Ultimate List Of Hacks & Tips To Book The Best Hotel Room With Very Less Money
1. GET PRICE ALERTS
Websites such as Kayak & Expedia allows you to sign up for price alerts of particular hotels or dates as per your interest. Whenever the price drops, you get instant notification in your mail. These websites are actually not OTA (Online Travel agency) themselves, but metasearch engines who look at all other sites to find you the best deals. Personally, I love using Kayak.
2. FIND OTHER TRAVELER’S UNWANTED ROOMS
Some hotel accomodations become available after late cancellations. These are then made available at reduced price. This is what websites such as Cancelon specialize at.
3. HOLIDAY MEMBERSHIP
You do not have to buy them. Many people buy these memberships and are not able to travel due to some reasons. But these memberships involve a clause that they have to use this facility within a time period. What you have to do is to strike a deal with them. This is a win win situation for both parties.
4. LOOK FOR HOTEL COUPON DEALS
5. WEBSITES LIKE AIRBNB & OYOROOMS
Here you can get 5 star villas at the cost of 3 star ones. Also 3 star villas are available at guest house price. Difference between OYO and Airbnb is that OYO has more hotel rooms whereas Airbnb has more residential plots.
6. TRAVEL COMPARE WEBSITES LIKE TRIVAGO, IXIGO ETC
Check these out for best deals by comparing your holiday package on different websites. Top 10 Hotel Booking Sites in India that offer killer deals and discounts are as follows: Make My Trip, Goibibo, Booking.com, Agoda, Expedia, Tripadvisor India, ixigo, OYORooms, Yatra, Trivago.
7. HOSTEL STAYS
8. OFFBEAT PLACES SUCH AS TENTS AND HUTS
Some hippies like to carry their rooms with themselves. No worry of booking or scenery. Place it wherever you want and get set for the night.
9. COUCH SURFING
These are totally FREE. Good for those who want to stay night on bed without spending anything. They are best for people who wants to experience local culture more deeply.
10. AIRLINE MILES USE FOR HOTEL ROOM BOOKING
Many airlines have Frequent Flyer Programme whereby you get points for travelling with them. For every mile that you cover with them, you get some points which can be later used to book hotel rooms.
11. GET A DAE (DIAL AND EXCHANGE)
DAE is a membership club of holiday property owners all over the world. They flexibly exchange holidays with other club members.
12. USE CREDIT CARD POINTS TO BOOK ROOMS
Most banks reward you with some points for every time you make a purchase using their credit card. However, ways to spend these points are limited involving fewer options. But Hotel Booking & Flight Booking are found almost everywhere.
13. ASK FOR DEALS
Negotiate with your chosen hotel directly. Most of the time, they will be wiling to give you 15% (on printed room rates) discount across the board. However, one caution: Negotiate clearly the charges before staying and ask questions regarding hidden charges.
