All of us want to have the best for the smallest price possible, and this is best shown while we are traveling. After all, traveling is considered being a pretty pricey hobby where absolutely everything needs money to be spent.
However, as always, the internet offers us a few ways how you can save money. This time let’s get acquainted with a few smart ways how you can book a hotel room a lot cheaper even in the most luxurious hotels around the globe.
A FEW SIMPLE TRICKS ON HOW TO MAKE LUXURIOUS HOTEL ROOMS CHEAPER
Call hotel directly. Avoiding middle management like a boss will guarantee you huge savings and can actually gift you pretty great upgrades on a room as well. So, skip the 800 reservation numbers and surf the web to find the number of a hotel you wish to stay at instead. This way you will decrease the overall bill, get a chance to bargain a little bit with a receptionist (but do that politely) and also get information about the rooms directly from the hotel itself!
Sign up for alerts of dropping prices. It is hard to monitor hotel prices every day, so let other do the work for you and better sign up for alerts showing you hotel rate droppings in the hotels or locations of your choice. Such service is provided by Hotels.com and Kayak or a few other websites online – Google it!
Be loyal. Being loyal pays off in every aspect of your life, so why not be a loyal client to one hotel chain – even the most luxurious one? Hotel owners love customers who always come back, and they are keen on pampering those lovely visitors either with amenities or discounts on room rates. You can also enlist yourself into special loyalty programs or get a membership card (all depends on a hotel chain).
Embrace couponing. Almost all hotel chains offer their clients a chance to reduce hotels rates by using special discount codes and coupons. Moreover, many hotel booking services do that too. Hotels.com, Hotwire, Priceline are good examples of such sites offering a broad range of price cut-offs. In some cases, you can get up to 60% off discount on selected hotels!
Look for perks from your credit card. Knew it or not, but a few credit card companies offer their loyal customers some perks while booking hotels rooms using their cards. For example, Discover and Capital One Venture gifts their clients either miles or bonus points which later can be used to reduce prices while booking a hotel room or a plane ticket. Check if your credit card can pamper you like this as well.
Book in advance. This should go without any saying, but we still need to mention it here – booking even the most luxurious hotel well in advance guarantees you savings and that is a fact! All you need to do is to plan your trip more carefully and book your hotel as soon as you decide to leave. In many cases, this type of booking can save up to half the price of the room compared with booking the week before the arrival date!
