties scattered across the globe that can net you some solid value in top destinations.

Using Hilton points at all-inclusive resorts

Hilton Honors Points can be used to book all-inclusive resorts that are part of the Hilton brand.

Redemptions at these properties offer the average value of around 0.6 cents each, BUT... it's all inclusive so you're technically going to get significantly more value if you factor in not having to pay for meals, snacks, drinks, activities, and entertainment.

So while the "booking value" is average, I put all-inclusive a step above your average hotel redemptions because you'll typically save money on other purchases.

Hilton has a total of 8 all-inclusive resorts located in Mexico, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Egypt and Turkey. Those hotels are listed below. You can click on any of them to be taken to each hotel's information page on the Hilton website.

All of Hilton's all-inclusive resorts are pretty reasonably priced when it comes to redeeming Hilton Honors Points or paying cash. If you're looking to go all out, I recommend taking a look at their available options.

Transferring points to airline partners

Hilton Honors Points can be transferred to over 40 travel partners. The transfer ratio will vary depending on the partner, but most are 10:1 meaning that 10,000 Hilton Honors Points can be converted to 1,000 airline miles.

This isn't the best use of Hilton Honors Points, but it can be a good for topping off your account if you're a few miles short of a redemption.

Other ways to redeem Hilton points

Outside of using your points to book hotels with Hilton, you can also use your points to book car rentals, rides with Lyft in the U.S. and Canada, and events at Hilton brand properties. These redemptions will give your points lower than 0.6 cents in value.

Car Rentals

Using your Hilton Honors Points for car rentals will give you an average value of around 0.25 cents per point. Hilton Honors Points can be redeemed for rentals with:

In order to redeem your points for cars with Hilton, you'll need to jump to Hilton's car rental portal and select the option to pay with points. Once you select your pick-up/drop-off location and dates, you'll be given a list of prices for Alamo, Enterprise, and National.

The cost in points for basic rentals can cost as much as a free nights at Hilton Hotels which is why I recommend avoiding this redemption if possible.

Redeeming points for car rentals can be quite pricey.

Rides With Lyft

Hilton Honors Points can be redeemed for Lyft credit at a value of 0.22 cents per point. Redemptions start as low as 4,500 Hilton Honors Points for a CA$10 or $US10 credit.
