Holiday Comfort Easy on the Purse — How to Save Money on Hotel Bookings

If you’re keen to get away but don’t have a massive budget, don’t despair. Whether you have your heart set on a Mediterranean beach resort or a European city break, there are all sorts of ways to bag a bargain. One of the big things you can save money on is accommodation (thankfully!). From discount hotel sites to last minute deals, here’s how:

Discount hotel sites  

There’s a website for just about everything these days, and that goes for finding discount hotel rooms as well as sorting out all your additional travel needs. You can save several dollars by using discount sites instead of booking directly with the hotel. Check out the location and facilities carefully first, if you have the chance, so that you know exactly what to expect. Read reviews by previous guests if you need extra peace of mind. On many discount hotel sites you can set your budget and location, so finding affordable accommodation shouldn’t be a problem.

Last minute deals

Many hotels reduce the price of their rooms closer to the booking date. You’ll not always see these bargain deals on the websites of the hotels themselves, but more often on last minute holiday website. Make sure you’re using a reputable site and that you really are getting a bargain by comparing like for like.

Stay out of town

Hotels in the city or right by the edge of a beach tend to be more expensive than the ones that are a few miles away. If you don’t mind travelling by public transport, or are taking a car, then browse hotels that are a little ‘out of the way.’ These hotels can match the pleasantness and comfort of the inner-city hotels and have the same facilities. You may even be able to enjoy more peaceful surroundings.

Opt for a chain hotel

In many cases the budget chain hotels are much cheaper than privately owned alternatives. Although you don’t get the same character and charm, if money is your main concern then a budget chain hotel could just be the best way to go.

Travel outside peak dates

For those with some flexibility over when they can travel it makes sense to book outside of peak dates. Prices go up during school holidays and around public holidays such as Christmas and Easter. Book during term-time or in low season and you can stay in the same hotel for a fraction of the cost.

By browsing online and carefully considering your dates of travel you can save a significant amount of money when booking a hotel. Do you have any additional money saving tips?
