May 04, 2009

BEVERLY HILLS, CA (May 4, 2009) -  For many people, the summer travel seasons means relaxation, lazy days and a chance to unwind with family and friends. Just in time for summer, Hilton Hotels and Visa Inc. are kicking off a partnership that lets travelers – and their wallets – relax before their vacation even begins. From May 1st through September 30, 2009, Visa Signature, Visa Infinite, and Visa Platinum credit card holders can save 25 percent off* the best available room rates at participating Hiltons around the globe.

“Hilton’s offer for Visa premium cardholders comes at the perfect time for travelers looking for a more affordable way to hit the road this summer,” said Dave Horton, Global Head – Hilton Hotels & Resorts. “With more than 500 hotels and resorts to choose from, Hilton offers something for everyone, whether they’re looking for a memory-making family getaway, a romantic couples’ trip, or a fun-filled weekend away with good friends.”

This exclusive global offer is only available when booking rooms online at www.hilton.com/visa or www.visa.com/signature. Travelers can visit either Web site to easily access the promotion details and make their travel arrangements. Travelers without a Visa Signature, Infinite or Platinum card can apply for a Visa card or book a room through Hilton’s pre-payment offer, which provides room savings of 20 percent throughout the summer.
