Finding the best hotel deals

Posted on December 1, 2014 at 1:19 pm

With so many hotel comparison websites it can be hard to know where to go for the best deals on hotel rooms.

The main issue is that the comparison websites only review and offer a certain selection of hotels that usually pay the website to feature their hotels, therefore you don’t get a fair comparison across the board.

My advice would be to find a hotel that you like first of all and once you have checked the reviews and are happy that you’d like to stay there do a search for the hotel on Google and see which companies offer a price for the room you’d like. Search a few websites and once you find the best deal call the hotel directly and say that you are interested in booking the room and have found it online for x amount and you were wondering if they could do anything to offer you a better price for booking directly.

Often hotels have quite a large margin on their rooms that they can reduce to get business directly so it’s always worth asking as even if they cannot beat the price you may be able to get them to throw in some extras like a bottle of wine in the room or a discount on dinner, either way if you don’t ask you won’t get!
