Tips to Get the Best Hotel Deals for Your Next Vacation – Enjoy your Holiday

The best hotel deal would be one meeting your budget leaving plenty of cash for some holiday splurging. Here are some tips for enjoying the accommodation and allures of a holiday within your budget.

Forget the Age Old Standards

Age-old standards, in this case, refer to those little coffee sachets, cute shampoo bottles and decorative mini bars of soap.

Did you know that even five-star hotels are now charging for morning coffee while many have discovered that attaching shampoo and soap dispensers to the walls are much more cost effective than the little spa treats we most often take home? Instead of hankering for these nostalgic little 'amenities' look for a hotel that offers basic needs while providing the best comforts you can afford.

Of course, old world personal charm does still exist at some resorts and its word of mouth, personal experience or a very good review on Excellent Hotel Deals that will enlighten you on special offers and facilities proffered.

Always Compare Prices

Comparing prices with online hotel booking sites will give you the best deal. There are sites that act as aggregator bringing together prices and deals for you to check against while others let you bid for accommodation at the price you are willing to pay.

Of course, you must keep in mind that hotel booking websites don't always disclose the entire cost of reserving certain hotel accommodation.

Regulatory surcharges and booking fees may not be disclosed at the point of booking online; as such it's wise to call and check with the chosen resort about the total cost including service fees and tax.

Try to Have Flexible Travel Dates

Surprisingly a day before or after your chosen arrival or departure dates may yield excellent hotel deals; this is why being flexible with dates before choosing a hotel will be immensely beneficial.

There are many apps and websites that let you enter your planned dates in order to search for the best hotel deals and destinations to travel within your chosen period of time.

Always research well, before settling on a set period of travel.

Budget for Extra Amenities

Remember that today's hotels don't always provide traditional amenities free of charge. Although you may get a hot deal on your hotel room all other 'extras' will be an additional charge.

Little things like using cabanas, a sun umbrella, the ironing board, requesting a morning newspaper with coffee and even a valet service could mean an extra charge.

5

Look for Hidden Discounts

There are some credit cards or memberships at certain associations that would entitle you to a discount at selected hotels.

Search the internet for websites that offer details on benefits offered by hotels to certain clubs, cards or organizations. If you have a preferred hotel chain do subscribe to its e-newsletter.

You will then receive regular updates on special offers, deals, and discounts to any clubs, cards or societies partnering up with the resort.
