Hilton HHonors, the loyalty programme for Hilton Worldwide's ten hotel brands, has partnered with Priority Pass, the world's largest independent airport lounge access programme.
The partnership means that all Hilton HHonors members can earn points upon purchase of a Priority Pass membership or redeem their HHonors points to gain a Priority Pass subscription.
A membership with Priority Pass allows for access to over 600 airport lounges across 100 countries, including London's Heathrow Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and Tokyo's Narita International Airport – regardless of the airline and cabin class they are travelling on.
Priority Pass is split into three categories - Standard membership, Standard Plus membership and Prestige membership.
The lowest tier costs 36,500 HHonors points, while "plus" tier will set you back 101,500. Finally, the top Prestige membership cost 161,500 HHonors points.
For an annual fee, Standard and Standard Plus offers members entry at a cost-per-use basis and ten free lounge visits per year, respectively. Prestige, meanwhile, provides members with unlimited access to lounges throughout the year.
The number of HHonors points earned from purchasing an annual Priority Pass membership is as follows:
- Standard - 4,000 HHonors Points
- Standard Plus - 6,500 HHonors Points
- Prestige - 10,000 HHonors Points
