How To Save Hotel Costs During Your Travel?

Are you a frequent business traveler or tourist traveler?  Then use the below tips to save on hotel costs during your travel:

  1. Distance checking: When you book a hotel room in an unknown city, check how far the hotel is from the airport, the railway station.  In order to promote bookings, some hotels wrongly claim that they are nearby to tourist attractions and amenities in that city.  They charge excess rent based on this.  Check online map distances to verify their claim.
  2. Check preference costs: Sometimes when you ask for particular preferences like an extra bed, sea-facing room etc. you tend to incur more rent.  In case you are not so specific about these preferences, forego them.  Certain times, you stay for just a few hours (or) one night in order to have a transit break.  During those times don’t waste money by opting for preferences.
  3. Mingle with the staff: If you show a courteous attitude towards the staff, you will get freebies/free perks.
  4. Bundling: Travel websites offer concessions when the air ticket cost is bundled with hotel room rent.  So, make the booking in such a way.
  5. Analyze package deals: Packages offered by hotels may have hidden costs.   For example, during the stay, you may be interested to read more about crypto code on the net or watch movies.  In that case, check if the package includes free wi-fi.  Certain hotels offer limited facilities under the package cost.  Usage more than the limit might cost you more.
  6. 6. Parking: Beforehand check whether parking is free or paid.  You have to select the rent based on this fact.  Check whether they can offer discounted parking rates.  If your stay duration is longer this will save quite a sum.
  7. Minibar: Check the bills issued by the hotel for the mini bar expenses properly.  In this area, there is a larger scope for intentional miscalculation or mistake.  If you find overbilling, point it out and get it rectified.
  8. Special vacations: If you travel for a special vacation like spending your wedding anniversary or birthday communicate this to the hotel.  You can get a few offers/freebies based on this.

Certainly, every business incurs a considerable amount towards travel expenses.  Especially when your business is marketing-based, you and your employees travel more.  Even if you take up travel as a passion, the money saved from hotel expense can be usefully spent on something else.  Use the above tips and save a good amount during each travel.
