The costs involved in travel are one of the many reasons why people choose to put it off. Gas, airfare, hotels, all of these can quickly put a dent in your wallet. Speaking of hotels, unless you plan on staying with friends or family you’re going to need a hotel, and these tips could help you save a few bucks,
If you decide to directly contact the hotel to book your stay, be mindful of how you ask for rates. Instead of asking for the best deal, ask the person you’re speaking to for the lowest rate that’s non-refundable. You’re essentially saying the same thing, but you have improved odds of actually receiving the best rate available.
Inquire about discounts. If you’re a member of AARP or AAA, you may be able to snag a room or at least few perks at a discount. AAA members may be eligible to save up to fifty percent at certain hotel chains, so it’s definitely worth looking into.
Did you know hotel websites often track your browsing behavior? This can be a problem as many of them will change the price. Let’s say you’re planning a trip for the summer. You decide to check out rates to get an idea of what the asking price is, only to return the next day or so and realize it’s gone up dramatically. You can combat this by clearing your browser cookies or making sure to visit hotel websites using your browser’s private mode.
