Book a 5 star hotel for the price of 3 stars? from now on you can!

For many people, it’s still exciting to book a hotel room yourself, because do I not pay too much? is it the hotel I’m looking for ?. In addition, we regularly ask you how to find a good deal or offer for a good hotel. That’s why we give you free 5 best tips to book the best hotel for the best price. If you follow these 5 steps, you will never pay too much for your vacation.

TIP 1. Search hotels through a so-called meta hotels search engine: we always use our partner, A meta search engine searches not only for the best deals of the hotels themselves, but also in other regular hotel search engines and combines these deals and offers.

TIP 2. After searching the search engine, look at the hotel website: a hotel search engine searches in all kinds of databases, including those of the hotels themselves, but hotels sometimes have a special deal or offer on the website that a search engine can not find . And sometimes a search engine does not get a particular offer, such as a free museum ticket, free train or taxi to hotel etc ..

TIP 3. Call the hotel yourself: After following the first two tips, you have usually found the best hotel offer. Only, have you found the cheapest offer from the search engine and book via this website, the hotel often has to pay a booking fee to the search engine, which can be up to 25% of the booking amount. If you call or email the hotel in question and indicate that you want to book through a search engine, they often want to offer an extra discount or offer free breakfast if you book directly through the hotel!

Tip 4. Be flexible with your travel dates: Hotels and destinations are in many types, and different price tables are used for different dates. For example, a hotel aimed at business travelers will be cheaper and a tourist hotel will therefore be more expensive on weekdays. In addition, some destinations are expensive on weekends, Las Vegas sometimes up to 100%, but very cheap throughout the week. For destinations like Dubai or New York, the weekend is cheaper than a weekday. Playing with your travel dates therefore pays, but only if you are flexible. If you stuck to fixed data, unfortunately, this tip will not work. It is also advisable to look for a good price on a regular basis, one week a hotel may be expensive, but if you are looking for a week later, the same hotel on the same travel date can be very cheap.

TIP 5. Do not stuck to a particular hotel or city: For example, if you want to Amsterdam, you can search for a 4 star hotel in Amsterdam. But sometimes a 4 star hotel in Zaandam or around Schiphol is cheaper and you are as fast in the center of Amsterdam by bus, train or metro as well as in a hotel somewhere in Amsterdam. This is true of course for any destination in the world. Additionally, be flexible with your hotel choice, if you’re never looking for a 5 star hotel because you find it too expensive, but only for 4 or 3 stars, you can sometimes miss out on great deals, which may make a 5-star hotel even cheaper than a 3 star accommodation.

With our free tips, from now on you can find and book a cheap hotel or hotel offer, and keep your holiday, business trip or city trip affordable.
