MCLEAN, Va. - Run with the bulls or swim with the dolphins? When it comes to vacationing, there are hundreds of options to choose from. Now Hilton HHonors, the loyalty program for Hilton Worldwide's 10 distinct hotel brands, is giving its members one more choice - one that will make their vacation better no matter what they pick.
Hilton HHonors has launched its Double Your HHonors promotion, offering members either double HHonors points or double airline miles for hotel stays completed between July 1 and September 30, 2011. To help kick off this double rewards offer, the Hilton HHonors "Would You Rather" survey asked participants a series of travel-related "either-or" questions. And when it comes to their vacations, Americans would:
Trade Rain for "No Pain at the Pump": 45 percent of Americans would trade a summer of perfect weather for a summer of free gas (compared to 29 percent).
Drive for Silence: 60 percent of Americans would choose to drive 10 hours by themselves with no stereo over taking a 10-hour flight with crying children (compared to 15 percent).
Ditch the Devices: 49 percent of Americans would choose to walk away from technology for a month-long vacation over having to survive a week-long vacation without people (compared to 31 percent).
Pick Lame Over Fame: Significantly more Americans would rather be awarded a free vacation with their boss instead of paying double for a vacation with their favorite celebrity (36 percent vs. 14 percent).
"Last year, Hilton HHonors members loved the freedom to choose whether they earned double points or miles," said Jeff Diskin, senior vice president, global customer marketing, Hilton Worldwide. "We're excited to bring this promotion back again, giving our members rewards that will help them create experiences worth sharing with friends and family - no matter which option they choose."
