How to Get Cheap Accommodation When Booking a Hotel

how to get cheap accommodation when you book a hotel

So you are going on a trip, but your budget is not very large.As you know most of your budget will be spent on accommodation. You want to rent a hotel but at the same time get a favorable offer for the price and quality. Do you want to get cheap accommodation when you are booking a hotel? Then I will tell you how to get the best options for you. You can find a very good hotel option at an attractive price.

How to book a cheap hotel?

Here are my tips on how to get a cheap hotel:

  • Always, remember always, be prepared in advance.
  • And after, determine what your budget is. Know exactly how much you can spend.
  • View all the sights that interest you and proceed from this look at the optimal location. If housing is too far away, you will be constantly wasted to travel every day to get to the museum or other attractions, which in some countries is quite expensive.
  • If the trip is to take place during the peak season, always book in advance. Later prices will be much higher.
  • Use several sites to compare prices. And then go to the official site of the hotel that you have chosen. Sometimes there are special offers and discounts.
  • Сompare the price and the hotel itself. Sometimes a difference of ten dollars will give you a larger room and breakfast for free.
  • Look at a few blogs and sites about how best to book hotels. So you will form a vision that suits you.
  • Read reviews on several resources like Tripadvisor and Google about the hotels that you liked.
  • Do not look at the number of stars in the hotel. Sometimes a three-star hotel is much more comfortable and practical more expensive four-star.
  • Be sure that you need a hotel if not – you can go and other options, so read an article that will help you

And after that all you need this list-

Absolutely good booking sites you need to know

HotelsCombined – This is an excellent site aggregator, allowing you to choose a hotel and see its price on various resources.

Priceline.com – Also good site to find cheap accommodation. Plus they have a special option Express Deal when you do not know the name of the hotel, but it’s a special very good price. You can choose the location and stars of the hotel without a name. You can save 18% – 60% by the deal.

Booking.com – A proven site for booking hotels all over the world. Very often, reservations can cancel without losing money. If you booked it multiple times, your account acquires the genius status and you receive special offers.

Agoda.com – This is a wholesale placement site that has the influence and purchasing power for negotiating and buying hotel rooms in bulk and on a regular basis. The best way to use if need to book cheap accommodation in Southeast Asia. Its top specialist in Asia.

Hotelz.com – This is an option for those who want to save, by sacrificing comfort. The most budget hostels and campsites as well as the university dorms. The best one to find cheap accommodation in Boston.

Now you’re almost ready to make the right choice.

Other tips about how to get cheap accommodation

  • Compare prices on all resources above. Perhaps there are special offers somewhere.
  • But, if somewhere the price of $ 320 is indicated, but today and only today the number is worth $ 60 not to book. Go to the official site of the hotel. Most often this is just a trick.
  • Agoda.com produces more results than booking.com in Asia, but not always. For example, in Ubud, it turned out that the booking.com base is more.
  • If you need a hotel in the US or Europe it’s better to use booking.com
  • But, aggregators find more hotels than booking systems, for example, HotelsCombined .

Now having reserved a suitable hotel it remains to learn  what food to take on the road  so as not to spend a lot of money and be full when moving.
