You have just received the word from your boss that he has given you two weeks off work and you are ready to take the family on a good vacation, where you can only forget everything and have a good time. You have the destination picked up there is only one small problem and it is booking a hotel room reservation. What hotel are you going to go to and how do you get the best possible discount? I have been on many holidays in my 40 years of life and I will try to give you some tips on how to properly book a room in a good hotel and get the best price possible.
The first thing you should do when looking for a hotel room reservation is to let your mouse go and go online. Most hotel rooms have special offers on online hotel booking sites, giving you a discount of between 30% and 50% off some good rooms at 3 star and 4 star hotels. One reason why these online websites are allowed to give you such a big discount is that they save the hotels a lot for marketing expenses. It costs much less to get a lead through the website, so it would be through conventional marketing methods. Another little secret you should know is that many good hotels these days have a few empty rooms not rented out (and that's probably because of the recession we're in) and they lose money because of this and they have to get these rooms rented out as quickly as possible and will usually bend backwards to give you a good rate
Now that you are armed with all this knowledge, the next step would be to shop around on all hotel hotel booking sites to see which would give you the best discounted rate possible in a room.
There are many brand names for internet hotel booking sites like Travelocity and hotels.com, and these are among the most well-known websites on the internet, but are the cheapest? These sites are very well-known because you have seen all their advertisements on the internet, but remember that these ads cost a huge amount of money to pay for and guess who usually ends up paying for them?
That's right, you and me. There are many online booking sites on the medium-sized online, so make sure that when you shop around for a room to go through these websites, then they too do not have to quantify millions of dollars for TV commercials, meaning that they can pass a greater number of savings and discounted prices to you. Do not fall into additional advertising methods and you will usually get the best price.
Good luck and have a safe and fun vacation.
