Hilton Honors Points have the best value when redeemed for free nights at Hilton brand hotels. They can also be used for stays at Hilton's all-inclusive results, car rentals, events at Hilton properties, and be transferred to over 40 travel partners.
How to quickly earn Hilton points
The best way to earn Hilton Honors points outside of staying at Hilton properties is through intro bonuses and everyday spending across AMEX UK Membership Rewards credit cards and Virgin Atlantic credit cards.
American Express UK Membership Rewards
American Express UK Membership Rewards is one of the best programs for earning Hilton Honors Points. AMEX UK points can be transferred to Hilton Honors at a 1:2 ratio meaning that every 1,000 AMEX UK points you transfer will give you 2,000 Hilton Honors Points.
This opens up a handful of American Express credit cards you can use to build up your Hilton Honors Points via intro bonuses and everyday spending.
Here are the credit cards you can use to earn Membership Rewards points:
Virgin Atlantic Flying Club
Virgin Atlantic Flying Club is another direct transfer partner of the Hilton Honors program. Virgin Points can be transferred to Hilton Honors at a 2:3 ratio meaning that every 2,000 Virgin Points transferred will give you 3,000 Hilton Honors Points.
This gives you two credit cards that you can use to earn Hilton Honors Points on everyday purchases.

Redeeming points for free nights
The best value you can obtain from Hilton Honors Points will come from redeeming them towards free nights which will give your points an average value of around 0.38p each. This means that 10,000 Hilton Honors Points will typically give you around £38 in value.
If you have Hilton Honors Status, you can get a little more in value thanks to their 5th night fee benefit which gives you a free night when you book a 5-day consecutive award stay. This can give you as much as 0.4p or more in value since you'll be saving points on the 5-night.
You can obtain Hilton Honors Silver status after staying seven nights at Hilton brand hotels during the year. If you want to fast track your way to status, you can obtain Hilton Honors Gold status with The Platinum Card and The Platinum Business 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 0.3p to 0.4p 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.
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:
Hilton has properties all over Europe. Of those many properties, you can get some great value if you plan on visiting Amsterdam or London.
- Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam (Amsterdam, Netherlands)
- The Biltmore Mayfair, LXR Hotels & Resorts (London, England)
Other top Hilton properties
Hilton has many more properties scattered across the globe that can net you some solid value in top destinations.
- Conrad Hong Kong (Hong Kong, China)
- Conrad Bora Bora Nua (French Polynesia)
- Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort (Maui, Hawaii, USA)
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 0.4p 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.
- Mexico: Hilton Puerto Vallarta Resort
- Jamaica: Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa
- Egypt: Hilton Sharks Bay Resort
- Egypt: Hilton Marsa Alam Nubian Resort
- Turkey: Hilton Dalaman Sarigerme Resort & Spa
- Turkey: Hilton Bodrum Turkbuku Resort & Spa
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.
