How to Find the Best Hotel Deals is an actionable guide on finding and booking hotels at discounted rates that save money – financially rewarding, travel savvy and overall amazing!
Start by researching multiple hotel booking sites, such as online travel agencies (OTAs), hotel websites and metasearch engines aggregators/aggregators which search both OTAs and hotel sites simultaneously for results. When reviewing prices for different lengths of stays (one night, two nights etc), your average nightly price should decrease with each added night’s stay – this way saving on costs per night can add up over time!
Another key tip when booking hotels is scouting for hidden fees like resort fees, city taxes and parking garage charges – these can quickly make the cost appear more costly than it actually is. Also try to avoid excessive charges such as calls made from hotel rooms to outside countries by using your own phone or prepaid calling card instead.
One last tip for saving on hotel costs is being flexible when booking your trip date. Being open-minded about traveling during shoulder seasons like April or October could sometimes yield great hotel discounts.
And finally, don’t be intimidated to call the hotel directly once you have an approximate figure from an online booking search engine. Many front desk agents can offer additional services/amenities like free parking or breakfast or room upgrades at their discretion if you contact them directly and request it.
