Affordable Hotel Rates

If you are traveling on a tight budget, you might be interested in knowing the best way to shop around for the best hotel rates. Unfortunately, the best method is not driving around from hotel to hotel during your vacation and asking each hotel’s front desk for their rate. This method of comparison shopping wastes valuable time that you could spend enjoying yourself. In addition, it can also serve to make your traveling companions tired and cranky, especially if you are traveling with children. The following are two fairly simple ways to do your comparison shopping for hotel rates.

Finding the Best Hotel Rates

If you are planning a trip, whether for vacation or business, and want to get the best hotel rates possible, your best bet is to do your comparison shopping before you ever leave you home. Most hotel chains have websites that future guests can use to find the perfect hotel for them. These sites allow you to locate hotels in the city that you are traveling to and compare rates. Within the website you can compare rates of the same hotel in different locations, for example a hotel in the middle of downtown and one, of the same kind, on the outskirts of town. In addition, many of these hotel chain websites tell you how far each hotel is from major attractions and venues in their respective cities. These attractions and venues might include the downtown area, the airport, and convention center. Using a hotel’s website also allows you to customize your hotel search by searching only for hotels that feature the amenities that you would like to have. For example, you can look for hotels based on whether they have a pool, laundry facilities, and/or allow pets. Also, after you have finished your comparison shopping, many hotel websites allow you to make your reservations through the website.

If the idea of looking at several different websites to do your comparisons does not sound appealing to you, there is another way to search for the best hotel rates. Many travel company websites have features with which you can look for the best price for a hotel in the same way that you search for the best price for a flight. These websites compare across many different hotel chains so that you can look for the best price with the click of one button.
